Long known to be linked to higher levels of cholesterol and heart disease, artificial trans fats are now being slowly removed from the food supply. Trans fats, found in many processed foods, such as cookies, crackers, frozen baked goods and other products, are no longer recognized as safe, according to a 2013 statement by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In June 2015, the FDA ordered food companies to phase out the use of all partially hydrogenated oils, the main source of trans fat in processed food, within three years. Ali Berg, University of Georgia Cooperative Extension specialist in the area of human nutrition and health promotion, welcomes the new regulations. Food manufacturers have been required to include trans fat content information on the Nutrition Facts label since 2006. That change led many companies to severely limit or eliminate their use of partially hydrogenated oils, but many products – especially snack foods – still contain some trans fats. What does this mean for consumers?First, make sure to check the Nutrition Facts label for trans fat and saturated fat content. According to Berg, a registered dietitian and nutritionist, you should choose products with as few grams of trans fat as possible and be wary of products that contain partially hydrogenated oils on their ingredients list. The Nutrition Facts label can state 0 grams of trans fat if the food product contains less than 0.5 grams of trans fat per serving, so if a product contains partially hydrogenated oils, it might contain small amounts of trans fat even if the label says 0 grams of trans fat. “This is where the new regulations really make a difference to consumers,” Berg said. “By 2018, even those ‘hidden’ fats will no longer be allowed in our food.”While eliminating trans fats from your diet is a wise decision, Berg wants to make sure that consumers make the distinction between trans fats and other types of dietary fats that are important for good nutrition. Not all fats are bad. Fat provides flavor, consistency and stability in foods, while also helping you feel full. “It’s not that all fat is bad fat,” Berg said. “It’s the types of fat and the amount of it that we eat that can cause health problems.” Healthy fats are important for proper growth and development, especially among infants, toddlers and children. Dietary fats are also a major source of energy and help in the absorption of vitamins A, D, E and K. Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, referred to as “heart-healthy fats,” can be found in plant and animal products. Regular consumption of these fats is associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. Good fats can be found in avocados, olive oil, omega-3 fatty-acid-rich fish (like salmon, mackerel, trout and tuna), eggs, nuts, beans and seeds. Increasing your intake of good fats and decreasing your intake of bad fats, like saturated fats and trans fats, including partially hydrogenated oils, will help reduce your risk of heart disease and will improve your health overall, Berg added. The FDA also recommends these tips when choosing foods: Switch from stick margarine to soft margarine (liquid, tub or spray). Limit commercially prepared (ready-made) baked goods like muffins and snack cakes. For an easy swap, try prepackaged cut apples or baby carrots in place of packaged cookies or crackers. Choose lean cuts of meat and skinless poultry. Substitute fat-free (skim) or low-fat (1 percent) milk and milk products (such as yogurt and cheese) or fortified soy beverages for full-fat (whole) milk and milk products. Eat plenty of foods that are naturally low in fat and high in dietary fiber, such as whole grains, beans, peas, fruits and vegetables. Cook and bake with liquid oils, like canola or olive oil, instead of solid fats, like shortening, butter or lard. Try baking, steaming, grilling or broiling. These cooking methods do not add extra fat. When eating out, remember to ask which fats are being used to make the food you’re ordering. You can also ask to see nutrition information, which is available in many fast food and chain restaurants, and choose a lower fat option. read more

Are humans evolving? If so, should they? Two recent articles asked these questions as if natural selection is something we should no longer allow to push us around. We should take control of it for our own good. But then, it wouldn’t be natural selection, would it? On the BBC News, Olly Bootle posted a big picture of the elderly big-beard Darwin and asked, “Are humans still evolving by Darwin’s natural selection?” Ever since the father of evolution proposed his theory, “scientists have wondered whether humans were resourceful enough to remove themselves from the grip of natural selection,” he said. Under a photo of a moon-boot print next to a bare footprint, the caption reads, “Could technological advances stop the human species from evolving?” The tone of the article is that it can, and humans should take control of natural selection. Bootle pointed to examples of microevolution in humans – lactose intolerance, changes in height or weight or skin color, increasing life expectancy – and admitted these minor changes are like those Darwin saw: “In any case, the changes were very small and very slow, similar to those at work in Darwin’s evolutionary studies.” But Darwin, we all know, was talking about a far greater world view – the evolution of all life from a primordial cell. Bootle omitted any evidence for that. What, then, of our evolutionary future? “Technology may have stopped some evolutionary forces such as predation and disease, but that does not mean humans have stopped evolving,” he said, inserting a brief doubt whether we can discern our own evolution from the inside. But globalization and technology bring powerful forces into the game: “The direction of our future evolution is likely to be driven as much by us as by nature,” Bootle ended. “We may be less dependent on how the world changes us, but ever more so on our growing ability to change the world.” It’s about time we do, said elderly Nobel laureate Christian de Duve in an interview with Clint Witchalls on New Scientist, who summarized the interview this way: “We have evolved traits that will lead to humanity’s extinction, says Christian de Duve – so we must learn to overcome them.” But why would humans want to interfere with the process that brought them up? De Duve explained that it’s because we are rapidly exhausting our natural resources. Then he summarized the standard view of natural selection as an unguided, uncaring process when Witchall asked him, “You think that natural selection has worked against us. How?”Because it has no foresight. Natural selection has resulted in traits such as group selfishness being coded in our genes. These were useful to our ancestors under the conditions in which they lived, but have become noxious to us today. What would help us preserve our natural resources are genetic traits that let us sacrifice the present for the sake of the future. You need wisdom to sacrifice something that is immediately useful or advantageous for the sake of something that will be important in the future. Natural selection doesn’t do that; it looks only at what is happening today. It doesn’t care about your grandchildren or grandchildren’s grandchildren.This strange series of anthropomorphisms about natural selection was followed by an even more bizarre one, the labeling of this kind of evolutionary short-sightedness as “original sin.” Indeed, that was the title of his latest book: Genetics of original sin (Yale University Press). For salvation, we must “act against natural selection,” de Duve told the interviewer, “and actively oppose some of our key genetic traits.” Witchalls worried that population control (the cause of resource depletion) might be “ethically dubious”. De Duve responded that the number of inhabitants needs to be reduced somehow. “Hunters do it by killing off the old or sick animals in a herd,” he pointed out. But lest he be found to support negative eugenics (e.g., abortion, euthanasia, genocide), he added, “but I don’t think that’s a very ethical way of limiting the population.” If it’s not very ethical, maybe it’s a little bit ethical. What if people in power decide it is very ethical? Would they pay any attention to the advice of an aging biologist? Whatever he meant, he advocated birth control as the best method for population reduction. Giving more power to women, he feels, can also help. Why would that be? “Speaking as a biologist,” he said, “I think women are less aggressive than men, and they play a larger role in the early education of the young and helping them overcome their genetic heirloom.” He did not seem to consider whether it would also decrease warfare and totalitarianism, which seem to have been big players in population reduction, particularly in the 20th century. Did he mean that women should teach the young not to get married and have children? Did he consider whether the aggressive men, after giving women some power, would take it back? Whatever he meant, he remained “cautiously optimistic,” in order to give a message of hope to the young that they can do something about their evolution – although presently “there is not much evidence that this is happening.” Maybe he feels false hope is good for their evolution.You have just witnessed smart people acting dumb. If incoherence is a measure of folly, then please explain how Bootle and de Duve were not incoherent by considering the human mind the product of a mindless, uncaring, unguided, amoral process, then lecturing us on ethics and wisdom. What is ethics in Darwinland? What is wisdom? Take away these concepts from their thieving hands, where they raided the Judeo-Christian smorgasbord of values, and they are empty handed, because they cannot get such things at Darwin’s table. Natural selection is what natural selection does. If it produces a brain by mistake (01/26/2011), or a venomous snake, then natural selection “doesn’t care” one whit, as de Duve himself admitted. “It doesn’t care about your grandchildren or grandchildren’s grandchildren.” It is totally selfish, shortsighted, and uncaring. Ethics and wisdom are defined by what natural selection does, period. If it gives rise to a population that destroys itself, so be it. Happens all the time. Why fight it? Notice that de Duve and his interviewer know about the Bible. They know the Judeo-Christian doctrine of original sin. They feel it. When Witchalls asked him about his use of the term “original sin,” he answered, “I believe that the writers of Genesis had detected the inherent selfishness in human nature that I propose is in our genes, and invented the myth of original sin to account for it. It’s an image.” He quickly added, “I am not acting as an exegete – I don’t interpret scripture.” Well, he just did, and a jolly botched interpretation of Genesis 3 and Romans 2-3 it was. Instead of sticking to his job as a biologist, he followed up his myth information by preaching a salvation sermon with all the fervor of an evangelist: “We must act against natural selection and actively oppose some of our key genetic traits.” As if we could. That’s like telling dogs to actively oppose their dogness. There he goes again, stealing concepts like responsibility, wisdom, and morality from the Christian world view. Christian de Duve is a CINO, Christian in name only (literally). One wonders if his parents had better hopes for him by giving him that honorable name than to see him become, despite his accomplishments in genetics, an incoherent babbler and peddler of self-refuting philosophy. As for Olly Bootle, this is what our education system produces when Charlie worship, the state religion, cannot be criticized: a complete dupe for the Darwin dope.(Visited 41 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 read more
INDIANAPOLIS – APRIL 03: Head coach Mike Krzyzewski of the Duke Blue Devils gestures as he coaches in the first half against the West Virginia Mountaineers during the National Semifinal game of the 2010 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship at Lucas Oil Stadium on April 3, 2010 in Indianapolis, Indiana. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)For several years, the Duke marching band and the Cameron Crazies have collaborated to create an unlikely Cameron Indoor Stadium tradition. The band plays Cascada’s 2005 dance hit “Every Time We Touch” as the students sing along to the lyrics. The tradition continued on the road this weekend at the Final Four in Indianapolis, and returned to Cameron for this afternoon’s welcome home celebration honoring the national champs. During the festivities, Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski led the crowd in singing “Every Time We Touch,” and it was entertaining to watch. This wasn’t the only musical moment of the afternoon for Krzyzewski, as he revealed which rap artist he’s developed an appreciation for during the season. I’m sure a fifth national title is the real music to his ears, though. read more
