I'm wondering what the common nutritional deficiencies are for someone who regularly uses tobacco. While I did see a number of threads about detoxing or diets that can support someone with quitting tobacco, what are some things that are good for a person to eat or be mindful of if they do not plan to quit at all?

The answers/advice to this question might be the same as the answers/advice for people who are trying to detox/quit -- I just wasn't sure if there was a difference between supporting someone who is a current user vs. trying to help them wean off.

Nutrition Talk / Re: BPA in the food processor bowl
« Last post by andrew08 on March 19, 2019, 11:01:26 AM »
Hello wise community,
I just got a brand "new" vintage food processor from the '80.
Do you think the plastic bowl contains BPA and how bad it would be to use it.
Any thoughts?

Bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical used to harden plastic, is found in a number of consumer products, including hard plastic drinking containers and the linings of infant formula and food cans. In animal studies, BPA imitates effects of estrogen. There is controversy about whether animal studies are relevant to humans. Some scientists and consumers suggest reducing exposure to BPA.
Nutrition Talk / water filtration system -- how to choose?
« Last post by lorifebbo on March 14, 2019, 07:06:17 PM »
Hi fellow students,

I'm researching water filters and am reading through the EWG site. 

A friend recommended a system through a company called Radiant Life.  Another source suggested CWR Environmental.  I talked to reps from both companies, and I'm still not sure  what to think.   Neither has NSF certification for their systems, although Radiant Life uses all NSF certified parts from other certified companies.  Both companies claim their products meet the guidelines, but certification itself (the testing) is expensive.

I can't tackle a whole house water filtration system right now but will start with a water filter installed under the sink that will filter hot and cold drinking water at a dedicated tap.   Our plumber is NOT experienced with these systems, so I have a number of questions.   

Can anyone shed light on which of these features is essential/most important in a water filter?  Radiant Life advertises a 14 stage water filter that: 

Alkaline Rebalances

Is it necessary to have the water in the house tested before buying the filter?  I researched our municipal water supply and it meets/exceeds Federal standards, but it still contains a number of contaminants.  I haven't tested the water in the house (the plumbing will be all new -- street to house and within the house, because the house is currently under construction.)

Thank you for your advice and guidance, I appreciate it.
Recipe Exchange / Liver-Help Salad
« Last post by sagesherlock on March 10, 2019, 02:28:59 PM »
I haven't always been a huge fan of salads. I chew alot as it is and typically whenever I eat a salad I find it takes me an hour to finish or feel full! Thats too long for me. This salad I've been making lately has lots of meaty elements to it (while containing no meat) so I feel full and its very fun to chew. It contains many elements that benefit your liver, as well as your brain because of all the anti-oxidants.

The recipe is loose because I don't measure as I go so my measurements aren't as exact as they could be but here we go

~equal parts arugula, spinach, and mixed greens
~1/2 c radicchio
~1/2 c red beets that have been shredded
~1/2 c kalamata olives diced
~1/2 c  artichoke hearts
~1/4 c raw red onions
~1/4 c hemp seeds
~drizzle of olive oil
~splash of apple cider vinegar

I enjoy this salad because of it's pungency and because of how fun it is to chew. It has lots of meaty/slimy elements from the olives and artichoke hearts and some crunchy bits from the beets, radicchio, onions and hemp seeds. The bitterness stimulates bile secretion and artichokes are my favorite food for the liver.

Hope you enjoy!

Hello Damian,

There does seem to be quite a variety of meal delivery services available these days. I used to have my own meal prep/delivery company so am pretty familiar with the concept. As far as the mainstream marketed ones go, I have never personally tried one. I have heard from multiple people that Hello Fresh was the favorite. This particular one is a 'cook it yourself' approach, in which you choose what recipes you like, how many meals you want, and they send pre portioned ingredients along with a detailed recipe.  I believe Blue Apron has this same model. If cooking isn't your thing or you're searching for fully prepared meals, my suggestion is to be specific about what type of food and quality you want. That way you can narrow your search and find something local. The prices can range from $12 per meal to $45 and up, from what I've seen as well as how I operated myself. I hope this was helpful and I would love to know what direction you go.
Nutrition Talk / "Organifi"
« Last post by ronaldmikos on March 08, 2019, 07:11:25 AM »
Howdy folks! So I have been taking this green juice supplement blend called "organifi" for the past couple of moths now. I take it when Im in a rush in the morning or simply feeling under the weather (hungover) Im a fan of it because of its packed with superfoods such as moringa, chlorella, spirulina and ashwaganda.

Heres a link to their website:

I was simply curious if anyone has heard of this supplement and wanted to pick your brains about this product. Looking forward to hearing what you all think!

In Strength,

Ron Mikos
Nutrition Talk / Dates

Are dates healthy/good for you? I have read conflicting information. Some say that dates are high in sugar and should be eaten in moderation, others say that dates help with energy levels, digestion, brain, and bone health. I would be interested to hear what you all think. Thanks!

Does anyone know of any good meal delivery services that they would recommend? I see advertisements like Hello Fresh, Splendid Spoon, and Daily Harvest that look decent. I am interested to hear about your experience with any of them.
