Nuts & Chocolate = Mental Longevity?
Compounds called plant sterols may help protect against Alzheimer''s, German research reveals.  Mice on a diet enriched with stigmasterol - a plant sterol found in dark chocolate and many tree nuts, had 62% fewer Alzheimer''s-related brain proteins than mice that consumed no stigmasterol.

Step Away from the White Stuff
Loading up on sugar may strain your heart, a study in JAMA Internal Medicine suggests.  People who took in about 20% of their calories from added sugars were 38% more likely to die of heart disease than those who ate less than 10%.

Which Foods Are Giving You Wrinkles?
What you put in your grocery cart can  put you on the fast track to fine lines, says Harold Lancer, M.D., author of the book Younger.  High-glycemic foods (sweets, white starches like rice, pasta, and potatoes) can attack and destroy proteins - including collagen and elastin - that keep the skin plump and young-looking.  Instead, pick whole grains, cucumbers, cherries, asparagus, broccoli, and grapefruit.

Before You Ever Buy Bread Again!
Remember to always choose bread that is made with real certified organic ingredients.  The wheat that is used to make most bread is heavily sprayed with pesticides and by choosing certified organic products you will avoid exposure to GMOs.

Energy-Draining Foods
Energy-draining foods to avoid are bagels, muffins, cereal, soda, fruit smoothies and fruit juice, sweetened yogurt, potato chips, and sandwiches
