What we use and do in our daily lives can cause many diseases. Materials that make our lives easier can cause cancer. It is stated at every opportunity how dangerous plastics are for the environment and health. Dr. Mevra Aydın Çil said, “One of the most important mistakes we make is that we can use yoghurt and cheese containers later. We should avoid using them. Because the substances we call endocrine disruptors can pass into the body and cause many endocrine-related diseases, including various endocrine cancers. Therefore, please, but please let’s not use these containers in our home. “Plastic milk and yoghurt containers purchased should not be used for food storage later on,” he said. Dr. Mevra Aydın Çil gave warnings by stating the wrong information about nutrition.
POINTS TO BE CONSIDERED IN NUTRITION
ALL DISEASES ARE RELATED TO NUTRITION
“The energy and nutrients taken must be used appropriately in the body. If the vitamins and minerals we take are not used properly in our body, then we cannot talk about a healthy diet here. Today, almost all chronic non-communicable diseases are basically related to nutrition. Obesity and diabetes are the leading ones. Hypertension, heart diseases, vitamin and mineral deficiency diseases, namely anemia, rickets, osteoporosis, goiter diseases, some types of cancer and food allergies are diseases caused by nutrition.
BALANCED NUTRITION IS IMPORTANT TO PREVENT DISEASES
Adequate and balanced nutrition is the basis for the protection of health and the prevention of diseases. The point we need to pay attention to here is that tired, unwilling and sick individuals who are not well developed mentally and physically due to inadequate and unbalanced nutrition do not create power and strength for the society, but only a burden.
YOGURA WATER SHOULD NOT BE DISPOSED
Explaining the importance of milk in nutrition and drawing attention to some issues, Dr. Çil said, “Prefer pasteurized or UHT (long-life milk) milk. We should not buy street milk sold by people whose source you do not know and whom you do not know. Straining the water of the yogurt or discarding the water formed during the holding causes vitamin loss. The greenish water of the yogurt, which is rich in vitamin B2, should not be thrown away, should be evaluated.
TARHANA SHOULD NOT BE DRY IN THE SUN
It should be used for leavening bread, making biscuits, pastries and soups. Before I became a dietitian, my mother used to throw out sugar when making milk desserts, but after I became a dietitian, sugar should be added after boiling the milk so that the quality does not decrease. You know, tarhana is in this group because it contains yoghurt. Tarhana should definitely not be left in the sun. When dried in the sun, it loses its nutritional value again. It should be dried in a cool place with wind, away from direct sun.
PURCHASED CONTAINERS MUST NOT BE USED FOR STORAGE
Stating that one of the most important mistakes made in homes is the use of yogurt and cheese containers as storage containers, Dr. Çil said, “We should avoid using them. Because substances that we call endocrine disruptors can pass into the body and cause many endocrine-related diseases, including various endocrine cancers. Therefore, please, but please do not use these containers in our homes. Plastic milk and yogurt containers purchased are used for food storage later on. should not be used,” he said.
