"For the next eight weeks they were randomized to continue the control diet, eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, or eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables but reduced in saturated and total fats. Sodium intake and body weight were maintained at constant levels. The experimental diets were associated with a lowering of blood pressure, particularly in the subjects whose blood pressures were in the upper tertile at inception of the cohort."

"Juices Juices extracted from plants, fruits, vegetables or herbs are extremely rich in vitamins, natural sugars, minerals, enzymes and trace elements. Very few other foods are as good for us as the raw juices of fruits or vegetables. They are assimilated directly from the stomach into the bloodstream without undue strain on the digestive system. They aid the body in purifying the blood, help in neutralising waste products, assist in building new tissue and have a revitalising and rejuvenating effect on the body's organs and glands."

"Dessert Fresh fruits, stewed fruits, Jell-O. Eggs Poached or boiled eggs, not fried; one a day. Fat Cold-pressed oils, preferably safflower or soya oil; soya-lecithin spread. Fish White-flesh fish only (very fresh). Fruits Fresh fruits only: apples, pears, apricots, bananas, cherries, currants, grapes, guava, mangos, melon, nectarines, papaya, peaches, plums, ripe oranges, quince, tangerines, avocados, ripe pineapple. Following dried fruits (unsulfured) can be stewed: apples, apricots, dates, figs, prunes, peaches, pears, plums, raisins. Juices Only fresh juices."

"For three weeks they were fed an average American diet, low in fruits and vegetables. For the next eight weeks they were randomized to continue the control diet, eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, or a diet rich in fruits and vegetables but reduced in saturated and total fats. Sodium intake and body weight were maintained at constant levels. The experimental diets were associated with a lowering of blood pressure, particularly in subjects whose blood pressures were in the upper range."

"The raw foods people said that because we evolved from apes we should be eating only raw vegetables and fruits. The blood-type people said that your diet should be designed to work with and support the characteristics of your blood group. Dr. Max Gerson claimed you have to load your body with vitamins from organic fruits and vegetables and detoxify your body with enemas. Acupuncturists declared that your governor meridian had excess yin. Psychologists thought you are refusing to let go of your past."

"Start a Local Community Garden or Farmer's Market People are always talking about the importance of buying locally grown fruits and vegetables, and I agree that local food is far healthier than food that has been transported in planes and trucks and been stripped of many of its nutrients in the process. Unfortunately, in many communities buying locally just isn't a realistic option yet. In small towns all over the country, people just don't have access to farmer's markets. And even if they do, the items on sale—soaps, flowers, baked goods—can be both expensive and nonessential."

"Pomegranate This unusual, thick-skinned fruit with its hundreds of red seeds provides a juice that contains levels of phytochemicals/ antioxidants that are much higher than in the juice of other fruits. The phytochemicals in pomegranates, called punicalagins, have been shown in a number of experimental studies to support optimal blood pressure levels, enhance antioxidant levels, and decrease the risk of vascular endothelial damage associated with diabetes."

"Department of Agriculture for the period 1963 to 1992, the vitamin and mineral content of fruits and vegetables declined dramatically: for example, calcium declined by 30 percent, iron by 32 percent, and magnesium by 21 percent in selected crops. America is a fast-food nation. If we aren't picking it up at a drive-through window, we're nuking it in a microwave. We cook fast, eat fast, live fast, and are on the fast track for dying due to diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. Supplements are not a panacea for a nutritionally deficient diet."

"Polyphenols give some flowers, vegetables, and fruits their color and are excellent sources of antioxidants. They may also have some anticancer properties. postprandial blood glucose: A blood sample taken one to two hours after eating to identify the amount of glucose in the blood, retinopathy: A disease of the small blood vessels in the retina of the eye. sulfonylureas: A class of oral medications used to treat high blood glucose levels. They achieve this by helping the pancreas make more insulin and by helping the body make optimal use of the insulin it does make."

"PHASE ONE - TOOLS, RECIPES & MEAL PLANS Cooking for phase One The delicious recipes in Phase One begin to put the spotlight on nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables. Compared to the standard diet, animal products start to take a back seat. This may be an opportunity for you to explore some new vegetables, beans, and grains. Braised Bok Choy, which is paired with a Spiced Tilapia, is a simple, nutrient-dense recipe that may expose you to new flavors. At the start, you will be eating less red meat and cheese and the animal products you do eat will be lower in fat."

"Only the more expensive, high-powered blenders will be able to make fruit sorbets from frozen fruits and creamy dressings and dips from nuts and seeds. They can also blend vegetables effortlessly for your fruit or green smoothies. It is a good investment that will last a lifetime. Cooking soups and stews with a pressure cooker is helpful because it produces healthy and tasty food fast. You can prepare a soup or bean dish in less than half the time. CONSIDERING CALORIES: Try to let hunger be your guide to determine the right amount of calories."

"Try to eat some berries, cherries or other high-nutrient fruits regularly. 7. Have some fresh squeezed vegetable juice either by itself or part of your soup base on most days. 8. Measure and control the type and amount of animal products consumed. Do not eat more than one serving of animal products a day and limit the size of the portion so it is under five ounces. That means no larger than the size of a deck of cards. Then as you move forward and learn the recipes here try to move up to the next phase of nutritional excellence by reducing animal products further."

"Keep lots of frozen fruits and vegetables and pre-washed fresh items in your home. • Have cooked greens or soups with greens at every lunch and dinner. • Don't eat after 8:00 p.m. • Have a fruit sorbet or fruit desert after dinner and then clean the kitchen, clean your teeth, and end eating for the day. Eliminate Temptation It is best if you can get rid of all the unhealthy food in your kitchen. If it's not in the house, you won't have to fight unnecessary temptation and you will not be faced with the constant decision of whether or not to eat it."

"Kids' immune systems are suppressed—you can't have normal immune function on a diet with so much processed foods and animal products and a diet so low in fruits and vegetables and beans and nuts and seeds. You can't expose the body to so many immune-stimulating challenges and not expect to have some damages in the DNA." Toxic Triggers and Childhood Cancer I had many different motivations for founding my environmental center, but fighting childhood cancer was always at the top of my list."

"The human body can thrive on fruits and vegetables that are grown on vital rich soil but not on soil that is artificially pumped up with chemicals." Thus today hardly anyone can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his or her body with the mineral salts required for good health. It is crucial that doctors and parents recognize that from poor soil comes poor food, deficient in minerals and vitamins Dr. Nan Kathryn Fuchs, author of The Nutrition Detective, says that, "Our diets today are very different from those of our ancestors though our bodies remain similar."

"To help you prioritize, the Environmental Working Group has come up with a list of the twelve most important fruits and vegetables to buy organic. These rankings take into account the high pesticide residue levels found on the conventional versions. The produce items with the highest levels of pesticides are: 1. Apples 2. Bell peppers 3. Celery 4. Cherries 5. Grapes (imported) 6. Nectarines 7. Peaches 8. Pears 9. Potatoes 10. Red raspberries 11. Spinach 12. Strawberries You can find a printable wallet guide of this list at www.foodnews.org/ walletguide.php."

"He developed allergic reactions to fruits, and had to be hospitalized. His mother was extremely stressed and overwhelmed at that point. He alternated from hyperactive-impulsive behavior to spaced-out behavior, with decreased eye contact and decreased responsiveness. He had speech delay and fine motor delay, as well as some gross motor delay. He had been diagnosed with ADHD by his pediatrician but had never seen a developmental pediatrician or a pediatric neurologist."

"Forces such as monoculture of crops, hybridization, and intense fertilization have resulted in devitalized grains, fruits, and vegetables that often look large, glossy, and healthy, but are in reality only a few steps above junk food. Another reason that some experts are also critical of people taking relatively large amounts of supplements is because of the fact that excessive amounts of some supplements may harm health. This is a reasonable concern, but it is very limited in scope. Vitamin A and vitamin D can be toxic if taken in extremely high amounts, but illness due to this is very rare."

"Blackberries, black raspberries, red raspberries, blueberries, red currants, dewberries, figs, dried grapes, purple gooseberries, kiwi, lemon peel, lime peel, orange peel, rhubarb, strawberries, tangerines, any juice made from these fruits. High-oxalate breads and starches. Fig Newtons, fruit cake, graham crackers, grits, white com, kamut, marmalade, soybean crackers, wheat germ. High-oxalate vegetables."

"Very sweet fruits (melons and raisins). 14. Potatoes, boiled. 15. Refined breakfast cereals. 16. Honey. 17. Rice cereals. 18. Rice pasta, rice cakes, and instant rice. 19. Table sugar, or pure-sugar candies, with no nuts or fat added. The information was extrapolated from various sources. To feel good on the anti-hypoglycemia diet, your child will simply need to focus on protein-rich, high-fiber foods that are slowly digested, relatively low in carbohydrate calories, and full of nutrients."

"This method of evaluation is found by looking at the "fruits" of those teachings: Do they vanquish fear and promote compassion? Do they increase morality and loving-kindness? Do they result in evolution? This test of "knowing them by their fruits" can serve as the Ockhams razor of spirituality; it provides a simple and rock-solid way of effectively evaluating all forms of spiritual teaching and practice."

"Indeed, many fruits and vegetables are known to help prevent carcinogenesis, so it isn't too surprising that a natural vegetable supplement like Natural Astaxanthin might have these same properties (Wargovich, M, 1997, Potter, J, 1997 and Eastwood, M, 1999). And because Natural Astaxanthin is a concentrated vegetable extract, it wouldn't be surprising if it worked much better than fruits and vegetables."

"By glancing over your notes, you can determine whether your child really is getting a balanced, healthy diet rich in fruits, veggies, whole grains, nuts, and seeds. You'll be surprised by how this journal helps to keep your child on the right track. In the years to come, when your kids get old enough, they can help you take notes—by writing down what they ate at school, how they felt about their days, and that sort of thing. In fact, even before they've learned to write, kids can talk to you about their daily experiences."

"The doctor spends the next ten minutes talking to her about making dietary changes, eating more fruits and vegetables, as well as foods high in antioxidants, B vitamins, and fish, which is high in omega-3 fatty acids that also seem to have cardio-protective benefits in addition to cognitive ones. He explains the importance of diet in keeping cholesterol and blood pressure low and reducing the risk for diabetes. "But what's even more important than what you eat is with whom you eat," he says."

"This imbalance can be corrected by adding fruits and vegetables to the diet while limiting starchy carbohydrates. A green salad at least once per day and at least one cooked green vegetable daily, gradually adding more greens, will achieve an ideal diet. In addition to increasing the number of salads and vegetables eaten, you may wish to add green drinks and/or capsules to your daily routine. (See Resource Directory for specific products.) For the sample menu that follows, remember that the recipes can be found starting on page 241."

"Most fruits, due to their high sugar content, also provide nourishment for any fungal organism we may be harboring, and can give rise to Candida overgrowth and such attendant problems as fatigue, allergies, digestive problems, and brain fog. For these reasons, I do not recommend anything more than a three-day juice fast during the detox program unless you are being supervised by a practitioner. If you scored higher than 25 on the self-test in Chapter 1, avoid fasting—especially if this is your first time completing a detox program."

"Do you eat commercial (non-organic) vegetables, fruits, or meat? ? Do you wear clothes that have been dry-cleaned? ? Do you wear synthetic materials (such as polyester)? ? Do you eat processed food or fast food? ? Have you ever smoked or been exposed to second-hand smoke? ? Do you eat in restaurants more than twice weekly? ? Do you use bug spray in your home or have a pest control service? ? Do you use weed killer on your lawn? ? Do you dye or bleach your hair? ? Do you use cologne or perfume? ? Are you overweight, underweight, or do you have cellulite deposits? ?"

"It's important to get both types of fiber naturally found in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes. A blend of both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber makes for a brilliant orchestration of collecting toxins and carrying them out when you have a bowel movement. But getting your fiber solely from your food is very hard to accomplish. Rarely will you get enough fiber needed daily from these sources, especially in order to help detoxify the body. I would recommend a minimum of 35 to 45 grams of fiber daily during any of the detox programs discussed above."

"Remember that red fruits and their concentrates repair damage to your DNA. This is crucial because once you repair the damage to the DNA, the cell can regain much, if not all, of its previous functioning. Exercise to Lower Cholesterol_ When you exercise aerobically for up to an hour a day, you are increasing the good HDL cholesterol and reducing the bad LDL cholesterol. It may take three, four, or five months, but you will see a noticeable change. A Protocol to Lower High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) Hypertension is one of the top killers."
