sources of antioxidants, such as Vitamins C and E and beta-carotene, are some of
your best defenses against coronary-pulmonary aging. Choose from these foods
when eating at least five servings per day of fruits and vegetables, better yet
Red pepper, Brussels sprouts, papaya, orange, chestnuts, butternut squash, kiwi,
strawberries, cantaloupe, kale, pink grapefruit, sweet potato, cabbage,
broccoli, and cauliflower. (The latter three also help the liver detoxify
poisons and "bad" estrogens (16-hydroxyestrone) that promote breast,
colon, cervical and prostate cancer.)
Almonds, spinach, parsnips, peanut butter, sunflower seeds, asparagus, sweet
potato, wheat germ, brussels sprouts, peanuts, pecans.
Carrot, butternut squash, cantaloupe, sweet potato, kale, watercress, apricot,
red pepper, turnip greens, mango.

Eat from the fruit and vegetable "color palette" each day and include
red, green, orange, blue (blueberries) and yellow.
