High Cooking Temperatures Linked To Inflammation-Related Diseases
(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 13, 2015 ) Orlando, Florida -- More people around the world are shifting to healthier food and lifestyle choices. Fruits and vegetables are increasingly preferred to processed food items, as they contain more vitamins and minerals, and are generally chemical-free. However, it seems that practicing healthy food choices is not enough to increase protection against a wide variety of diseases.
According to research, using high temperatures when cooking has been associated with an increased risk for inflammation-related diseases. Food items, such as meat products that are cooked in high temperatures, are believed to increase the risk for chronic diseases associated with inflammation.
"Nutritionists and health experts have long been recommending increased intake of healthy foods such as fruits and vegetables. However, they also stress the importance of using healthy cooking methods," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan. "Some even suggest that raw or half-cooked items could be healthier."
In a study conducted by the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, it was found that grilling or frying food at high temperatures can result in the production of compounds that encourage inflammation in the body. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammation-related diseases are examples of conditions that could develop when foods cooked in high temperatures are regularly consumed.
If the research is validated, there may be a myriad of diseases that could potentially be prevented simply by eating the right food cooked at the right temperatures. According to many health experts, it is best to eat food items that don't require too much cooking, as they are usually healthier and less damaging.
Advanced Glycation End Products (AGEs) are compounds that are believed to play a major role in the development of inflammatory diseases. According to studies, these compounds are usually found in individuals with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. In other studies, it was found that AGEs were created in food items cooked in high temperatures. AGEs are absorbed by the body easily and are typically obtained from food items such as fried chicken and burgers.
Experts strongly suggest that intake of fried, microwave, grilled and broiled meat should be reduced. It is also best to increase intake of fruits and vegetables as these healthy food items require less cooking, are naturally low in AGEs and can help reduce the risk for certain diseases.
While making wiser food choices is imperative to achieve optimum health, it is also important to practice healthy food preparation. In addition to consuming a healthy diet, some experts also suggest the use of natural supplements that could help reduce inflammation in the body (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/).
