Food Myths of 2013


There are many confusing food myths out there today!

  • Colon cleansing rids the body of toxins.  The body cleanses itself daily  through the liver, kidneys, colon and sweat
  • More than 1000 mg of calcium  daily increases the risk of heart disease by hardening and blocking the arteries
  • Not true if this comes from calcium rich foods such as milk, yogourt and fortified soy beverages. Avoid only taking supplements
  • Soy causes breast cancer. Estrogen from soy is weaker than human estrogen in the body and there is less stimulation of breast cancer with soy in the diet
  • Drink 8 cups of water daily.  This depends on your activity level, environment and general health.  No hard rule
  • Eating after 7 pm increases weight gain – if you eat too much during any part of the day you’ll gain weight
