Acrylamide-Should We Worry?

Someone wrote to me on Facebook asking about acrylamides. I confess that my first response was acryl-a-who? There seems to be more and more “stuff” out there for us to worry about when it comes to our food. And while some of it is legit, some of it isn’t worth our stress.

For me, acrylamides falls into the latter category. But here is what I discovered. Now it’s up to you to decide of it’s worth your worry.

Going Meatless

I can practically see your eyes rolling. We post some very cool social media with daily healthy tips, yummy recipes and some interesting information about our food and making healthier choices.

 

But now? Oh, yeah, baby. Time for the big guns.

 

Should we be eating meat? Not so much. I love you so I wish I could tell you there was good news about meat.

 

Despite what we see and hear in advertising, animal food is not vital to our lives and is damaging to our health and wellness.

 

The Dairy Myth

Doesn't it seem that for most of us we often have weight loss on our minds? We’ve been told that milk and other dairy products can be helpful in the battle of the bulge.

But is it true?

Just as they successfully sold pork to us as ‘the other white meat,’ marketers are hoping to sell us on the notion that milk and dairy products are the ‘second coming’ of weight loss. You may have thought this fight was over, but read one women’s magazine and you will find a celebrity endorsement of milk as a way to achieve your ideal weight.

Oh, What a Relief It Is

Look out, kids. It’s cold and flu season!

 

We’ve seen the ads and they make colds and flu seem as terrifying as anything Stephen King can imagine.
