The top ten super foods for preventing chronic disease

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

Bonnie C. Minsky discusses the benefits of eating 10 super foods: rice, cruciferous vegetables, pomegranates, cinnamon, avocados, onions, Wild Pacific salmon, nuts and seeds, turmeric and algae. Rice, which is alkalizing, is also gluten-free and has a low-allergy effect. Cruciferous vegetables help the body produce enzymes which detoxify cancer-causing chemicals in the body. The antioxidants in pomegranates help prevent cancer, heart disease and strokes. Cinnamon regulates blood sugar and cholesterol levels. The lutein in avocados benefits eyesight. The omega 2 fats prevent heart disease and diabetes. Heart disease can be reduced by eating an ounce of nuts and seeds daily. Turmeric helps destroy cancer cells and also has antibiotic and antifungal properties. Algae boosts the immune system.
