Resistant starch (i.e. eating lots of beans) may play a promising role in the prevention and treatment of obesity (http://1.usa.gov/1QcYKoW). The beneficial short chain fatty acids made in the colon from these starches may block some of the negative effects of protein metabolism. Click to see video:

Beans for breakfast! Share your breakfast bean recipes!
Sulfur dioxide preservatives in dried fruit, sulfites in wine, and the putrefaction of undigested animal protein in the colon can release hydrogen sulfide, the rotten egg gas associated with inflammatory bowel disease.

lentils and quinoa cooked in veggie broth with sausage-type seasoning is pretty good.

Potassium-rich foods may improve artery function (http://1.usa.gov/1MG92Hk), which may not be good news for the 98% Americans who eat potassium deficient diets. Click to see video:

Greens, beans, dates--what are your favorite potassium-rich foods? HINT: bananas aren't in the top 50!
Less than 2% of Americans achieve even the recommended minimum adequate intake of potassium due primarily to inadequate plant food intake.

How many years does exercise add to our life?
For centuries explorers have searched for the legendary Fountain of Youth, that secret spring with water that guarantees perpetual youth. It was Mark Twain who noted that “life would be infinitely happier if only we could be born at the age of 80 and gradually approach 18.” But is this

Aside from all the other beneficial nutrients in high-fiber foods such as fruit, beans, whole grains, and vegetables, the fiber content appears independently associated with lower blood pressure (http://1.usa.gov/1kjwl3M). How might fiber-rich flaxseeds help reduce high blood pressure? Click to see video:

What is your favorite high-fiber food?
Extraordinary results reported in a rare example of a double-blinded, placebo-controlled, randomized trial of a dietary intervention (flaxseeds) to combat one of our leading killers, high blood pressure.
