HEALTHY eaters using rice as an alternative to roast potatoes or chips could be in danger of eating arsenic if they don’t cook it properly, experts have warned.

The chemical has been linked to cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and developmental problems, reports The Sun.

Rice tends to absorb arsenic more than other cereal crops and also takes it up from pesticides in soil and industrial toxins.

The latest advice comes after health officials warned burning potatoes, chips and toast could be linked to cancer.

Here’s all you need to know:

Is there arsenic in rice?

Arsenic occurs naturally in the environment, but rice tends to absorb it more than other cereal crops and also takes it up from pesticides in soil and industrial toxins.

New limits on safe levels of arsenic in food were set by the EU in 2016, although boffins have different views on what level is safe to eat.

How can you cook rice safely?

Experiments suggest the amount of arsenic in rice can be slashed by using different cooking methods.

Scientists claim rice should be steeped in water overnight to flush out the poison, and then it can be rinsed and cooked the next day.

Professor Andy Meharg, of Queens University Belfast, tested three different ways of preparing the dish and analysed the rice afterwards.

The first method involved two parts water to one part rice, but the second method — five parts water to one part rice with the excess water being drained and the rice rinsed — cut the arsenic level almost in half.

A third method — where the rice was soaked all night — found the arsenic levels were cut by 80 per cent.

The experiments were conducted for the TV show Trust Me, I’m a Doctor, which aired in Australia on Monday on the ABC.

The Continuing Decline of McDonald’s Tags: Food

by James Corbett
TheInternationalForecaster.com
January 10, 2017

Long-time Corbett Reporteers might recall my 2015 video, “Celebrate! McDonald’s is Dying!” where I detailed the many, many woes the fast “food” giant was dealing with at the time, including:

Since then, McCancer’s has been undergoing a sweeping “restructuring” that has seen many layers of lipstick slapped on their factory-farmed pig. This restructuring includes not only cosmetic changes (“All-day breakfasts and new value menus for everyone!”) but behind-the-scenes efforts to trim $500 million from the company’s operating expenses, including buyouts and layoffs at company headquarters and the re-franchising of 4,000 corporate “restaurants.”

The global giant’s influential PR machine has used sleight-of-hand and other tricks to make this restructuring look like a smash success. They used their cheerleaders at the Wall Street Journal to hype “stronger-than-expected” profit and sales figures and their boosters at US News & World Report to hype some highly-selective earnings comparisons suggesting that this “turnaround” is, to use the WSJ’s phrase, “sustainable.”

But one doesn’t have to scratch too hard to reveal the rusty reality beneath this PR paint job.

McPinkslime’s might have “beat expectations” for sales and profits, but beating diminished expectations is hardly a sign of booming business. Just look at the nuts and bolts of the Q3 2016 earnings report: Year-on-year revenue is down 2.9% and net income is down 2.6%. And keep in mind, those numbers are in comparison to the already-terrible 2015 figures.

And that “re-franchising” operation? It cost $130 million in pre-tax charges.

But don’t worry, everyone, they “beat expectations!” Pay no attention to the hemorrhaging corporation behind the curtain!

And now the latest sign of McDonteat’s global retreat (via Corbett Report member “BuddhaForce”): “McDonald’s gives up control of its China business in $2 billion deal.”

The story is fascinating enough in its own right, what with McDonteats throwing in the corporate towel on the largest and fastest-growing consumer market in the world. But the devil is, as always, in the details. Who is purchasing the majority stake in the company’s mainland operations? None other than The Carlyle Group and CITIC Group.

The Carlyle Group’s name will likely ring a bell as one of the largest swamp pits “private equity firms” in the world, and one with its fingers in many a pie, including, of course, 9/11.

CITIC Group, meanwhile, will be familiar to The Corbett Report faithful as a key player in “China and the New World Order,” a Chinese state-owned investment company that helped serve as the Rockefeller-Kissinger nexus between the Deng Xiaoping-era “capitalist roaders” and their western finance oligarch recolonizers.

That these two cesspools are converging on the giant turd of American fast food is fitting enough. The McDonaldization of China is proceeding apace, and the usual crew are there to profit from it.

But as to what this story says about the continuing decline of the once-mighty golden arches, there are two main takeaways to the story, one depressing and one positive.

On the depressing front, there is a simple reason for the across-the-board slowdown in fast food sales in recent years (despite the predictable attempts to overcomplicate the problem in clickbait-y listicle format). For once, the Wall Street Journal gets it right: It’s the economy, stupid. What greater rebuke to the easily-disprovable economic “recovery” nonsense of the Obama years could be possible than pointing out the simple fact that people are too worried about their economic future to splurge on a $5 value meal?

But on a positive note, we can take McFatfood’s woes as a sign that, try as they might with their considerable propaganda resources, the corporate chieftains can’t put their egg McMuffin back together again. People are fed up with fast food. And although some, concerned with cost, are turning to eating at home as the cheaper option, others are more concerned with what’s in their food, where it’s sourced from, how it’s being prepared and who is being paid for it. Who wants instant, nutritionless, food-like substitute rolled up in plastic and slapped down on a tray by surly, overworked servers (or, increasingly, robots) anyway?

For those interested in how they can take part in the real food revolution that will render the McFastfood economy obsolete, may I humbly offer this podcast on guerrilla gardening? Bon appétit!

 

Full-fat cream and cheese found to actually reduce risk of heart disease, study finds Tags: Cancer Food

(NaturalNews) Health and nutrition information we receive from the mainstream media often turns out to be incorrect, to such an extent that even to regular readers of Natural News, it’s really hard to know what to believe. One of the most pervasive and flawed paradigms in the field of nutrition is that saturated fats are unhealthful to consume. Yet dietitians, nutritionists, and the medical establishment still insist on the veracity of this now widely disproved nutritional dogma. As reported by Healthy Hubb:

“A recent study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, has found that the fat in butter, cream, and cheese can benefit your health, despite what has been taught for decades about the artery clogging and premature death that it can cause. New evidence shows that a diet including full-fat instead of fat-free or low-fat dairy products actually protects you from cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, and cancer, which are the leading causes of death in the world.” Healthy Hubb continues,

“Researchers found that decreasing carbohydrate portions and increasing the intake of saturated fats, which are found mainly in full-fat dairy, meat, and tropical oils, resulted in weight loss in middle-aged overweight men, which resulted in better overall health. Participants in the study who were not categorized as overweight were found to benefit from more balanced blood sugar levels and lower blood pressure on the same eating plan, which disproves any previous theories about saturated fat being bad for your health. In fact, experts say that we need to monitor carbohydrate intake instead, which can cause blood sugar spikes and upset insulin levels, which risks the development of Type 2 diabetes.”

In Healthy Hubb’s article, a heart specialist from the University of Ireland, Professor Sherif Sultan, notes:

  • Current dietary guidelines are outmoded and desperately need to be revised.
  • Despite decades-old recommendations, high carbohydrate diets should be avoided.
  • Diets consisting largely of foods high in good quality fats are the healthiest.
  • this essential changeover will stem the epidemic of Type 2 diabetes and weight-related heart problems.

The heart of the matter
How did we come to believe that animal fats are bad for us? The indoctrination of fraudulent science began decades
ago, and were perpetrated by physiologist Ancel Keys in the 1950’s. He cherry-picked data to skew the results of his study, and TIME magazine ran a cover story to perpetuate the disinformation. Many studies since have countered the false data and we can only ask, how many have suffered and died by following this bad advice?

The wrong fats were demonized
We now know that the high Omega-6 vegetable oils cause inflammation and illness, margarine and vegetable shortening are comprised of deadly trans fats, and the fats we were told were bad for us, the saturated fats, are actually healthy. Many of us have been dutifully avoiding the foods we love, bacon, sausages, steak, cream, butter, and whole milk, and have been purchasing the supposed healthy alternatives that the packaged food manufacturers have been peddling — the sugar-laden, low-fat foods from a box. Could anything be more perverse than this travesty?
