Powell, Simpson settle case with nutrition company | Reuters

Even if you have a lot of other priorities for instance, sports, extracurricular activities, etc., still you need to complete a senior project to graduate successfully

KINGSTONJamaican sprinters Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson have settled a legal case with a nutrition company that sold the supplement Epiphany D1 which contained the banned substance oxilofrine, their management company said on Tuesday.

Two years after testing positive for the stimulant, Powell and Simpson have reached an out-of-court settlement with Dynamic Life Nutrition LLC, according to a news release.

Details of the settlement were not disclosed. Efforts to contact the supplement company for independent confirmation were unsuccessful.

The Jamaican pair tested positive for oxilofrine in June 2013 and got 18-month bans which were later reduced on appeal to six months by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Powell and Simpson, both Olympic relay champions, sued the company for US$8 million after independent laboratory tests revealed that there were "ingredients in the product (Epiphany D1) that were not listed on the label".

Despite the settlement, Powell, 32, remains disappointed by what he says is the damage done to his reputation by the positive test.

"There is no way to really explain the kind of damage a ban has on an athlete's reputation," said the former world record holder in the 100 meters. "There's no doubt that we're going to continue the fight to repair it and regain the trust of my fans and fans of the sport."

Simpson, a three-time Olympian, added that while the process had been time consuming it had not affected them on the track and they were now cautious on what they took.

"We have a very capable team, and both of us are now extra careful about our diets and supplement regimen," she said.

The sprinters had testified in an anti-doping disciplinary hearing in Jamaica and a CAS appeal that they took Epiphany D1 as part of their training regimen, but later found out that the supplement contained the banned stimulant oxilofrine.

Powell and Simpson faced a lengthy anti-doping hearing in Jamaica, forcing them to miss the 2013 world championships in Moscow, before both were suspended from athletics for 18 months.

Their sanctions were later cut to six months after CAS found they did not know the stimulant was present in Epiphany D1.

Epiphany D1 has since been placed on the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) high risk supplement list, warning athletes to avoid the product.

Does microwaving food remove its nutritional value?

Even if you have a lot of other priorities for instance, sports, extracurricular activities, etc., still you need to complete a senior project to graduate successfully

Story highlightsMicrowaving is near the top of the list for nutritionally sound food preparationUsing too much water can leach vitamins and minerals out of foodCover food tightly to create a steam-cook environmentThe rumor: Zapping food in a microwave leaches out key nutrients

We've all heard about how microwaving food removes some nutritional value, but is it true? Is something bad happening to our food behind that microwave glass?

The verdict: If you do it right, cooking food in the microwave is one of the best ways to retain your food's vitamins and minerals

There are dangers to microwaving your food. You could get scalded, for one. If you use the wrong kind of plastic (hint: one that doesn't say "microwave safe"), unhealthy chemicals could seep into your food.

But if you're concerned about getting the most nutrition out of your eats, microwaving is a safe bet. In fact, it's near the top of the list for nutritionally sound food-preparation methods. If you use your microwave with a small amount of water to essentially steam food from the inside, you'll retain more vitamins and minerals than with almost any other cooking method.

upwave: Cook yourself sexy

"Whenever you cook food, you'll have some loss of nutrients," says registered dietician and certified food scientist Catherine Adams Hutt. "The best cooking method for retaining nutrients is one that cooks quickly, exposes food to heat for the smallest amount of time and uses only a minimal amount of liquid."

Guess what? Microwave cooking does that.

Consider spinach. Boil it on the stove, and it can lose up to 70% of its folic acid. Microwave it with just a little water, and you'll retain nearly all its folic acid. Cooking bacon on a griddle until it's crispy (yum) can create nitrosamines, while microwaving bacon creates far fewer of these cancer-promoting chemicals.

upwave: Do microwaves cause cancer?

Of course, you can mess microwaving up. Dump your veggies in a bunch of water and overcook them, and you'll leach out plenty of nutrition. "When you cook food in a microwave, cover it tightly, creating an efficient steam environment," advises Hutt.

Steaming over a stovetop is just as good, though. In some cases, it may even be better: One small study found that steamed broccoli retained more of its cancer-fighting sulforaphane than microwaved broccoli.

But in most cases, using your microwave to cook food, if it's covered tightly in a microwave-safe container with a minimal amount of liquid, is a nutritional win.

In fact, it can even enhance the nutrition of some foods. It makes the carotenoids in tomatoes and carrots more available to our bodies, for example. It makes the biotin in eggs digestible. And heat kills bacteria in food that can make us sick.

"From a safety standpoint," says Hutt, "you don't want to be eating raw chicken."

upwave: Get dangerous germs out of your home

So go ahead and use that microwave. It's a quick way to essentially steam food from the inside out. You won't get the aromas that baking or roasting provides, but if you do it right, with just a little bit of water in a tightly-closed microwave-safe container, you'll be very well nourished.
