Sweet potatoes health benefits

Sweet potatoes health benefits

Sweet potatoes contain beta-carotene, something the body converts to vitamin A, which keeps skin smooth and is thought to prevent against sun damage. Its large, starchy, sweet-tasting, tuberous roots are a root vegetable. Besides simple starches and beta-carotene, sweet potatoes are rich in complex carbohydrates, dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, manganese and potassium. Sweet potato varieties with dark orange flesh have more beta carotene than those with light-colored flesh.

Diet soda bad for you

This is hardly news but according to France's National Institute of Health and Medical Research study, diet soda may increase your risk of Type 2 diabetes. 66,118 middle-aged women participated in the research and their health and diets were monitored from 1993 to 2007. Results show that drinking artificially sweetened drinks increases the risk of becoming overweight and developing diabetes because it makes your body crave and consume more sweets. Another study also said that diet sodas may increase risk of depression and aspartame, an artificial sweetener may be the cause. And to top it all off, diet sodas may also make you fat (shocker!). Again, aspartame, the culprit, messes with your appetite so that you are never satisfied, making you eat more.
