Here is why you still need fat in your diet

Published

on

It’s not good for your body to be deficient in fat, because it needs some fat in order to function properly. If you don’t consume enough fat, this can be reflected in your health and well-being.

Of course, we are talking about healthy fats, which are found in fish, eggs, olive oil, nuts and the like. Make sure that you treat yourself with a juicy avocado and supply your body with these vital substances!

WHERE TO GET HEALTHY FATS?

Healthy fats are natural and of high quality. We recommend you to use coconut oil for salads and olive oil and macadamia oil for cooking. If you use butter, it should be, if possible, from organic origin. As often as possible serve on your plate small fish (anchovies, sardines, herring…) or large cold sea fish (mackerel, salmon, tuna). If you eat meat, buy from local farms, where the animals grazed on pastures. Products that are also rich in good fats are eggs (the yolk), avocados, nuts and bacon, but don’t overeat them. Fat can also be obtained from certain cheeses and cream. If you are intolerant to lactose, we recommend goat cheese and milk, which contains less lactose than cow’s milk and its products. In any case, avoid harmful trans fats, which are found in processed foods. Some countries have even banned them!

SYMPTOMS OF LACK OF HEALTHY FATS

  1. You are always hungry. Or at least you feel this way – even when you eat a larger meal. The body requires more time to metabolize fat than carbohydrates, therefore, with foods rich in fat we are better satiated.

  2. Your skin is no longer vital as it used to. The skin is dull, flaky and unusually dry. You can also look old for your age. Healthy fats are essential for healthy skin; they help in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins from food, which help the skin retain moisture.

  3. You have irregular periods. The body needs healthy fats to regulate the hormones. If you are deficient in fats, it can cause disruption of the menstrual cycle. If you have irregular periods the reason may be fat deficiency, of course maybe the problem lies somewhere else and it is better in this case to visit a gynecologist.

  4. You cannot concentrate. If you are consciously avoiding fat you intake less calories. The consequence of this is that you are often hungry, and the concentration drops.

  5. You are anxious, maybe even a little depressed. The reason for this situation can be quite elsewhere, but it may be a sign of a lack of essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6). They can be found in fish, flax and chia seeds. If anxiety occurs overnight, regularly enjoy oily fish such as salmon, fresh tuna or sardines for two weeks. Observe if the situation has improved.

  6. You are sensitive to noise. If you panic when loud, when unexpected sound comes, the reason for this may be just lack of fat. The study, which was conducted by the American Psychological Association, has demonstrated that mice that eat enough omega-3 fatty acids, are not afraid of unexpected sounds – as opposed to those who lacked these fats.

  7. You are tired after 20 minutes of exercise. During physical activity the body first uses carbohydrates, however for further action it relies on the calories from fat. If this is not enough, you’re exhausted soon after the start of the physical activity.

  8. You have a bad memory. Many studies have shown that traditional Mediterranean diet, which includes fatty foods such as olive oil, nuts, fish, etc. improves memory. If your memory is bad lately, this may be a sign that you should include more fats in your diet.

Sports head injuries Balanced reportage is required – Experts

Published

on

A group of more than 60 leading international neuroscientists, including Mark Herceg, PhD, a neuropsychologist at Northwell Health’s Phelps Hospital in Sleepy Hollow, NY, and a member of The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, published a correspondence today in The Lancet Neurology, asking for balance when reporting on sports-related injury chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). CTE is a type of dementia associated with exposure to repeated concussions, and has been linked with a variety of contact sports such as boxing, football, American football and rugby.



Although CTE is commonly featured in the news media and discussed among peers, the medical community is just beginning to understand how to recognize the disease, guidelines for how to assess its severity have yet to be established.

“We don’t currently have a clear understanding of the link between CTE pathology and any specific symptoms,” noted Dr. Herceg. “It’s important to note to the public at large that CTE is at an early stage of scientific and medical understanding, with many important aspects of the disease yet to be established.”

“Dr. Herceg and his colleague’s CTE research is timely and impactful as a major step forward to more clearly defining the risk and prevalence of this important syndrome,” said Kevin J. Tracey, MD, president and CEO of the Feinstein Institute.

Mother bags 4 years jail term for drawing son’s blood.

Published

on

A Danish court on Thursday sentenced a mother to four years in jail for aggravated abuse for having unnecessarily drawn a half-litre (one pint) of blood from her son weekly for five years.

A trained nurse, the 36-year-old woman began drawing her son’s blood when he was 11 months old, averaging about once a week for the next five years.

The mother said she would not appeal the verdict handed down by the district court in the western town of Herning.



“It’s not a decision that I took consciously. I don’t know when I started doing what I had no right to do. It came gradually. I threw the blood down the toilet and put the syringes in the garbage,” she told the court.

The boy, today aged seven and who lives with his father, suffered an intestinal illness shortly after birth but as the years went by doctors could not explain why he had so little blood in his system.

To remedy the situation, doctors gave him 110 blood transfusions over the years.

They eventually grew suspicious of the mother, and police began investigating her.

She was arrested in September 2017 carrying a bag of blood.

On social media, she had presented herself as a single mother fighting for her sick son.

Psychiatric experts told the court they believed the mother suffers from Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a rare condition in which a person, usually a mother, fabricates an illness for a dependent and puts them through unnecessary medical treatment.

However, they deemed her healthy enough to go to prison.

She has been barred from the nursing profession.
