Over the last few weeks I’ve been thinking of the best way to get you digestible, informative beneficial information.
So here is my shot at that.
✅Research Article Overview
Sitting in front of a computer all day sucks. Even if you enjoy your work, your spine isn’t very happy about it. Often times sitting at a computer all day can lead to poor posture, neck and shoulder pain and headaches. While there are many different ways to try and decrease the pain, movement and strengthening the muscles can be very beneficial.
Check out the 2-minute video below to learn what you can do to help decrease your pain throughout the workday.
Have you ever heard someone say food coloring and food additives are bad for you?
It turns out they’re right. A recent article published by the American Academy of Pediatrics reviewed the detrimental affects of food additives, food coloring and more a short synopsis is below.
The United States allows the use of more than 10,000 additives to preserve, package, or modify the taste, appearance, texture, or nutrients in foods. Many were grandfathered in for approval during the 1950s, and roughly 1,000 additives are used under a “Generally Recognized as Safe” designation process that doesn’t require U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.
-Some food additives can interfere with a child’s hormones, growth, and development
The additives of most concern, based on rising research evidence cited in the report, include:
Bisphenols, such as BPA, used to harden plastic containers and line metal cans, can act like estrogen in the body and potentially change the timing of puberty, decrease fertility, increase body fat, and affect the nervous and immune systems. BPA is now banned in baby bottles and sippy cups.
Artificial food colors, common in children’s food products, may be associated with worsened attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Studies cited in the report found a significant number of children who cut synthetic food colorings from their diets showed decreased ADHD symptoms.
Nitrates/nitrites are used to preserve food and enhance color, especially in cured and processed meats. These chemicals can interfere with thyroid hormone production and the blood's ability to deliver oxygen in the body. Nitrates and nitrites also have been linked with gastrointestinal and nervous system cancers.
What they suggest ✅
Since heat can cause plastics to leak BPA and phthalates into food, avoid microwaving food or beverages (including infant formula and pumped human milk) in plastic when possible. Also try to avoid putting plastics in the dishwasher.
Use alternatives to plastic, such as glass or stainless steel, when possible.
Avoid plastics with recycling codes 3 (phthalates), 6 (styrene), and 7 (bisphenols) unless they are labeled as “biobased” or “greenware.”
Take out the deli meat and processed meats from your diet, especially during pregnancy.
