Kimchi Packs Proven Health Benefits

Koreans have been enjoying salted and fermented vegetables known as kimchi for about 2000 years.  It’s typically served with steamed rice at every Korean meal.  But this spicy dish is much more than a condiment. 

Researchers in Korea just published a comprehensive review of the health benefits of kimchi as a probiotic.  In it they cite 130 studies attesting to the amazing healing properties of this humble food. 

Probiotics are the good bacteria populating the gut.  The human gut contains over 400 strains of bacteria and the mix of different strains in each person is very individual.

Among other things, probiotics:

12 Facts About Microwaves That Should Forever Terminate Their Use

Are microwaves a benign bastion of convenience or a sinister contributor to biological and nutritional damage? A growing percentage of people are now heeding the advice of holistic health experts and disposing of their microwaves due to the dangers of microwaved food. Regardless of where you stand, humans are the only animals on the planet who destroy the nutritional value of their food before eating it, and the use of microwaves is no exception. http://j.mp/1nexUha

The Happiest State Has One Of The Highest Poverty Levels and One Of The Lowest Household Incomes In The Nation

There are persistent differences in self-reported subjective well-being across U.S. metropolitan areas, and residents of declining cities appear less happy than other Americans. Newer residents of these cities appear to be as unhappy as longer term residents, and yet some people continue to move to these areas. While the historical data on happiness are limited, the available facts suggest that cities that are now declining were also unhappy in their more prosperous past. According to a working paper from researchers at Harvard University and the University of British Columbia, the five happiest cities in the U.S. all happen to be located in one state, which also ranks as the happiest state. http://j.mp/1neq8UA

Apigenin highly upregulated the expression of cytokine genes and induced apoptosis in human pancreatic cancer cells.

PMID:  Mol Nutr Food Res. 2013 Dec ;57(12):2112-27. Epub 2013 Aug 14. PMID: 23943362 Abstract Title:  Flavonoid apigenin modified gene expression associated with inflammation and cancer and induced apoptosis in human pancreatic cancer cells through inhibition of GSK-3β/NF-κB signaling cascade. Abstract:  SCOPE: The objective was to examine the inhibitory effects of citrus fruit bioactive compounds on BxPC-3 and PANC-1 human pancreatic cancer cells, focusing on the antiproliferative mechanism of action of the flavonoid apigenin related to the glycogen synthase kinase-3β/nuclear factor kappa B signaling pathway.METHODS AND RESULTS: Flavonoids, limonoids, phenolic acids, and ascorbic acid were tested for cytotoxic effects on BxPC-3 and PANC-1 cells; apigenin was the most potent (IC50 = 23 and 12μM for 24 and 48 h for BxPC-3 and IC50 = 71 and 41 μM for 24 and 48 h for PANC-1). Apigenin induced pancreatic cell death through inhibition of the glycogen synthase kinase-3β/nuclear factor kappa B signaling pathway. Apigenin arrested cell cycle at G2 /M phase (36 and 32% at 50 μM for BxPC-3 and PANC-1, respectively) with concomitant decrease in the expression of cyclin B1. Apigenin activated the mitochondrial pathway of apoptosis (44 and 14% at 50 μM for BxPC-3 and PANC-1, respectively) and modified the expression of apoptotic proteins. Apigenin highly upregulated the expression of cytokine genes IL17F (114.2-fold), LTA (33.1-fold), IL17C (23.2-fold), IL17A (11.3-fold), and IFNB1 (8.9-fold) in BxPC-3 cells, which potentially contributed to the anticancer properties.CONCLUSION: Flavonoids have a protective role in pancreatic cancer tumorigenesis. http://j.mp/1nbHdP4
