I wanted to learn more about the more healthy foods. Those that can help us to avoid this "cup":Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done'
Here are two interesting information I found researching this theme:
Postmenopausal women who aren't taking hormone therapy and any adults older than 65 years should take even more—1,500 milligrams daily. But remember that the body absorbs calcium best in smaller doses (of 500 milligrams or less). So if you are taking 1,000 milligrams per day, it's best to split the dose and take it twice daily
Data from the Women's Health Initiative, a long-term study including more than 36,000 women, showed that postmenopausal women who were not consuming adequate calcium at the start of the study but started taking 1,000 milligrams of calcium and 400 International Units of vitamin D each day were 11 percent less likely to gain weight compared with women who took placebo pills. http://vitamin.lifetips.com/cat/62647/calcium/index.html
An other site tells about
3 food groups to begin to lower your risk of cancer.
1. Fiber Insoluble fiber sticks to free estrogens in the gut, and sweeps them out. Whether you’re trying to shed pounds or fight cancer, you need 35 grams of fiber each day.
2. Omega-3s Omega-3s are what’s known as essential fatty acids – essential because your body doesn’t produce them.
3. Cruciferous Vegetables Cruciferous vegetables such as arugula, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, brussels sprouts, bok choy and kale are rich in sulforaphane – one of the primary phytochemicals (protective compounds found in plants) that helps prevent cancer. (http://healthybodydaily.com/breast-health/dr-oz-breast-cancer-foods-that-fight-breast-cancer)The most important ingredients in this sense are called Arugula,Watercress and red cabbage.
When I read about it, I thought about Italy. I don't think there are less cases of cancer in Italy than in other countries. But Italians eat Arugula normally. So, what is wrong with it here?
