How to reduce the amount of sodium in food?

How to reduce the amount of sodium in food?


Think about it, what foods are high in sodium? French fries, chips, mum, pizza, chowmein and other fast food, processed food, and various foods found in restaurants?


Not only that, but the pieces of bread consumed by the westerners also contain a lot of sodium, which may surprise anyone.



However, such high sodium foods are also high in calories. As it is easy to cook and easily available, people have to choose such food. So, if your diet includes chips, snacks, bread, fried food, processed food, restaurant food, etc., understand that you are not only eating salt, you are also increasing the number of calories in the body.


Surprisingly, the relationship between sodium and weight is not limited to this. There are many other things where sodium not only makes people hungry, it also increases their ability to eat food.


Sodium also makes people feel thirsty faster. As a result, people drink a lot of soft drinks, including soda and beer. That's why people at the bar offer free popcorn and pints in front of your table in the hope of consuming more beer or other liquor. So it is not uncommon for a person who eats high-sodium foods to gain weight.


A 2015 study also found that eating a high-sodium diet can lead to weight gain and a larger waist. Besides, other studies have shown a strong link between high sodium consumption and body weight.


Eating high sodium foods can lead to high blood pressure. It also proves that high sodium foods can cause high blood pressure by increasing the amount of water retained in the body.


Various studies and research are being done on how to reduce the amount of sodium in food. But for now, it is important to understand that weight loss can be controlled by reducing sodium intake. Reducing the intake of high sodium foods can also reduce the intake of high-calorie junk food.


For this, it is not necessary to completely ban high sodium foods. Sodium levels can also be controlled by paying close attention to food and reducing the intake of processed foods and junk food. With the help of which blood pressure is reduced and weight is also controlled.

The study says that people in the 5 gene group have a higher risk of corona

The study says that people in the 5 gene group have a higher risk of corona


The country is now engulfed in a world war of coronavirus. Scientists around the world are testing a vaccine against the virus. While some vaccines have had a positive effect, happiness has spread around the world.


Based on the statistics, the number of virus infections is constantly increasing, but in the meantime, new research on the effects of the coronavirus is also coming out. So far, scientific studies have shown that people of which blood group are at risk for corona? That was searched. Scientists are now conducting scientific research on the gene. According to their study, which genes are most at risk for corona? Has been given more priority.



These 5 types of genes are at higher risk - study


According to researchers at the University of Edinburgh in the United Kingdom, most of the corona infections have been found in people with the genes TYK2, CCR2, OAS1, IFNAR2, and DPP9. The study found that those with severe symptoms were more likely to be at risk.


Not only that, people with these 5 types of genes have a high risk of serious illness or even death.


According to the Daily Mail, 22 percent of the 2,700 people in the five genes mentioned above have died. Of these, 74 percent were patients who could not breathe on their own. When they arrived in critical condition, they were placed on a ventilator.


Coronavirus becomes serious for some groups


Experience of many types of corona infection has also come out in Nepal. Some people get seriously ill because of the corona. But many do not even have the symptoms.


In this research, scientists claim that this study has found that it is serious for people of certain age groups. Not only that, but scientists have also claimed that the discovery of the genes most affected by the corona will also help in making medicine.


Different symptoms of corona in anyone


Most of the time we hear the news that some people have mild symptoms of corona and some have severe symptoms. Some people need a common medicine and some need a ventilator. Some may have an only fever and the symptoms may go away on their own, while others may need to be treated in a hospital.


Use caution


As far as corona vaccine testing is concerned, it may take a long time for it to reach us. That's why doctors say that Corona should not be considered normal. Since the corona crisis is not over, don't stop wearing a mask, take a hot bath, wash your hands, and go to crowded places. Doing so can prevent coronavirus.

Excessive food risk of serious disease, study says.

Excessive food risk of serious disease, study says.


Most people get sick because of their unhealthy eating habits. Not only can this cause stomach problems, but it can also be the cause of many other serious illnesses.


Recent research has shown that this is contrary to popular belief. Not only people who eat badly but also people who eat a lot of food are more likely to have problems including heart attack.






Various researches have described how unhealthy food increases heart insecurity. Eating too many increases the risk of heart attack for up to two hours after eating. So let's go into detail about what this research says.


What does the research say?


According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 610,000 people die of heart attacks in the United States each year. When investigators wanted to know the reason, they discovered some strange habits. One of the main habits of these is to eat too much food. This research shows that heavy food is the trigger for heart attack. This is especially harmful to people who are overweight or obese.


Eating too much increases the risk of heart attack


Eating too much food also causes problems related to cholesterol and high blood pressure. Which is most related to heart health. In fact, high levels of cholesterol can clog your arteries and cause circulatory problems. This circulatory problem is linked to high blood pressure and increases the risk of a heart attack. There are many other causes as well, due to which heavy eating can increase the chances of a heart attack. In fact, it takes energy to eat and digest food, which raises blood pressure along with the need for oxygen. It pumps more blood to the heart.


Similarly, high blood pressure obstructs the blood vessels in the arterial wall. Which causes a heart attack or stroke. Similarly, a high-fat diet impairs the function of the endothelium, the lining of the arteries. Researchers have found that the risk of heart attack increases almost fourfold within two hours of eating a lot of heavy foods. This problem is especially common in people with pre-existing heart disease. For example, a person with coronary artery disease or a previous heart attack is more likely to have this problem.


Nepalis have a balanced ratio of carbohydrates, proteins, and other essential nutrients in their regular diet. But even eating such food can be a problem. Excessive consumption of fried foods with cream or butter can also easily lead to heart disease. So food should be eaten in a balanced way.
