Foods that protect your health
Cholesterol, cancer, Alzheimer's, depression ... Dr. Laurent Chevallier publishes "My food orders" Editions. Links that liberate. How to eat healthy and prevent diseases
It is about eating healthy as ready-to-wear. One fashion seems to chase the other. Remember, there was a time when fruits and vegetables were not recommended! Full of water, they seemed to have no nutritional value. It was in the United States in the 1930 years and at the time we did not yet calculate the levels of minerals and vitamins ... In the 1960 years, we had not succeeded his life or made a binge if we did not consume no meat for lunch and dinner. Today, nothing better and more chic than a vegetarian meal. Since the 1970 years, sugar and fat have descended into the underworld of dietetics as diabetes and cholesterol increased. In recent months, it is the effects of wine that heat up the spirits. And the milk! And the bio! Confusion sets in "Science advances by the overcoming of successive contradictions," says Jean-Pierre Poulain, professor of sociology at the University of Toulouse. But behind the apparent cacophony, there is today a consensus: fruits and vegetables, not too much alcohol, no nibbling. And physical exercise. "Nutrigenetics has surprises," warns the sociologist (1). We are not equal in front of food, because the machine is not regulated in the same way for all ... "

Doctors no longer designate only forbidden foods. They recommend some. With, at the top of the list, fruits and vegetables for their anticarcinogenic virtues. And many more: the inevitable David Servan-Schreiber is not for nothing in the explosion of sales of omega 3, turmeric, broccoli or green tea. Is the magic list exclusive and definitive? If the National Cancer Institute recommends these foods, it also insists on the indispensable diversification of food. Whoever feeds exclusively on garlic and cabbages would put his health at risk ... Without being curative, some foods are simply protective. It is now accepted that 30% of 100 000 new cancer cases reported in France each year could be avoided by modifying the content of its plate.
Health through food? It's not so magical. The food orders of the "Nouvel Observateur" guided by the nutritionist Laurent Chevallier will help you. You will learn to be wary of the effects of certain chemical components used and abused by the agri-food industry. "Too many additives on a label? Change your radius, "says Dr. Chevallier, the Languedoc hedonist who does not hate to open a good bottle. Health!

Do you remember the TV campaign on nutraceuticals?
The slogan should not please everyone ... It was nevertheless a slogan full of common sense: "So that our food becomes our first medicine" ... I know more of who it was probably Danone ...
I will try to find the pub in question!
Be careful not to confuse the foods in this file with these kinds of "food supplements" based on (waste) dairy products ... whose effect is mainly placebo ...
The campaign I'm talking about was good before this kind of products ... whose packaging is also no longer anti-econological ...
