I extend this research and say: you are what your 7 generations ate. Not only food, but also mental imprints, habits, conditioning and all!

So, your food habits (or all habits) in teen age or youth , are not only affecting your old age but all upcoming generations! Don’t curse them by your mindless living!

If you have teen-age boy and girl, groom them. Explain them importance of living and eating disciplined food!

Do read, learn and take care for all would-be mothers! Parenting is National duty!

You are what your mother eats

For years, pregnant mothers have questioned their nutritional habits: “Will eating more cause my baby to be overweight?”  Or, “I’m eating for two, so it won’t hurt to have an extra serving, right?”

While many factors, such as the age of the mother, overall health and genetics ultimately play a role, the correlation between a mother’s nutrition habits and metabolism has been proved to directly impact the growth of her child. And researchers at OHSU in Portland, Oregon, believe they may be one step closer to knowing why.

In a study published online in Nature Communications, the research team, led by Jae W. Lee, Ph.D., has demonstrated that two neurons key to growth and metabolism — GHRH and AgRP — are developmentally interconnected.

Located in the hypothalamus region of the brain, within a grouping of neurons known as the arcuate nucleus, GHRH, or growth hormone-release hormone, neurons orchestrate body growth and maturation. Meanwhile, AgRP, or Agouti-related peptide, neurons stimulate feeding and suppress energy usage.

प्राण वाहक Fore-tellers fruit trees : Mango

0

maxresdefault

Trees and plants are called औषध in Veda. It is not a random statement! They indeed are! Plant based Food is our primary medicine!Longer the tree lives, more it can codify environment markers into fruit’s genes (आम,जामुन ). One can beat any climate change! Think about it!

Right, mango is called King of the fruits. But do we really have access to pure and real stuff?

Do you know why mango is so great fruit?

There is a saying in Gujarati: ઉતાવળે આંબા ના પાકે.

It means, Mango trees don’t grow in haste. They need time.

With hybridization and grafting, we reduced the duration in which mango tree can bear fruits.

Is it useful? Can such mangoes bear benefits like protection against inflammation like cancer?

Fruit trees and food crops are fore-tellers. They are essential element in food feedback chain. They predict the future (based on past and present) and parcel protection as fruits for पशु (including humans). So that we can face the challenges in form of extreme weather events.

You many call it antioxidant and what not. Basically, it is God’s blessings.

And for this reason, only local fruits and crops are advisable. Exotic does not help much.

Naturally, mango tree takes 20-25 years before it can give fruits in abundance. More time spent alive, more environmental information is codified in mango’s genes. So when we eat fruit from such mango trees, we naturally get all protection learning against environmental odds which mango tree has accumulated during past 20 odd years in fruit’s genes, bacteria and viruses. Such trees can bestow real essence in their fruits. Essence = प्राण = Avoidance of cancer and diabetes.

What is happening now?

1) For greed, we use कलमी trees. These trees give fruits within 3-4 years. Not much experiences with global environmental events compare to real mango trees planted 20-30 years back. Lack of Essence = प्राण. So not much helpful in prevention of Cancer and Diabetes

2) Chemical pesticides and hormone injections to increase yield

3) Unnatural ripen processes

All benefits compromised. Action items for all mango lovers : Plant mango trees this monsoon so your grandchildren will get real fruit benefits. There is saying in Gujarati: ઉતાવળે આંબા ના પાકે. Mango cannot be ripen in haste and hurry. But then who has time to focus so much on food? We have all the time to discuss Bombay Velvet but food? Another such essence-rich, प्राणयुक्त fruit is अनार દાડમ. But now farmers harvest it so early and unnaturally that all essence is compromised.Real essence of mango is in its seed. Pure consciousness. will try to write about it someday.


Mango health benefits


For example, a new study in Photodermatology, Photoimmunology, and Photomedicine reports that mango extract given to mice protected against photoaging (translation: skin damage such as wrinkles and skin cancer) associated with ultraviolet B rays. A Texas study reported that mango extract was effective in inhibiting colon cancer cell growth.

The roles of different dietary proteins in the aetiology of type 2 diabetes (T2D) remain unclear. We investigated the associations of dietary proteins with the risk of incident T2D in Finnish men from the prospective Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Risk Factor Study. The study included 2332 men aged 42–60 years at the baseline examinations in 1984–1989. Protein intakes were calculated from 4-d dietary records. Incident T2D was determined by self-administered questionnaires, fasting blood glucose measurements, 2-h oral glucose tolerance tests, and with national registers. The multivariable-adjusted risk of T2D on the basis of protein intakes was compared by the Cox proportional hazard ratios (HR). During the mean follow-up of 19·3 years, 432 incident T2D cases were identified. Total, animal, meat or dairy product protein intakes were not associated with risk of T2D when the potential confounders were accounted for. Plant (multivariable-adjusted extreme-quartile HR 0·65; 95 % CI 0·42, 1·00; P trend 0·04) and egg (HR 0·67; 95 % CI 0·44, 1·00; P trend 0·03) protein intakes were associated with a decreased risk of T2D. Adjustments for BMI, plasma glucose and serum insulin slightly attenuated associations. Replacing 1 % energy from carbohydrates with energy from protein was associated with a 5 % (95 % CI 0, 11) increased risk of T2D, but adjustment for fibre intake attenuated the association. Replacing 1 % of energy from animal protein with energy from plant protein was associated with 18 % (95 % CI 0, 32) decreased risk of T2D. This association remained after adjusting for BMI. In conclusion, favouring plant and egg proteins appeared to be beneficial in preventing T2D.

चिकेन खाना बंद करें
कल एक मुल्ला जी मेरे पास आए अपनी 99 किलो की बेग़म को लेकर। आते ही कहने लगे – डाकसाब बेग़म को दुबला कर दीजिये, आपने फलां का वजन कम कर दिया, फलां को फिर से जवान बना दिया।
बेग़म भी कहने लगीं, “मैंने हर कोशिश कर ली, वीएलसीसी भी कर लिया, थोड़ा कम होता है फिर पहले से भी ज्यादा हो जाता है।“
“कब से बढ़ रहा है?” मैंने पूंछा
“जब से छोटी बेटी हुई, अप्रेसन से”
(सर्जरी = एंटिबायोटिक्स)
मैंने मुल्ला जी से पूंछा, “आप क्या काम करते हैं?”
“पॉल्ट्री फार्म है”
“कैसा चल रहा है?”
“बढ़िया, 50 दिनों में ब्रायलर ढाई किलो का हो जाता है”
“कैसे?”
“पहले ही दिन से दवाई देना शुरू कर देते हैं, खूब खाता है, खूब फूलता है”
(दवाई = एंटिबायोटिक्स)
बेग़म को चिकेन पसंद है और फिर घर की पॉल्ट्री।
मुल्ला जी ने बताया कि बाज़ार में 100% चिकेन दवाई वाला है, उसके बगैर उनका वजन बहुत धीमे-धीमे बढ़ता है, मंहगा पढ़ता है।
फिलहाल मैंने सुल्ताना जी को चिकेन से भैंसे के गोश्त पर शिफ्ट कर दिया है। (कहीं यह गैर-कानूनी तो नहीं है?)
एफ़बी मित्रो,
एंटिबायोटिक्स से लबरेज होने के कारण चिकेन खाना सेहत के लिए हानिकारक है इसलिए आप सब को भी सलाह है कि इसे खाना बंद कर दें, तभी खाएं जब खुद का पाला हुआ हो वह भी बगैर दवाई के। मटन या भैंसे के गोश्त में फिलहाल इतनी दिक्कत नहीं है।

AminoAcids

I shared it before. It is game of Prana. Amino Acids with their unique shape promoting feature, triggers many biological events, including cancer.

Cutting out certain amino acids – the building blocks of proteins – from the diet of mice slows tumour growth and prolongs survival, according to new research* published in Nature.

Researchers at the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute and the University of Glasgow found that removing two non-essential amino acids – serine and glycine – from the diet of mice slowed the development of lymphoma and intestinal cancer.

Serine?

Yeah! the meat, beef, dairy products like cheese etc.
And so called vegan diet – almonds, asparagus, chickpea, cow pea, flax-seed, lentils, sesame seed, walnut and soy beans.

glycine ?

Again meat!! Glycine is a conditional/non-essential amino acid found in bone broth, meat, poultry, eggs, dairy products and certain beans and veggies.

Amino acids in diet could be key to starving cancer

http://www.medicilon.com/201742415371-2/

Cancer cells have an unnatural appetite for certain amino acids—nonessential amino acids that healthy cells produce themselves, usually in amounts sufficient for ordinary metabolism. If cancer cells are denied these amino acids, they are weakened. They grow and proliferate more slowly. It is possible, moreover, that they could be more vulnerable to conventional cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

Processed Food and infinite craving loops

About infinite craving loops
========================

Food sold in bazaar also change with time. What you ate in 80s is drastically altered in 2015.

Original ingredients are replaced with chemicals. Not ordinary chemicals but the one that can generated infinite craving loops. You love the food once and become permanent customer 🙂

More than that, you lose interest in home cooked normal food. 🙂

“A diet of junk food not only makes rats fat, but also reduces their appetite for novel foods, a preference that normally drives them to seek a balanced diet, reports a study.”

“The interesting thing about this finding is that if the same thing happens in humans, eating junk food may change our responses to signals associated with food rewards,” says UNSW Professor Morris. “It’s like you’ve just had ice cream for lunch, yet you still go and eat more when you hear the ice cream van come by.”

Imagine if we expose kids to such infinite loops! Their majority growth period will be occupied in solving forced confusion and chaos due to chemically induced loops of craving.

Junk food makes rats lose appetite for balanced diet

https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2014-08/f-jfm082514.php

A diet of junk food not only makes rats fat, but also reduces their appetite for novel foods, a preference that normally drives them to seek a balanced diet, reports a study published in the open-access journal Frontiers in Psychology.

The study helps to explain how excessive consumption of junk food can change behavior, weaken self-control and lead to overeating and obesity.

The team of researchers, led by Professor Margaret Morris, Head of Pharmacology from the School of Medical Sciences, UNSW Australia, taught young male rats to associate each of two different sound cues with a particular flavor of sugar water – cherry and grape.

Healthy rats, raised on a healthy diet, stopped responding to cues linked to a flavor in which they have recently overindulged. This inborn mechanism, widespread in animals, protects against overeating and promotes a healthy, balanced diet.

But after 2 weeks on a diet that included daily access to cafeteria foods, including pie, dumplings, cookies, and cake – with 150% more calories – the rats’ weight increased by 10% and their behavior changed dramatically. They became indifferent in their food choices and no longer avoided the sound advertising the overfamiliar taste. This indicated that they had lost their natural preference for novelty. The change even lasted for some time after the rats returned to a healthy diet.

Cafeteria diet impairs expression of sensory-specific satiety and stimulus-outcome learning

https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpsyg.2014.00852/full

A range of animal and human data demonstrates that excessive consumption of palatable food leads to neuroadaptive responses in brain circuits underlying reward. Unrestrained consumption of palatable food has been shown to increase the reinforcing value of food and weaken inhibitory control; however, whether it impacts upon the sensory representations of palatable solutions has not been formally tested. These experiments sought to determine whether exposure to a cafeteria diet consisting of palatable high fat foods impacts upon the ability of rats to learn about food-associated cues and the sensory properties of ingested foods. We found that rats fed a cafeteria diet for 2 weeks were impaired in the control of Pavlovian responding in accordance to the incentive value of palatable outcomes associated with auditory cues following devaluation by sensory-specific satiety. Sensory-specific satiety is one mechanism by which a diet containing different foods increases ingestion relative to one lacking variety. Hence, choosing to consume greater quantities of a range of foods may contribute to the current prevalence of obesity. We observed that rats fed a cafeteria diet for 2 weeks showed impaired sensory-specific satiety following consumption of a high calorie solution. The deficit in expression of sensory-specific satiety was also present 1 week following the withdrawal of cafeteria foods. Thus, exposure to obesogenic diets may impact upon neurocircuitry involved in motivated control of behavior.

 

 

Emulsifiers and Processed Food

Show me one processed food item which does not have emulsifiers! Yes, show me one such product which is designed for long shelf life, polished look and structure that last for long and has no emulsifiers.

There are no such products. None. All processed food items contain one or another Emulsifiers. An emulsifier is a molecule in which one end likes to be in an oily environment and the other in a water environment. To make an oil-in-water emulsion, such as mayonnaise, droplets of oil molecules are surrounded by the oil-loving end of the emulsifier molecules.

Invite stress for digestive track who will have to work like your slave and then…one fine day…collapse!

Why such compulsive laziness that we don’t want to cook food for self, same life whom we love a lot?

One habit change and observe the magic. STOP eating processed food.

Widely Used Food Additive Promotes Colitis, Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome, Research Shows

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which includes Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, afflicts millions of people and is often severe and debilitating. Metabolic syndrome is a group of very common obesity-related disorders that can lead to type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular and/or liver diseases. Incidence of IBD and metabolic syndrome has been markedly increasing since the mid-20th century.

The term “gut microbiota” refers to the diverse population of 100 trillion bacteria that inhabit the intestinal tract. Gut microbiota are disturbed in IBD and metabolic syndrome. Chassaing and Gewirtz’s findings suggest emulsifiers might be partially responsible for this disturbance and the increased incidence of these diseases.

“A key feature of these modern plagues is alteration of the gut microbiota in a manner that promotes inflammation,” says Gewirtz.

“The dramatic increase in these diseases has occurred despite consistent human genetics, suggesting a pivotal role for an environmental factor,” says Chassaing. “Food interacts intimately with the microbiota so we considered what modern additions to the food supply might possibly make gut bacteria more pro-inflammatory.”

Addition of emulsifiers to food seemed to fit the time frame and had been shown to promote bacterial translocation across epithelial cells. Chassaing and Gewirtz hypothesized that emulsifiers might affect the gut microbiota to promote these inflammatory diseases and designed experiments in mice to test this possibility.

The team fed mice two very commonly used emulsifiers, polysorbate 80 and carboxymethylcellulsose, at doses seeking to model the broad consumption of the numerous emulsifiers that are incorporated into almost all processed foods. They observed that emulsifier consumption changed the species composition of the gut microbiota and did so in a manner that made it more pro-inflammatory. The altered microbiota had enhanced capacity to digest and infiltrate the dense mucus layer that lines the intestine, which is normally, largely devoid of bacteria. Alterations in bacterial species resulted in bacteria expressing more flagellin and lipopolysaccharide, which can activate pro-inflammatory gene expression by the immune system.

If you can’t pronounce It, Do you still want to eat It? 😀
 
This is called कलियुगी माया! 🙂 Toxic influence of toxins!
 
The problem is, most processed foods have a laundry list of ingredients similar to that of a can of paint. It’s not as simple as adding a little sugar to canned bisque or lemon juice to a scone mix.
 
Take a look at the list of ingredients from the strawberry flavoring of a milkshake served at a zip-through restaurant:
Amyl acetate, amyl butyrate, amyl valerate, anethol, anisyl formate, benzyl acetate, benzyl isobutyrate, butyric acid, cinnamyl isobutyrate, cinnamylvalerate, cognac essential oil, diacetyl, dipropyl ketone, ethyl butyrate, ethyl cinnamate, ethyl heptanoate, ethyl lactate, ethyl methylphenylglycidate, ethyl Nitrate, ethyl propionate, ethyl valerbate, heliotropin, hydroxphrenyl-2butanone(10% solution to alcohol), a-ionone, isobutyl anthranilate, isobutyl butrate, lemon essential oil, maltol, 4-methylacetophenone, methyl anthranilate, methyl benzoate, methyl cinnamate, methyl heptine carbone, methyl naphthyl ketone, methyl slicylate, mint essential oil, neroli essential oil, nerolin, neryl isobulyrate, orris butter, phenethyl alcohol, sore rum ether, g-undecalctone, vanillin, and solvent[1]

You entered into famous fast food chain,
you are in queue to order two burgers,
you order and pay for two burgers,
you and your child sit and eat it.

During this entire episode, do you ever get a single thought like ‘this is junk food and it is life-threatening food and why am I eating stupid things?’ ?

No? No thought? If you don’t care for self, whom do you care for? And you say you love your children, really? 🙂

I wonder, what forces us to take irrational decisions > any clue? Does hunger dominate with such cruelty?
