Better than Matcha, tastes like fruit punch, and your kids will love it! Thanks Dr. Greger. You're the best!
The antioxidant content of a number of popular beverages is compared: black tea, coffee, Coke, espresso, grape juice, green tea, hibiscus (Jamaica flower) tea, milk, Pepsi, Red Bull, red tea, red wine, and white wine. Which beats out even powdered (matcha) green tea?

Go nuts about nuts!  
Reduce the risk of major chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes.

Lower cholesterol and oxidation, and improve our arterial function and blood sugar levels.

As for weight gain, ..." studies have associated nut consumption with a slimmer waist, less weight gain, and lower risk of obesity. If we look at all the studies put together, it’s pretty much a wash. Diets enriched with nuts do not seem to affect body weight, body mass index, or waist circumference much at all."
May 14, 2015 08:00 am | Michael Greger M.D.. Nuts May Extend Your Lifespan By About 2 years. Nuts May Help Prevent Death We've known that increased nut consumption has been associated with a reduced risk of major chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes.

A Hearty Satisfying Breakfast for This New Vegan
I woke up hungry and wanted to eat breakfast right way, as soon as I washed and dressed.   It was so easy to fix a wonderful breakfast, delicious and filling and so nutritious too.   I put a third of a cup of steel cut rolled oats in a bowl, and added boili...

Cholesterol appears to stimulate the growth of human breast cancer cells. Dietary factors that help lower cholesterol may be important for reducing breast cancer risk (http://1.usa.gov/1Jv36o2). Learn how cancer cells can take advantage of cholesterol. Click to see video:
Cholesterol appears to stimulate the growth of human breast cancer cells, which may explain why phytosterol-rich foods such as pumpkin seeds are associated with reduced breast cancer risk.

We're talking about moderate exercise here.   That means walking, yoga, bicycling, swimming, and walking stair, walking around the house, and the office counts too.  Just measure to not cheat yourself of a free tonic for good living. 

"Exercising regularly isn't just about living longer, it decreases our risk of developing dementia. You'll not only be healthier, you'll feel healthier. Your immune system will be stronger, you'll sleep better, you'll have more energy, you'll speed up your metabolism, you'll work off the stress in your life and you'll improve your mood just by moving our bodies."
Three interventions that may cut one's risk in half of dying from our #1 killer.

How did I get to this point in time, where I am now in action discoving how to thrive as a vegan?
It's amazing to me how little time it is taking to notice significant changes in my body, my mood, and my mind, and the way I feel since we stopped eating meat and dairy.   I have been suffering from sore joints in my hands and my legs and feet for a few ye...

It's hard to reason against the findings presented here, that the most effective tool against the vast majority of the top 15 leading causes of death in this Country is a plant based diet (not a vegan  junk food diet but fresh produce, legumes, nuts and seeds, and elimination of animal based foods).  

So most people who might view this video and or read the transcript, will likely ignore it, unless they are already believers who are looking to arm themselves with information to persuade their beloved friends and family. 

But you won't hear it from any National Nutritional Guideline Reports because such a recommendation would be financially devastating to too many lucrative industries, and their representatives sit on the boards that draw up the recommendations we do receive.
Death in America is largely a foodborne illness. Focusing on studies published just over the last year in peer-reviewed scientific medical journals, Dr. Greger offers practical advice on how best to feed ourselves and our families to prevent, treat, and even reverse many of the top 15 killers in the United States.

This is my favorite market in town since we moved to West Hills from Whittier. I find the fruits, and vegetables to be fresh and beautiful and bountiful and the prices fair and affordable. I find the variety of chilies we like, and today I bought their store made corn and flour tortillas. The corn tortillas were still warm from their freshness and the flour tortillas, I bought in the burrito size, are delicious. I love the quality of the beets, eggplant, red chard, carrots, papaya, bananas and more, all staples we consume, and priced so reasonably. And if you love traditional Mexican fare, the fresh cheese, the pork chicharrones, the fresh salsas are good quality.
