World Health Day 2015

 World Health Day 2015 


The theme for World Health Day 2015 is food safety

As our food supply becomes increasingly globalized, the need to strengthen food safety systems in and between all countries is becoming more and more evident. That is why the WHO is promoting efforts to improve food safety, from farm to plate (and everywhere in between) on World Health Day, 7 April 2015.
Unsafe food can lead to food borne and water borne diarrhoeal diseases. Also Chemical or toxin contamination can cause acute poisoning or chronic diseases like cancer.
WHO helps countries prevent, detect and respond to foodborne disease outbreaks. Together with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), WHO alerts countries to food safety emergencies through an international information network.

Five keys to safer food

Food safety is a shared responsibility. It is important to work all along the food production chain – from farmers and manufacturers to vendors and consumers.
WHO’s Five keys to safer food offer practical guidance to vendors and consumers for handling and preparing food:
Check quality of food ingredients while purchasing Check use-by dates and labels of packed food
  • Key 1: Keep clean raw fruits and veges and keep the working surfaces clean.
  • Key 2: Separate raw and cooked food
  • Key 3: Cook food thoroughly reheat leftovers thoroughly so that they are steaming
  • Key 4: Keep food at safe temperatures. Refrigerate food promptly and properly.Refrigerate cooked food within 2 hours of preparation
  • Key 5: Use safe water and raw materials.
World Health Day 2015 is an opportunity to alert people working in different government sectors, farmers, manufacturers, retailers, health practitioners – as well as consumers – about the importance of food safety, and the part each can play in ensuring that everyone can feel confident that the food on their plate is safe to eat.

Green antioxidant rich drink

 Green antioxidant rich drink
chetana greendrink

This consist of Baby spinach ,tulsi,ajwain leaves from kitchen garden,  guava and dash of lemon juice…..go green.

Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), manganese, folate, magnesium,  potassium, and vitamin C.
Tulsi holy Indian plant has many benefits like it has anti-bacterial and anti-biotic properties hence treats cold, cough fever and also increases immunity.
Ajwain leaves help in digestion and acidity
Guava and lemon will give vitamin C which again is a powerful antioxidant.

Green foods get their color from a pigment called chlorophyll,they high amounts of Vitamin K,lutein and zeaxanthin, phytochemicals such as indoles and glucosinolates and potassium.

Why you should eat more:
Chlorophyll, a natural blood purifier supports the liver and kidneys in the elimination of toxins. Vitamin K is necessary for blood clotting and building strong bones.Lutein and zeaxanthin can filter out harmful light that damages the eyes.

A daily serving of this can slash your chances of having a heart attack, very good for digestion, in both high and low BP.

Energy drink or caffeine drink

The truth about energy drink

Do u think……Drinking energy drinks is the best way to get energized…..think again
No one needs an energy drink. Energy drinks might give a feel of short burst of energy, but it doesn’t last.
Energy drinks usually contain lots of sugar; in fact, one energy drink can have up to 14 teaspoons of sugar!...which means around 280calories n just empty calories n nothing else….
Most energy drinks have caffeine, and too much caffeine may cause unwanted side effects such as rapid heartbeat and insomnia.
Just give a thought before picking up a can…..for a kick.
The best way to get energized is to eat healthy, be active, stay hydrated and get enough sleep.
