White rice most dangerous

White rice is much more dangerous in terms of glycemic index than white bread. It has glycemic index of 102.

We often tell people not to take cola drinks but they eat white bread. The glycemic index for white bread is 100% and that for cola drink is 90%. Traditional Indian drinks like Rooh Afza, Khas Khas may also contain more than 10% sugar.

The recommended sugary drink does not contain more than 2-3% sugar, which is the amount present in oral rehydration solution. People leave a cola drink and take mashed potato, which has glycemic index more than that of a cola drink (102 versus 90).

Pizza has a glycemic index of 86. Table sugar has a glycemic index of 84, while that of jam is 95. French fries have a glycemic index of 95.

Most people add sugar in food and snacks because sugar is a preservative. Less the sugar, earlier the food will be spoiled.

To avoid refined carbohydrates in diet, if one has to choose, then the most dangerous is white rice, followed by white bread and then comes white sugar.

White rice as risky as white bread in causing diabetes

Eating more white rice increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, especially for Asian populations.

Qi Sun, PhD, of Harvard, and colleagues, reported in the BMJ that patients who ate the greatest amounts of the grain had a 27% greater risk of developing the disease than those who ate the least, and the relative risk was higher among Asian patients.

The glycemic index of white rice is higher than that of other whole grains, largely due to processing.

Sun and colleagues conducted a meta–analysis of four prospective cohort analyses in Asian and Western populations, totaling 352,384 patients with follow–up ranging from 4 to 22 years. During that time, there were 13,284 incident cases of type 2 diabetes. Asians generally had a higher level of white rice consumption than Western populations.

They also found a dose–response effect –– with each increase in rice serving per day, risk of type 2 diabetes rose by 11% (95% CI 1.08 to 1.14, P<0.001).

White sugar as addicting as heroin and cocaine

White sugar is addictive and the number one cause of heart disease. The sweetener prompt the same chemical changes in the brain seen in people who abuse drugs such as cocaine and heroin.

Quoting a study presented at the American College of Neuro–psychopharmacology’s annual meeting, Dr Aggarwal said that evidence from an animal model suggests that bingeing (drinking large amounts of sugar water) when hungry can cause behavioral changes and even neurochemical changes in the brain which resemble changes that are produced when animals or people take substances of abuse. These animals show signs of withdrawal and even long–lasting effects that might resemble craving.

A “sugar addiction” may even act as a “gateway” to later abuse of drugs such as alcohol. The stages of addiction, as defined by the American Psychiatric Association, include bingeing, withdrawal and craving.

In the study rats were denied food for 12 hours a day, then were given access to food and sugar (25 percent glucose and 10 percent sucrose) for 12 hours a day, for three to four weeks. The chemical involved in the addiction on the body is dopamine.

White sugar, white rice, and white maida, the triad of refined carbohydrates are all addicting and related to insulin resistance, obesity and heart disease.

Eating more white rice increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, especially for Asian populations.

Qi Sun, PhD, of Harvard, and colleagues, reported in BMJ that patients who ate the greatest amounts of the grain had a 27% greater risk of developing the disease than those who ate the least, and the relative risk was higher among Asian patients.

5 Ways to Stop A–Salting Your Kidney

Eating white salt is like a slow poison. If the amount of salt is reduced to less than 1 teaspoon per day, a large percentage of people with high blood pressure will become normal blood pressure patients. High salt intake via increase in blood pressure leads to kidney damage over a period of time and kidney failure. Consume less–anything which is artificially white in feature–white sugar, white maida and white rice.

Most people who have presence of high salt in their body will have characteristic feature of liking to both ice cold as well as boiling beverages.

5 tips to reduce salt in your diet

  1. Make reading food labels a habit. Sodium content is always listed on food labels. Sodium content can vary from brand to brand, so compare and choose the lowest sodium product. Certain foods don’t taste particularly salty but are actually high in sodium, such as cottage cheese, so it’s critical to check labels.
  2. Stick to fresh meats, fruits and vegetables rather than their packaged counterparts, which tend to be higher in sodium.
  3. Avoid spices and seasonings that contain added sodium, for example garlic salt. Choose garlic powder instead.
  4. Many restaurants list the sodium content of their products on their websites, so do your homework before dining out. Also, you can request that your food be prepared without any added salt.
  5. Try to spread your sodium intake out throughout the day; it’s easier on your kidneys than eating lots of salt all at once.

Its wrong to say eat less fat; the real message should be eat more fresh fruits and vegetables.

White advocating low–fat diets it is easier for patients to understand advice given in terms of foods e.g, “eat more fresh fruit” rather than nutrients e.g, “reduce your intake of fat to less than 30 percent of your total energy intake”.

The message to reduce fat has been translated by food manufacturers and consumers into a potentially harmful set of food choices.

Instead of replacing high–fat foods with naturally low–fat foods with other benefits, such as fruits, vegetables, legumes, and whole grain foods, consumers have often increased their consumption of low–fat or “fat–free” varieties of naturally high–fat foods, such as fat–free snack or junk foods.

The result is an increase in refined carbohydrates which lower good HDL–cholesterol concentrations with a possible increase in the incidence of type 2 diabetes and obesity, and failure to gain the benefits of more.
