This Week In Health News

Every week, The S-Life Mag will make sure you’re in the know about the latest scientific studies and current events pertaining to health, wellness, nutrition and more. This is the stuff you need to know for your body, mind and soul!

 

TOP STORY!

  • What keeps you up at night, kills your sex drive, causes you to gain weight and have trouble losing it, messes with your digestion and weakens your immunity? The answer is stress…and Americans are feeling it at an all-time high. According to an annual survey from the American Psychological Association, we’re more stressed than ever before, and the current state of politics has a lot to do with it. Of the 1,000 people surveyed, more than half said the political climate is a source of their stress and anxiety. So what can you do? Practice mindfulness and meditation, take a quality probiotic, do some yoga and incorporate foods into your diet that nourish the brain, heal adrenal fatigue, lower cortisol (the stress hormone) and regulate hormones. Think leafy greens, nuts, dark chocolate and berries. Yum!

 

MORE GOOD STUFF…

  • Next month, the FDA will hold a meeting to take a closer look at the word “healthy,” which could affect legal guidelines for food labeling in the not-so-distant future.

 

  • There are a lot of reasons to consider a gluten-free diet, but new research says otherwise. It found that people who abstain from gluten may have higher levels of mercury and arsenic in their bodies…and rice may be to blame. You see, rice absorbs metals from water and soil, and experts posit that many gluten-free eaters consume a lot of rice in the place of starchy foods that contain wheat.

 

  • Losing weight is only half the battle…after that, you have to keep it off. And that’s when an estimated 80% of people fail. But a new study suggests specific maintenance strategies, like daily weigh-ins and attending support group meetings, could go a long way in helping people retain their results.

 

  • Consuming seafood with high mercury levels could increase your risk of developing the neurological disorder ALS. (Pro tip: the plant pigment chlorophyll, found in green veggies and our Sakara Detox Water, helps the body shed heavy metals.)

 

  • Food safety labels (like “best by” and “use by”) are notoriously confusing and misleading. Luckily, they may soon be getting a makeover that won’t just make it easier—and safer—for consumers, but could also ultimately reduce unnecessary food waste.

 

  • There won’t be any schnitzel or bratwurst on the menu at the next official German government function, which will now be 100% vegetarian.

 

  • It’s a particularly good week to eat a dairy-free diet, as a widespread listeria contamination has caused Sargento and MDS Foods to recall multiple cheese products. The tainted cheese is linked to supplier Deutsch Kase Haus.
