Does Sugar Cause Inflammation?
Research shows that what we eat has a significant impact on our bodies. In particular, excess sugar is known to increase inflammation in the body. Chronic inflammation can result a range of ailments and poor health outcomes, including depression, anxiety, aches and pains, low immunity, digestive issues, fatigue and insomnia, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s.
What is inflammation? In a nutshell, inflammation is the body’s response to foreign substances and is part of its defense mechanism. Chronic inflammation, however, can cause disease because the body is constantly on alert and stressed. Sugar increases inflammation in several ways including: weight gain, higher bad cholesterol, a more permeable gut (which allows bacteria and toxins into the bloodstream) and an increase in harmful inflammation markers.
Reducing sugar in your diet is linked to reducing inflammation. The problem is that sugar is in almost everything and a lot of the time we don’t even know it. It is in dressings, drinks, yogurt, snack bars, tea, alternative milks, supplements, cereal, and even health foods.
The Food and Drug Administration recommends that added sugar should account for less than 10 percent of your total daily calories. Here are some ways to cut out sugar in your diet and help reduce inflammation:
Store Potatoes in the Fridge? Think Again!
Potatoes in the Fridge could put your health at risk. Every heard of acrylamide? Me neither... but it's bad stuff ... Scientists have known for years that acrylamide is capable of causing nerve damage in humans, including muscle weakness and impaired muscle coordination. Studies have shown that not refrigerating potatoes and decreasing cooking time to avoid browning, can reduce acrylamide content. So play it safe and go with the American Cancer Society’s recommendation for your spuds: Keep them out of the fridge, store them in a cool, dry place, such as a cabinet or pantry, and just cook them lightly.
Appliances aren’t made to be as durable as they used to be. Changes in manufacturing have led to cheaper parts being used, and this applies to dishwashers, refrigerators, clothes washers and dryers. Products also have more electronic systems, increasing the risk that more parts will fail. Here are tips on how to pick an appliance that lasts:

As shelter-in-place orders were implemented earlier this year, many questioned what the shutdown would mean to the real estate market. Specifically, there was concern about home values. After years of rising home prices, would 2020 be the year this appreciation trend would come to a screeching halt? Even worse, would home values begin to depreciate?
Original forecasts modeled this uncertainty, and they ranged anywhere from home values gaining 3% (Zelman & Associates) to home values depreciating by more than 6% (CoreLogic).
However, as the year unfolded, it became clear that there would be little negative impact on the housing market. As Mark Fleming, Chief Economist at First American, recently revealed:
“The only major industry to display immunity to the economic impacts of the coronavirus is the housing market.”
Have prices continued to appreciate so far this year?
“Between May & July 2020, national prices increased by over 2%, which represents the largest two-month price increase observed since the start of the index in 1991.”
What are the experts forecasting for home prices going forward?
Since the market has changed dramatically over the last few months, this graph shows forecasts that have been published since September 1st.
The numbers show that home values have weathered the storm of the pandemic.
