DESCRIPTION: One of the ways plants help keep platelets in their place may be their aspirin content. See Aspirin Levels in Plant Foods (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/aspirin-levels-in-plant-foods/). Why would a plant make a human drug? It’s so cool, check out Appropriating Plant Defenses (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/appropriating-plant-defenses/).
Is the Standard American Diet really so bad that we could save 100,000 people by just getting up to minimum fruit and veggie recommendations? Even cynics might be surprised: Nation’s Diet in Crisis (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/nations-diet-in-crisis/). Even more plants may cut deaths even more, though. See One in a Thousand: Ending the Heart Disease Epidemic (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/one-in-a-thousand-ending-the-heart-disease-epidemic/).
For more on lowering cholesterol see my video Trans Fat, Saturated Fat, and Cholesterol: Tolerable Upper Intake of Zero (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/trans-fat-saturated-fat-and-cholesterol-tolerable-upper-intake-of-zero/). And it’s never too early to start eating healthier. Check out: Heart Disease Starts in Childhood (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/heart-disease-starts-in-childhood/). Heart disease may be a choice. See: Cavities and Coronaries: Our Choice (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/cavities-and-coronaries-our-choice/).
Berries are the healthiest fruits, shown to maintain our brain power (How to Slow Brain Aging By Two Years http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-to-slow-brain-aging-by-two-years/) and improve our immune function (Boosting Natural Killer Cell Activity http://nutritionfacts.org/video/boosting-natural-killer-cell-activity/). That’s one of the reasons we want to eat Antioxidant Rich Foods With Every Meal (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/antioxidant-rich-foods-with-every-meal/).
