Weekly Health Quiz: Concussions, Hydration and Diabetes

1 Which of the following has been shown to increase digestive-resistant starch in foods like bread, rice, pasta and potatoes?

  • Overcooking and/or deep browning
  • Undercooking
  • Cooking, refrigerating overnight, then reheating

    High net-carb foods such as potatoes, rice, bread and pasta become more digestive-resistant when cooked, cooled and reheated. Learn more.

  • None of the above, you can't make resistant starch from carbs and anyone who states otherwise is promoting a dangerous concept

2 Which farm animal is best suited to serving as the foundation for a new agroecological and agroforestry model, capable of reforesting and restoring large amounts of conventionally farmed and degenerated landscapes?

  • Chickens

    Poultry production offers the shortest economic cycle and lowest up-front investment cost, and is easily scalable. Chickens can also serve as the foundation for a massive new agroecological and agroforestry model, capable of reforesting and restoring large amounts of conventionally farmed and degenerated landscapes. Learn more.

  • Cattle
  • Bison
  • Goats

3 Which of the following conveniences now poses one of the most severe threats to environmental and human health?

  • Automobiles
  • Nitrogen fertilizers
  • Plastics

    Discarded plastic — both large and microscopic — circles the globe, choking our oceans and harming wildlife, ultimately finding its way onto your plate and into your body. A number of studies have now revealed we are both eating and drinking microplastic particles on a regular basis. Learn more.

  • Cement

4 Low-grade accumulation of concussions over time accelerates the process of Alzheimer's. Recent research also shows even a single concussion increases your risk of which disease?

  • Meningitis
  • Parkinson's

    According to recent research, even a single concussion could increase your risk for Parkinson's by 56 to 83 percent, depending on the severity of the injury. Learn more.

  • Brain cancer
  • Seizures

5 Which of the following is a major underlying cause of heart attacks?

  • High cholesterol levels
  • Insufficient glucose
  • Chronically low parasympathetic nervous system activity

    While conventional medicine still focuses on cholesterol and the plaque buildup in your arteries, compelling evidence suggests three major underlying causes of heart attacks are mitochondrial dysfunction, impaired microcirculation to your heart and chronically suppressed parasympathetic nervous system activity. Learn more.

  • Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD)

6 Which of the following supplements has very similar effects as the drug metformin, and is a safer, and perhaps even more effective, alternative for those using metformin for Type 2 diabetes treatment and/or antiaging purposes?

  • Berberine

    Diabetics taking metformin tend to live longer than those taking other diabetes drugs. Some nondiabetic people take metformin just for its potential antiaging benefits. While it's among the least hazardous drugs out there, the supplement berberine has many of the same effects, and is likely a safer and likely better alternative. Learn more.

  • Quercetin
  • Astaxanthin
  • Rhodiola

7 To ensure proper hydration, you need to:

  • Drink eight glasses of water per day and more if you are in a hot environment and/or exercising
  • Avoid tea and coffee
  • Improve electrical charges across your cellular membranes to get water inside your cells

    Proper hydration is not simply infusing your body with water. More specifically, it's about getting the water inside your cells. To do that, you need to improve the electrical charges across your cellular membranes. Learn more.
