Groups of Four People Drinking Milk Required

dink of milkSo many dairy products it offers, which undoubtedly led to confusion when you are going to choose. In fact, there are groups that are forced to drink milk.

Advertising bombards consumers with the lure of thousands of grain mill products. Many potential consumers who ultimately feel the need to eat or buy something because of the ad promises, including milk. Ida M Ruslita Amir Kess, nutritionists of the Association of Indonesian nutrition experts (Persagi) confirmed four critical groups (those who required) consume milk, ie children, pregnant women, nursing mothers and elderly (elderly).

"Children should drink milk in order to support their growth period, pregnant women to maintain the health of the fetus and prepare personnel for childbirth, breastfeeding mothers to maintain the quality of milk production and the elderly to ensure their quality of life taking into account the power of taste elderly began to decline, the problem of dementia or senility, etc, "he said at the launch of SKM Frisian Flag of Gold in the F-Cone FX Mall Jakarta, Wednesday (07/14/2010).

Out of these four groups, the milk is positioned as a nutritional source of support or replacement of foods of animal origin such as eggs, meat, fish, chicken, and others. If the intake of other foods karbhohidrat, fats, vitamins, minerals, etc-you or your child must be sufficient, then the consumption of milk can be eliminated.

"Children sometimes decreased appetite, but you need a balanced nutrition for growth, this is where the importance of drinking milk as a supplement of calories and proteins," said Ida.

Proteins, Ida added, necessary as "Traffic police or a regulatory body that maintain the body's metabolism and organ systems are working well. Young children require more protein intake of approximately 2 grams per kilogram of body weight than adults, approximately 1 g / kg body weight. Therefore, if you want to buy some milk, must take into account the labels on the containers, especially in protein content.

If your child does not want to consume the milk, the mother of Ida suggested more creative process in a variety of milk your baby's favorite foods, like adding milk ice cream, puddings, etc.

"Mother is expected to be creative, using a variety of available food sources economically. Balanced diet consisting of different types of food and milk rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals, it helps to meet the nutritional adequacy," he added .

Meanwhile, Ida tells us that more women than men need milk.

"You need someone dependent recycling nutrients or life cycle. The women will play, preparation for childbirth and menstruation, breastfeeding, and so on. The body needs to replace the calories that can be obtained from milk. Pregnant women, for example, requires an additional 300 grams of calories than non-pregnant people ideally need a 2200 gram, "said Ida.


Multivitamin and Mineral Supplement Keep Your Immune System

multivitaminCONDITIONS modern life of today's increasingly demanding society to pay attention to your health and body condition. Working environment in the office air conditioning and artificial looks clean does not mean the absence of exposure to free radicals. In addition, high levels of stress, air pollution and dietary habits and unhealthy lifestyles lead to a decline in the immune system (immune) from the body.

Foods, especially fruits and vegetables are sources of antioxidants that work to stabilize free radicals. While vitamin and mineral function helps work different types of enzymes that also function as antioxidants.

Based on data from the Organization for Food and Agriculture Organization / World Health Organization in 1992, working women are a group of women of childbearing age are less prone to problems of micronutrients. Besides being caused by stress, either environmental stress or workload, women also tend to menstruate regularly and dieting.

Vocation and ignorance also makes humans less frequently noted the need for nutrients, so without realizing it, a marked decrease in the interruption of immune health. Therefore, in order to maintain health and activities of daily uninterrupted, to supplement the nutritional needs that can not be met from food, many women choose to consume a multivitamin and mineral supplement.

Seeing these conditions, PT Bayer Indonesia Consumer Care division Institut Pertanian in Bogor (IPB), Faculty of Human Ecology announced the results of a study titled "The Influence of Multi Vitamin-Mineral Supplementation oxidant state is shown to increase Redoxon Fortimun 47% the level of superoxide dismutase (SOD) that neutralize free radicals in the body.

The results are a matter of debate at the symposium on "Allergy and Clinical Immunology in updating the daily practice", organized by the Jakarta Allergy and Clinical Immunology Network (JACIN) in Bogor on 26-27 June 2010.

research materials discussed in the session "The role of vitamins in the immune system," presented in two parts, namely, "The role of vitamins and minerals in the development of immunity" by the Forester and Dr. Fitrah Ernawati Dr. MSc, and "stop the formation of vitamin Atheroschlerosis. Between Facts and Myths" by Dr. Dr. Joko Maryon SpJP PHASE fiha SPPD.

In connection with the support of PT Bayer Indonesia's Consumer Care Division, David M Budi, General Manager of Bayer HealthCare Consumer Care PT Bayer Indonesia said, "This is a real form of Bayer HealthCare's commitment to Service improvement health condition of the community. We can improve the quality of human life from improving the quality of healthcare. Through this research, we expect the public to understand the important role of vitamins in the system immune. "

The study involved 150 people working woman working in a garment factory in the area of Bogor. They were selected because the factory worker is the fertile age group at risk of micronutrient deficiencies and exposure to oxidative stress, due to working in confined spaces of the dough in a standing position continuously.

Oxidative stress occurs when there is an imbalance between oxidants and antioxidants in the body. Research over 70 days to divide the sample into two main groups, namely those who were given a multivitamin supplement and a placebo.

The results of research conducted by Dr. Ernawati Fitrah MSc, a researcher at the Center for Nutrition and Food Bogor, RI, Ministry of Health, Dr. Forester, Professor, Department of Community Nutrition, Faculty of Human Ecology, IPB Dr. Hadi Riyadi MS, Professor, Department of Community Nutrition, Faculty of Human Ecology, IPB Dr. Wayan Wibawan IT MS, Professor, Department of Community Nutrition, Faculty of Human Ecology, IPB and Prof . Muhilal PhD, former member of the National Research Council showed that administration of a multi vitamin-mineral in women can increase levels of vitamin E, and levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and also significantly increase levels of vitamin A and vitamin C.

Vitamin E is an antioxidant that can break the chain of free radicals through various processes. Vitamin C is needed to help the regeneration of vitamin D that can be played at the end of the chain of free radicals.

Meanwhile, superoxide dismutase (SOD) is an enzyme that works to repair cells and reduce cell damage caused by superoxide free radicals contained in the body.

Dr. Forester, Chairman of the Research Team of the IPB, explains, "superoxide dismutase (SOD), the dual role of antioxidants in the body and neutralize free radicals that can cause wrinkles and changes in body cells. Our results show that administration of a multivitamin mineral are better able to protect itself from free radicals shown by the lowest percentage of samples with higher levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD) below normal compared to placebo administration. To this end , multiple micronutrient supplementation is recommended to improve nutrient antioxidant status of working women who are at risk of exposure to oxidative stress. "

The results showed that Redoxon Fortimun multivitamin and minerals it contains, showed increased levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD). Elevated levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD) neutralizes free radicals in the body while high doses of vitamin C needed to create a natural antioxidant.

Meanwhile, in another session that raised the role of vitamins in the development of atherosclerosis, Dr. Djoko Maryon dr SPPD SpJP fiha PHASE explains: "Vitamins and minerals are antioxidants that may improve cellular immunity. Several studies Clinical trials have shown that vitamin and mineral supplements may prevent atherosclerosis and reduce the number of aggressive acute coronary events, restenosis in angioplasty, and stroke cases.


Stay Fit Face Extreme Weather

The heat and erratic rains cause the immune system weakens. It takes special care to prevent disease in the middle of these extreme weather conditions.

Sunny summer morning, not long after, it was raining. Weather extremes, so sebuatan these uncertain climate. This is one of the impacts of global warming (global warming). Not only do people feel uncomfortable with the weather difficult to guess this, these extreme weather conditions also provides a broad impact, serious and diverse. One is the impact on health.

Rise and fall of global temperatures could lead to the emergence of some diseases. Not only children, the elderly were not spared from the threat of an attack of some diseases. Professors of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Dr. Peter Staats, said that when the seasons change, the body adapt to cope with climate changes in dry season to rainy season. The original dry hot air and, suddenly becomes cold and damp. "These conditions cause discomfort that makes the body susceptible to disease," he said.

According to Dr. Peter Staats, a general practitioner in the Omni International Hospital in Tangerang Alam Sutera, Dr. Grace Hilz, said that usually the season of transition or change of weather, which weaken the immune system so that some diseases can arise.

"Some of the commonly occurring diseases, such as infection by viruses of influenza, diarrhea, typhoid fever, and several other common infections such as strep throat and the other," said Grace.

Influenza, commonly known as flu, is no longer a disease of the community. Some people even experience flu season not only at the end. Influenza caused by a virus that attacks the human immune system. This virus can infect humans go through cough and sputter. Although harmless, the flu often interfere with daily activities, as someone who often feel lethargic flu, colds, and dizziness, sometimes accompanied by cough. However, with adequate rest, the flu usually heals by itself. Except for patients with severe flu, should see a doctor immediately. In the case of the transmission, it is not all that many diseases occur when infectious turnover this season.

Grace explains, infectious diseases depends on whether or not a cause. When the cause of viruses and bacteria, could be contagious. Since the virus was highly infectious, can be through droplet infection (such as sneezing, coughing, etc.) However, if the disease caused by bacteria, usually entering through food or by direct contact.

Any diarrheal illness often occurs during extreme weather like this. One reason is because the number of dust and dirt that have the potential to trigger the onset of diarrhea that is closely related to patterns of regular consumption of foods contaminated food and drink.

"The pain is experienced when these extreme weather conditions, because the power of a weakened body. The weather changes suddenly because the body temperature is changing dramatically," said the doctor, who also serves as the Omni International Hospital Manager Markomm Alam Sutera this.

Grace suggested, when extreme weather events that occur now, it is possible that additional health. Therefore, should boost the immune system, with a break, like getting enough sleep, stay and avoid a lot of smoke. Moreover, the consumption of nutritious foods to eat. If necessary, you can add a supplement if the food we eat to feel inadequate in terms of vitamins. Do not forget to eat enough vegetables and fruits.

Fluid intake also require attention. Keep your body does not dehydrate the body, which means taking no less, especially when the weather is very hot and dusty. "And that is also important to maintain good personal and environmental hygiene," suggested the doctor graduated from the Faculty of Medicine of the University YARSI Jakarta.

Try not to eat at random, began to feel the resistance when the body begins to interfere or declining. Especially for children, it would be better if the time to bring lunch to school, or for you never hurts to get supplies to the workplace.

In addition to the prevention of food intake is also important to exercise regularly. This exercise is necessary to increase the resistance. Principle, if the break is, the consumption of nutritious foods, exercise regularly, then our body's resistance increases so that not a disease easily.

"But we had better avoid contact when there is a close friend or relative suffering from diseases such as influenza, typhoid fever or diarrhea," he advised.
Do not forget to maintain hygiene and environmental agencies. Like hand-washing habits. Although trivial, was effective hand washing prevent us from diseases such as typhoid fever or diarrhea.


Two Successful Treatment of Cancer

cancer treatmentCANCER is a word that became the scourge of many people because it contains a recovery rate of less than 100 percent. This modern diseases can be cured with two conditions.

In fact, cancer is not a mild disease, but not without hope of cure. The primary purpose for the treatment of cancer is early detection. The earlier the detection and known, the faster treatment and greater chance of recovery.

"Successful cancer treatment depends on the stage where the patient started treatment. On stage 1-2, the possibility of recovery is 80-90 percent, while for phase 3-4, it all otherwise, "explained Prof. Dr. Soehartati Gondhowiardja, a specialist in radiation oncology clinical discussion" Radiation Therapy for Cancer "in the Department of Radiotherapy RSCM, Jakarta, on Tuesday (13/07/2010).

Terms of cancer treatment should read is multidisciplinary. Not only chemotherapy or surgery as is well known (even a whip), most cancer patients, but also include radiation therapy, pathology, radiology, therapy and support (medical rehabilitation, clinical nutrition, psychiatry).

For example, in the form of radiation treatment for cancer. Radiation done locally and systemically to affect the side effects, including appetite. For this reason, nutrition experts, among others, took part in penanangan cancer.

"Side effects may include dry mouth, nausea, difficult bowel movements, diarrhea, etc, depending on the drug administered. Therefore, before undergoing chemotherapy, for example, patients are given information about side effects and drug to reduce side effects, "said Dr. Sri Wuriyanti, RSCM clinical dietitian.

How to overcome or reduce complaints, said Dr. Lanka, is to provide alternative food options. For example, to the problems of dry mouth, patients are advised to consume milk or fruit juice.

"For your body to absorb vitamins and minerals with the principle of management is the volume a little but often. Then, look at the complete nutritional composition, including carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins, and so forth in each food intake "said Dr. Lanka.

Another important reason why a supportive therapy for cancer patients is important because in addition to the physical, human beings have many aspects in itself, spiritual covering social, emotional, cultural, and more.

"Patients will inevitably feel the effects of treatment, but also depends on how you see the disease. If there are patients who are expected to achieve an optimal recovery point, but because he is excited, then the recovery rate will take effect. That's why we (the team doctor RSCM) try to accompany the foreign aspects of cancer, "said Dr. Siti Annisa Nuhonni, medical rehabilitation specialists RSCM.

Unfortunately, Dr. Siti, most patients have advanced cancer therapy and support must also be more attentive. "If the baby is ready, why not put the process toward death? We all care for patients. For us, the patient is our focus," said Dr. Siti.

"Multidisciplinary treatment not only to cure cancer, but also makes the quality of life of patients is improving. The cancer can be overcome, but what if the second hand can not move or during treatment, nutrition continues to decline ? Hence the need for multidisciplinary treatment. However, the final decision is the choice of the patient. What is important, we communicate the information and the delivery of choice for patients, "said Professor Soehartati who is also Chief Department of Radiotherapy RSCM this.


The Consumption of Fiber For a Healthy Heart

fiberI love your heart healthy? Start now to change their eating patterns. Avoid fatty foods and foods rich in carbohydrates multiplied.

In fact, studies have shown, fibrous foods, especially fiber type betaglukan able to reduce bad cholesterol (low densy lipoprotein / LDL) levels. If low levels of LDL in the blood, cardiovascular health becomes more secure.

"Betaglukan fiber, can be found in processed grain products, known as oats or oatmeal. Like jelly oat fiber that can bind fat in the blood and threw it across the land," said a clinical nutrition specialist in Central Pertamina Hospital (RSPP), Dr. Fatma RD Kusuma.

Do not stop there, research conducted in the United States found that fiber from oats or wheat is soluble fiber may reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol without lowering HDL (good cholesterol).

"The glikemi oat fiber also contain low. Thus, oats are very good for diabetics because the level of blood sugar produced after eating very low," he said again.

High levels of LDL is the main cause of increased cases of heart disease. Although there is no faster drug therapy to lower LDL, but treatment with wheat cereal consumption is more healthy and no side effects, although it takes some time.

According to nutritionists and thick glasses, oatmeal is a good source of nutrition because they contain vitamin E, zinc, selenium, copper, iron and magnesium. "Rolled oats can be a good source of protein for the body. Our next task is to socialize the community," he said.

For maximum results, every day a person should consume 70 grams of oats. The amount is needed, because if it is excessive it is not possible. One thing that is no less important as lowering levels of blood cholesterol is by exercising regularly.

Cholesterol is particularly virulent, is blamed as a cause of coronary heart disease, because it makes blood vessels clogged and harden (atherosclerosis). As a result, blood flow is not smooth or covered. If the obstruction is the flow of blood to the heart, the place of coronary heart disease (CHD). If carried to the brain, a stroke occurs. It could also impede the flow of blood in the legs, causing the black.

Took note of coronary heart disease deserves attention, because even today still ranks first as a cause of human death. Based on data from the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2001, each year there are approximately 7.2 million deaths from coronary heart disease.

The process of blood vessel obstruction is happening faster when more people apply unhealthy lifestyles, such as frequently ate fast food, soft drinks or sweetened drinks too often, and not balanced with white water and rarely exercise.

Other sources of fiber than wheat is also found in avocado, grapes, apples, strawberries and oranges. Avocados contain glutathione and beneficial monounsaturated fatty acids to neutralize free radicals and destructive nature of the fat in the body.

In wine there, like the flavonoids quercetin and catechin serves to facilitate blood flow, preventing the oxidation of bad cholesterol and reduce plaque formation in blood vessels. "Vitamin C in the wine also can neutralize free radicals," he said again.

Whereas a lot of apple pectin contains the type of fiber helps to lower levels of beneficial blood cholesterol. Pectin binds cholesterol foods such as milk, meat and eggs as well as help to stay in the intestine.


Red Rice Lower Diabetes Risk

Based on research, the United States (U.S.), eating rice cereal or other seeds showed a lower risk of developing diabetes than those who eat white rice.

The team of researchers from Harvard School of Public Health and Brigham and Women `s Hospital to analyze approximately 200 000 adults aged 22 and found a fine white rice eating is associated with an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes type 2 is characterized by high levels of blood sugar that cause the body's inability to properly digest sugar and is often associated with obesity and poor nutrition.

These diseases can be controlled with diet and exercise, but probably still need the help of medication.

"In general, people should pay special attention and try your carb intake to replace refined carbohydrates such as white rice with a grain of wheat," said researcher Dr. Qi Sun told journalists, Reuters Health

U.S. dietary guidelines recommend at least half of the carbohydrates in the diet comes from wheat seeds.

More Americans are eating rice, Sun and his colleagues noted in their report published in Archives of Medicines.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, rice consumption increased by more than tripled since the 1930s.

However, the majority of rice consumed by Americans are soft white rice, which has been removed from fiber, vitamins and minerals during the purification process and more prone to blood sugar increases.

The researchers evaluated rice consumption and the risk of diabetes among 40 000 men and more than 157 000 women in these three long-term research.

In total, 10 507 of them suffering from type 2 diabetes.

Of the three studies, white rice consuming higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Researchers estimate that by replacing the white rice, which contributed one third of each day (50 grams) with brown rice can reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes up to 16 percent.

They further estimated by replacing white rice with whole grain oats may reduce the risk by 36 percent.

Dom showed they had adjusted the various factors that may affect the results and conclusions remain valid while noting the possibility of eating more brown rice as a sign of a healthy lifestyle.

"We are adjusting factors such as body fat, smoking, physical activity and other dietary factors, and there remains a great influence. This means that what we're seeing is not the result of other factors," said Sun.
