WHY are we still reaching for plastic water bottles knowing how bad they are for the environment and for our health?? And with the many alternatives available these days there's really no excuse. 🌊
Other plastic debris along with billions of water bottles are clogging our oceans and killing marine life. •••
Synthetic chemicals like bisphenol A and phthalates that are in plastic are polluting not just the environment, but our bodies. 🌊
20 years ago I heard an oncologist speaking on the radio about the dangers of plastic water bottles. He said that males who drink the water from just 2 of these bottles a day have consumed the equivalent of one birth control pill,,, the estrogenic effect of those plastic chemicals is that powerful. Here we are so many years later and that message has been buried!!
A very disturbing consequence of the chemical revolution of the past 100 years is the disruption of testosterone that results in damaging the sexual development of male children. This chemical threat to boys may be a threat to survival of our species. 😮
Think twice before you reach for liquids that come in plastic bottles. All liquids ,, salad dressings, juices, soda, etc.
It is possible to reduce plastic in your everyday life. If not now, then when???
Dzisiaj u mnie duuużo nauki się zapowiada, a wiec mózg musi mieć glukozę 😄😄 pomarańcza, brzoskwinka, truskawy 🍓🍓🍓i chlebek z kaszy(!🙈!) z awokado 🥑❤️🥑❤️🥑❤️ i moja ukochana pokrzywa- królowa królów 😄😄😄taki chlebek może być świetnym pomysłem dla osob, które za kaszami nie przepadają a chciały by je włączyć do menu z uwagi na cenne składniki 😄 i nie, nie smakuje jak kasza, ale jak prawdziwy chleb 😄 yuuum! A wy co jecie dobrego? Przypominam o nowym FOOD DIARY, które juz od wczoraj śmiga na kanale i na blogu ❤️❤️ --> link w BIO 👌
Ps Dzisiaj o 17, rownież film oczywiście 😄
Lots of study today, so my brain needs some glucose 😂😄😄 orange, peach, strawberries and homemade bread made with using... groats ❤️❤️ with some delicious avocado 🥑🥑 <--- love them lots ❤️
You can also see new FOOD DIARY on my YouTube channel (but its polish version ofc) link in BIO 😊
Butternut Squash: 🌿🍃 Why does it stand ahead of the other bright orange vegetables?
High in beta-carotene like other bright orange vegetables but is one of the highest food sources of the rarer antioxidants beta-cryptoxanthin and alpha-carotene. •••
Beta- cryptoxanthin : regular consumption of this antioxidant can reduce the risk of developing arthritis by 50% and lung cancer by more than 30%! 🍃
Alpha-carotene has been shown to have significantly better anti cancer activity than beta-carotene. ••• Butternut squash contains 2 other powerful antioxidants, zeaxanthin and lutein, which are concentrated in the macular region of the eyes where it provides protection from UV rays and blue light radiation. The more this squash is consumed the lower the risk of cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. 🌿
Also Contains: ••
Vitamins C, E, K, B Vitamins - [thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, and pyridine]
Magnesium, manganese, iron, copper, potassium, phosphorus, and zinc.
Not hard to see why this squash should be eaten regularly!! ✅
Note: Consume with healthy fats like avocados, nuts, or seeds to ensure optimum absorption of the fat soluble vitamins E, and K. •••
Which image does NOT belong in this group and why not??🌿🍃
The one product that has been injected with synthetic chemicals to keep it looking 'just slaughtered, red-colour fresh' would be the easy, right answer.
But what else makes meat such an unhealthy choice??🌿🍃
Several Factors: Part 1
Let's explore the Cancer Connection today. •
1) IGF1 - A growth hormone called insulin-like growth factor 1 circulates in our bodies at all times to create new cells and destroy cells that are damaged, precancerous, cancerous, or just worn out. This is a crucial hormone that regulates cell growth, synthesizes new DNA, and keeps the number of cells we have in balance. Levels are higher during periods of growth then diminish once we become adults. ••
Consumption of animal protein stimulates IGF-1 production - whether it's meat protein, egg-white protein, or milk protein. Milk cows are routinely given growth hormones ( even hormone-free ORGANIC milk contains high IGF-1 amounts since it was intended by nature to feed a baby calf), as well milk's high protein content also increases IGF-1 levels in humans. 🌿•••
The more animal protein eaten the more IGF1 is produced and that can accelerate cancer growth and inhibit the death of cancer cells.
2) IGF-1 "binding protein" is a protein released by the liver to mop up any excess IGF-1 that's in the bloodstream and take it out of circulation. Animal protein consumption can lower levels of this important protein allowing even more IGF-1 to circulate thereby increasing cancer risk. 🌿••
Eating a plant-based diet can increase the binding protein by 50%!!
Only those who limit their intake of all animal protein can see a significant drop in levels of cancer-promoting IGF1 and increase levels of protective binding proteins.
Vegetarians consuming eggs and milk don't achieve the same drop in IGF1 as vegans.
Side Note: Vegan men have higher testosterone levels than vegetarians or meat eaters. ✅
