Can Food Cause Pain?

There is real truth behind the “gut feeling”.

Our intestines do more than simply process food and the wrong foods can wreak havoc with our bodies.

Too much sugar, starch and fat are the leading offenders when it comes to pain because of their inflammatory affects on our bodies.

Avoiding inflammation through diet is the best way stay healthy.

Scientists are making a strong link between our food choices and pain.
About 70% of our immune cells are in our digestive system, making direct contact with the food we enjoy every day. If the immune system is triggered by bacteria in food, or flags a food as an allergen, or has an imbalance of important hormones such as insulin, it can set off the red alert of inflammation.

For example, the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported that processed sugars and other high-glycemic starches increase inflammation, which causes pain, overheating, redness and swelling.
While inflammation is an important part of the body’s healing process, chronic inflammation is at the root of many deadly diseases. The great news is that we can completely heal and prevent chronic inflammation with an eating plan.

Should Everyone Avoid Gluten?

Is gluten just the gimmick of the moment?

It seems like everyone is gluten intolerant, gluten sensitive or suffering from celiac disease these days.

But just who is really suffering from gluten?

The American Gastroenterological Association says that much more needs to be known about gluten sensitivity before official guidelines can be devised—including how many people suffer from it and to what degree.

About 1% of people in the U.S. have celiac disease, a fourfold increase over the past 50 years. Some gastroenterologists say that for every patient with celiac disease, they see six to eight who have the same symptoms, but without the tell-tale antibodies or intestinal damage needed to confirm celiac.

Evidence is mounting that gluten sensitivity does exist. Dr. Fasano and colleagues last year compared blood samples and intestinal biopsies from people with suspected gluten sensitivity to those with confirmed celiac disease and healthy controls, and found distinct differences in each.

Ersatz Chicken Cause Illness

Imitation meat products cause allergic reaction and illness but not any more so than soy products, nuts, shellfish dairy or eggs.

The FDA has stepped in, however, has found no reason extend warnings against Quorn.

Quorn products, sold at popular grocery chains including Whole Foods, come in the shape of artificial “Chik’n” patties or nuggets – or even cylindrical beef approximations or turkey “roasts.” The main ingredient is a so-called mycoprotein — protein extracted from a microscopic fungus. Quorn has sparked a yum or eww debate among vegetarians since it hit the U.S. market nearly a decade ago.

It is best to keep in mind that imitation anything is usually filled with preservatives, and artificial colors and flavors therefore raising the chances of having and adverse reaction to something in the preparation
