    Im sure only a genius like this clown knows the true answer, and the rest of us have been winging it with luck our entire life just randomly ingesting whatever the supermarket sells us. If that luck peters out we could just pass out walking down the street without any warning at all.


    Only this guy …ONLY THIS GUY knows. The rest of us are just playing Russian Roulette with our food choices.

    We're living dangerously, that's for sure.

    Yeah, those are great vitamin / mineral / anti-ox foods, which are wonderful once you aren't sweating the basics of beans, rice, and wheat. Soybeans are just amazing.

    According to Center for Science in the Public Interest:

    Sweet taters
    Mangos
    Greek yogurt
    Broccoli
    Salmon
    Crisp breads
    Garbonzos
    Watermelon
    Squash (ew, really? uch.)
    and Leafy Greens.

    They also have a list of worst foods, which included, surprisingly:

    Campbells Chicken Noodle Soup. 760 mg of sodium!

    on that list (besides the chicken soup) the only thing I'd eat is watermelon. Rest of it doesn't really matter how healthy it is, I'd prefer ritz crackers.
     
  12. I like Campbells (and other brands) chicken noodle soup. I remember occasionally, as a boy, eating a teaspoonful of salt, or of salted butter, or of white sugar, too. But back then we walked a lot and bicycled a lot, and had no computers to sit in front of for hours.

    Not too long ago, someone wrote in Black Belt magazine that there was no evidence that higher sodium intake was bad for people in normal health. That's what I would have thought from biology class: your kidneys are supposed to adjust the sodium excretion rate to maintain homeostasis regarding things like optimum blood pressure.

    But I try not to overwork my kidneys too much these days: no more spoonsful of salt, sugar or butter.
