The Power of Mushrooms: Nutrition, Benefits, & Risks of Edible Mushrooms | Ocean Robbins | FoodRevolution.org

SUMMARY

Mushrooms are one of the most widely available and popular plant foods. What is it that’s so special about mushrooms, why should you consider adding them to your diet, which ones are best, and which should you avoid?

Mushrooms have been eaten and used medicinally for thousands of years, all around the world. Ancient Egyptians considered mushrooms to be plants of immortality and recognized them as a gift from the god Osiris. They valued mushrooms so highly, only the royals were allowed to consume them; commoners were forbidden to touch, much less eat them.

Based on the details of ancient rock paintings, some historians think that the use of magic mushrooms was alive and well in 9,000 BC among indigenous populations of North Africa. (I don’t know where those cave artists found tie-dye paint, but you can’t argue with science!) Furthermore, statues and art thought to represent mushrooms have been found in Mayan and Aztec ruins in Central America, establishing their ceremonial importance in the Americas over many thousands of years.

Today, mushrooms are growing in popularity worldwide due to their nutritional properties and versatile uses in the kitchen. While annual consumption of mushrooms in the United States stabilized at an average of three pounds per person in the decade ending in 2015, the market has been growing steadily since and is projected to grow even faster globally over the next several years.

But what makes mushrooms so special? Are they good for the environment too? And what about poisonous and psychedelic mushrooms? How do you avoid the former and not take the latter by accident? And will I be able to stop myself from making at least one “fun guy” joke for the rest of this article? (Continued at source …)

Does Living In America Give You Higher Risk Of Getting Alzheimer’s Disease? – By Author Pam Popper, Ph.D. N.D.

Overmedicated, overfed, and malnourished, most Americans fail to realize the answer to lower disease rates doesn’t lie in more pills but in the foods we eat.With so much misleading nutritional information regarded as common knowledge, from “everything in moderation” to “avoid carbs,” the average American is ill-equipped to recognize the deadly force of abundant, cheap, unhealthy food options that not only offer no nutritional benefits but actually bring on a disease.

In this lecture, Pamela A. Popper, Ph.D. ND, speaks about the dire state of American health—the result of poor nutrition choices stemming from food politics and medical misinformation. But, more important, she shares the key to getting and staying healthy for life.

Backed by numerous scientific studies, Pamela A. Popper, Ph.D., ND details how dietary choices either build health or destroy it.

Model Village for Alzheimer’s Patients in France Makes Residents Feel Like They’re Still Independent – Good News Network

As the old African proverb says, “It takes a village to raise a child,” but it seems that same wisdom may also hold true when it comes to caring for elderly Alzheimer’s patients.

Rather than placing them in traditional memory care units, some groups charged with the care of these special seniors are taking a more innovative approach.

In southwestern France near the city of Dax, a community has been created with the specific needs of its 105 residents—all of whom suffer from Alzheimer’s in varying stages.

Built in the same spirit as De Hogeweyk, a purpose-built village for dementia patients in the Netherlands, it’s the first such facility in France.

In addition to nursing facilities, the Landais campus includes a grocery store, hair salon, cafeteria, library, and music room.

Residents are given as much freedom as their conditions allow, and treated to numerous entertainments.

Science Confirms Coffee Can Add Years to Your Life + Answer These Two Questions to Find Out How Happy You Are | From the Blue Zones Folks

Bringing the World’s Longevity and Happiness Secrets to American Cities

Rich Roll is a vegan ultra-endurance athlete, plant-based nutrition advocate, and host of the award-winning, chart-topping Rich Roll Podcast, where he interviews forward-thinking, paradigm-busting minds in the health, fitness, and nutrition world. He talked with Dan Buettner about The Blue Zones of Happiness and how we can all design our surroundings to stack the deck in favor of happiness. Watch the interview below.

In our blue zones research, we found that the healthiest, longest-lived people in the world were nudged into healthy behaviors by their environments. So when we were asked to try and implement some of these blue zones principles (called the Power 9) in American cities, we used evidence-based policies to change the actual environment in which people live.

Making permanent and semi-permanent changes to the environment is at the core of our Blue Zones Project communities.

Our minds are hardwired for novelty, so we crave new things. Our attention can only last so long. Take diets for example. After seven months, 90 percent of people have discarded their diets. Discipline is a muscle and muscles fatigue, so people revert back to their old behaviors.

If you want people to eat better, move better, socialize better, and live better, then you have to optimize their environments. That’s what we do in our Blue Zones Project communities with incredible success.

It’s the same with happiness.

Things like savoring each moment, gratitude, and meditation can work in the short term to make you happier. However, just like changing your diet, these techniques require you to remember and implement them on a regular basis. They are not strategies that ensure long-term happiness.

6 Factors For Happiness, According to the Newest Research

There are six factors that correlate to personal happiness no matter where you live. 

  1. Trust. Can I trust my neighbor?
  2. Tolerance. Can I live out my values?
  3. Community. Do I have strong social connections?
  4. Healthy life expectancy. Take our True Vitality Test to measure your life expectancy.
  5. GDP. Money does matter…up to a certain point.
  6. Freedom. Do I have the freedom to do the work that is right for me?

While it isn’t likely that you can pick up and move to one of the happiest places in the world where these factors are present, you can still optimize your own life, social circle, and everyday routine to find purpose, pleasure, and pride.
