DIETARY TIPS/SUGGESTIONS

The most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted was "The china study by Dr. Colin Campbell. It confirmed that a plant based diet is the best diet that promotes optimum long term health.
Eat plenty of vegetables especially dark green leafy vegetables, fruits ,whole grains, nuts and seeds beans and peas in as fresh a state as possible. Avoid all foods that have artificial colors,.flavors ,preservatives and refined sugars
Also try to avoid processed food and canned food. Read the ingredients of whatever food items you purchase,choose the foods that are the least processed with the fewest additives.
STOP THIS .IT IS VERY UNHEALTHY
Always cook with stainless steel or glass  because stainless steel cookware is low in cost and can be used at high heat. It has a sturdy cookware surface that does not wear down easily.. Health problems from stainless steel are rare. use no aluminum cook ware.
There have been concerns in the past that aluminum cookware increases the risk for Alzheimer's disease Uncoated aluminum cookware is a greater risk.
Copper pots are popular due to their even heating. But large amounts of copper from unlined cookware can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Some copper and brass pans are coated with another metal to prevent food from coming into contact with copper. Over time, these coatings can break down and allow copper to dissolve in food. Older copper cookware may have tin or nickel coatings and should not be used .
Cook on stove or gas or oven ,Try and avoid the too much use of microwave.
Avoid the use of PLASTICS in microwave or any activity that involves heat because,
research also strongly suggests that at certain exposure levels, some of the chemicals in these products, such as bisphenol A (BPA), may cause cancer in people.
BPA is a weak synthetic estrogen found in many rigid plastic products, food and formula can linings, . Its estrogen-like activity makes it a hormone disruptor, like many other chemicals in plastics. Hormone disruptors can affect how estrogen and other hormones act in the body, by blocking them or mimicking them, which throws off the body's hormonal balance. Because estrogen can make hormone-receptor-positive breast cancer develop and grow, many women should limit their exposure to these chemicals that can act like estrogen so please.Don't cook food in plastic containers or use roasting/steaming bags; the plastic residues may leach into food when heated in a regular or microwave oven.REMEMBER GOOD HEALTH IS A CONTINUOUS HABIT NOT AN EVENT
