355 ml of pop may lead to 355 health issues

In her column, Dr. Elena Krasnov answers a query on soft drinks from a writer that signs herself Pop-Aholic.

She writes, "I have tried to cut down because many people have told me it isn't good for me, but I become so agitated and tired if I don't have it.

"Am I really harming my body?

"If so, what else can I drink to give me the same type of energy?"

In her reply, Dr. Krasnov gives some examples of the dangers of soft drinks,
  • Soft drinks steal water from the body. To replace the water stolen by soft drinks, you need to drink 8-12 glasses of water for every one glass of soft drinks that you consume!
  • Soft drinks never quench your thirst, certainly not your body's need for water. Constantly denying your body an adequate amount can lead to chronic cellular dehydration, a condition that weakens your body at the cellular level. This, in turn, can lead to a weakened immune system.
  • The elevated levels of phosphates in soft drinks leach vital minerals from your body. Soft drinks are made with purified water that also leach vital minerals from your body. A severe lack of minerals can lead to heart disease (lack of magnesium), osteoporosis (lack of calcium) and many other diseases.
  • Soft drinks can remove rust from a car bumper or other metal surfaces. Imagine what it's doing to your digestive tract as well as the rest of your body.

Our bodies need water. The tap water in our homes isn't always the best thing for us either. Chemicals, viruses and other unwanted contaminents are present. An excellent water purifier is available. The system features UV light to destroy microorganisms and a patented carbon-block filter to reduce more than 140 potential health-effect contaminants.

For the active person, replacing lost fluids and electrolytes is vital. New XS Power Nutrition Sports Drink is scientifically formulated to help rehydrate your body before, during, and after exercise. A balance of the electrolytes, sodium and potassium, helps to replace those you sweat away during prolonged physical activity, making it easier to maintain peak performance. All without the dangers presented by traditional soft drinks.

As Dr. Krasnov says, "You are what you drink"

Stay healthy!

QHEALTHBEAUTY - Let the Weight Loss Begin!

Nutritional support for balanced weight and good health – including protein bars, meal replacements bars and shakes, and other weight- loss tools, support products, and services

The Trim Body System Kit is the way to get started on a weight loss program. It is simple and complete. There is great support available from the web site. Including diet tips, recipes, fitness options, 31 days of weight loss motivation, downloadable personal journal, free online progress tracking and a tour.

The kit contains a binder to hold the print materials, which include the Quick Start Guide, a 12-page booklet that introduces you to the plan. It also includes Meal Plan Cards that step you through every meal for 30 days, including shopping tips, meal preparation, supplements, and recipes. Eighteen detailed, full-colour Recipe Cards show you how to fix simple, healthy meals, fast. And a week's worth of 10-minute exercises are described on the Fitness Cards, so you can take your exercise plan with you, wherever you go.

Also, a 2-DVD set that features a physician discussing the health effects of being overweight, a fitness expert who introduces you to and coaches you through all the exercises in the 4-3-2-1 Body Training System, and an introduction to the Protein Plus Diet.

The products included in the kit are:

  • The benefits of isothiocyanates are currently being studied at the National Cancer Institute and University of Manitoba, among other institutions.
  • Previously, people were left with the choice of eating copious amounts of broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower, or trying to stomach loads of raw horseradish. Now, thanks to MEKIWIN, you can get the benefits of horseradish in a high-quality capsule form.
  • Just one MEKIWIN Horseradish capsule has the isothiocyanate content of 35-40 g of raw horseradish or 100-200 g of broccoli, cauliflower, or cabbage - a much more palatable option, no matter how much you love horseradish.

  • No artificial flavours, colours or preservatives added
  • For on-the-go energy or between meal cravings
  • Our bodies don’t store excess protein, even though it is essential for maintaining a healthy body, that is why many nutritionists recommend eating lean protein at every meal

Trim Advantage Vanilla Meal Replacement Shake Mix

  • Use this two or three times a day in replacement of a regular meal

Trim Advantage Shaker Cup
