In a finding that defies conventional culinary wisdom, researchers in Italy report that cooking vegetables can preserve or even boost their nutritional value in comparison to their raw counterparts, depending on the cooking method used.


I think as long as you don't fry them you're in good shape.
This is true.  The faster something is cooked, the more nutrients are preserved.  Roasting in the oven vs a Microwave can generate a difference somewhat.  Length of time cooking and temperature are the determinants.

Vegetables are meaningless for any competitive athlete. They're filler... nothing more. If you're a fat slob trying to "diet" vegetables can help.
Totally wrong and ignorant for too many reasons to list, disease prevention being the largest.


Dr. Duke's Farmacy, the online phytochemical and ethnobotanical database provides much insight into the chemical profile of thousands of different edible plants(including fruits and vegetables).

One of the least known but most fundamental principles of healthy eating, and it's brought out in the database, is that phytochemicals, the chemicals in plants that help our bodies, form part of a synergy when they are absorbed by the body. Which means they WORK TOGETHER to aid our body in infinite ways. This means that we cannot simply take supplements, because they DO NOT WORK to their full capacity WITHOUT THEIR COMPLEMENTARY CHEMICALS. It also means that the object of healthy eating is NOT the most antioxidant capacity, but the widest possible variety of healthy foods to complete the synergy of phytochemicals.


One final note, take a look at Dr. Duke's Database. You will notice some remarkable things in there. Antioxidant and antiinflammatory properties are just the tip of the Iceberg. There are literally hundreds of activities and superactivities just waiting to be uncovered.

p.s. Dr James A Duke is a 30 year veteran with the USDA and has authored 29 books on ethnobotany and botanopharmacology.

i buy veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots) and keep them in the fridge,  they seem to start turning a bit brown after just 3 days.  How can I keep them fresh for a few more days?
A few things Bast.

1. Your vegetables don`t seem very fresh as they should keep longer.
2. IF they are fresh, then your refrigerator needs to be turned to a cooler setting.  There should be a temperature dial.
3. IF that still doesn`t work, buy some limes and squeeze lime juice on your vegetables before putting them in the fridge.  This will stop oxidization. 
4. You have the right approach in using fresh Vegetables.  Keep it up.  People are getting ripped off by buying frozen since you are paying for packaging and brand names.  Try to find a Farmers Market.  I can find one in your area if you like.

Frozen veggies are just as good as fresh. They are frozen while fresh and retain their vitamins. It's all in how you prepare the veggies after thawing that determines their nutrient content.

Well, depending on what type of cancer one has, the European model would certainly not be the best pick. Cancer survival rates for colon cancer, amongst others is quite a bit lower than it is in the US. Health care in Europe is rationed, so it isn't the be all and end all.
Plus, the survival rate has nothing to do with the quality of healthcare. If you read the  Verdecchia study, it has to do with early detection and an aware population and not quality.

Norway, Sweden, and Finland are all at the VERY TOP of survival rate for colon cancer, ahead of the United States and ALL have UNIVERSAL Healthcare.

Naught to do with Laura

But MANY of you here

Go without medical insurance

And spend more on your lifting lifstyles

and go without such important insurance

when that is nuts

I pay for my own, and have for 18 years, its paid for hundreds of thousands in claims I have had...without it, I'd be without home or future

remember, I do not complain, like folks like Adonis...I Act,a dn Care for myself

Lay off the extra whey prtien and other lifting and bb bs, esp if you are without med insurance
If given the option of both Universal Healthcare and Private would many people still pay?

People only pay because they are FORCED to.  There is no other option.  YOU SHOULD BE COMPLAINING!  You are paying more for health insurance and medical costs because of the current bloated system!  You are paying MORE now for the same care that you would get under HR 676.

Doesn`t make sense does it?

I think people like you would just be upset simply because once Universal Healthcare would hit, you`d feel so stupid for paying nonsense costs for 18 years.  You`d hate to know that you wasted so much money.

Either way, Universal Healthcare would be cheaper on you Moosejay for the same level of care.  The care in fact would be better as you could CHOOSE which doctor to go to.  Also, we keep the private option available for the holdouts who still want to waste money.  So I don`t see how anyone loses out.

Think, do we REALLY need those extra 100 Nuclear warheads or would you rather insure 300 million people?  Which is better for the country I ask you?

Doctors Support Universal Health Care: Survey
by Maggie Fox
WASHINGTON - More than half of U.S. doctors now favor switching to a national health care plan and fewer than a third oppose the idea, according to a survey published on Monday.

http://www.commondreams.org/archive/2008/04/01/8018/


The DOCTORS Want Universal Healthcare Overwhelmingly.  They deserve it certainly for all of their hard work.

Look you buffoon,
You are not capable of rational thought. You probably think you should have Police Insurance or Fire Insurance so if someone who gets their house broken into they should be denied protection or if their house were to be on fire, the Fire Department should skip over and let it burn.  Your same mentality would have Federal and government employees without healthcare.  I digress, but the government can and will do things correctly.  

You would rather have Laura agonize and wither in pain simply because she can`t afford medical care?  A service that could EASILY be taken care of if we spent just a fraction less on Bombs, Guns and Hummers?

Your ignorance is overabundant you knuckle dragging dolt.

Laura,

Your type cancer luckily is not fatal and won`t be so don`t worry at all that your mortality is at stake.  Focus instead on the recovery afterwards and look ahead.  Make sure you also get second opinions.

Also, if you can`t afford care, please sign up for Medicaid and also visit various non-profit cancer sites.  They will always help you out. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE take a minute to send and sign this: www.HR676.org  or  http://www.michaelmoore.com/sicko/what-can-i-do/petitions/pnum649.php


The bill is HR 676, single payer Universal HealthCare for all.  Nobody in America should die or get second class treatment simply because they can`t afford it.  I urge you Laura to send this to all of your friends and to sign it.

He never responds to direct challenges.  He always changes the subject (can't even call it a proper red herring  Roll Eyes) or ignores the challenge altogether.

It's best to ignore him.  If someone's ignorant and/or stupid enough to be impressed by his ham-fisted romp through a thesaurus blather*, that person's probably a lost cause anyway. 

*What's really amusing is how often Primadonis can't even use his online thesaurus correctly.  Almost every time he comes about "full of high sentence," he's more than "a bit obtuse" Wink

(A cookie for the person who can name the alluded work WITHOUT Google.  I'll give you a hint:  Colonel Kurtz's character in "Apocalypse Now" reads some of this poet's work aloud.)

In other words, the guy fumbles his "big" words -- and badly -- about every time he trots 'em out.  But he'll never admit to those mistakes.  And the rabble will say he's owned your mind or somesuch illogic.  Playground "debate" tactics ... but NASA employee and self-styled Renaissance Man Adam -- oh, he's above that  Roll Eyes

I would like to invite Primadonis to a forum in which the peanut gallery couldn't [weakly] try to obfuscate things by calling me a c*nt, asking for pics of my tits and so on.  But he'd be afraid to discuss something in a forum that truly abides burden of proof, punishes logical fallacies AND would laugh oh so heartily at a moron who thinks science is a proper noun Cheesy

(Pst, Adam!  Science is NOT a proper noun.  That means you should Stop Capitalizing It!  Wink)

nothing against scientific research, you didn't get my point.


Also, you tend to agressivly promote one topic without accepting any chance for discussion.

But his copy&paste Mr-Know-It-All just pisses me off. Adonis comes here once a year and in that time spams the board with his utter bullshit and copied articles.

Back then it was McDonalds, his new topic is MILK. He will go to google, type "milk and muscle growth" or "milk and protein synthesis" and then cpoy and paste sprre all over the board for hours and hours.

Furthermore, if you notice this entire thread, I have taken myself out of the equation and provided the unbiased research that you can choose to draw your own conclusions with.  Hopefully, you will take the evidence into consideration rather than choose to turn a blind eye to a fact simply because you don`t like the messenger.  That is true ignorance.

Another Study without the "Dairy Grant"

Milk Ingestion Stimulates Net Muscle Protein Synthesis following Resistance Exercise.

BASIC SCIENCES
Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise. 38(4):667-674, April 2006.
ELLIOT, TABATHA A.; CREE, MELANIE G.; SANFORD, ARTHUR P.; WOLFE, ROBERT R.; TIPTON, KEVIN D.

Abstract:
Purpose: Previous studies have examined the response of muscle protein to resistance exercise and nutrient ingestion. Net muscle protein synthesis results from the combination of resistance exercise and amino acid intake. No study has examined the response of muscle protein to ingestion of protein in the context of a food. This study was designed to determine the response of net muscle protein balance following resistance exercise to ingestion of nutrients as components of milk.

Method: Three groups of volunteers ingested one of three milk drinks each: 237 g of fat-free milk (FM), 237 g of whole milk (WM), and 393 g of fat-free milk isocaloric with the WM (IM). Milk was ingested 1 h following a leg resistance exercise routine. Net muscle protein balance was determined by measuring amino acid balance across the leg.

Results: Arterial concentrations of representative amino acids increased in response to milk ingestion. Threonine balance and phenylalanine balance were both > 0 following milk ingestion. Net amino acid uptake for threonine was 2.8-fold greater (P < 0.05) for WM than for FM. Mean uptake of phenylalanine was 80 and 85% greater for WM and IM, respectively, than for FM, but not statistically different. Threonine uptake relative to ingested was significantly (P < 0.05) higher for WM (21 +/- 6%) than FM (11 +/- 5%), but not IM (12 +/- 3%). Mean phenylalanine uptake/ingested also was greatest for WM, but not significantly.

Conclusions: Ingestion of milk following resistance exercise results in phenylalanine and threonine uptake, representative of net muscle protein synthesis. These results suggest that whole milk may have increased utilization of available amino acids for protein synthesis.

Hopefully this also clarifies why I advocated Whole Milk or Raw Milk.  As you see, it is more beneficial than Skim and has the potential to be understood even better given more research.  WM=Whole Milk.

And if you like the PostWorkout shake it should matter not if you have it within 1 or 3 hours after your workout.  Do not feel pressured that the "Magical Anabolic Window" will close on you.

An oral essential amino acid-carbohydrate supplement enhances muscle protein anabolism after resistance exercise
Blake B. Rasmussen, Kevin D. Tipton, Sharon L. Miller, Steven E. Wolf, and Robert R. Wolfe

Department of Surgery, University of Texas Medical Branch and Metabolism Unit, Shriners Burns Institute, Galveston, Texas 77550

This study was designed to determine the response of muscle protein to the bolus ingestion of a drink containing essential amino acids and carbohydrate after resistance exercise. Six subjects (3 men, 3 women) randomly consumed a treatment drink (6 g essential amino acids, 35 g sucrose) or a flavored placebo drink 1 h or 3 h after a bout of resistance exercise on two separate occasions. We used a three-compartment model for determination of leg muscle protein kinetics. The model involves the infusion of ring-2H5-phenylalanine, femoral arterial and venous blood sampling, and muscle biopsies. Phenylalanine net balance and muscle protein synthesis were significantly increased above the predrink and corresponding placebo value (P < 0.05) when the drink was taken 1 or 3 h after exercise but not when the placebo was ingested at 1 or 3 h. The response to the amino acid-carbohydrate drink produced similar anabolic responses at 1 and 3 h. Muscle protein breakdown did not change in response to the drink. We conclude that essential amino acids with carbohydrates stimulate muscle protein anabolism by increasing muscle protein synthesis when ingested 1 or 3 h after resistance exercise.

Timing of amino acid-carbohydrate ingestion alters anabolic response of muscle to resistance exercise
Kevin D. Tipton1,2, Blake B. Rasmussen1,2, Sharon L. Miller1,2, Steven E. Wolf1, Sharla K. Owens-Stovall1, Bart E. Petrini1, and Robert R. Wolfe1,2

1 Department of Surgery, University of Texas Medical Branch, and 2 Metabolism Unit, Shriners Hospitals for Children, Galveston, Texas 77550

The present study was designed to determine whether consumption of an oral essential amino acid-carbohydrate supplement (EAC) before exercise results in a greater anabolic response than supplementation after resistance exercise. Six healthy human subjects participated in two trials in random order, PRE (EAC consumed immediately before exercise), and POST (EAC consumed immediately after exercise). A primed, continuous infusion of L-[ring-2H5]phenylalanine, femoral arteriovenous catheterization, and muscle biopsies from the vastus lateralis were used to determine phenylalanine concentrations, enrichments, and net uptake across the leg. Blood and muscle phenylalanine concentrations were increased by ~130% after drink consumption in both trials. Amino acid delivery to the leg was increased during exercise and remained elevated for the 2 h after exercise in both trials. Delivery of amino acids (amino acid concentration times blood flow) was significantly greater in PRE than in POST during the exercise bout and in the 1st h after exercise (P < 0.05). Total net phenylalanine uptake across the leg was greater (P = 0.0002) during PRE (209 42 mg) than during POST (81 19). Phenylalanine disappearance rate, an indicator of muscle protein synthesis from blood amino acids, increased after EAC consumption in both trials. These results indicate that the response of net muscle protein synthesis to consumption of an EAC solution immediately before resistance exercise is greater than that when the solution is consumed after exercise, primarily because of an increase in muscle protein synthesis as a result of increased delivery of amino acids to the leg.
