How to Deal with Radicals

How to Deal with Radicals

Radicals are everywhere - creating danger to our health and well-being. But they aren't the kind of radicals that get talked about on the news.

I'm talking about free radicals - invisible molecules in our bodies that are unstable. These molecules are a natural byproduct of energy production - released when the oxygen we breathe interacts with the food we eat during metabolism. Even though they are natural, they are also dangerous. They need an extra electron to become stable and they are drawn to anything in our cells that will bind with them and donate one. They bind to, and damage, our cell walls, fats, proteins, or DNA - leading to chain reactions that cause premature aging. Fortunately, many of them are neutralized by antioxidants. Antioxidants bind with free radicals and keep them from doing so much damage.

Seven Ways to Hit the Sweet Spot on Sugar

Seven Ways to Hit the Sweet Spot on Sugar

In the last couple of months there has been a lot of buzz about the new documentary, Fed Up. The film, narrated by Katie Couric, takes a hard look at some of the factors that are driving preventable chronic diseases in our country. It's no secret that we are seeing dramatic increases in chronic metabolic diseases — like obesity, diabetes, lipid disorders and hypertension. But is our approach to dealing with these problems on target? The answers may surprise you.
