From First Lady, Michelle Obama to Dr. Oz, the American public has been hammered for years on that buying organic foods is the way to go. But a new study shows that it might not be the case, research done at Stanford University found that organic foods aren’t any healthier than the more conventional produce. Further study has shown that organic foods carry fewer pesticides, the levels detected in the conventionally grown produce were well within federally established safety guidelines, the study says.
There isn’t really much of a difference between organic and conventional foods if you an adult and making a decision based solely on your health said in a university statement by Senior author Dr. Dena Bravata of Stanford’s Center for Health Policy.
There is always a study that either says something is good for you like eating eggs is good for you then turn around to purpose that eating an egg is on the same par as smoking; so don’t worry if you don’t agree with this findings. There have been other contradictory healths studies that make us question what we eat.
When high-fat and high-calorie foods are consumed regularly, our brain’s ability to regulate hunger cues, and calorie intake gets reduced. A new study has shown evidence of how continuously eating a fatty diet seems to disrupt the neurological pathway between the brain and the gut.
The cells in charge of signaling the brain when we’ve had enough food are called astrocytes. According to new research published in The Journal of Physiology, calorie intake is regulated in the short term by astrocytes (large star-shaped cells in the brain that regulate many different functions of neurons in the brain). Astrocytes also control the signaling pathway between the brain and the gut, a path that can get interrupted by high calorie diets.
