*** According to some, Rice is to be limited as sub dish rather than whole meals or main one. The reason for suggesting this is, it contain more sugar than sugar itself! But western people notably in N. America have quite a high incidence of Diabetes Type II but the incidence is comparatively much less than in Tamilnadu where the percentage of diabetics in the total population is highest in the world. And in the whole of Tamilnadu, Rice is consumed as a main food item!

When wheat or other fiber is eaten water consumption increases. This flushes the body well. Rice eating slows down water consumption which is not good for the kidneys in the long run. The human body is also NOT DESIGNED to digest meat in any form. The cave man ate meat raw because he did not have the facilities of cooking. Almost 95% American children have dental caries due to high candy intake. In India less than 50% children have dental caries. 

 

In urban area, where children consume more of soft drinks, is more predominant. Aerated water known as soft drinks like coke, Sprite, Fanta, Pepsi etc. all damage the teeth enamel and spoil the nephrons in the kidneys. There is NO tangible benefit in these drinks. True, these artificially flavored drinks also spoil the digestive system and makes one feel not so hungry to eat main foods. In the longer run,i it might even affect your eyesight and nerve system, if taken often.

 

Also avoid taking junk and fast food, would help your digestive systems. A brisk morning walk also increases digestive system which burns the fat and excessive sugar level in the blood.

 

Now, for Eye-care, a preventive course of action could save your eye sight and from blindness at a later age. Here are few simple but easy methods to prevent blindness in old age:

For persons over the age of 55, it is common to get color blindness, eye strains, less visionary and headache due to these disorders. To make good the deficiency of ageing, rely on four special nutrients to help reduce your risk of a common eye problem by up to 35 percent. Diets that contain ample amounts of vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene, and zinc are associated with a greatly reduced risk of age-related macular degeneration, (AMD) an eye disease that is common with aging and can lead to blindness. Good sources of these nutrients: fresh produce, nuts, fortified cereals, and supplements. 

Diet plays a role in many disease processes, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of blindness in people over the age of 55. A recent study of people in this age group proves, that those who reported the highest intake of vitamin C, vitamin E, beta carotene, and zinc were significantly less likely to develop AMD than those who had the lowest intake. Fill up on oranges, mangoes, lemon, guavas and strawberries for vitamin C. 

Fortified cereal are great sources for zinc. Almonds and peanut butter, or a supplement, can help boost your intake of vitamin E. Sweet potatoes, apricots, carrots and peaches are excellent sources of beta carotene. Other nutrients that appear to be beneficial for eye health include lutein and zeaxanthin. Like beta carotene, they are carotenoids found in various kinds of fruits and vegetables. Good sources of lutein include spinach, peas, and green bell peppers. Good sources of zeaxanthin include corn, spinach, orange bell peppers, and tangerines.
