As anyone who has over-indulged knows, there's a certain point where your stomach waves a warning flag to signal that's too full for comfort before it practically begs you to stop ingesting the sugary stuff. If this triggers bad memories from candy-engorging festivities around Halloween, we're sorry—that just means you've experienced it firsthand!Even nibbling on too much of a healthier "sweet" such as dark chocolate can leave you feeling lethargic and even a bit queasy. However, when consumed in moderation, dark chocolate is an excellent sweet treat to have on hand as it's loaded with healthy antioxidants. Now, new research is suggesting there's another candy on the block that's packing antioxidant properties.Caramel-lovers, rejoice! According to a new study published in the Journal of Functional Foods, caramel contains a promising number of antioxidants. Interestingly, research linked the antioxidant level to the color of the candy, meaning the richer the color (aka the greater the degree of caramelization) the more antioxidants it will have."The research states that the heating process that sugars undergo produce antioxidant compounds, like those found in whole plant foods," says Trista Best, MPH, RD, LD. "Antioxidants have been studied for years and used for centuries in the treatment of conditions and diseases related to free radical damage and toxins, otherwise known as oxidative stress."It's important that you take the findings of this study with a grain of salt, or should we say, a granule of sugar? In other words, researchers aren't suggesting you reach for a bag of caramel candies over a fruit salad, for example. However, it will likely prompt some exciting research in the future."Further studies will be conducted, but this is a promising result that a comfort food could help mitigate acute and chronic conditions," she adds. "If these findings continue it is likely that medicinal caramels will be researched next to make them healthier and possibly multifunctional in what all they deliver to the consumer."Nutritionist Lisa Richards adds, "This study has the potential to be a quite groundbreaking find in the area of health and the role of a sugar-laden food."But while you could soon be popping medicinal caramels instead of Werther's Original soft caramel candies, both Best and Richards emphasize that it's premature to consider caramel a healthy food right now."It is important to note that the caramels being looked at in this study are of a high quality and meet specific parameters, more so than those found on local grocery store shelves," Richards says. "At this point in the research process it is not safe to say that caramels are 'healthy' per se, but we can definitely look forward to further research."For more, be sure to check out The Classic Candy Bars That Are Terrible For You.
43 minutes agoCDC Now Says You Can Catch COVID This WayThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has just updated its take on the transmission of COVID-19 "to reflect current knowledge about SARS-CoV-2 transmission. Modes of SARS-CoV-2 transmission are now categorized as inhalation of virus, deposition of virus on exposed mucous membranes, and touching mucous membranes with soiled hands contaminated with virus." What does that mean in plain English? Read on for 7 key takeaways from the CDC's new guidance that could save your life—and to ensure your health and the health of others, don't miss these Sure Signs You Had COVID and Didn't Know It. 1 This is the Primary Way People Get COVID, the CDC Says "The principal mode by which people are infected with SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19) is through exposure to respiratory fluids carrying infectious virus," says the CDC. So how might this happen? "Exposure occurs in three principal ways," they say, "(1) inhalation of very fine respiratory droplets and aerosol particles, (2) deposition of respiratory droplets and particles on exposed mucous membranes in the mouth, nose, or eye by direct splashes and sprays, and (3) touching mucous membranes with hands that have been soiled either directly by virus-containing respiratory fluids or indirectly by touching surfaces with virus on them." Keep reading to see where the virus can get you. 2 The Virus Escapes From Someone Else and Can Remain Suspended in Air For Hours "People release respiratory fluids during exhalation (e.g., quiet breathing, speaking, singing, exercise, coughing, sneezing) in the form of droplets across a spectrum of sizes. These droplets carry virus and transmit infection," says the CDC. "The largest droplets settle out of the air rapidly, within seconds to minutes. The smallest very fine droplets, and aerosol particles formed when these fine droplets rapidly dry, are small enough that they can remain suspended in the air for minutes to hours." 3 You Can Get COVID From Inhaling "Inhalation of air carrying very small fine droplets and aerosol particles that contain infectious virus. Risk of transmission is greatest within three to six feet of an infectious source where the concentration of these very fine droplets and particles is greatest," says the CDC. 4 You Can Get COVID From Splashes "Deposition of virus carried in exhaled droplets and particles onto exposed mucous membranes (i.e., 'splashes and sprays', such as being coughed on). Risk of transmission is likewise greatest close to an infectious source where the concentration of these exhaled droplets and particles is greatest," says the CDC. 5 You Can Get COVID By Touch "Touching mucous membranes with hands soiled by exhaled respiratory fluids containing virus or from touching inanimate surfaces contaminated with virus," says the CDC.RELATED: Signs You're Getting One of the "Most Deadly" Cancers 6 The Virus Can Be Spread From More Than Six Feet Away "With increasing distance from the source, the role of inhalation likewise increases," says the CDC. "Although infections through inhalation at distances greater than six feet from an infectious source are less likely than at closer distances, the phenomenon has been repeatedly documented under certain preventable circumstances. These transmission events have involved the presence of an infectious person exhaling virus indoors for an extended time (more than 15 minutes and in some cases hours) leading to virus concentrations in the air space sufficient to transmit infections to people more than 6 feet away, and in some cases to people who have passed through that space soon after the infectious person left. Per published reports, factors that increase the risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection under these circumstances include:Enclosed spaces with inadequate ventilation or air handling within which the concentration of exhaled respiratory fluids, especially very fine droplets and aerosol particles, can build-up in the air space.Increased exhalation of respiratory fluids if the infectious person is engaged in physical exertion or raises their voice (e.g., exercising, shouting, singing).Prolonged exposure to these conditions, typically more than 15 minutes." 7 How to Stay Safe Given This New News "Although how we understand transmission occurs has shifted, the ways to prevent infection with this virus have not," says the CDC. "All prevention measures that CDC recommends remain effective for these forms of transmission." So follow the public health fundamentals and help end this pandemic, no matter where you live—get vaccinated ASAP, wear a face mask that fits snugly and is double layered, don't travel, social distance, avoid large crowds, practice good hand hygiene, and to protect your life and the lives of others, don't visit any of these 35 Places You're Most Likely to Catch COVID.
an hour agoThis Iconic NYC Restaurant Just Closed After 23 Years in BusinessThe lifestyle landscape of New York City has certainly changed over the past year, as one more major NYC restaurant closure proved this week. The good news is that while this marks the end of an era for diners in one Manhattan neighborhood, the most resilient NYC restaurants—like this one—are finding intriguing ways to start over.Renowned French-American chef Daniel Boulud opened Café Boulud in 1998 at the Surrey Hotel on 76th Street and Madison Avenue. Poised since then as a mainstay to the Upper East Side of Manhattan and a darling for local and national media coverage, Café Boulud has branded itself to deliver "the finesse of traditional French cuisine with the warm hospitality of a neighborhood café," as their website reads. (Prior to Café Boulud's opening in the location, Boulud's flagship restaurant, Daniel, occupied the space before moving half a mile south to 65th Street.)RELATED: The Saddest Restaurant Closures in Your StateHowever, this week news broke that Café Boulud will be closing in its current location, as a new hotel group is taking over the Surrey Hotel… and it sounds like their vision differed from Boulud's. "The new owners wanted to take the restaurant in a direction that didn't suit me," Boulud has been quoted saying about the matter. While it sounds like the chef is navigating the transition with some degree of grace, it's likely not a breezy change. After he'd occupied the current space for a decade, in 2009 Boulud tapped an artist from Paris and a New York architect to tailor the restaurant to have a very precise vibe.So while it would be tough for any business owner to leave a space so many patrons have looked to (and with a Miami-based Italian restaurant rumored to be taking its place), word has it Boulud isn't looking to shutter Café Boulud for good. He's said to be seeking out another Upper East Side location to reopen Café Boulud.Meanwhile, interestingly, Boulud and his team made the best of pandemic struggles for customers and Boulud's employees when they introduced Daniel Boulud Kitchen, a pickup and delivery concept that offers "a weekly-changing menu of contemporary French classics prepared in the acclaimed DANIEL kitchen." They say a portion of all sales benefits Boulud's staff in the wake of business dampened by COVID-19.In the meantime, hopefully New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's tourism vaccine hopes and the September reopening of Broadway that was announced this week will help many New York restaurants turn the corner this summer.If you're catching up on the week's trending food news, check out This Is the Country That Drinks the Most Wine, Data Says. headtopics.comRead more: Yahoo Singapore »
McDonald's BTS Meal Sells Out In 5 Mins; No BTS Logo Paper Bag
Minus the kids, look at Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt. They stay longer together when they aren't married. The moment they marry, still end up in divorce. So what's the point of marriage ? No marriage = less couple trouble. Just be pure friends. Not everyone needs intimacy. Being cancer-stricken and begging CPF Board to repay overdue debt; that which in any case cannot be done as the money had been commingled and funneled to private entity Temasek Holdings for Ho Ching to wager on unviable, untenable and ultimately, invariably doomed gambles
The truth is there are no relationship experts. Don't marry in the 1st place then no issues. Just be pure platonic friends. No commitments. Even if the other party is rich, don't be tempted either as rich people also have their big family problems. There will always be a gap between the rich & the poor. Inequality bites.
