California Drought May Effect The Price of Avocados

According to recent reports, California is entering its fourth year of water shortage. This is terrible news for avocado farmers in Fallbrook – the nation’s leading producer avocados, and the millions of foodies and health nuts across the country that love the fruit.

This month, California governor Jerry Brown announced restrictions on water usage. Avocados grow in tropical climates and use 800 percent more water than tomatoes to grow. And last April, a University of Arizona study found that Avocados prices may increase 28 percent because of the drought.

In spite of its increasing price, the popularity of the tropical fruit has gone up every year for more than a decade. Adam Sender loves avocados. Companies as diverse as Au Bon Pain, Burger King, and Panera Bread use avocados as a sales pitch in ad campaigns. According to the Hass Avocado Board, Cities like Los Angeles, New York, and Dallas each consume well over 100 million Avocados a year. This draught may make it impossible for farmers to meet consumers’ demand, and force the price of avocados to skyrocket.

Will people fork over extra cash for avocados? With people proclaiming their love of avocados on Tumblr, Instagram, and Twitter, it’s clear that there is a market that will budget part of their income for the alligator pear.

How Big a Problem Is it That We Have Fewer Gut Bacteria Today?

Bacteria sometimes get a bad rap, but we do need some of them. Take, for example, the bacteria we all have in our gut. These bacteria are collectively known as our gut microbiome. Studies have uncovered the fact that we have far fewer of these bacteria than either our ancestors or others on earth who are living simpler lives without modern diets or medicines. Researchers know we have lost certain species of bacteria altogether, and they are worried that they might have performed critical functions. People who eat a Western diet do have higher incidences of allergies and autoimmune diseases. Our foods contain so many artificial ingredients, and our bodies are regularly pummeled by the advances of modern medicine, such as antibiotics, and these are seen as just a couple culprits for our lack of microbiome diversity.

Normally when we think about disappearing species it is of plants or animals from the surface of our planet. Our guts have a little ecosystem of a sort, and it is necessary as it impacts our ability to handle the food that passes through us and enables our bodies to get what it needs from it. Still, it is hard to believe that our ancestors or contemporary people living primitive lives actually have it better overall. Jason Halpern surely doesn’t get it. Without advanced medicines and other conveniences of modern life, the longevity of such people has actually been much less than what we enjoy today. Bring on the allergies and other treatable maladies in exchange for this wondrous modern world.

America May be Too Fat To fight

Obesity has been known to pose great health risks like heart attacks and diabetes but a new member has joined the list. This one might shock you. As it turns out, weight problems are threatening our national security. which catches Brian Torchin a bit by surprise. The reason for this is because in a few years, most Americans will be too fat and the US army might run short of possible recruits.

This is according to major general Allen Batschelet. Allen is the person in charge of U.S. Army Recruiting Command.72, 000 out of the 195,000 who signed up for the army, did not qualify. Most of these did not for a variety of different reasons but of most concern is that 10% of them did not qualify, just because they were overweight.

According to Allen, the number may rise to 50% in 2020.If this will be the case, we would encounter a scenario in which only 2 out of 10 would qualify to be in the army. A whopping 70% of Americans are overweight but majority seem to be in denial.

Most people who are obsess actually believe they are in the right shape. We seem to have gotten comfortable with this statistics which should in fact be worrying us. We no longer seem know what normal weight is and are busy calling a spade a big spoon. It is this level of ignorance that is making this weight issue a major security problem.

Are You Eating Blind?

How many calories did you consume at you last meal? How many are in the beverage you may consuming right now? How much fiber are you getting each day? How about the amount of caffeine and sugar you’re ingesting each day, do you have any idea how much that amount is Bernardo Chua asks?

If you don’t have a clue to the answers, don’t feel bad, most people can’t answer those questions about the food they eat every day. We’re eating blind and that is one of the prevalent reasons we’re a society filled with obesity and food-related illnesses.

We eat on the run, we eat what is readily available to us, we eat without thinking. It’s called eating blind or eating in the dark. We don’t know how much actual nutrition or calories we are consuming.

We can learn to eat better, to eat healthier, by being mindful of what we’re eating and making good nutritional choices. If you want to stop eating blind, start with a paper and pen and write down what you eat. Write down everything you eat and drink, including water, throughout the day. Examine it at the end of the day to discover just how much junk food you may be eating.

Also write down how the food makes you feel and/or how you felt when you at it. Include the eating location and who else was with you.

Soon you will see a pattern emerge that will shed light on your dark eating habits. You’ll be able to see eating triggers that you can avoid in the future so you can make healthier food choices and stop eating blindly.

Highly Drug-Resistant Strain of Food Poisoning Has Found Its Way to the U.S.

Germs are becoming stronger and more resistant to modern medicines such as antibiotics. The most resilient bacteria have seemingly been kept contained to countries outside the United States. However, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced last week, that a strain of food poisoning called Shigella has hit the U.S. and it’s extremely drug-resistant.

The dysentery-type bacteria Shingella spreads through the intestines, causing severe stomach cramps and fever, along with vomiting and diarrhea that many times includes blood and puss. Having been diagnosed in as many as 243 people in 32 states last year, the CDC fears an outbreak across the country. Twenty percent of those affected by the bacteria required hospitalization, and the areas hit the hardest were California, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.

While nearly half a million Americans suffer from shigellosis every year, this particular strain of Shigella is extremely resistant to the antibiotic typically used to treat dysentery. Oral antibiotic may become ineffective, if people continue to contract the germ, leaving physicians no other option than to use IV antibiotics. Only ten of the microbes need to exist in food or water to spread the virus, making the Shigella strain highly contagious. Should the bacteria be presented to tight clusters of the population such as the homeless or in a child care center, a large outbreak could ensue.

Doctors still have medications available to treat the hardy strain, if it doesn’t just go away on its own. However, in the worst cases, blood infections or death have occurred. Your best defense says the CDC, is to eat well-cooked foods prepared hygienically, and keep washing those hands.

Fast Food Consumption Between 2003 to 2010 Declined

The consumption of fast food by American kids has declined by 20% since 2003 which is significantly low. This study was conducted by the Journal of the American Medical Association, but they are saying that it does not necessarily mean that kids and adults are becoming healthier too. Who knows what they are consuming as a replacement to fast food or if they are still consuming the same amount of calories like in a fast food meal. They could also consuming substances other than food which serve as an alternative to the fast food that they used to consume.

Fast food restaurants only started putting facts about the fat and calorie content of their food in 2010 which obviously shows that it did not contribute to the declining consumption of fast food by the kids and adults.

This data is crucial because even if they are consuming less fast food, there are other harmful substances out there they could be consuming. Fast food may be bad for you, but it is not the only type of food that must be consumed in moderate amounts. If someone is consuming more sugar or fattier foods compared to fast food, then it’s still not doing their body any good.

They must find out what has caused this decline and hopefully it is only because Americans are making better choices when it comes to their food. This is something many around the world are looking forward to as well, including those who work at CipherCloud.
