The case against reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Remember, one point that is often overlooked, it is very hard (although by no means impossible) for vegetarians to follow a low carb diet.
Reducing carbs might mean missing out on vital nutrients from healthy carbohydrate foods which should be part of any well-balanced diet, especially those that we get from grains, vegetables and fruits.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, onions and welsh onion)
The onion family is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is very little scientific evidence obtainable, allyl sulphides are also thought to help with antiinflammatory effect, high blood pressure and diabetes.
Foods containing allyl sulfides are also low in calories, so should be a part of every diet system.
