5 Ways to Afford Whole Foods on a Budget

budget whole foodWhole food — that is to say, unprocessed and unrefined food — has the reputation of being expensive. But there are many ways to add whole food to your diet while sticking to your budget. Seattle PI suggests a few:

  1. Buy seasonal: Fruits and vegetables are both cheaper and tastier when purchased in season.
  2. Use the bulk bins: You won’t pay for packaging, labeling and advertising.
  3. Grow your own: A sunny yard or even a window box can add cheap, fresh food to your plate.
  4. Use your freezer: Stock up and freeze when whole food is on sale.
  5. Reduce waste: Don’t let leftovers go to waste.

How to Save Gas This Summer

save gas this summerThe price of gas is high, but there are ways to get better mileage. Yahoo Autos suggests a number of gas-saving driving tactics you might not have thought of.  Here are a few:

Coast to a Stop

Brakes are wasteful — they take the gasoline-generated kinetic energy of your car and turn it into waste heat. Slowly coasting to a red light is actually much more fuel efficient.

Close the Windows and Use A/C at High Speeds:

Aerodynamic drag rises exponentially with speed­. At 60 mph or higher, keeping them closed and running the air conditioning will burn less fuel.

When Coasting Downhill, Leave the Car in Gear:

Coasting downhill in neutral is illegal in most states, and it’s always dangerous. But leaving the car in gear while coasting downhill actually is more efficient anyway;  the injectors in most fuel-injected engines today shut off automatically when necessary, so the engine consumes no fuel at all while the vehicle is coasting. But an engine idling in neutral still consumes fuel.

To see the rest of their suggestions, click on the link below.

Flush These “Dementia Markers” Out of Your Blood Stream

FlamingosDaily supplementation using a natural pigment called astaxanthin — the same coloring that gives flamingos their pink appearance — can reduce the accumulation of phospholipid hydroperoxides.

These compounds accumulate in the red blood cells of people who suffer from dementia, and scientists now believe that astaxanthin could help prevent dementia, including Alzheimer’s.

About 5.4 million Americans suffer from Alzheimer’s disease, and that number is only expected to go up in coming years.

According to a study in the British Journal of Nutrition:

“After 12 weeks of treatment, erythrocyte astaxanthin concentrations were higher in both the 6 and 12 mg astaxanthin groups than in the placebo group. In contrast, erythrocyte [phospholipid hydroperoxide] concentrations were lower in the astaxanthin groups than in the placebo group …

These results suggest that astaxanthin supplementation results in improved erythrocyte antioxidant status and decreased [phospholipid hydroperoxide] levels, which may contribute to the prevention of dementia.”

Take 4.5 Grams of This Each Day to Prevent or Fight Asthma

ways to prevent asthmaConjugated linoleic acids (CLA) may improve the airway hyper-reactivity in asthmatics, according to the results of a new study. A dose of 4.5 grams of CLA each day produced significant reduction in airway hyper-responsiveness. It also had favorable effects on body weight.

CLA is a fatty acid, which is found in ruminant meat and dairy products. Average intake of CLA has fallen over the years due to changes in the Western diet.

NutraIngredients reports:

“A significant body of science supports the potential of the ingredient to enhance ­lean body mass and aid in body sculpting. The new study … is the first to report that the ingredient may also have benefits for overweight asthmatics.”

Beware — Some ‘Green’ Cleaners are Deceptive and Toxic

green cleaner componentsThe manufacturers of the “Green” cleaning product Simple Green’s claim that it is non-toxic, biodegradable, non-hazardous, non-flammable, and non-corrosive.  But the Material Data Safety Sheet for Simple Green reveals that the formula contains 2-Butoxyethanol — a petrochemical solvent.

2-Butoxyethanol is defined as “harmful” by the European Union classification system. Environment and Health Canada has recommended that it be added to the Schedule 1 toxic substances list, and the state of California lists it as a hazardous substance. 

According to Green Med Info, the chemical’s effects include:

“Inhalation: … Symptoms may include sore throat, coughing, headache, nausea and shortness of breath … Skin Contact:  May cause irritation with redness and pain. May be absorbed through the skin with possible systemic effects.  Eye Contact:  Vapors are irritating and may produce immediate pain, redness and tearing. Splashes can cause severe pain, stinging, swelling. Chronic Exposure:   … [C]an cause damage to the liver, kidneys, lymphoid system, blood and blood-forming organs.”

It is thought that 2-butoxyethanol contributed to the significantly shorter lifespan of Exxon Valdez clean-up workers, which is why Corexit 9527, which also contains the chemical was banned in the United Kingdom.
