DESCRIPTION: Legumes such as lentils, chickpeas, beans and split peas may reduce cholesterol so much that consumers may be able to get off their cholesterol-lowering statin drugs, but to profoundly alter heart disease risk we may have to more profoundly alter our diet.
Beans dips like hummus are among my favorite go-to snacks. I like to dip snap peas and red bell pepper slices in them. I’d love to hear everyone’s favorite recipe. You show me yours and I’ll show you mine 🙂

Beans can help us live longer (Increased Lifespan from Beans http://nutritionfacts.org/video/increased-lifespan-from-beans/), control our blood sugars (Beans and the Second Meal Effect http://nutritionfacts.org/video/beans-and-the-second-meal-effect/), and help prevent and treat diabetes (Preventing Prediabetes By Eating More http://www.nutritionfacts.org/video/preventing-prediabetes-by-eating-more/ and Diabetics Should Take Their Pulses http://www.nutritionfacts.org/video/diabetics-should-take-their-pulses/).
What about the purported “anti-nutrient” phytates in beans? You mean the Phytates for the Prevention of Cancer (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/phytates-for-the-prevention-of-cancer/), the Phytates for Rehabilitating Cancer Cells (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/phytates-for-rehabilitating-cancer-cells/), and the Phytates for the Treatment of Cancer? (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/phytates-for-the-treatment-of-cancer/) Phytate-containing foods may also help protect our bones (Phytates for the Prevention of Osteoporosis http://nutritionfacts.org/video/phytates-for-the-prevention-of-osteoporosis/).
Why not just take cholesterol pills every day for the rest of our life?
