Food “Deserts” or “Food Swamps?”

As any American who might watch a television talk show, read the New York Times, or even People magazine might know, First Lady Michelle Obama has been hard at work on her campaign to fight childhood obesity, Let’s Move. One of the main issues that Mrs. Obama was targeting was the lack of access to fresh fruits and vegetables in less affluent communities. Policy makers, advocates, and Mrs. Obama herself have been hard at work trying to combat these “food deserts.”

However, a recent study conducted by Dr. Helen Lee of the Public Policy Institute of California has shown that these poor communities are not devoid of fresh produce. While poor neighborhoods she looked at had twice as many fast food restaurants, and three times as many corner stores, as more well off communities, they also had almost twice as many grocery stores and supermarkets! Additionally, Dr. Lee found no difference in weight between children in communities that are financially polarized.

We all know how bad fast food is for us. It’s generally high in calories, high in fat and the salt content is tremendously high. It’s convenient, but so bad for our health.

Dr Norman Campbell, of the University of Calgary in Canada, worked on a recent study that compared the salt content of fast food in six different countries.

I have always been fascinated with the story of the Titanic – especially as portrayed in countless films about the tragic sinking, 100 years ago. I knew there were Jewish passengers on board but I never actually stopped to think whether they had kosher food or not. My mind just got stuck on the tragic loss of life.

In fact, the Titanic did have kosher food service and it even had a chef responsible for its preparation – Charles Kennell. But there is not really a lot of information about the kosher food service to be found.

A new study from Thailand indicates that turmeric can help to reduce the chances of heart attacks in patients who have recently undergone heart bypass surgery. Bypass surgery can actually slightly damage the heart muscle as it is starved of blood flow at points throughout the procedure. This can lead to an increased risk of heart attack.

The pigment in turmeric – a bright yellow color – called curcumin, can help to reduce the risk of heart attack.

First Seder in the Homeland

Mivasseret Zion, Israel (April 2, 2012) — The little girls stood on stage holding up a child’s painting of the Ten Commandments, quietly but confidently singing “Who Knows One,” the traditional Passover song about Jewish icons such as the Five Books of Moses, the Four Matriarchs, the Three Patriarchs, the two Tablets that Moses brought from Mount Sinai, and the Oneness of God.

It could have been a scene from any number of school Passover presentations, but these children were new immigrants to Israel from Ethiopia, demonstrating their Jewish knowledge for family members who, with them, are about to celebrate their first Passover in Israel.

I always thought that when one was depressed one turned to junk food for comfort. But according to a recent study in the Public Health Nutrition journal it is the other way around. The more junk food one  eats the more prone one is to depression. This study shows that there is an increased risk of depression in people who regularly consume junk foods – pizzas and burgers, doughnuts and croissants.

Researchers (from University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, and the University of Granada) also found that people who eat junk food regularly lead a more sedentary lifestyle, are likely to be smokers , and work over 45 hours a week.
