Ten Best and Worst Foods

Food has the potential to affect your physical health, emotional well-being and mental acuity.  Choose wisely.

The best foods are cancer-protective and longevity-favorable and, if consumed regularly, will contribute to maintaining ideal weight, achieving super immunity and promoting overall well-being.

Ten Best Foods:
  1. Green Leafy Vegetables (kale, collard greens, swiss chard, mustard greens, spinach, lettuce)
  2. Non-leafy Cruciferous Vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, cabbage)
  3. Berries
  4. Beans
  5. Mushrooms
  6. Onions
  7. Seeds (Flax seeds, chia, hemp, sesame, sunflower, pumpkin)
  8. Nuts (walnuts, pistachio, pine-nuts, almonds, cashews)
  9. Tomatoes
  10. Pomegranates
But the worst foods can be the leading causes of death, including cancer, diabetes and heart diseases.  The wrong foods can be as addictive as drugs and alcohol and can cause us to lead lives that provide only a fraction of our potential for health, energy level and physiological well-being.

Ten Worst Foods:
  1. Full-fat Dairy (cheese, ice cream, butter, whole milk)
  2. Trans Fat Containing Foods (stick margarine, shortening, fast foods, commercial baked goods)
  3. Doughnuts
  4. Sausage, Hot Dogs, and Luncheon Meats
  5. Smoked Meat, Barbecued Meat and Conventionally-raised Red Meat
  6. Fried Foods including Potato Chips and French Fries
