The Wonders Of Avocado Pear For The Health

AvocadoSliced Avocado pear: Original article published in AWESOME tips.

You’ve probably seen avocados being touted as a heart-healthy super-food in recent years. Realistically, the truth isn’t too far off from the hype. The next time youre grabbing that burrito or turkey sandwich, you might want to consider adding a healthy dollop of guacamole. Here are four reasons that you should consider eating a little bit of avocado each day.

1. You may reduce your risk of heart disease.

Heart disease is the number 1 killer in the United States, affecting nearly 27 million adults, so it only makes sense that we would want to protect ourselves by being more health-conscious in our dietary choices. Avocados have been shown to positively benefit our cardiovascular system in a number of ways due to its low saturated fat and high unsaturated fat content (predominantly the monounsaturated fat (MUFA) variety). Consuming excess saturated fat (>10% of total calories) may raise your LDL and HDL cholesterol and triglycerides. On the contrary, consuming adequate unsaturated fat in your diet may help lower LDL-cholesterol (bad cholesterol), maintain HDL-cholesterol (good cholesterol) and potentially improve your insulin sensitivity.

In addition its nutritious fat content, avocados also contain a potent mix of nutrients (e.g., potassium and lutein), including plenty of antioxidants such as carotenoids, callexanthophylls and phenols. These compounds can help prevent inflammation and oxidative stress in the blood vessels while facilitating improved blood flow.

2. You may have an easier time maintaining your weight

Eating fat to lose fat; who would have thought? Avocados can help with weight-loss and maintaining a healthy BMI by promoting a feeling of satiety. A recent study showed that including avocado in meals helped extend feelings of fullness and reduced the desire to overindulge. The belly-filling properties of avocados is aided by their high fiber content, about 14g per fruit on average. In addition, higher avocado consumption has been associated with smaller waistlines and lower BMIs in observational studies. Lastly, some research has even shown that weight-loss diets higher in MUFA, like the kind avocados are packed with, may prove healthier for your heart than low-fat weight-loss diets.

3. You might reduce your risk of cancer

Avocados provide us with numerous phytochemicals that may help prevent cancer, including the previously discussed xanthophylls and phenols. A protein compound called glutathione, along with the xanthophyll lutein (both found in avocados), have been associated with decreased rates of oral cancer. Preliminary data also show promising results for avocados potential role in reducing risk of both breast and prostate cancers. Additionally, preliminary studies demonstrate that a specific type of fav derived from avocados is able to exert anti-cancer effects on acute myeloid leukemia cells. Together, these studies show that further research needs to be conducted to draw more conclusive results.

4. You will protect your skin and eyes well into old age

As it turns out, avocado carotenoids do quite a number of things for our body. Both lutein and another compound found in avocados called zeaxanthin can slow age-related ocular decline and prevent vision dysfunction. In addition, these same two nutrients also act as buffers against oxidative UV damage, keeping our skin smooth and healthy. The bio-availability (ease of absorption by our body) of carotenoids from avocados compared to many other fruits and vegetables makes eating avocados every day a sensible choice.

Obesity: A Major Public Health Epidemic In Both The Developed And The Developing World.

OBY 5

“Worldwide obesity has more than doubled since 1980. In 2014, more than 1.9 billion adults, 18 years and older, were overweight. Of these over 600 million were obese, 39% of adults aged 18 years and over were overweight in 2014, and 13% were obese. 

Most of the world’s population live in countries where overweight and obesity kills more people than underweight. 42 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese in 2013. Obesity is preventable,” according to the World Health Organisation. 

In an effort to fight against increasing obesity, the government of Dubai recently offered residents, one gram of gold, which worth approximately $45 at that time, for every kilogram of weight loss. To make it a successful program, the weight loss was fixed in the time of Ramadan, when every Muslim eat less. The fact is serious obesity sends people early to the grave.

Food is extremely delicious, especially when well prepared to meet the right taste, but if you don’t have self-control, the ability or strength to fight food addiction, then you should know that you are inviting so many health hazards into your life. People suffering from obesity can tell you about criticisms and gossips against them daily in public, office or wherever they go.

In Europe, the United Kingdom has the higher rate of obesity and overweight people than anywhere in Western Europe, according to an authoritative global study that raises fresh concerns about the likely health consequences. In the UK, 67 percent of men and 57 percent of women are either fighting against obese or overweight. Published in the Lancet Medical Journal, according to the Global Burden of Disease Study, more than a quarter of children, 26 percent of boys and 29 percent of girls are also overweight in the UK.

Going to the gym to keep the body fit is a daunting task for many. If you want to avoid going to the gym to work against overweight, then eating the right food should be everyone’s priority. One needs to understand what some foods are high in saturated fats and cholesterol, you must, therefore, avoid these foods which build up in your stomach, arteries, and veins.

For example, the yolk of an egg has 300 mg of cholesterol; it is, therefore, better and healthy to eat the white instead. Eating 10 whole eggs in a week gives one 3 grams of cholesterol in your body. Another way of avoiding obesity is to stop eating fried foods since they absorb the fats that they are cooked in.

There are so many recommended books and online articles in health journals, on how to avoid or deal with obesity and overweight. You can do it too since many have done it. Prevention is always better than cure.

In 1989, he built a company called Courtroom Sciences. The venture helped trial lawyers build cases using psychology by conducting mock trials, behavioral analysis, jury selection and mediation.

It was through Courtroom Sciences that Dr. Phil met Oprah Winfrey.
