Consuming red meat and heavily processed foods raises the risk of heart disease and stroke

Consuming red meat and heavily processed foods raises the risk of heart disease and stroke, according to a new report. The research followed almost 166,000 women and 44,000 men over a span of 24 to 30 years. Red meat, organic meat, processed meat, refined grains, sugary drinks are associated with increased inflammation. Leafy greens, carrots, tomatoes, whole grains, berries, nuts, fatty fish, and olive oil may provide a safe inflammatory response, according to the report. “When selecting food in our diet, we should take care of their pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory capacity,” says the editorial. The analysis cannot determine cause and effect, says the Food Information Council official. These results are published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

Did you know that CDC: New 10-State Salmonella Outbreak Connected To Mushrooms?

Wood ear mushrooms

Wood ear mushrooms appear to be at fault behind the most recent Salmonella outbreak.

Friends, Romans, country-people, don’t lend anyone your ears. Your timber ear mushrooms, this is certain, until you’ve seen Thursday’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statement.

Under the CDC, there is now a Salmonella Stanley outbreak that’s so far triggered at the very least 41 individuals getting ill across 10 states. The states are Arizona, California, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. California has received probably the most reported cases with 25. The outbreak has led to at the least four hospitalizations. As it is the scenario with individuals admitting which they read the book 50 Shades of Gray, the number of reported instances probably underestimates the amount of actual situations. Oh, Stanley.

The ear-y link is that dried wood ear mushrooms distributed from Wismettac Asian Foods, Inc. appear to be to blame. Those decided to go to restaurants in six packs of five-pound bags that have been defined as Shirakiku brand name Black Fungus (Kikurage). The packages bore the next Universal Product Code (UPC) bar codes: 00074410604305, item #60403. The mushrooms originally originated in Asia.
