Let’s start a health revolution – The Recorder

Posted: October 15, 2019 at 8:41 pm

Published: 10/14/2019 3:48:33 PM

I want to start my column today by saying thank you to a couple of ladies who have not only changed their own lives, but have helped many others change theirs, too. Thank you, Amanda Ambrose and Laura Burt, for starting a positive group on Facebook called Lets Start a Revolution. The page helps inspire and support people looking to improve their health and wellness.

As two women who are battling weight and health issues, these ladies took the bull by the horns and have changed their lives by dropping a couple of hundred pounds between them and have inspired so many others, including myself, to lose weight and make healthy lifestyle changes. This, in turn, gives people a new attitude and outlook on their own lives.

I started my weight loss journey 4 years ago, when I was over 600 pounds, and I have dropped over 250 pounds since then.

I was going to die if I didnt change my ways, fast. Laura Burt was in the same boat and living the same life as I was, but she is 20 years younger. I was very worried about her because she was heading down the same path as I was, which, honestly, was a path toward disaster. Lauras best friend, Amanda Ambrose, was obese as well and needed to make changes, too. Instead of getting bypass surgery, they decided to lose weight by making healthy choices and changing their lifestyles the path that I also took.

By losing weight, having a positive attitude and making huge changes in their lives, they have helped thousands of people across the country, not just here in Franklin County, change their lives as well. Its called Lets Start a Revolution for a reason.

If we all start to promote healthier lifestyles, we can inspire each other and support each other through stories, by sharing recipes and exercise tips, and forming groups to hike or meet at the gym together.

If you want to learn more about the revolution, log onto Facebook and search for Lets Start a Revolution.

Locally, theres another community health group on Facebook, Greenfield Womens Couch to 10k Walk/Run Group, which has also inspired people toward a healthier way of living.

On a not so happy note, I want to note that some of our community members are getting pretty nasty when it comes to local politics. Its gotten so bad that some friendships are being lost.

We are really losing touch with what is most important and what is best for the community community is what is most important. I feel like we need to regroup and stop being so negative about everything, politically speaking. I will admit that I, also, have been vocal myself and it hasnt all been positive, either. Instead of fighting and being nasty to each other, we should be focusing on working together toward whats best for our town in cooperation, respect and a perspective that takes into account whats best for all people, not just ourselves.

Finally, this week I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has stepped up so far to support my community Thanksgiving dinner fundraiser for needy families here in Franklin County. We are off to a wonderful start. People can donate money and support a family for $50. Each family will receive a 20-pound turkey, stuffing mix, potatoes, butternut squash, carrots, cranberry sauce, rolls and an apple pie.

To sponsor a needy family, you can email me at or Personal message me on Facebook by searching, Bobby C. Campbell. My goal this year is to feed over 1,000 people and, through the support of local business owners, community members, local organizations like the Millers Falls Rod & Gun Club and the Oak Ridge Detachment Marine Corps League, hopefully, we will reach our goal this year.

This money will also help to feed hundreds of people at the Greenfield Salvation Armys community Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 24 at 5 p.m. and a second meal at the Living Waters Assembly of God Church on Davis Street, which will be held on Thanksgiving Day at noon in the basement of the church.

Thanks again for reading Bobbys World, and I hope that you enjoy the beautiful fall foliage that decorates our region.

As a local personality for radio stations WHAI 98.3, Bear Country 95.3, WHMP 99.3 and Bobby Cs DJ Service for the past 36 years, Bobby C. Campbell has been connected to the community for a very long time. If you have an event that needs promotion or an idea for a future column, e-mail him at

Andy Ruiz Jr. boasts five-week SLIMLINE physique, but is it too much? – WBN – World Boxing News

Posted: October 15, 2019 at 8:41 pm

World Boxing News 15/10/2019


Andy Ruiz Jr. had lost a considerable amount of timber in the five weeks ahead of a scheduled rematch with Anthony Joshua.

Despite there being SEVEN WEEKS to go, Ruiz looks to have shed at least a couple of stone despite looking heavier than when he defeated Joshua in June at a recent press conference run.

Ruiz had been enjoying his new champion lifestyle between June and September before the Mexican and Joshua embarked on a media tour.

At least a few pounds over the 268 mark he hit for the shock Joshua victory in New York, Ruiz then went away on September 7 to begin training.

By October 7 (in the video below), Ruiz looked lightning fast in a clip posted on his social media.

Fast forward another week, and Ruiz posted a jaw-droppingly slimline photo of himself having dropped even more weight.

Fans are flabbergasted at the transformation, although there are some who fear the alteration is too much.

Having dealt with Joshua with relative ease following an expected knockdown at Madison Square Garden, could a huge change be detrimental?

At the end of the day, Ruiz won the fight as his usual self. Hes not the most blessed in the physique department.

This played for him as AJ predictably took him too lightly and paid the price.

Maybe without the element of surprise, The Destroyer is aiming for something different, believing higher stamina and speed is key.

Already a picture of significant difference, its hard to gauge whether losing much more in the next two months will help further.

It remains to be seen and all questions will be answered on fight night.

During that press tour leg in Saudi Arabia, Ruiz outlined his plans to make sure hes in top shape.

On December 7 I know that Anthony Joshua is going to come hard. Hes going to come strong and will be preparing really well but so am I, he explained.

Im really hungry. A lot of people have been saying that Im not training or taking it seriously but come on I have all these belts and there are responsibilities to this.

I am going to try my best. Im going to keep these belts and take them back to Mexico.

On December 7 I am going to make history again. Ill win here (Saudi) in the same fashion and the same way that I won on June 1. Im going to prove everybody wrong.

The hunger still remains and I dont want 15 minutes of fame. I want this to last for a generation.

So, I want to be a champion for many years. I have a good fighter next to me who is going to try and take these belts.

But God is with me. Were going to be training really hard for December 7, added Ruiz.

How to prevent middle-age weight gain: the science of staying slim – The Times

Posted: October 15, 2019 at 8:41 pm

Gaining weight seems inevitable after your forties, but a few simple tips and lifestyle changes can keep the spread at bay, says Peta Bee

The Times,October 15 2019, 12:01am

You know youve reached middle age when weight loss becomes an uphill struggle. There are a multitude of factors stacked against us, not least a slowing metabolism and the shifts in hormones that typically contribute to wider hips in women and a paunch in men. Our activity levels typically begin a slow decline, and we naturally lose muscle mass so that the average middle-aged body is increasingly composed of fat.

Midlife weight gain occurs even if our lifestyle remains unchanged. A study from the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden published in the journal Nature Medicine last month, found that our lipid turnover the rate at which we store and remove fat from our fat cells slows with age.

For its trial, the Swedish team

The Cancer-Fighting Properties of a Plant-Based Keto Diet – One Green Planet

Posted: October 14, 2019 at 7:46 am

Enjoying healthy fats lately? You can probably thank the ketogenic diet for bringing these wonderful macronutrients back into the fold of a well-balanced diet.For years, the wordfat was condemned, ringing fear into the hearts of health-conscious folks. Yet, due to the science of lipidologists and researchers, this vital macronutrient has made the ultimate comeback.

Healthy fat is not only essential for a healthy functioning brain and nervous system, but its also been found to be an important nutrient for lowering cholesterol levels, promoting a healthy heart, reducing inflammation, and even boosting the health of skin, hair, and eyes.

Yet, one of the most surprising health benefits of high fat, low carb diet essentially the ketogenic diet is its effect on cancer cells. In fact, the keto diet is now being considered an adjunct therapy in addition to chemotherapy and radiation, boosting the efficacy of these treatments, while also nourishing the body and fighting cancer at its core.

Lets take a deeper dive into the keto diets amazing effects on cancer!

The keto diet short for ketogenic diet focuses on pushing your body into a state of ketosis a normal metabolic process in which the body does not have enough glucose for energy and therefore it burns stored fat instead [which] results in a build-up of acids called ketones within the body. In order to reach a state of ketosis, you must reduce your intake of glucose basically, arbs and sugar which forces your body to turn to other sources of energy.

The One Green Planet article entitled Breaking Down the Ketogenic Diet for Plant-Based Eaters breaks down the ketogenic diet succinctly:

The ketogenic dietrelies on three specific dietary elements: extremely low-carb intake, very high-healthy fat intake, and, depending on the type of keto diet, a certain intake of protein. By reducing carbohydrates such asstarches, fruits, and breadsthat are loaded with glucose youll push your body towards fat burning. By increasing healthy fat intake, your body will become an efficient fat-burning machine! Along with burning fat (revealed aspossibly the superior source of energy), ketosis accomplished via the ketogenic diet has also been shown tolower blood sugar and insulin levelsleading to a healthy insulinsensitive state.

There are four types of ketogenic dieting to choose from, all of which aim to achieve ketosis, yet for different reasons. The standard ketogenic diet focuses on 75 percent fat, 20 percent protein, and only five percent carbs. Cyclical ketogenic dieting allows for periods of carbohydrate ingesting mixed with periods of strict ketogenic dieting. Targeted ketogenic dieting allows for carbohydrate ingestion around high-intensity workouts, while following a keto diet at all other times. The high-protein ketogenic diet allows for 60 percent fat, 35 percent protein, and five percent carbs.

Depending on what you aim to achieve with ketosis, youll want to choose wisely with the type of keto diet!


While there are many health benefits that come from following the keto diet healthy weight management, reducing the risk of heart disease, lower risk of Alzheimers, and aiding with acne prevention and treatment, to name just a few one of the most profound currently being researched is the keto diets affect on cancer.

Cancer cells require a large amount of glucose to satisfy their energy needs and have demonstrated increased glucose metabolism compared with normal cells. Knowing this simple fact about cancer cells, the ketogenic diet is proposed as a potential adjuvant therapy by exploiting these differences between cancer and normal cells. Not only does the keto diet lower blood glucose levels, but it also promotes the creation of ketones which are not cancer-friendly when it comes to energy pathways, therefore you are decreasing the food supply for cancer cells and hopefully starving them out.

This relationship is specifically prevalent when it comes to certain types of tumors.

In a recent study published byCell Reports, it was discovered that restricting your blood sugar might also help combat certain cancerous tumor growths. While this specific research study is truly in its infancy, the findings are incredibly illuminating, especially when it comes to the relationship between sugar and cancer. In particular, it helped boost the validity of a study in 2017 which suggested that a specific type of cancer called squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) was particularly reliant on glucose to sustain itself and survive. By removing its main food source, patients were seeing positive outcomes.

While this specific study is new, the ketogenic diet has already been targeted much earlier on as a form of adjuvant therapy for cancer patients.

Way back in 2014, researchers were already looking at the keto diet for its ability to fight cancer identifying the keto diet as an adjuvant therapy to conventional radiation and chemotherapies' due to its ability to regulate blood sugar levels and selectively induce metabolic oxidative stress in cancer cells. This study hypothesized that the ketogenic diet could make cancer cells more sensitive to treatments like chemotherapy and radiation and therefore make them more effective.


If you venture down the keto diet path, youll notice that it oftentimes focuses on meat and meat-based products (such as butter and full-fat dairy) in order to obtain that coveted 75 percent fat daily content. So, how do you go about practicing a keto diet when youre a practicing vegetarian or vegan? Turns out there is a whole diet that focuses on this practice called ketotarian. Take the ketogenic diet, remove all animal products, divvy up your carbs a bit differently (up your intake of carbs to around 15 percent instead of the traditional 5), and up in the intake of healthy fat-filled plant-based foods. This is the ketotarian diet. If you want to start practicing a ketotarian diet, here are a few tried and true healthy plant-based fat sources to get you going!

If youre not a fan of avocado and youre switching to a ketotarian diet, you may need to change your tune and reprogram those taste buds. Avocados are one of the best sources of healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, and fiber in the plant-based kingdom. One pitted fruit offers a whopping 21 grams of fat 13 grams of monounsaturated, 2.5 grams of polyunsaturated, almost 3 grams of saturated, 150 milligrams of omega-3 fatty acids and 2298 milligrams of omega-6 fatty acids. With that said, one of the most important aspects of a balanced diet is the inclusion of a variety of nutrients in one simple package. Along with healthy fat, that one avocado also provides 9 grams of dietary fiber, 2.7 grams of protein, vitamins (C, E, and K, in particular), as well as folate, choline, niacin, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium.

One of my favorite guilty pleasures is eating avocado raw, straight from the peel! Simply remove the pit and fill the crate with your choice of oil I do extra-virgin olive oil some balsamic vinaigrette, salt, and a dash of pepper. If youre not an avocado lover, try integrating avocado into recipes that mask the flavor a bit such as this Chocolate Banana Avocado Pudding, this Grilled Mexican Quesadilla with Lentils, or this super flavorful, yet raw Basil Mustard Salad.

Raw Chocolate Energy Bars/One Green Planet

I cant say enough wonderful things about these plant-based foods! Both nuts and seeds pretty much any type that you choose provide a plentiful source of healthy fats including monounsaturated, polyunsaturated, saturated, and the omegas. Yet, nuts and seeds provide much more! Depending on the type of nut or seed, youll also get a helping of vitamins, minerals, protein, and fiber.

For instance, one cup of almonds one of the keto diet staples has over 20 grams of protein, over 11 grams of fiber, vitamins A and E, folate, niacin, choline, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, manganese, selenium and over 40 grams of fat 29.3 grams of monounsaturated, 11.5 grams of polyunsaturated, 3.5 grams saturated, and around 11,466 milligrams of the omegas.

Another great example are sunflower seeds. One cup of dry roasted sunflower seed kernels as over 24 grams of protein, over 11 grams of fiber, vitamins A, C, E, K, B6, niacin, folate, choline, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, manganese, selenium and over 63 grams of fat 12.2 grams of monounsaturated, 42.1 grams of polyunsaturated, 6.7 grams of saturated, and around 42,053 milligrams of the omegas.

These are just two examples sourced from a plethora of options including cashews, macadamias, brazil nuts, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, pine nuts, chia seed, and flaxseed, to mention just a few. When it comes to the keto diet, nuts are a great source of both fat and protein, which are both essential for energy. Try incorporating nuts and seeds in your keto-friendly daily regimen so that they work for you by boosting energy such as these Almond Cashew Coconut Energy Bites, this Adaptogenic Nut-Granola, these Raw Chocolate Energy Bars,

Keep in mind that youll want to avoid sugar to meet keto demands, so for the above-mentioned recipes reduce or remove the use of sugar-filled ingredients such as maple syrup. You can always replace these sugary ingredients with keto-friendly sweet options such as monk fruit sweetener.

Peanut Tofu Stir-Fry/One Green Planet

If youre like me, then integrating fat into your diet is a bit scary. All of our lives weve been warned against fat with most marketing geared towards low-fat options. Healthy, fat-filled oil was one of the more difficult ingredients for me to integrate into my diet based around this fear. Yet, once you start youll never go back! Healthy oils are not only rich and satiating, but they also boost the overall flavor profile of your food, especially when it comes to vegetables. Plus, they offer that second layer of healthy fat via plant-based sources to help you reach ketosis for your keto diet.

As a ketotarian, what oils can you depend on?

First and foremost, youll want to try out extra-virgin coconut oil. Youll hear a lot of controversy around coconut oil due to the fact that 90 percent of the fat content is sourced from saturated fat. Yet, recent studies have started to illuminate that healthily sourced saturated fat may not be as bad for you as they once believed. While saturated fats are commonly found in red meat, whole milk and other whole-milk dairy foods, cheese and many commercially prepared baked goodsunprocessed and healthy saturated fat is found in plant-based sources such as coconut oil. Coconut oil is one of the safest oils to cook due to its stability and its an excellent trade out for butter in a vegan diet. You can use it to bind such as in this Superfood Chocolate Bark recipe or this Banana Bread. Its a great coconut flavoring and fatty addition to energy-boosting smoothies such as this Turmeric Smoothie. Even stir-fry safely to get crispy veggies such as in this Peanut Tofu Stir-Fry, simply swap out sesame oil for coconut!

Next up, extra-virgin olive oil. Youve probably heard a lot about how healthy this oil is for you and, based on the research, its all true! Olive oil is simply squeezed from olives which also happen to be one of the best sources of plant-based fat bottled and sold. Some favor olive oil over coconut due to the fact that it has a lower percentage of saturated fat 13.8 percent with a largely monounsaturated fat content 73 percent while also offering a healthy dose of the omegas and vitamins E and K. This makes it a wonderful fat for plant-based keto diets! On top of that, olive oil is riddled with antioxidants, most notably anti-inflammatory oleocanthal, as well as oleuropein, a substance that protects LDL cholesterol from oxidation. One of the best uses of extra-virgin olive oil is raw. Its got a rich flavor that satiates, boosting flavor palates, which is makes this oil wonderful to use as a dressing like this Apple Cider Dijon Vinaigrette on neutral-flavored salads such as Spinach and Fig Salad, this Eat the Rainbow, or this Lentil Salad with Crunchy Veggies and Herbs.

Three-Year-Old Girl Abducted From Birthday Party in Alabama – The Daily Beast

Posted: October 14, 2019 at 7:46 am

Police are searching for a 3-year-old girl who was abducted from a birthday party on Saturday in Birmingham, Alabama. Kamille Cupcake McKinney vanished while outside with other kids. According to the children, a black male and white female in a dark SUV took McKinney. The vehicle was described as a dark blue or green Toyota Sequoia with damage to the rear bumper. According to an 11-year-old boy at the party, the man got out of the SUV, picked up McKinney, and put her in the vehicle. On Sunday night, police stopped a vehicle matching the description of the Sequoia in Birmingham and took a man into custody for questioning, reports.

Police do not believe the abduction is related to a custodial issue.

I just want my daughter back. Ill pay anything, Ill put up anything, Kamilles father, Dominic McKinney, said. Everybody knows Cupcake and Ill do anything to bring that baby back home. Her father said he has no idea why someone would take his daughter. Shes scared, shes lonely, she doesnt know whats going on. Shes just a baby, he said. She was reportedly wearing a pink shirt with a Minnie Mouse and leopard print design and leopard print shorts, and had yellow, white, and blue bows in her hair at the time she disappeared. Her shoes were found in the parking lot.

An abduction like this, a child just being taken off the street, is in no way common to the city of Birmingham, said Birmingham police Deputy Chief Scott Praytor. Were trying to make sure we get this child back to her family. Police on Sunday added a new tip line for the case. Anyone with information is urged to call 205-297-8413.

Its Fall Camping Season. Make It Healthy and Delicious – Forbes

Posted: October 14, 2019 at 7:46 am


More than three decades ago, my mom took me on my first camping trip. She was celebrating a year of sobriety and this excursion was completely uncharacteristic for my family. We hadnt spent a lot of time together during my childhood, so at eight years old, I was a little nervous about how this was going to go.

On the drive up, she told me that getting outside and being active had given her the space she needed to sort some things out. She explained that life was different in the woods, and that the rest of the world would just melt away. Skeptical, I helped her set up the tent silently pretending not to see all the spiders. Fighting back tears, I wondered what wed even eat while we were out there.

That first night, my mom unpacked what seemed like an entire kitchen. Relief washed over me as we sat by a fire roasting hot dogs, marshmallows and sipping on fresh water. Despite my initial trepidation, food tasted better, laughter felt deeper and sleep came easier than it had in a very long time. It was a pivotal moment in my life and Ill always be grateful for it.

The Benefits of Camping

We spend a lot of time hunched over smartphones and desks these days, so it shouldnt be surprising that stepping away is good for us. Being out in the fresh air, far from the hustle and bustle, can feel like a much-needed physical and mental detox. Along with that sense of wellness, here are some other benefits:

Theres just something about being out in the fresh air that can make you feel more alive. The weather can get a little brisk at night this time of year, but thats what flannel is for!

Food and Drinks Safety

Even if youre completely off the grid and unplugged from society, youve still got to eat. Of course, without modern amenities, food safety for campers can become a concern. You definitely want to make sure you pack the right gear to keep your food and drink safe, because who wants to get sick out in the wilderness?


Its hard to imagine a more iconic brand than Stanley. When my mom unpacked the car all those years ago, it looked like she had raided the Stanley section of an outdoor camping store! Plus, weve all seen the Classic Legendary green vacuum bottle in films and television shows for decades.

You can easily set up base camp with your items stored safely in a cooler and then whip up your meals in some convenient camp cookware. Staying hydrated is easy with the Classic Trigger Action Mug, which is now available in two fall colors (Nightfall and Wine), or Ceramicvac bottle. You can even enjoy fresh brew on your hike with the Classic Travel Mug French Press. Im not a coffee drinker, but I do own the Adventure Happy Hour Cocktail Shaker Set; perfect for when a great day of adventuring calls for a nightcap!

Outdoor Cooking

While simple sandwiches are always a good option, you can use the unique opportunity to make fresh, delicious meals. Preparing something healthy doesnt require a gourmet kitchen you just need the right tools.

Camp Chef

Camp Chef specializes in portable, yet powerful, cooking gear for outdoor enthusiasts. They carry flat grills, camp stoves, fire pits, smokers, portable ovens and so much more. Cooking with cast iron even has health benefits, as I learned years ago after being encouraged to use it by my doctor following an anemia diagnosis.

Recently, a group of us headed to Jackson Hole for a few days and we used the Mini Dutch Oven to make our own chili a great option for people with individual preferences and dietary needs. At less than $25 its a great option because its affordable and versatile use it for stew, hot dogs and beans, or even a peach cobbler!

A Better Hot Dog

It takes a little more planning to prepare food while camping, so why not make it worth the effort? Ill admit that we keep things simple for breakfast when were on the go, but even if its just for one meal, well splurge on something extra special.

If youre a regular reader, youll know that I typically follow a keto diet. While its possible to be vegan or vegetarian on keto, most of us are heavy meat eaters. Whenever I can, I try to buy products that are as natural as possible, which is why Ive had KC Cattle Company on my radar for a while.

KC Cattle Company

This veteran-owned butcher shop carries incredible wagyu meat; from filet mignon and brisket to summer sausage and short ribs. People love to roast hot dogs while camping, and KC Cattle Companys uncured wagyu hot dogs can really elevate the experience. They contain no added nitrites and come fully cooked, making them an incredibly tasty and healthy choice for a weekend out in nature.

Ill always be grateful for that very first camping trip, but Ill readily admit that Im more of a glamping person and hypervigilant about food safety. When Im confident about my equipment and the food Ive packed, it helps me relax so I can focus on more important things like running from spiders in my tent. So gear up and hit the great outdoors one last time this camping season!

Justice Department Asks Appeals Court to Block Release of Trump Tax Returns – The Daily Beast

Posted: October 14, 2019 at 7:46 am

The Justice Department filed a brief on Friday asking a federal appeals court to block the release of President Trump's tax returns to the Manhattan district attorney's office, claiming that local prosecutors needed to meet a high legal threshold before investigating Trump. According to The New York Times, the department appeared to side with the arguments made in Trumps lawsuit seeking to block the release of the tax returns, writing that the lawsuit had raised a number of significant constitutional issues that potentially implicate the interests of the United States. The department also argued against local prosecutors investigating a sitting president, and said avoiding state criminal procedures while Trump was in office would not place him above the law. Rather, it merely postpones initiation of any potential criminal prosecution until his term of office ends.

Earlier this week, U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero ruled that Trump's tax returns could be released to Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr., who subpoenaed accounting firm Mazars USA for Trump's personal and corporate financial documents dating back to 2011. Judge Marrero rejected Trump's legal argument, which posited that the Constitution prevented current presidents from being criminally investigated by local prosecutors like Vance.

Al Qaeda Underwear Bomb Maker Died in US Operation Two Years Ago: White House – The Daily Beast

Posted: October 14, 2019 at 7:45 am

The maker of an underwear bomb that was worn by a terrorist on a Detroit-bound Christmas Day flight in 2009 has been killed, the White House confirmed Thursday. In a statement, the White House said senior al Qaeda bomb maker and terror coordinator Ibrahim al-Asiri was killed two years ago during a U.S. operation in Yemen. The Trump administration also said Al-Asiri was behind three other failed or foiled bombing attempts: a printer cartridge bomb plot in 2010, a 2012 bomb that was meant to be used against a passenger aircraft, and a device in the attempted assassination of the former crown prince of Saudi Arabia.

Al-Asiris death significantly handicapped al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, the statement read. The United States will continue to hunt down terrorists like al-Asiri until they no longer pose a threat to our great Nation. According to USA Today, al-Asiris device was worn in 23-year-old Umar Farouk Abdulmutallabs underwear and it was supposed to detonate over U.S. soil. Abdulmutallab is reportedly serving a life sentence in a maximum security Colorado prison after pleading guilty to terrorism charges.

Cut out coffee to minimise risk of losing baby, pregnant women told – The Times

Posted: October 14, 2019 at 7:45 am

NHS guidelines recommend that pregnant women drink the equivalent of two cups of instant coffee a dayGETTY IMAGES

Women who are trying to conceive or are pregnant, particularly during the first eight weeks, should cut out caffeine entirely to minimise the risk of losing their baby, according to research to be presented this week.

Guidelines from the NHS and in the US recommend pregnant women limit the caffeine they drink to 200 milligrams a day, equivalent to two mugs of instant coffee.

Researchers at the US National Institutes of Health will present a study to the American Society for Reproductive Medicines (ASRM) congress in Philadelphia arguing that even this is too much and that caffeine should be eliminated entirely.

The team found: Any level of caffeine intake during pregnancy may increase risk of pregnancy loss, particularly in the first eight weeks gestation. Women
