Q: Is it true that the change in diet to milky coffee has
reduced calcium deficiency in Americans?
There seems to be no official data about how many Americans have changed their diets to milky coffee, so we don't know if drinking it has decreased calcium deficiency in them, but we can ask if it can reduce it.
In summary, there is very little evidence to ...
Milk consumption and osteoporosis
In a large study in Sweden they observed an association between high milk consumption and increased incidence of osteoporosis, especially in women. The authors suggested that one possible explanation could be reverse causality: People who knew they were at increased risk of osteoporosis, for example, due to family history ...
A summary of recent evidence suggests:
In children with initial low calcium intake, an increase in milk/dairy intake is associated with an increase in bone density.
In adults, milk/dairy consumption is not or only weakly associated with lower risk of bone fractures.
90% of peak bone mineral density (the amount of calcium and phosphorus ...
Arguably, the adoption of a more Western diet eliminated the higher than average life expectancy which the people of Okinawa enjoyed.
The prevalence of heart disease and cerebrovascular disease increased. The article summary describes the main dietary changes:
Also, as of 1988, daily intake of green and yellow vegetables in Okinawa was about 50% higher ...
There is a 30 October 2013 article Go Inside The Factory That Makes 2 Billion Candy Corn Kernels Every Year that is based upon the History Channel's video footage. "The History Channel visited the Brach's candy plant in a recent episode of 'Modern Marvels' ".
The article links to the video and has stills from the video.
Different dyes are added to the ...
As long as the diet soda is still a sweetened beverage containing artificial (ie non-caloric) sweetener, then they do help make people fat. Regardless of age. That is, as a tendency: eat more. And this is really old news.
Artificial sweeteners are for a long time now used to fattened pigs and cattle. The research there is now just how to optimise its ...
Diet soda refers to a calorie-free carbonated beverage sweetened by artificial sweeteners.
The current evidence does not provide a proof that diet soda causes weight gain, but the main points are:
Overweight individuals may drink diet soda to prevent further weight gain, but they still gain weight because they do not decrease calorie intake from foods, ...
In this answer, "diet soda" refers to any sugar-free version of the drinks known as soda. "In many parts of the U.S., soda is a sweet, fizzy drink (Vocabulary.com)."
Is diet soda as bad for your teeth as regular soda?
According to some experiemental studies, diet soda can be erosive to teeth, but seems to be less erosive than regular soda.
An in vitro ...
The only difference between diet and regular drinks is whether they contain sugar.
The sugar itself doesn't cause tooth decay.
That is caused by bacteria breeding in the sugary environment and producing acid that dissolves tooth enamel:
Tooth decay is the destruction of your tooth enamel, the hard, outer layer of your teeth. It can be a problem for ...
According to Free amino acid concentrations in milk: Effects of microwave versus conventional heating Amino Acids (1998) 15: 385
concentrations of glutamate and glycine
increased more after water bath heating at 90°C (325 +/- 4 and 101 +/- 1 micromol/
L, respectively) than after microwave heating (312 +/- 4 and 95 + 1/micromol/L,
respectively, p &...
Not food, but microwave-vs.-conventional heating is a branch of chemistry: Comparison of Conventional and Microwave-assisted Synthesis of Benzotriazole Derivatives.
So the basic idea that different reactions happen is obviously true when cooking food: It tastes different, the crust (if there) feels different, etc. You specifically miss most Maillard ...

This meta-analysis showed that whey protein supplementation can actually reduce markers of inflammation.
Whey supplementation is beneficial for human health, possibly by
reducing the circulating C-reactive protein (CRP) level, a sensitive
marker of inflammation. Thus, a meta-analysis ...
