Ice cream

Ice cream is a food with low glycemic index. This means that sugar is released slowly from its composition, and the sensation of satiety after you eat an ice cream takes more than common in a situation with a high glycemic index food. For this reason, you’ll probably be less hungry after eating ice cream.

75 grams of ice cream contains only 114 calories, compared with a slice of cheese, which has 511 calories. In addition, ice cream is made from milk that contains more essential nutrients, and vitamins. A cup of milk represents 30% of the total recommended daily per person. Other nutrients that can be found in ice cream composition are: biotin, iodine, potassium, selenium, vitamins A, B12, D and K. Research suggests a possible link between milk consumption and decreased risk of hypertension, coronary artery disease, colorectal cancer. Interestingly, in the fifth century BC Greeks sold snow cones with fruit and honey in the markets of Athens.


Dirt is back in vogue. Remember the days when you were kids and play in garbage, time when you serve food with bare hands, without that they are individually wrapped. It seems that at that time you were healthier than modern day where the focus is on clean.

Childhood exposure to bacteria, viruses and parasites decreases the probability of illness in contact with dirt. Research has shown that children who grow up with a dog at home are less likely to suffer from allergies and that regular social interaction can reduce the risk of leukemia by 30%. Do not ignore these statistics: thrown up the antibacterial products and get dirty! Interestingly, there are 10 times more bacterial cells in the body that the number of human cells. Most of them are harmless.


Unanimously stress is considered a bad thing, but what most people do not know is that a reasonable level of stress contributes to preservation of health. In low doses, stress helps stimulate the immune system. In the first stage of stress (in which a reaction such as fight or flight) the body produces cortisol, a hormone that helps fight stress and offers many benefits to the body.

Stress can give a sense of accomplishment, a condition called eustress or positive stress. Interestingly, the term mental stress and its properties were not known before 1950. By this time it only refers to difficulties or constraints.


Coffee is not only tasty, is an easy stimulant that has multiple medical uses. Caffeine contains a muscle relaxant that is beneficial for people with bronchial disorders, which can alleviate asthma symptoms. In addition, caffeine releases a series of fatty acids into the bloodstream which serve as fuel for muscles.

It seems that the only serious adverse effect resulting from excessive consumption of caffeine is a shortage of pounds – a danger if you suffer from anorexia. Caffeine should be avoided by people with fecal incontinence as anal sphincter muscles weaken. Caffeine can be toxic to animals, especially for dogs, horses and parrots. It has a more important effect on spiders than humans.

Red wine

Red wine contains a number of chemicals called polyphenols (once called vitamin P), which has been shown to provide various health benefits. They reduce risk of heart disease and cancer. It turned out that wine is an effective antibacterial agent to fight streptococcus (found most often in people’s mouth), which can help reduce infections.

Some varieties are more healthy wine: Cabernet Sauvignon reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. In addition, wine is rich in antioxidants that play a huge role in maintaining the health of the human body. Wines that have the most positive effects are found in southern France and Sardinia region of Italy. Wine is a native of Israel, Georgia and Iran, before the year 6000 BC.


Following recent research that studied the role of chocolate on health, it seems that this can be considered a panacea, and in addition has a special taste. Dark chocolate improves overall health, stimulates the circulatory system function, brain, prevents cough, diarrhea, and is even an anticancer agent. As coffee, chocolate is toxic to animals.

As a tablet of chocolate is melted in the mouth, increase brain activity and heart rate are more intense than with a passionate kiss, and the effect lasts four times longer after cessation of activity. And regular consumption of small amounts of chocolate reduces cholesterol levels and risk of a heart attack.


Moderate drinking was associated with a reduced risk of head disease, stroke and mental decline. In addition, yeast (used in beer production) contains many nutrients (magnesium, selenium, potassium, phosphorus, biotin and vitamin B). This is why beer is called liquid bread. A recent Japanese study found that alcohol-free beer has strong anticancer properties. Contrary to popular belief, beer belly is not the result of consumption of beer, but rather the excessive consumption of food and lack of exercise.


Some of the therapeutic effects of nicotine or tobacco smokers are called smoker’s paradoxes. Smokers, for example, have rarely needed infusion after angioplasty, the risk of ulcerative colitis is lower and even slows the development of Kaposi’s sarcoma.

Surprising is the connection between smoking and reduce allergic asthma. There are reports according to which smokers have a significantly lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Nicotine is currently investigated as a treatment for ADHD and schizophrenia. Interestingly, smoking is an old practice of at least 5000 years.
