Health Interview Assignment Everybody knows that rational nutrition is very important for our health. However, quantity of various diets, vitamin complexes, nutrition supplements is so huge that it is difficult to gain an understanding of rational nutrition. The aim of the present health interview was to find out the basics of rational nutrition a posteriori of my mother, who agreed to answer several questions. First of all we tried to find out whether a healthy person needs to take all those vitamins and supplements. As far as we know, there are plenty of cases when people had no possibility to take additional nutritional and vitamin complexes and radiant with health. On contrary, there were cases when additional usage of mineral supplements was injurious to health and provoked certain diseases. In the judgment of my mother, some people, probably, can avoid using additional vitamins. However, she claims that recent medical researches prove the fact that additional usage of mineral and vitamin complexes really prevent many serious diseases. For example, she says, according to one of the recent American medical surveys, people who were taking additional vitamin complexes four times less were exposed to cancer.
She adds that the natural wish is to remain healthy, wealthy and cheerful till the very end of his life. So, vitamin and mineral complexes together with biologically active supplements help people to improve quality of their life. Medical researches convince that people who take additional calcium supplements considerably decrease risk of senile osteoporosis. It sounds quite cheerful, isnt it? Yet, my mother adds that those people, who are afraid to ruin natural balance, are also right. For example, you cannot take calcium without magnesium and vitamin D. Besides, you should take calcium during your usual meals, several times per day. In this case additional calcium will be assimilated properly and will bring you good.

The next question I asked her was whether the set of necessary minerals and vitamins can depend of nationality. She smiled that people, by their nature, have more similarities than differences. However, what concerns peculiarities of rational nutrition complexes and diets, certain changes should be done depending on country, its climate and cultural traditions. I asked her to give some illustration to this recommendation. She explained it by example of selenium. Medical researches claim that additional consummation of selenium can decrease the risk of cancer and heart diseases. As far as she knows, American soil historically cannot boast with high percentage of selenium, and American nation often feels lack of it.
However, there are countries where population consumes mainly fish products (for example, Japan and some northern sea countries), and, as a consequence of this fact, percentage of selenium in the organism is quite high. Due to this reason, population of Japan, for example, doesnt need to take selenium additionally together with other minerals. At the same time, the countries, where level of fish consummation is quite low, additional selenium is the must. Her explanation seemed to have a lot of reason. The next question, naturally, was aimed to find out whether the choice of vitamins and mineral supplements depends on the age? She answered that first of all we need to understand the very concept of rational nutrition. As far as she considers, there are many products that can be considered conditionally poisonous.
Such products have no (or almost dont have) nutritional value. At the same time, such food is rich in calories and favors to obesity. She says that she tries to avoid such useless products like sugar, white wheat bread, macaroni, rice, potatoes, and salt. Naturally, she was proposed to give some recommendations concerning rational nutrition and healthy products. According to her recommendations, her favorite products are fruit ad vegetables with rind. She says that, probably, they are not as tasty as chocolate pie, but they quickly satisfy hunger. Such products are not rich in calories; they are rich in cellulose and antioxidants. She explains that such products contain all components we need to include into our everyday nutrition as a basis for rational diet. For example, she adds, when you eat white wheat bread, you receive few quantity of useful nutritive materials and cellulose.
Calcium Supplementation and Increases in Bone Mineral Density in Children Scientists have found that peak bone mass in childhood is a major cause of bone mineral density in adulthood and may decrease the risk of osteoporotic fractures. Osteoporotic fractures are those caused by a disease (Osteoporosis) which causes bones to be extremely porous. There are however other factors, such as Genetic and ...
Instead, you get plenty of calories that increase sugar level and stimulate insulin generation that, in its turn, leads to obesity. Further, she adds, milk is rich in calcium. At the same time, milk has several negative moments. For example, it can contain high percent of fat (and its one of the most negative aspects, she notes).
Secondly, milk contains lactose (milk sugar).
The major part of adults has certain difficulties with assimilation of lactose, and these difficulties result into digestive problems.
In such a way, we can see that milk cannot be related to good products, because it implies both good and bad for our organism. She adds that low-calorie yoghurt can become a sound alternative to milk. Such yoghurt has no lactose and exceed calories, but proposes useful bacteria and calcium instead. Finally, we reverted to the question of age categories and recommended mineral supplements. She says with all her responsibility that the question of age plays no key role in the problem of choice. She considers that there are too few supplements that can ruin your health in any age in case you do not overdose.
For example, calcium recommended dosage can vary depending on age and style of life. Young people should consume high quantity of calcium during the period of skeleton growth. Adults (in their mid-thirties) should take additional calcium in case they consume low quantity of diary products. Older people should increase calcium dosage in order to protect their bones due to high risk of osteoporosis. In conclusion she said that the main concept of rational nutrition is low-calorie, useful products rich in cellulose, minerals and vitamins. Such food should contain low level of fats, cholesterol, salt, sugar and synthetic ingredients.
