About

In a perfect world nutrition supplementation is not necessary. Unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world. We live in a modern world and the more advanced we become, the more unnaturally we live. We adapt and change our environment, often to our own detriment. As a result of this we need to take supplements for our nutritional needs. Ideally supplementation includes changes and improvements in dietary and nutritional habits.

Open Question: Where do I find information about substances and the effect on the human body?

I want to find a source I can study from that is specific on substances from simple sugars to complex chemicals and what information is available on it's general effect on the human body. I have a study schedule and I switched out biology for biochemistry but im trying to switch out nutrition with something that is very much like biochemistry but is specific to the human body. I thought adding 30 more minutes to anatomy but that seems mostly what we already have in our body rather than outside things and there effects on the human body.

Open Question: If everyone was a vegan the planet would be destroyed?

*This question was just removed by yahoo for some reason. Attention yahoo: let me have some free speech! There is nothing offensive in here, and if this is deleted again I will look into the matter!* Just had this realization, and nothing against vegans/vegetarians, so hear me out. In order to grow plants, fruits and vegetables (and lets be real we could never live a healthy life off of just one or two kinds we would need a wide variety) we would have to destroy natural habitats in order to plot fields and gardens and every that. Therefor, if everyone was a vegan, our entire planet would be planted and plotted and virtually destroyed. Animals would lose their natural habitats and hunting grounds so we could plant our gardens and fields for our food, and every area on this earth would be taken over by humans. We'd need A LOT of plants to feed everyone, and like I said, a wide variety of them too. It would take a lot to receive the nutritions we need. NOW THIS IS THE USUAL ARGUMENT: well, we're feeding the animals we eat food, so if we cease killing the animals we could just eat what we're giving them. Um, we are feeding those animals mostly HAY, GRASS, and SEEDS. Nothing we could ever live off of, and things that are naturally occurring. In order to grow the type of food we need, we'd need a CRAP TON of cultivating the land and clearing out that stuff (grass, hay, etc.) and any animals living in it. Don't try to give me untrue statistics. Anyone could tell you it takes a lot of cultivating to grow something WE could eat. And much of what we would HAVE to eat for nutrition on a natural based diet only occurs in certain climates (almonds, for example, only grow in a warm climate) Also, there is the argument that animals would overrun our planet, but I actually disagree. I think that many animals would go extinct, especially plant eating animals because they would just be competing for our food. There wouldn't be enough to go around, especially since we would be destroying every of their grassy fields to plant our gardens. There's a lot of humans to feed. And then when the plant eating animals died the meat eaters that eat them would croak too. Well look at that! I came full circle! I think the best we can wish for to keep a balance is better regulations in factories for animals, and people eating more fruits and vegetables in order to balance things out a bit. There is no "perfect world". Just putting this out there! We can't live off of corn. You think we can grow the wide variety of what we need to eat in a hayfield? When is the last time you saw a banana tree or some almonds in a hayfield? Perhaps you don't realize what it would take for us to receive a balanced diet. And also, you are still propagating lies. Most of those animals DO live off of hay grass and seeds! When is the last time you saw a cow munching on a banana? Chickens live off of tomatoes? Lol of course not! They eat SEEDS, and GRASS I'd like to invite you to live on an every corn diet.. Good luck my pal.... William: the obvious answer to what you said is that meat factories are in areas that are already part of "human civilization." Unless you know of some secret meat factories out in the middle of the forest, or wildlife reserve LOL I never said factories don't need better regulations... but it's silly to infer that we could live off of what they are fed, or that we could be fed with such simplicity. Just downright silly.

Open Question: Cannot decide on what snake to buy for my first "pet"?

I have a fully established (substrate for snakes,hiding place,big water dish, and heat lamp) 40 gallon terrarium. It's about 4.5 ft. I am considering a variety of different snakes but want to be sure before I purchase one that it will be right for me. I want a snake that will live happily in that size terrarium, I want a fairly docile snake that will not snap at me if fed appropriatley (seperate container) and will be for the most part friendly. I know younger snakes are nippy I will just tolerate it until they mature a little. Only want one snake. Here are my choices i've narrowed down: Corn snake - Everyone says how ideal they are, can they be fed frozen mice throughout their life? How often do they turn out mean or nasty tempered and hiss or bite their handlers? In general or on average how long will one adore if cared for right? Do they poop in substrate or water? Ball Python - Somewhat iffy, but still considering one, my main concern is their nutrition whatever I receive I want to care for properly, what food do they need and are they docile, how often do they bite I know also each snake is different but on average? HALF DWARF Burmese Python - While I heard the dwarf variety can be mean or nasty the place i'm possibly going to purchase (Art in Scales) claims the half dwarfs are very friendly but not sure if they are just being salespeople or honest. I'd really like some input on it cause I adore these snakes and being able to possess a smaller version of a huge 14-17 ft snake would be incredible! Again basic questions, docile nature? Diet? Specific enviornment? Thank you!

Open Question: I need some tips on good nutrition during chemotherapy, any help?

Hi, so I am fourteen and going through chemotherapy. I'm dealing fine with the nausea and getting through it, but the problem is that I'm only just gotten through my fourth chemo, and I've gained a whopping 20 pounds. I know, It's pretty insane. I can't exercise like I used to, with chemo and every. I have 15 chemo's left, and frankly, I already have cancer, I don't want worry about something as stupid as obesity. I don't want lose weight, because that's bad too. I just want to keep it below control. Anyone that can help me start? Well, to be honest gaining weight for me isn't an option. I used to be on the brink of being overweight, and now I'm way past that. I'm not worried about nausea,it sucks, but I can go through much worse. Chemo's a breeze, and I'm giving hell to cancer, there is no way obesity is going to receive close to me.

Resolved Question: should i be worried about my B&G Macaw?

We recently adopted a 20 year old Blue and Gold Macaw. The conditions he was living in were far from ideal and the diet was needy. He was only getting a seed based diet as the previous owner said she didn't feed him fresh fruits and veggies because of the fruit flies it would attract and the cage was dirty. Well, occasionally, he will kinda breathe heavy as if he is sighing and then he goes back to breathing normally but then today I heard him sneezing 2x but at different times and nothing more. Should I be concerned or do you think its just allergies? He doesn't have any discharge close his eyes or nose and I noticed that he is starting to molt a little also...could that be causing him to sneeze? He is talking, eating and drinking plenty and getting plenty of relax too so he doesn't seem sick. Any suggestions? Also, could it be our other animals making him sneeze? We have 2 dogs, 2 mice, and 2 bearded dragons as well and to a previous commenter...we have mixed his old food in with his new food and been feeding him fresh fruits and veggies (his food we bought him is a higher quality than what he was prior given)

Open Question: What can I add to milk for extra nutrition?

I have a very picky 3 year old son who does not eat fruit or vegetables with the exception of bananas and broccoli. I always make vegetables with dinner and always try to offer different variations of fruits for lunch but he will not try it. He LOVES milk and to make up for him not eating fruits/veggies I still put a container of baby food (that contains fruits and/or veggies) in the milk and he LOVES it and in fact will not drink the milk without it. HE DOES NOT DRINK FROM A BOTTLE ANYMORE, it is in a sippy cup and he drinks one in the morning and one an hour before bed. I have tried to put oatmeal as extra nutrition but even after blending into smaller pieces, he will not drink it because "it has things"..as he says..lol I would adore to add something like oatmeal to give him that extra nutrition...ANY *HEALTHY* SUGGESTIONS?

Millions of dogs eat kibble, and millions of dogs fill the waiting rooms of veterinarians, bad breath and every. These pets suffer from dermatitises of every sorts, or from cancers, joint problems, heart problems, kidney problems, digestive problems ("lack of enzymes"), liver problems, pancreas problems, coat problems, tooth problems, anal gland problems, glandular disorders, allergies, and soft doughy bodies brought on by eating a grain-based, artificial, highly-processed, additive-filled food touted as "healthy" for your dog. Thousands of dogs die from diet-induced diseases like bloat each year (and that is not to say every diseases are caused by diet, but many of them link strongly with processed diets and diet-induced periodontal disease and yet the industry keeps on churning out artificial pet foods and vets keep recommending them to their clients. Also, vets no NOTHING about canine nutrition!

Open Question: Is there a pre-med competition of majors?

I am told from every ends of the spectrum that there is or is NO such thing as a major better than another. I know the formula of getting into medical school pretty well: GPA + MCAT = Medical School Interview Good Interview + Impressive Resume = Medical School Admission But let me break my question down into these topics: (1) RACE & MAJOR COMPETITION However, when it comes to a pre-med, such as me, trying to pick a major, I am told since I'm asian, I'd be competiting with every the asians. If I were asian (well, no if there, I am asian) and a biological science major, I'm competing against Is this true? (2) COMPETITION WITH TOP LEAGUE SCHOOLS Another thing I keep hearing is that medical schools with first pick the applicant from Top Tier schools before applicants from any other school? Or is the applicant competing just with the applicant from his/her school? Or Both? Would it be Ivy League PreMed vs. Ordinary PreMed. Or Ivy League Anthro PreMed vs. Ordinary Anthro PreMed? Tell me if any of this is true? Please explain. (3) COMPETITION WITHIN MY SELECTED MAJOR Oh and I saved the best for last. Let me first start off with the #1 question: Is there such thing as a major better than another? It looks like Bio PreMed seems to be one of the most popular, but doesn't that also mean more competition? I mean do the admission boards even understand the amount of rigorous work a pre-med, engineer major has to do compared to what a pre-med humanities/bio major - even when they are comparing their gpa? Do they compare the gpa & mcat score of the pre-med engineer major with every the other pool of pre-meds of various majors or with other pre-med engineer majors? You may be wondering, "What exactly is my problem?". And the answer is - it's picking my major while having to think about the Stats of Majors & the competition that I have to deal with. I have a low gpa (due to personal reasons - one of them is having financial problems, and losing a parent due to cardiac arrest, also I had a major that I wasn't glad with), and I want to increase my gpa. One family member of mine keeps pushing me to do engineering, premed because: (1) It'll challenge me (2) If I don't receive into Med School, I can still receive a job, especially since I'm dealing with financial problems (3) Engineer majors know how to problem solve, which can arrive in pretty handy when studying & taking the MCAT's (4) Everyone respects engineering majors & if only I put my heart & soul into it, I can be successful. I don't want to mess with my gpa, because it's bad enough as it is, but I do want to challenge myself and I don't know if my choice of majors show how I challenge myself? I thought about doing Biology or Biochem because I wanted to enhance my knowledge in the studies of stem cell research and the one thing that really sparks my interests in medicine is regenerative medicine, while being a Film Minor (for my possess personal reasons). If I were to pick Engineering, it would be Chemical & Bio-molecular Engineering, but I'm not sure if I'm capable of handling it. I could always go with something out of the box, like Nutrition, or Kinesiology, or even Public Relations major. Or even double major: One science (perhaps, biology) and one non-science to increase my chances? I know it's every on me but my intentions are trying to receive into medical school, and will still try even if I receive rejected, feel free to share your thoughts with me, because as you can look, I'm a little undecided right now. AN OFF THE TOPIC QUESTION: SAY IF I DON'T receive INTO MED SCHOOL, & STILL WANT TO, THEN WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS? P.S: The more detailed your answer is, the more I'll appreciate it, and so will other pre-meds just like you

Resolved Question: Losing a little weight and getting toned, in need of some help!?

Recently over Thanksgiving, I spent the week in Hawaii visiting my sister and after spending quite some time in a bathing suit, I have realized that I am unhappy with my body and am determined to receive back into shape and lose a little weight. At the start of this new year, I am serious about becoming healthy the right way and getting into shape. I have always been athletic and I have played sports for the majority of my life; however, since I have stopped playing I've been out of shape and gained a little weight-obviously fat. I am 5'5" and weigh 140lbs. I haven't gotten any taller in several years and I used to be around 120. I would adore any advice on diet, what to eat and what not to eat as well as portions, and maybe some advice on physical activity so that I can lose weight and receive my body toned like it once was. I used to leave every the magic up to sports and since I have quit, I am somewhat lost on how to do this process. Any advice at every would be great!

Open Question: Trying to eat healthily, being told I have an eating disorder?

I am trying to eat healthily, since there is so much information on what food people should\shouldn't eat these days. I'm cutting down on things like doughnuts, sweets, chocolate- trying not to eat such savoury things every the time like white rice with gravy. Also with eating out- pizza, hamburgers etc. My parents and siblings are now telling me I have an eating disorder, which I think is crazy- my grandmother in Australia is in her 80's and has been eating healthily her whole life. SHe has wholegrains and doesn't eat sweets. I told my mom this, to which she said that my grandmother (my dad's mom) has also had an eating disorder. I already go to a psychiatrist, and my mom wants to tell her about my 'obssessions'. (I'm trying to reduce the meds as quickly as possible- they're not nice and have horrible side-effects. However: ) Since I am studying and am completely reliant on my parents for financial support, I do need to be compliant with them. I'm being called anorexic, it's driving me crazy. Does anyone have any advice on what to do about the situation? My mom has fibromyalgia, plus is on heavy medication for that as well as antidepressants. My dad has been overweight many times over the last 20 years, and is also on antidepressants. There is a lot of research regarding fibromyalgia and nutrition, and since when my dad feels down he can eat a whole bar of chocolate... What do you think?

Open Question: Teen nutrition/weight loss tips?

Hey everyone. I am 15 year old girl who is 5'4 and 161 lbs. I realize that I am overweight and need help shedding that weight. In tardy June/early July I am going on a cruise with my closest friends for my sweet sixteen, and I would adore to be able to wear a bikini, and to be confident in it. In the past month, I lost 3 pounds, but I'd like to lose it faster. I try to limit my junk food and eat healthier meals, but living with a big, Jewish family, eating healthy is difficult. I joined my local YMCA and make it there around 3 times a week. I usually focus on cardio, using the bike for 10 mins then the elliptical for 45, and sometimes I spend 20 on the weight machines. Is there anything else I can do to shed these pounds of faster? And please no diet pills, surgery, etc. I am only a teen and I am very busy with schoolwork and afterschool activities. Thanks so much for your time and every suggestions are appreciated!

Open Question: Nutrition for working out?

Now I know that if you work out you have to consume daily more than 50g of protein if you want any results. I think you have to multiply .7 by your body mass (pounds) and you will receive exact amount (in grams) of protein that you have to consume daily. But what about other nutrients like: fiber, carbohydrates, and fat? Do you have to consume them more?

Open Question: Best breakfast to fuel before a workout?

Im a highschool girls varsity basketball athlete, and recently went to a nutritionist because both my parents and coach were concerned with my eating habits. Among many other things, one topic we touched upon was eating an appropriate breakfast of mainly carbs with protein, fiber, and fat. I've also been reading a sports nutrition book, which advises a simmilar plan of mainly carbs, but less fat and protein as these will digest slower and fail to provide the energy in time for my game. SO having said this, i have a game tomorrow at 11-on the bus by 9. Here are some of my options... Bowl of whole grain cereal (moderate fiber) with skim milk Whole grain english muffin Whole wheat bagel Whole wheat toast Oatmeal I also have bananas, apples,berries, and frozen fruit. I have a plain chobani yogurt, and to go with the over i have peanut/almond butter, nonfat cream cheese, raisins, and that fake "healthier" butter. Thanks so much!!!
