As we approach the Festive Season there are a few concerns, like the parties, functions and celebrations that are filling up our calendars, and as each year end approaches I keep thinking about my health and how much is too much and what does moderation really mean.
An article in the Conde Naste Traveller Magazine claims recent science says it takes more than just an apple a day to keep the doctor away.
It reads, "Can a Diet of Champagne, Chocolate, and Spicy Foods Keep You Alive Forever Science Says Maybe!
With Thanksgiving around the corner, feasting is on everyone's mind. But with so many studies revealing the next food-based fountain of youth, maybe this year its time to skip the turkey and create one (allegedly life-saving) meal to end all meals. We've put together the ultimate menu of dementia-preventing, life-enhancing foods for science, of course.
Champagne: Drinking one to three glasses of champagne a week wards off memory loss and dementia, according to a University of Reading study from 2013. Certain compounds in bubbly help delay the onset of brain disorders, like dementia, by encouraging healthy levels on proteins in the brain that usually deplete during aging.
Spicy Foods: Grab a handful of chilli peppers and the closest glass of milk (to calm your post-spice taste buds). A Chinese study found that those who ate spicy foods six or seven times a week had a lower risk of death from cancer or heart disease. Capsaicin, an ingredient in chilli peppers, has been also been linked to increased fat burning.
Mediterranean Meals: This diet filled with vegetables, fish, and healthy fats has been proven in studies to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's and breast cancer, and can nearly halve the risk of heart disease. Spicy hummus, anyone "
So there you go, its official, science is finally on our side!
What can I say We can't argue with science they say! I feel like I'm on the right path and surely that means I'm going to live forever!
Now thats a diet I can stick to, I can make it work, that's me sorted! Cancel the life cover. Cheers, I'll drink to that.
