• Why do people think that lemon juice is good for you? what about Apple cider vinegar?

    Best answer: The alkaline diet hypothesis works on the assumption that the ash, which is left behind after combustion in a bomb calorie experiment of a food, is of a certain pH. It is then claimed that the metabolic breakdown of the food in the body produces a similar "ash" in the body with a similar pH. This pH is then claimed to have and effect on the body and its homeostasis.

    This is understandable if you know how a bomb calorie experiment works. With cider apple vinegar, the water is driven off, then the acetic acid component is then driven off or combusted (into water and CO2 which are both driven off), with these two gone the acidic property of the acetic acid is lost, the final pH then relies on the combustible products of whatever residues are left behind.

    The problem arises, and why many call the alkaline diet puesuoscience, is that the body has a very powerful pH balancing system plus that happens in a test tube may not be related to the inside of a living cell.

    That may happen is if you overeat certain foods you may have problems.

    In regards to apple cider vinegar it can have uses it have a corrosive effect on warts due to its acetic acid content, or stop acid reflex by signalling the stomach that the right pH is met (and hence stopping acid production).

    Best answer: White rice gets its bad name because many people view the way in which is it processed is unhealthy.

    White rice is brown rice with the outer husk, bran and germ with moved. Although it still does contain bran, vitamins and minerals they are much less than with brown rice, unless fortified as with in the USA. This has caused a few people to believe that white rice is simply empty calories. Its much the same with margarine spreads, plant based ones with trans fats are worse than butter ones which are worse than plant based ones (without trans fats) when in fact over consumption of any of these will raise your cholesterol levels from the natural baseline.

    However, in the East white rice is often served as a staple and is eaten with vegetables (which provide enough fibre etc etc when its all digested together) and/or protein sources, and not commonly smothered in sauces what have added sugar like in the West.

    But with all things over consumption of it can be bad for you and there is research suggesting that over consumption of it can lead to type diabetes but this is not fully concluded.

  • What's the difference between a vegetarian and a vegan?

    Best answer: Vegetarianism is a diet. A vegetarian does not consume animals. This means no meat, gelatin (which is made from bones, skin, and cartilage), and rennet (found in some cheeses, made from enzymes in the stomach of ruminant mammals). Veganism is a stance against animal exploitation. Vegans do not consume or use... show more

    Veganism is a stance against animal exploitation. Vegans do not consume or use anything that comes from an animal. This includes meat, dairy, eggs, leather, fur, wool, etc.

  • If humans are meant to eat meat then why do we cook and flavour it with plants to taste good?

    Sauces, spices, marinades, seasoning, rubs, they are all plant based. Meat on its own tastes bland and gross. So if we were truly meant to eat meat then shouldn't we be eating it raw? Why do we cook it then flavour it with plants?

  • When someone buy vegetables and ask the seller “what do you have that’s in season in these parts” what does it mean?

    Transportation is the biggest contributor to global warning. So many people want to eat local, in season veggies. They avoid the pollution and veggies are generally fresher and haven't lost as many nutrients as those shipped from halfway around the world.

    I’m currently a pescatarian wantinh to be vegan in the future. I am not concerned about any nutrients and I know I will need to supplement B12 (And possibly Vitamin D seeing as I live in England and sun doesn’t exist XD) The only one I’m a little concerned about is Omega-3 DHA and EPA. I know i can get ALA from flax, chia seeds and all that, but im still unsure about the other two. My main thought is that, just like how cows and chickens get their protein from plants, wouldn’t it work the sane for fish? Like could I eat foods like nori, algae and spirulinah instead. Because as a huge seafood lover, it seems like a win-win as i also get the taste, along with the same benefits as fish. Or would it be better to just take algae supplements ? Thanks!

  • I ate a small vegan brownie and microwaved them. After eating, I noticed mould spots on two other brownies, could I get ill or food poison?

    Best answer: Your question is not clear. Did you cook the brownies in the microwave? Or just warm/soften them in the microwave? How long ago? Have they been setting around for several days?

    IMO, whichever, I doubt you'll get sick from a bit of mold....if you ate any.

    But I would throw the rest into the trash.
