Health Impact News Editor Comment: The Food Police are here. They have been dispatched to schools to inspect all homemade school lunches brought from home to make sure they are approved. According to Sara Burrows of the Carolina Journal Online, “The Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human Services requires all lunches served in pre-kindergarten programs – including in-home day care centers – to meet USDA guidelines.”

So in one school district in North Carolina, State Agents are assigned to inspect homemade school lunches brought from home. One girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the agent who was inspecting all lunch boxes reports Carolina Journal Online.  The girl was then forced to purchase approved school cafeteria food being offered that day, which resulted in the girl eating three chicken nuggets instead. The girl’s mother and grandmother were not too pleased. You can read the full story here.

Recently we reported about how the Healthy Nation Coalition uncovered internal documents revealing that the  USDA Dietary Guidelines are influenced by Big Pharma and Industrial Food Companies. You can read the story here. We also reported last year about the government bailout of the poultry industry, because not enough people wanted to buy their mass-produced factory chicken. They produced too much chicken, so the government used your tax dollars to buy up the excess chicken. You can read the story here. So what is the government supposed to do with all the extra chicken from large-scale factory farms? Do you think it just might end up in government run school lunch programs?

State agent inspects sack lunches, forces preschoolers to purchase cafeteria food instead

RAEFORD – A preschooler at West Hoke Elementary School ate three chicken nuggets for lunch Jan. 30 because a state employee told her the lunch her mother packed was not nutritious.

The girl’s turkey and cheese sandwich, banana, potato chips, and apple juice did not meet U.S. Department of Agriculture guidelines, according to the interpretation of the agent who was inspecting all lunch boxes in her More at Four classroom that day.

The Division of Child Development and Early Education at the Department of Health and Human Services requires all lunches served in pre-kindergarten programs – including in-home day care centers – to meet USDA guidelines. That means lunches must consist of one serving of meat, one serving of milk, one serving of grain, and two servings of fruit or vegetables, even if the lunches are brought from home.

Therapeutic Use of the High-Fat Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet in Autism Spectrum Disorders

Therapeutic Use of the High-Fat Low-Carb Ketogenic Diet in Autism Spectrum Disorders

A new study published in Frontiers in Pediatrics has concluded that the high-fat low-carb ketogenic diet may improve mitochondrial function in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

The ketogenic diet was originally developed at John Hopkins Hospital in the 1920s to treat children with epilepsy. The diet has proved successful over a long period of history of stopping seizures in children where drugs fail.

The diet fell out of favor in recent years, due to the bias against saturated fats. However, with several meta-studies being published in recent years showing that there is no scientific basis of linking saturated fat consumption to heart disease, the ketogenic diet is being studied in many disease applications, including cancer, diabetes, and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and ALS.

There have also been studies conducted and published regarding the ketogenic diet’s effect on ASD. One study published last year (2013) in France showed a ketogenic diet improves multiple autistic behaviors.

Study: Low Salt Intake Associated with High Death Rates

Study: Low Salt Intake Associated with High Death Rates

A new article in the New England Journal of Medicine (August 14, 2014) studied the sodium levels in 101,945 persons from 17 countries. The scientists examined the association between sodium excretion and the outcome of death and major cardiovascular events. Sodium excretion correlates directly with sodium ingestion.

This article is another in a long-line of salt articles debunking the myth that we need to lower our salt intake. I have tested thousands of patients for their salt levels. I can assure you that the vast majority of patients are low in salt.

Baking with the Ancient Grain Einkorn

Einkorn is an ancient grain that is not yet commonly known in the western world, but used often in the Mediterranean region and in the mountainous areas of Europe. This grain is slightly finicky, completely delicious, good for you, has a slight yellowish tinge, and smells (and even looks) a little like corn flour.

Because of einkorn’s lower gluten elasticity, the following baking tips will help you bake successfully with einkorn and avoid a lot of frustration.

A Low Carbohydrate Diet Cures Diabetes

A Low Carbohydrate Diet Cures Diabetes

Diabetes is the great failure of the medical system. A generation of following the high-carb low-fat USDA approved food pyramid, along with Big Food’s highly processed carbohydrate-rich products, have produced a national epidemic of obesity and diabetes.

The medical system’s answer to type 2 diabetes is drugs. These drugs, however, are highly toxic with serious side effects, and they don’t work. A recent study that showed that insulin may actually accelerate death in type 2 diabetes, for example.

Diabetes, however, is not a condition that is caused by a lack of drugs. Research clearly links type 2 diabetes (and now type 3 diabetes) to insulin resistance caused by excessive carbohydrates in the diet. This issue is finally starting to get more attention in the mainstream media, fortunately.

In a recent article published in the journal Nutrition, the authors showed that there is continued success in using low-carbohydrate diets in the treatment of diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
