Nutrition Labels Aimed to Dupe Consumers—And How to Tell What You’re Really Eating

My Well-Being Powered by Humana Launches “Get Moving Challenge” 30-Day Fitness and Nutrition Program in September

Diane Cary still chuckles when she remembers the scene she witnessed in a supermarket cereal aisle. A mother and her child were haggling over which cereal to get. The mother insisted on Grape Nuts because she felt it was healthy, but the kid desperately wanted Count Chocula. Exasperated, the mom put both boxes side-by-side and proposed they review the nutrition labels and buy the more nutritious of the two. When Cary passed the family again in another aisle, they had two boxes of Count Chocula in their cart.

Hair loss… on a woman? It’s happening to increasing numbers of us – and it eats away at your femininity like an acid

Hair Expert and Author Toni Love Presents Third Annual Toni Love Hair Loss and Business Conference

My smile is big and my make-up perfect but, as always, my thin hair and 4in bald patch spoil my look. I started life with hair so bushy my father used to say I looked like the American comedian Harpo Marx. But in the Seventies – when I was 16 and long, straight hair was in fashion – I took the fateful step of having it straightened at a local salon. Bald truth: Wendy today, left, and right, after hair transplant surgery seven years ago I had a terrible reaction to the chemicals they used, suddenly feeling as if my scalp was on fire. My hair fell out in big clumps, leaving it thin and sparse, and I was horrified to be told the damage was irreversible. I spent a fortune consulting a trichologist, who informed me the hair-straightening debacle had triggered pattern baldness. I’d inherited the risk of this from my father, who was balding by the age of 25.

Female Hair Loss Tackled Ahead of Autumn Party Season

This may be easier for women because inherited hair loss ( androgenetic alopecia ) causes a general thinning that is usually not as severe as it is in men. Hair sprays, dyes, and perms can help make the hair appear fuller. In women with inherited hair loss, hair care and the occasional use of grooming products, hair sprays, hair color, teasing, permanents, or frequent washing will not increase hair loss. But if your hair loss is caused by hair care, then perms and dyes may contribute to more hair loss. Recommended Related to Hair Loss See All Male Pattern Baldness Topics

ESSAY; When ‘Health’ Supplements May Do Harm

The 2001 clinical trial, sponsored by the National Eye Institute , also found that taking these supplements reduced the risk of vision loss caused by advanced age-related macular degeneration, or AMD, by about 19 percent. Supplements Still No Magic Bullet for Eye Health However, there is no evidence from this study to suggest that taking nutritional supplements can prevent people who currently do not have vision problems from getting AMD in the future, said Dr. Emily Chew, deputy director of the Division of Epidemiology and Clinical Research at the National Eye Institute, and a lead researcher in the AREDS study. According to the study, 50 milligrams daily of beta carotene, 500 milligrams daily of vitamin C, 400 international units of vitamin E, and 80 milligrams of zinc were found to be effective doses of each supplement. In general, many eye health experts may recommend supplements only for those who already experience specific types of vision loss, said Dr. Penny Asbell, director of the Cornea Service and Refractive Surgery Center at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York. For example, according to Asbell, supplements may have more benefit to those who suffer from dry age-related macular degeneration, a less severe form of AMD, because of the slower progression of vision loss, rather than the more severe wet AMD.

Truth Squad: Supplements for Eye Health

Others were from crushed bacteria. I thanked the clerk for spending the time to educate me. Conventional medical education and treatment guidelines discourage the use of vitamins and supplements as therapeutics for heart disease, largely because they have not been shown to have any benefit. Interestingly, while diets emphasizing foods rich in certain vitamins correlate with improved cardiovascular and cancer risks, the pill forms of these same nutrients have proved to be no more effective than placebos. In some studies, the vitamins have proved to be worse than placebos, while in other trials, combinations of vitamins have actually reduced the benefits of proven treatments. Nonetheless, the appeal of supplement medications is understandable, especially when the costs, complexity and publicized risks of prescription medications are all on the rise.

UNICEF advises Kazakhstan to add iodine and vitamins to flour
