"The second big secret weapon in nutrition when someone wants to fight drugs and chemicals is the green vegetable, particularly the bitter green vegetables and corn bread. Again, the point is to only select organic vegetables. Otherwise, a person will be exposed to pesticides and other toxins that will not help him. He is, in a way, still close to drugs. FATS As you may recall, fats are another member of a trio of major food groups, called "macronutrients," which also include proteins and carbohydrates. What is fat? How can we tell one type of fat from another?"

"In the Chinese language, a subject is an animal, and an object is a vegetable," he says. "You cannot ask a vegetable to jump from here to there. If you don't move, you are not an animal anymore—you become a vegetable!" Certainly this is a factor with the marathoners of Odyssey House. But even with a milder case such as Rusty's, doing DDR chased the bleakness out of his view of his future. And while most experiences will pale in comparison to the high of snorting cocaine, the possibility of a rich life can help keep that memory in perspective."

"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."

"Although most readers probably have heard this ad nauseam throughout their lives, most epidemiological studies demonstrate the importance of fruit and vegetable intake in maintaining brain health. Recently, a six-year study on nearly two thousand Chicago-area men and women showed that on measures of mental sharpness, older people who ate more than two servings of vegetables daily appeared about five years younger at the end of the six-year study than those who ate few or no vegetables."

"Eat Vi cup to one cup of beans daily in a vegetable soup, on your salad, as an ingredient to a main dish or in a dip. 5. Eat at least one ounce of raw seeds or nuts daily, preferably in one of the delicious salad dressings or dips you can find within this book. Try to use more seeds and less nuts. 6. Eat at least four fresh fruits daily. 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."

"For example, bagged, peeled vegetables and fruits or bagged cut lettuce and salad blends have exposed the vegetable or fruit to the air and there is significant vitamin and mineral loss when you do that. Even eating a whole apple is better that eating the apple sauce since the heat and air exposure destroys the nutrients." "What is the difference between diets of elderly people and younger people? " Kevin L. Snead: "There is definitely a big difference."

"You cannot ask a vegetable to jump from here to there. If you don't move, you are not an animal anymore—you become a vegetable!" Certainly this is a factor with the marathoners of Odyssey House. But even with a milder case such as Rusty's, doing DDR chased the bleakness out of his view of his future. And while most experiences will pale in comparison to the high of snorting cocaine, the possibility of a rich life can help keep that memory in perspective. Rusty is now in his sophomore year of college, making good grades, and dating a girl who is also committed to staying sober."

"Probiotic Origins Commercially used probiotic strains have been isolated from vegetable, animal or human origins. The origins of each strain will vary. The origin can help tell you a bit more about the product. A probiotic from animals and vegetables is more likely to be transient. Transient probiotics travel through the intestinal tract, eliciting some health benefits, but they do not attach and colonize in the body. Human strains are typically great colonizers. The more likely a probiotic is to colonize, the greater the resulting duration and potency of its health benefit."

"For lunch you can have more diluted juice, or a raw vegetable or sprout salad. Absolutely do not use bottled dressing. Make your own dressing from fresh olive oil and lemon or apple cider vinegar and any fresh herbs and spices you of your choice. If you are hungry throughout the day, feel free to snack on fresh vegetables or juices. For dinner eat fresh fruit or fruit juice or fruit smoothies. • Days 2-4 After your morning flush, drink diluted juices and herbal tea throughout the day—as much as you can dfink. Try to consume 128 ounces during the day."

"The same company makes toasted onion and vegetable rice snaps with safflower oil added. Read the ingredients. Even if you think you are familiar with a product, be careful not to get complacent. Grape-Nuts, for instance, are free of oil. So Grape-Nuts flakes probably are as well, right? Wrong! They contain vegetable oil. Avoid them. Guiltless Gourmet makes baked unsalted yellow corn chips that have no oil. But all the rest of the Guiltless Gourmet baked chips have safflower oil added. Read the ingredients. When it comes to grains, you should eat only whole-grain products."

"The best protein and fats come from vegetables and vegetable oils. Avocados, olive oil, nuts, beans, soy, and so on are great sources of protein and contain fats that will actually lower your cholesterol. The best carbohydrates come from fresh whole fruits and vegetables. Avoid all processed foods. An apple is better than apple juice. Whole grains are essential, and avoiding processed grains is critical in developing a healthy diet for everyone, especially the diabetic. The next best protein and fats come from fish."

"Studies also suggest that diets with a higher ratio of animal to vegetable proteins increase the rate of bone loss in women 65 and older. In an observational study, women whose diets contained the highest proportion of animal protein were almost four times more likely to suffer a fractured hip than women whose primary source of protein was vegetables. This is just a sampling of some of the research that doesn't get pushed out into the public's awareness by commercial sponsors. Where might you find additional information about bone health to guide your decisions?"

"Sometimes kids don't like cruciferous vegetables, so it may be necessary to give your child capsules or powder that contain concentrated vegetable nutrients. Detox Phase 4 consists of supporting the body's natural detoxification processes by adjusting the body's acid-alkaline balance, or pH. As a rule, a state of alkalinity is more efficient for detoxifying than is a state of acidity. I have found that most of my autistic kids, however, are acidotic. Dr."

"Consistent with these findings, the patients in the Lyon Diet Heart Study who developed less heart disease on a Mediterranean diet (high in vegetables and fruits, whole grains, and vegetable oil, and low in red meat) also developed 61 percent fewer new cancers compared with the people who ate the "prudent Western-style heart diet" (meaning lower in total and saturated fats than the normal diet)."

"Not long ago, he went out for lunch with his son and ordered a very simple vegetable meal at a Chinese restaurant. When the food arrived, however, he could see that there was oil on it. Anthony's solution: he ordered two bowls of hot water, and washed the oil out of the vegetables. Satisfied that it now met his standards, he happily consumed the oil-free meal. Sometimes, there's not such a ready solution. On a recent trip to the Far East, the airline forgot to load Anthony's special meal. In that case, he simply didn't eat anything but a couple of bananas on the whole twenty-hour flight."

"You can have cheese and crackers instead of tea cakes, grilled vegetable vinaigrette instead of pasta. There isn't really an alternative for French bread. We all know this. If I pretended there was, I would lose my credibility with you. I, like you, know there is no substitute. You will just have to hold your impulse and smile. Parties Find out what food will be served at a party before you go. Will there be nonalcoholic drinks? Will there be sugar-free drinks? Will there be any foods not loaded with sugars? If there won't be food that is appropriate for you, take something with you."

"FCCFIP of lipase can break down 5 grams of vegetable oil in one minute. The fat found in beef or an avocado would be different. A WORD ABOUT VALUE When determining value you will no doubt try to compare enzyme supplement labels. Chances are the only useful information you will find will be the active units listed. Because the blending of enzymes is so critical to potency, you cannot assume that the higher the active units, the better the value."

"Particularly beneficial as a digestive enzyme for people who have difficulty digesting vegetable material Hemicellulase units (HCU) Invertase (sucrase) Carbohydrase ţBreaks down carbohydrates, especially sucrose and maltose ?Particularly beneficial as a digestive enzyme for people who are intolerant of sugars Invertase active units (IAU) Enzyme Category Purpose Unit of Measurement Lactase Carbohydrase ţBreaks down lactose (milk sugar) ?Used to treat lactose intolerance Lactase units (LacU) Lipase Lipase ţBreaks down lipids and improves fat utilization ?"

"Lab studies suggest that many important phytochemicals in broccoli fight tumor growth at different stages of the cancer process, making it a true powerhouse vegetable. Broccoli is rich in sulforaphane (a member of the isothiocyanate family of phytochemicals), which stimulates enzymes in the body that detoxify carcinogens before they have a chance to damage cells in the first place. Through different mechanisms, indole-3-carbinol and crambene activate enzymes that help the body eliminate carcinogens before they can harm our genes. In Dr."

"I routinely put at least four or five drops (4 mg to 5 mg) in a smoothie or fresh vegetable and fruit juice (the folic acid is tasteless!). One more thing: Government agencies don't recommend high levels of folic acid supplementation, but the reason has nothing to do with the safety of folic acid. Doses of up to 20 mg (20,000 meg!) have been used safely with humans, plus it's a water-soluble vitamin, which means you'll get rid of any you don't need. So the problem isn't with taking a lot of folic acid. The problem is that folic acid can mask the symptoms of B12 deficiency."

"ENJOY SOY AT ITS BEST In my supermarket, you can buy edamame in the frozen vegetable section in two ways: as a 16-ounce bag of shelled edamame (boiled green soybeans without their pods) or as a bag of edamame in pods. Both are already cooked and ready to be thawed and eaten! I have both in my freezer because I like to snack on edamame in pods-you have to work harder to get to each soybean-and I like the shelled edamame for use in cooking casseroles, soups, stews, noodle and rice dishes, and so on."

"This vegetable has a long folk history in treating many liver diseases. Their active ingredient is cynarin, which has demonstrated liver-protecting effects. Artichoke extract is in a lot of liver-protection supplement formulas. Dandelion root. Many people living healthily with hepatitis C swear by this herb and use it to make a tea. Reishi and shiitake mushrooms. Chinese herbalists prize Reishi mushrooms for their protective effect on the liver. The bitterer the mushroom, the higher the level of triterpenoids, which give it its potency. It's usually made into a tea or taken as an extract."

"Each country differs in the amount of total fat its people enjoy, largely because of differences in type of meat and the way they use olive oil; wine intake, dairy consumption, and availability of different fruits and vegetable are also important variables. The traditional diet of Greece (before 1960) is the one linked to lowered death rates and longer life expectancy."

"Unsaturated fats are liquid, and they are found in two basic forms: monounsaturated (for example, olive oil) and polyunsaturated (for example, fish and vegetable oils). The polyunsaturates contain essential fatty acids, nutrients used by the body as raw materials to produce a huge array of subsidiary fatty substances that perform countless basic functions. Among other roles, they are fundamental building blocks of cellular membranes and regulatory compounds that enhance or suppress disease processes."

"For each 14 grams of vegetable protein (for a 2,000-calorie diet), participants experienced an average drop of 2.14 points in the systolic reading and 1.35 points in the diastolic. WHO IS SALT SENSITIVE? When it comes to salt and its effect on blood pressure, the connection exists only for people who are considered salt sensitive. This means that as they increase their salt intake, their blood pressure increases, too. There's no inexpensive or easy way to find out who is in that category and who isn't, but a number of factors increase the likelihood that you are salt sensitive."

"Lunch: vegetable soup made without meat stock, or a raw or cooked vegetable salad, butter, and milk. Supper: a protein meal with no starch, such as vegetable soup that can contain some meat; meat or cheese, nuts or legumes; two cooked fresh vegetables; a large green salad; berries or melon for dessert; and unsweetened coffee, coffee substitute, or tea. ITCHING IN CHILDREN Most itching in children occurs during childhood diseases such as measles or chicken pox. Hives occur with various allergic reactions. All these conditions respond to baths with Aveeno, a colloidal oatmeal preparation."

"Have a fruit salad or vegetable salad with lunch or dinner. • Have a vegetable side dish with the main meal for the day. • Have fresh fruit for dessert. • Top your cereal with dried or fresh fruit. • Add raw vegetables to your sandwich. • Choose fruit-flavored, lowfat yogurt. • Choose whole-grain breads with fruit. • Add vegetables to other dishes. When you use the Nutrition Facts food label and the food pyramid as guides to gradually introduce health-smart foods to your diet, you'll automatically be reducing your fat intake and increasing your fiber intake."

"Separate your meat cutting board from your vegetable board. Reconsider eating out. Food establishments are not always as sanitary as your home. Be especially wary of salads and other raw foods, which may be prepared by people who do not wash their hands after leaving the bathroom and preparing your food. Wash utensils carefully. Use food-grade hydrogen peroxide. Wash fruits and vegetables. Soak fruits and vegetables in food-grade hydrogen peroxide. Merely wiping fruits and vegetables does nothing to get rid of parasites. Avoid tap water."

"And because Natural Astaxanthin is a concentrated vegetable extract, it wouldn't be surprising if it worked much better than fruits and vegetables. Unless you eat a lot of salmon on a regular basis, or a whole lot of crab, lobster or shrimp, you're probably not going to have a measurable amount of Astaxanthin in your blood (unless, of course, you take a Natural Astaxanthin supplement). This makes it much more difficult to test the epidemiological effects of Astaxanthin."
