Cancer is when damaged cells grow and divide uncontrollably in the body. These cancer cells can then spread to other parts of the body. These cells are unhealthy and they take over normal cells, making it hard for our body to function normally. Cancer is a word used to refer to several different, but related diseases. Usually cancer is named by what organ it affects first. For example, if cancer is found first in the lungs, it is called lung cancer.

Blood pressure is the amount of force caused by blood as it pushes through the blood vessels in the body. This pressure is created by the pumping action of the heart. Blood vessels are like small tubes with blood constantly flowing through them. In order for blood to flow to all parts of the body from the heart, there has to be enough force behind the blood for it to be pushed all the way down to our toes and all the way up to our brain. This is our blood pressure.

But current obesity research indicates that too much body fat can negatively affect health.

Shaking Down on Salt
2/9/2018 (new)

 UK Authors: Sandra Bastin, Heather Norman-Burgdolf
 Departments: Dietetics and Human Nutrition, Family and Consumer Sciences
 Series: Food and Nutrition (FCS3 series)
 Tags:

The demand for convenience and a change in eating habits have contributed to the popularity of dining out. Busy schedules often force people to eat on the run. Take out, frozen foods, and home-delivered meals are habits characteristic of many Americans. Meals eaten away from home can potentially contribute excess calories, fat, and sodium while limiting the intake of calcium, dietary fiber, and vitamins A and C. Excess snacking from calorie-laden, low nutrient-dense foods can lead to consuming too much fat and sugar. The two trends of dining out more and an increased interest in health, fitness, and nutrition seem to be incompatible, but with careful planning, healthful eating can be achieved regardless of our busy lives.
