Mediterranean Diet Helps Heart Patients

Even after you already have a heart condition the Mediterranean diet is still good for you: 'Mediterranean' diet linked to lower risk of heart attacks & strokes in heart patients.

Eat more fruits and vegetables. Eat more whole grain and less refined grain foods.

Something worth noting here: The unhealthy majority, by preferring unhealthy foods, reduce the options for healthier eating for the rest of us in restaurants. If more people shifted toward a preference for whole grains then we'd have more whole grain choices when eating out. As it stands now in many restaurants, especially fast food restaurants, there are no whole grain choices.

Does anyone come across whole grain pasta or whole grain pancakes or pastry when eating out at a major chain? Or are these choices only found in specialty local restaurants in a small number of communities?

High levels of lycopene have a correlation with a 75% reduced alzheimer's risk. High levels of luteine/zeaxanthin reduce it by about 60%.

Fruits and vegetables are mighty good for you!

Grains, I'm not so sure about lately...
