Hi, Apricot! This article appeared in today's newspaper - I've seen MANY other such pieces, mostly in Prevention magazine; will try to hunt them up for you. Meanwhile, maybe you can find Prevention's Web site - I think it's www.prevention.com.
Anyway! Herewith the article:
After ALL THE WORK I went to to get it into Word, now Word won't let me copy it!
Well, tell you what: it will be a WEEK(!) before the paper gets the piece onto their Web site, at which point I will try again to send it to you.
Meanwhile, in essence, the deal is:
FRUITS AND VEGGIES:D LOTS of THEM! As in 7 servings/day for a woman, 9 for a man
Get as many different colors as possible: orange, red, yellow, red, green, blue, white, and the brighter the better.
Especially recommended are mangos, carrots, sweet potatoes, apricots, cantaloupe, butternut squash, peaches, pumpkin, (for beta carotene);
oranges, grapefruit, lemons, tangerines, clementines, apricots, peaches, nectarines, papaya, pears, pineapple, yellow raisins, yellow pepper (for bioflavonoids);
also I've learned from Prevention that all the cruficerous veggies are potent antioxidants and cancer fighters; broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, kohlrabi - with broccoli being especially valuable
also all the members of the allium family - garlic, onions, leeks -
are infection/disease fighters, especially garlic
and the hot peppers are also good
vitamins C and E are superlative antioxidants
hope this helps
and I HOPE I can conquer this !@(*#)(@*!)@!!! computer glitch!!
(and if not, well, there are many ways to build a barn:D :D !!)
