For last 80-90 years, we treated animals and plants equal, as our slaves. Remember one thing, stressed plants/animals means our food has not only chemical toxins used to raised them but biological markers indicating potential environmental stress which will also make our lives stressed. No wonder why so many youngsters lose their temper so soon, murders, rape, divorce, general apathy, lack of civic sense, rapid aging and suicides everywhere.

In summary: Chemical fertilizers + pesticides + diesel pollution ==> Stressed soil, air, water => Stressed plants => Stress markers with fruits, vegetables, grains => Sick body and sick mind

Do you get why we have so many social issues despite so much investment in religious and spiritual temples/Gurus/ashrams! 😀 😀

Issue is our food. Treating plants and animals with respect. Before harvest, we used to worship plants and taking permission from them to perform harvest. How wonderfully sensitive relation we used to have with our food.

Worse Slaves @animal farms

And now?

Packaged, processed, stressed and dead food. Making us zombies. 🙁We all are zombies of different degrees. Dead-like and robotic. 🙁

Solution for good health lies in destruction of factory farming and related food chain.

Stressed out plants send animal-like signals

University of Adelaide research has shown for the first time that, despite not having a nervous system, plants use signals normally associated with animals when they encounter stress.

“But it was not known whether GABA was a signal in plants. We’ve discovered that plants bind GABA in a similar way to animals, resulting in that ultimately regulate plant growth when a plant is exposed to a stressful environment.”

By identifying how plants respond to GABA the researchers are optimistic that they have opened up many new possibilities for modifying how plants respond to stress.

“The major stresses agricultural crops face like pathogens and poor environmental conditions account for most yield losses around the planet – and consequently food shortages,” says co-lead author Professor Stephen Tyerman.

Real Milk vs Factory milk vs Vegan Alternatives

1
Milk vs Milk : Raw Desi A2 wins
Milk vs Milk : Raw Desi A2 wins

Simpletons do more harm to society than ignorant. I often receive shallow arguements from those who are consuming factory made milk or vegan sentimental alternatives.

“Milk is milk! Nutrition cocktail! “

Their arguments are like:

1) We can ferment coconut milk or Almond too then why do we need this milk? For all probiotic needs, we can rely on it.
2) Milk is milk and butter milk is butter milk. Doe snot make any difference whether it is A2 milk or A1 milk or Dairy milk or Raw milk.
3) Fermentation is fermentation. Whether it is done at home or in factory.

This is utter simpleton nonsense. Milk is not just nutrients. Milk varies with species. Milk varies with season. Milk varies based on how good or bad you treat animals. More than nutrients, milk is full of digested Prana (Raw Prana from sunlight digested at least once in organism. Like how plants and trees convert raw prana into digested Prana. Prana is not nutrient! For your imagination, imagine a layer of energy carried by any food item. Processed foods have least! Raw or cooked food have optimum)

They are certainly guided by sentiments and not rational common sense.

Remember few facts:
1) For Probiotic (Healthy bacteria) to survive stomach acids, they need enough food during this digestive track travel. So their medium must be rich in their taste of nutrients.
2) Based on the source, bacteria establish so bacteria in Raw milk will be different than the ones in Almond milk. Even their colony count varies based on the richness of the medium.
3) Bacterial society’s variety depends upon the local environment. Bacteria competent with our body are in good numbers at our home.
4) Method of fermentation matters. Manual churning or machine-churning or fat-separation etc. Best is manual churning. Churning or Manthan has great significance in probiotic preparation. It demands your involvement. Machines won’t help much.

This research paper reads:
“Our findings indicate that the manner in which a probiotic is delivered—whether in food or supplement form—could influence how effective that probiotic is in delivering the desired health benefits,”

The mice that ingested the probiotic in milk had reduced symptoms compared to those that were fed milk without the probiotic, and the ones that received the probiotic within a nonfood supplement.

Probiotic food in your local culture is proven and certified by infinite generations. I prefer to trust them over researches and sentiments. So if milk is part of your traditional medium to transport bacteria to Gut, use it. If there is anything else, use it. Do not homogenize good habits by sentiments.

While this research suggest use of dairy for probiotic effectiveness, I go one step further and suggest home-based manually churned fermentation of ethically procured raw A2 desi cow milk.

Remember, medium is the message for the GUT. Which medium you use to transport probiotic is important.

Think about it. Take care.

Dairy Products Boost Effectiveness of Probiotics

Why home-based fermented food? Link to Acidity

In last post, I talked about importance of bacteria in controlling our mood/mental state.

This[1] interesting article supports the hypothesis I presented about eating ONLY home-made dahi/butter milk/yogurt (to avoid alien bacteria of alien environment i.e. shop/factory where dahi is prepared in mass). It also suggests another hypothesis of having Panchmrit prepared from all unrefined, unprocessed raw milk, jaggery, sugar and honey.

More processed food you eat, more alien food you eat (Food prepared in alien environment i.e. restaurants), frequent travelling you do (so eating outside food frequently) and more acidity you suffer from.

The researchers found that scavengers, or species that eat food at high risk of microbial contamination, have more acidic stomachs. This acidity allows the stomach to act as a filter, effectively controlling which microbes can pass through the stomach to the gut.

Passing stomach acidity is very essential for probiotic food. Most probiotic food available in market fail here. It only helps in increasing acidity of the stomach.

An analysis of data on stomach acidity and diet in birds and mammals suggests that high levels of stomach acidity developed not to help animals break down food, but to defend animals against food poisoning. The work raises interesting questions about the evolution of stomach acidity in humans, and how modern life may be affecting both our stomach acidity and the microbial communities that live in our guts.

Antacids is not a solution. It is actually counter-health solution. Right solution is to avoid eating at unknown food-joints, at unknown places. Avoid highly processed food full of chemicals.

Pathology-Low-Acid-Level-Diseases
Pathology-Low-Acid-Level-Diseases

1) If you start cooking for self, you will never need acidity regulators!acidity regulators are against the innate nature of stomach! Never take them! They worsen the stomach working.
2) Take good care of selecting and preparing probiotic food.
3) Avoid outside food and travelling as much as possible
4) Avoid non-veg diet if you are living in terrain where plant based diet is available.

Take care. Never seek easy short-sighted solutions.

The Evolutionary Link Between Diet and Stomach Acidity

Diet and Stomach Acidity
Diet and Stomach Acidity

Gastric acidity is likely a key factor shaping the diversity and composition of microbial communities found in the vertebrate gut. We conducted a systematic review to test the hypothesis that a key role of the vertebrate stomach is to maintain the gut microbial community by filtering out novel microbial taxa before they pass into the intestines. We propose that species feeding either on carrion or on organisms that are close phylogenetic relatives should require the most restrictive filter (measured as high stomach acidity) as protection from foreign microbes. Conversely, species feeding on a lower trophic level or on food that is distantly related to them (e.g. herbivores) should require the least restrictive filter, as the risk of pathogen exposure is lower. Comparisons of stomach acidity across trophic groups in mammal and bird taxa show that scavengers and carnivores have significantly higher stomach acidities compared to herbivores or carnivores feeding on phylogenetically distant prey such as insects or fish. In addition, we find when stomach acidity varies within species either naturally (with age) or in treatments such as bariatric surgery, the effects on gut bacterial pathogens and communities are in line with our hypothesis that the stomach acts as an ecological filter. Together these results highlight the importance of including measurements of gastric pH when investigating gut microbial dynamics within and across species

Microbes, Mood Changer, Dahi

Panchamrut Img src: http://goo.gl/a9VKlP
Panchamrut
Img src: http://goo.gl/a9VKlP

No ritual of this land ends without Prasad. No Prasad without Panchamrita (पञ्चामृत). It is a mixture of five foods used in Hindu worship and puja, usually honey, sugar, milk, yogurt, and ghee. I remember, how my mother used to stop me every time I start from home for exam. She would feed a spoon full of misti dahi (dahi and/or jaggery/sugar) as a शुकन token and my success in exams. In marriage ritual, पञ्चामृत is used profusely as it is major emotional event for both families. Mighty God Krishna is never seen without probiotic food.

Amazing science behind it! As I shared in last post about connection of CAT and अपशुकन in last post, here is the connection of पञ्चामृत and शुकन (Well-being or well-execution of future immediate actions). All thanks to tiny little microbes whom we are ready to kill everyday using anti-microbes weapons. 🙂

Lactobacilli bacteria in dahi reduces anxiety, chronic fatigue and depression. That is the magic of just one type of bacteria. Generally when dahi is fermented at home, it can have all beneficial bacteria. In पञ्चामृत, ghee and honey are potent probiotic food, increasing potency of altering our mood.

There is another bacteria in probiotic food: Bifidobacterium infantis. Probiotic treatment with B. infantis in a rat maternal separation model of depression resulted in a normal immune response, normal behavior, and normal levels of stress hormone in the brainstem compared to untreated rats. (As I’ve stated many times here, gut function affects all body parts, including the brain.)
So your mother or grandmother was more scientific than you and me who were laughing on them for blind rituals.

Things to take care for availing full benefits of probiotic Dahi

1) Fermentation must happen at home. Factory made Dahi will have bacteria from factory environment (other than Lactobacilli). Our home is full of bacteria suited for our body. So prepare dahi at home.

2) For probiotics to survive beyond acidic stomach pathway and establish themselves in GUT, milk, honey, jiggery used should be full of nutrition which bacteria can use for survival in harsh stomach conditions. Find Raw Desi Gay milk for it. Find chemical-free unprocessed honey and jiggery. Find unrefined non-white sugar.

3) Consume fresh Dahi. Do not refrigerate.

4) Prepare Panchamrit. Not exclusive dahi. Take in small quantity. For large quantity, prepare butter milk.

5) Avoid during monsoon due to unstable environment crowded so many different pathogens.

व्याख्या –

वेद की उपदेश करने की शैली निराली है | वेद कहीं आदेश करता है, कहीं निषेध करता है, कहीं प्रार्थना द्वारा कर्त्तव्याकर्त्तव्य का बोध कराता है, कहीं वास्तविक स्थिति आगे रख कर समझाता है |

इस मन्त्र में जो बात कही है, वह पहले भी ठीक थी, आज भी सत्य है और कल को भी यथार्थ होगी |वेद के उपदेश सामयिक नहीं, वरन् सदातन = सदा रहने वाले, त्रिकालाबाधित हैं | अथर्ववेद 5|28|3 में कहा है –

 

त्रयः पोषास्त्रिवृति श्रयन्तामनक्तु पूषा पयसा घृतेन |

अन्नस्य भूमा पुरुषस्य भूमा भूमा पशूनां त इह श्रयन्ताम ||

इस त्रिगुणात्मक जगत् में तीन पुष्टियाँ बनी र‌र्हें – (1) अन्न की बहुतायत (2) पुरुषों की बहुलता तथा (3) पशुओं की बहुतायत | ये इस संसार में बनी रहें, पशुपति दूध-घी से भरपूर रहें | दूध-घी कहाँ से आये ? पशुओं से | पशुओं मे‍ गौ का घी-दूध सबकी अपेक्षा उत्कृष्ट माना गया है | अतएव वेद में गौ की महिमा बहुत है | यथा – गावो भगो गाव इन्द्रो मे | (अथर्ववेद 4|21|5) = गौएँ ही भाग्य और गौएँ ही मेरा ऐश्वर्य हैं |

 

यूयं गावो मेदयथा कृशं चिदश्रीरं चित्कृणुथा सुप्रतीकम|

भद्रं ग्रृहं कृणुथ भद्रवाचो बृहद्वो वय उच्यते सभासु ||

अथर्ववेद 4|21|6

गोएँ दुबले को भी मोटा कर देती हैं और शोभाहीन को भी सुन्दर बना देती हैं | मधुर बोली वाली गौएँ घर को कल्याणमय बना देती हैं | सभाओं में गौओं की बहुत कीर्ति कही जाती है |

 

गौओं को पालने की रीति का भी थोड़ा संकेत है –

प्रजावती सूयवसे रुशन्तीः शुद्धा अपः सुप्रपाणे पिबन्तीः |

अथर्ववेद 4|21|7

सन्तान सहित गौएँ उत्तम चारे के कारण पुष्ट हों, उत्तम जलपान के स्थान में शुद्ध जल का पान करें |

आज गोभक्त आर्य इस उपदेश को भूल सा गया है | अब न अच्छा चारा देते हैं और न गौओं को शुद्ध जल पिलाने की व्यवस्था की जाती है | यह तभी हो सकता है जब स्व आ दमे सुदुधा यस्य धेनुः – अपने घर में ही उत्तम दूध देने वाली गौ हो |

वेद के कथनानुसार जिसके दूध के पीने से दुर्बल भी हृष्ट पुष्ट हो जाते हैं और श्रीहीन सुश्रीक = सुन्दर शोभामान् हो जाते हैं, उससे पूरा लाभ उठाने के लिए उसे घर में पालना अच्छा होता है | इसका दूध पीने से गोपति जल में विद्युत् के समान चमकता है ||

I feel little ashamed for our ignorance, when we Indians call ‘Jersey’ ,breed of wild European animal Aurochs as ‘गाय’, worship it and drink her milk as if we are drinking गाय दूध. And more dangerous ignorance is to be ashamed when we don’t know that Aurochs breed’s(As if Jersey) milk has CASOMORPHINE, whose accumulation in body leads to a peptide poisoning. This is particularly often reported in patients with ADHD, autism and schizophrenia.

Why Food chain correction is most critical problem?

Apart from external environmental factors affecting mind space, it is our polluted food and water sources, that play major role in weakening our psyche and slip ourselves in the mode societal corruption.

When people talk about neurological disorders, they consider only those disorders which exhibit visible symptoms (Autism, Phobias etc). For me, lack of integrity or moral perversion is also a neurological disorder, albeit silent one. It is getting diagnosed, only during harvesting time of past deeds of individual. And in most cases, it is never diagnosed during life time.

Corruption in society is resultant of polluted food origins. While working on correcting political system, it is equally important to see that majority of us, get nutritional food, both physical and mental.

Mental food by disinfecting Education system, physical food by disinfecting agriculture.

If you think you are sane citizen, contribute, in your capacity possible, for politics, education and agriculture.

With corrupted and weak psyche and body of majority in us, it is difficult to penetrate sane reformative ideas in our minds.

You go and explain, ideal democracy but if the other person is devoid of pure food and water, it is difficult for him being receptive and understand sane ideas necessary to change the Nation’s destiny from current shoddy state. Even if he/she understands, he/she won’t do much in action due to weak body and mind. For survival, compromises happen and saga of personal involvement in corruption continues.

Food -> Education -> Political awareness -> Critical Mass for change -> Revolution

Any upheaval, out of reaction, would remain temporary since roots are corrupt and in hibernation. With favorable environment to flourish, weakness will sprout again and reforms will topple again towards nadir.

If roots are replaces by food and education, it is difficult for any external force to break strong National fabric.

Political awareness minus Food and Education -> Revolution minus prolonged stability.

Strive for prolonged happiness.

 

Why respect and follow local food traditions?

https://www.leonardooliveoil.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/Indian-cooking-with-Olive-oil.jpg

Ghee is a tradition here. Olive oil is a tradition in Europe. Soybean in china. All suitable for respective local environment. If you live in China, you should eat Soybean. But in India? Why? Food Tradition does not come up overnight from scientist’s lab like your Crosin tablet that works everywhere with same side effects 😀.

Traditions emerge from social labs, our homes, by live experiments over several generations, under the guidance of Rishi personalities (The one with sharp and blessed observation powers). Traditions exists because they have proved benefits to many. Fake traditions do not stand against the time. What is suitable here, may not work well in Canada. What is best in Canada, may not work here (For example Canola oil).

Trust and follow your local food habits passed to you by parents, and get benefited. Doubt and live in self-denial? Loss of all benefits. Pay the price.

Side note: One of the hidden benefits of respecting food traditions is reduced transport due to demand of exotic food. Think about it. You can make huge difference!

Soya vs Coconut : Market Driven vs Nature Driven

A diet high in soybean oil causes more obesity and diabetes than a diet high in fructose, a sugar commonly found in soda and processed foods, UC Riverside researchers found. Illustration credit: Denise Wolf

There was intense marketing of Soybean during last 35 years. From doctors to dietitians to Govt of India. Everyone praised it and promoted it. We ate it bindas! We grow it mindlessly! Even in regions where Soya was never sown! 🙂

At the cost of what?

Our traditional oils. Groundnut, sesame (til), coconut. Blaming them unhealthy.

Read this research. In one diet the researchers used coconut oil, which consists primarily of saturated fat. In the second diet about half of the coconut oil was replaced with soybean oil, which contains primarily polyunsaturated fats and is a main ingredient in vegetable oil. That diet corresponded with roughly the amount of soybean oil Americans currently consume.Compared to mice on the high coconut oil diet, mice on the high soybean oil diet showed increased weight gain, larger fat deposits, a fatty liver with signs of injury, diabetes and insulin resistance, all of which are part of the Metabolic Syndrome.

So called healthy Soya is even more risky than fructose we eat in processed food.

This Soya oil is now part of most if not all fast food, including chocolates and biscuits.

Many Soya defenders argue that Chinese are eating Soya for 1000s of years but they are not fat. 🙂 Well, as I discussed many times, all food sources are valid in their local environments. Chinese have proper environment to help digest Soya. We don’t have! And we don’t even cook soya the way Chinese or Japanese or anyone in cold region cooks.

And what we eat as Soybean is way different than what Chinese and Japanese used to eat. Our Soybean is 95% genetically modified!

Local traditions is solution. Eat what your grandmother cooks or eat. Eat what people of your region generally eat. Do not get trapped under the illusion of fancy ads and adopt exotic food.

Same is the case of Sunflower oil. It is for Europeans. Not for us.

Replace your oil intake with more local options. Unrefined oils.

===============

The study also includes extensive analysis of changes in gene expression and metabolite levels in the livers of mice fed these diets. The most striking results were those showing that soybean oil significantly affects the expression of many genes that metabolize drugs and other foreign compounds that enter the body, suggesting that a soybean oil-enriched diet could affect one’s response to drugs and environmental toxicants, if humans show the same response as mice.

http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0132672

The obesity epidemic in the U.S. has led to extensive research into potential contributing dietary factors, especially fat and fructose. Recently, increased consumption of soybean oil, which is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), has been proposed to play a causal role in the epidemic. Here, we designed a series of four isocaloric diets (HFD, SO-HFD, F-HFD, F-SO-HFD) to investigate the effects of saturated versus unsaturated fat, as well as fructose, on obesity and diabetes. C57/BL6 male mice fed a diet moderately high in fat from coconut oil and soybean oil (SO-HFD, 40% kcal total fat) showed statistically significant increases in weight gain, adiposity, diabetes, glucose intolerance and insulin resistance compared to mice on a diet consisting primarily of coconut oil (HFD). They also had fatty livers with hepatocyte ballooning and very large lipid droplets as well as shorter colonic crypt length. While the high fructose diet (F-HFD) did not cause as much obesity or diabetes as SO-HFD, it did cause rectal prolapse and a very fatty liver, but no balloon injury. The coconut oil diet (with or without fructose) increased spleen weight while fructose in the presence of soybean oil increased kidney weight. Metabolomics analysis of the liver showed an increased accumulation of PUFAs and their metabolites as well as γ-tocopherol, but a decrease in cholesterol in SO-HFD. Liver transcriptomics analysis revealed a global dysregulation of cytochrome P450 (Cyp) genes in SO-HFD versus HFD livers, most notably in the Cyp3a and Cyp2c families. Other genes involved in obesity (e.g., Cidec, Cd36), diabetes (Igfbp1), inflammation (Cd63), mitochondrial function (Pdk4) and cancer (H19) were also upregulated by the soybean oil diet. Taken together, our results indicate that in mice a diet high in soybean oil is more detrimental to metabolic health than a diet high in fructose or coconut oil.

Mother Cow and Vitamin D3

I don’t know where to start this post. So many dots to connect!!

Let me start with latest news :

65-70% Indians are Vitamin D deficient. Here’s why you should worry

Despite plentiful sun, Vitamin D (aka sunshine vitamin) deficiency is reaching epidemic proportions in India, warns Dr Michael Holick, Endocrinologist and global authority on Vitamin D therapy.

Recent studies have revealed that 65-70 per cent Indians are Vitamin D deficient and another 15 per cent are insufficient.

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life-style/health-fitness/health-news/65-70-Indians-are-Vitamin-D-deficient-Heres-why-you-should-worry/articleshow/53277557.cms

Shocking right? 🙂 We deserve it for our sheer incompetence to respect mother nature and blind race for greed!

And can you imagine the impact? Whole plethora of mental disorders! Zombies everywhere!! Psychopaths and rapists! I am not trying to fear-monger! This will be harsh reality of near future! (And so be prepared! More than books, educate your kids for strength building! ) In fact, it is happening all around! Have you not seen increasing number of such psychopath(s) hijacking society?

Who will help?

Of course, गौ माता! (Desi cows with hump. Scientific name: Bos Indicus) [2]

गौ माता has Surya-Ketu Nadi in hump. It is this special feature that makes her different from other breeds. It is this नाड़ी that transforms प्राणशक्ति from प्राण दाता सूर्य भगवान् ! Vitamin D3, the gross and raw form of biological solar power is bonus!

Milk of Gau mata is full of DHA!

As per this research [0], DHA with D3 controls Brain Serotonin, Affecting Behavior and Psychiatric Disorders!

Here [1] , I already shared that serotonin in blood makes mother’s milk more nutritious!

Can you connect the dots?

Desi Gau ghee is full of DHA Docosahexaenoic acid. No other source can compete with the ghee produced by churning method from desi Gau mata’s ethically procured A2 milk. One more condition is that ghee has to be prepared during Sunrise (Vitamin D3). All this is not possible in dairy from where we get your ghee :).

We see increasing number of kids in hyper active mode. ADHD and ASD. Many clinical disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and depression share as a unifying attribute low brain serotonin.

Serotonin production and function is linked to vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids, suggesting one way these important micronutrients help the brain function and affect the way we behave.

If anyone in your circle is suffering from insomnia (can’t sleep), migraine, headache, you can try this experiment of Desi Gau ghee nasal drops. Make ghee lukeworm and apply 1-2 drops in both nasal passages before sleeping. Do it for 90 days.

PS: Before you try ghee from any gau shala, make sure that calf is given enough milk and milk is taken once calf is satiated for that session. There are no hormone used to increase production of milk. Place should be neat and clean. Cows must graze in open land for 3-4 hrs daily. Cows must get clean drinking water.

It is not advisable for:
1) Pregnant lady or during menses cycle
2) After bath, exercise, meal and intercourse.
I personally prefer before sleeping.

In summary:

  • It Is bos indicus who will bless this land again with abundance of digested Prana (her prasad in form of dung, urine and milk). Not some reductionist D#, K, Ca etc but wholesome Prana! Prana that replenish the sick and timid!
  • Free pasture land for grazing is must for quality prasad! More she graze under sun-light, better would be her prasad (including D3!)
  • It is important and more cost-effective to imbibe digested Prana (Raw Prana passing through digestive track of mother cow. Churned Prana). When ghee is prepared, potency of digested prana increases manifold! Far far better than Vitamin D3 injections which are difficult to digest for body!
  • Freely grazing cows => Serotonin + Sun rays + DHA from grass => Quality milk, dung and urine!

Vitamin D and the omega-3 fatty acids control serotonin synthesis and action, part 2: relevance for ADHD, bipolar, schizophrenia, and impulsive behavior

Serotonin regulates a wide variety of brain functions and behaviors. Here, we synthesize previous findings that serotonin regulates executive function, sensory gating, and social behavior and that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and impulsive behavior all share in common defects in these functions. It has remained unclear why supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D improve cognitive function and behavior in these brain disorders. Here, we propose mechanisms by which serotonin synthesis, release, and function in the brain are modulated by vitamin D and the 2 marine omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Brain serotonin is synthesized from tryptophan by tryptophan hydroxylase 2, which is transcriptionally activated by vitamin D hormone. Inadequate levels of vitamin D (∼70% of the population) and omega-3 fatty acids are common, suggesting that brain serotonin synthesis is not optimal. We propose mechanisms by which EPA increases serotonin release from presynaptic neurons by reducing E2 series prostaglandins and DHA influences serotonin receptor action by increasing cell membrane fluidity in postsynaptic neurons. We propose a model whereby insufficient levels of vitamin D, EPA, or DHA, in combination with genetic factors and at key periods during development, would lead to dysfunctional serotonin activation and function and may be one underlying mechanism that contributes to neuropsychiatric disorders and depression. This model suggests that optimizing vitamin D and marine omega-3 fatty acid intake may help prevent and modulate the severity of brain dysfunction.—Patrick, R. P., Ames, B. N. Vitamin D and the omega-3 fatty acids control serotonin synthesis and action, part 2: relevance for ADHD, bipolar, schizophrenia, and impulsive behavior.

Consumption of non–cow’s milk beverages and serum vitamin D levels in early childhood

“Among children who drank both types of milk, each additional cup of non–cow’s milk beverage consumed was associated with a 5% decrease in 25-hydroxyvitamin D level,” the researchers write. The estimated was adjusted for clinically relevant variables, the authors note.

Interpretation: Consumption of non–cow’s milk beverages was associated with decreased serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels in early childhood. This association was modified by cow’s milk consumption, which suggests a trade-off between consumption of cow’s milk fortified with higher levels of vitamin D and non–cow’s milk with lower vitamin D content.

Diet Dictators

When you draw inspiration to alter your age-old food habits from half-baked, politically motivated/funded research paper published in local newspaper or magazine, you would most likely start obeying politically correct nutrition.

When so called experts (Call them DD i.e. Diet Dictators) make no distinction between whole grains and refined, between foods grown organically and those grown with pesticides and commercial fertilizers, between unprocessed dairy products from pasture-fed cows and pasteurized dairy products from confined animals raised on processed feed, between fresh and rancid fats, between traditional fresh fruits and vegetables and those that have been irradiated or genetically altered, in short, between the traditional foods that nourished our ancestors and newfangled products now dominating the modern marketplace, consider food marketed by them as politically correct nutrition.

This is Politically Correct Nutrition. It singles out foods grown by independent producers, but spares the powerful and highly profitable grain cartels, vegetable oil producers and the food processing industry; it sacrifices old-fashioned butter on the altar of the latest nutritional fad but spares pasteurized milk products and processed cheese; it gives lip service to the overwhelming evidence implicating sugar as a major cause of our degenerative diseases but spares the soft drink industry; and it raises not a murmur against refined flour, hydrogenated vegetable oils and foods adulterated with harmful preservatives, flavorings and coloring agents.

The DDs are strangely silent about the ever increasing trend toward food processing and the devitalization of India’s rich agricultural bounty. Most “nutritional” cookbooks follow the DDs’ politically correct guidelines, including all those approved by food safety regulators.

For example, take an example of ‘FAT’. Politically Correct Nutrition is based on the assumption that we should reduce our intake of fats, particularly saturated fats from animal sources (Dairy items for vegetarians). Fats from animal sources also contain cholesterol, presented as the twin villain of the civilized diet.

On the contrary, Fats from animal and vegetable sources provide a concentrated source of energy in the diet; they also provide the building blocks for cell membranes and a variety of hormones and hormone-like substances. Fats as part of a meal slow down nutrient absorption so that we can golonger without feeling hungry. In addition, they act as carriers for important fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Dietary fats are needed for the conversion of carotene to vitamin A, for mineral absorption and for a host of other processes.

Most people would be surprised to learn that there is, in fact, very little evidence to support the contention that a diet low in cholesterol and saturated fat actually reduces death from heart disease or in any way increases one’s life span.

‘Lowfat’ thus is politically correct nutrition, causing severe problem to health and yet many of us welcome it wholeheartedly, presuming it as heart-friend!

Solution is : Put efforts behind finding local food.
