Jumbo Portions Lead to Overeating.
‘Helping people to avoid ‘overserving’ themselves or others with bigger portions of food or drink by reducing their size, availability and appeal in shops, restaurants and in the real home, may very well be a good way of helping lots of people to reduce their risk of overeating,’ said the study’s co-head, Dr. Gareth Hollands, a health and behavior researcher at the University of Cambridge. Until now, the data for this effect has been fragmented, so the overall picture has been unclear, Hollands said in a university news release.Pesticides Over 400 pesticides are licensed for use on America’s foods, and every year over 2.5 billion pounds are dumped on croplands, forests, lawns, and fields. In a single meal, a person could easily consume residues of a dozen different neurotoxic or carcinogenic chemical substances. Yet, any office of Pesticide Applications at the Environmental Protection Agency will not include the potential for multiple exposures to the same pesticide when calculating permitted residual degrees of a given compound. EPA researchers have found that, at any right time, if these residues had been totaled, they would go beyond 500 % of the daily-allowed intake. Furthermore, these chemicals have not really been examined for human safety, and the EPA doesn’t have a acceptable way for determining the risk for multiple exposures scientifically.
