Health foods recommended by US Time magazine
By Janice M.Horowitz        

        Tomatoes    Several studies have linked the cooked tomatoes in ketchup, soups and sauces to a reduced risk of prostate cancer and other cancers of the digestive tract. Tomatoes contain lycopene, probably the most powerful antioxidant among the carotenoids, the compounds that turn fruits and veggies deep orange.

Spinach      Spinach is loaded with iron and folate, a B vitamin considered so important that it is now routinely added to flour. Folate not only prevents neural-tube defects in babies but also lowers blood levels of homocysteine, anamino acid that irritates blood vessels and is linked to heart disease.

health foods

Red Wine       The skins of the grapes used to make red wine contain supercharged antioxidants known as polyphenols, including one called resveratrol, which boosts HDL cholesterol ( the good kind) . Polyphenols, according to the latest research, may also inhibit the production of endothelin ,a peptide that contributes to hardening of the arteries.

Nuts      The types of fat found in nuts are the good fats. When  eaten instead of junk food high in saturated fats (like potato  chips and doughnuts) , nuts lower blood levels of triglycerides and LDL 


( bad) cholesterol while raising HDL (good) cholesterol -- a perfect formula for preventing heart disease. Nuts provide another benefit: they contain vitamin E, a potent antioxidant that may help ward off heart disease and cancer .

Broccoli           Broccoli boasts a fistful of hytochemicals, including sulforaphane and in dole-3-carbinol, that may detoxify cancer-causing substances before they have a chance to cause harm. In women, in dole-3-carbinol may, turn the estrogen associated with breast cancer into a more benign form.

Oats        Oats contain beta-glucan, a spongy, soluble fiber that mops up the precursors of cholesterol in the intestines and whisks them out of the body. New evidence suggests that oats may also help lower blood pressure in hypertensive patients.

Salmon         Salmon boast omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s prevent platelets in the  blood from clumping together. They also drive down triglycerides and LDL ( bad) cholesterol. Even more tantalizing, omega-3s interact with the fatty layers that surround brain cells.            

green tea


         Green Tea     Green tea is loaded with polyphenols , a class of poytochemicals with 100 times the antioxidant punch of vitamin C.  Laboratory experiments suggest that one group of polyphenols in green tea called catechins may inhibit  the growth of new blood      vessels, which some scientists think may help prevent cancer by depriving early tumors of nourishment. Catechins may also prevent DNA  damage caused by carcinogens. Drinking green tea daily can lower the risk of stomach, esophageal and liver cancers. Swishing green tea around the mouth may inhibit cavity-causing bacteria. Applied to the skin of laboratory mice, it also seems to reduce the incidence of skin cancer .

Blueberries   The most powerful health-promoting compounds in blue berries are anthocyanins. Besides combatting the free-radical damage linked to heart disease and cancer ,anthocyanins may boost brainpower. Another blueberry benefit:like cranberries,      they seem to fight off utinary-tract infections by preventing E. coli bacteria from adhering to the bladder wall.
