    Ten Foods for Longlife

    Tomatoes. A major source of the antioxidant lycopene
    that reduces the risk of cancer by 40% -- notably prostate,
    lung and stomach cancers -- and increases cancer survival.
    Tomato eaters function better mentally in old age and suffer half
    as much heart disease. Concentrated tomato sauces have 5 times
    more lycopene than fresh tomatoes,
    and canned tomatoes have three times more than fresh

    Olive Oil. Shown to help reduce death from heart disease and cancer.
    Recent research shows that heart-attack survivors on a Mediterranean
    diet had half the death rates of those on an ordinary low-fat diet.
    Olive oil is also high in antioxidant activity.

    Red Grapes, including red grape juice and red wine.
    Red grapes have moderate antioxidant power,
    while purple grape juice has four times more antioxidant activity
    than orange or tomato juice. Red wine (not white)
    has about the same antioxidant capacity as purple grape juice or tea.
    French research show that drinking red wine in moderation increases
    longevity, but excessive drinking has the opposite effect,
    so limit to two glasses per day. Drink grape juice.

    Garlic. German researchers have found that garlic is packed
    with antioxidants know to help fend off cancer, heart disease and all-over aging,
    and prolong cancer survival time. Let crushed garlic "rest"
    about 10 minutes before cooking to preserve disease-fighting agents.

    Spinach. Second among vegetables only to garlic in antioxidant
    capacity and is also rich in folic acid, which helps fight cancer,
    heart disease and mental disorders. New University of Kentucky
    research shows folic acid may help prevent Alzheimer's disease. Eat both raw and steamed for best benefit

    Whole grains. A University of Minnesota study suggests
    the more whole grains you eat, the lower your odds of death
    by 15%. Whole grains contain anticancer agents and help
    stabilize blood sugar and insulin, which may promote longevity.
    Whole-grain "dark" breads, cereals such as All Bran, and "old fashioned" oatmeal are an excellent source

    Salmon, and other fatty fish. Contains high amounts
    of omega-3 fat that performs miracles throughout the body,
    fighting virtually every chronic disease known. Without it,
    your brain can't think, your heart can't beat,
    your arteries clog, and joints become inflamed.
    You need one ounce a day, or two servings of salmon,
    sardines, mackerel, herring or tuna per week

    Nuts. Eating more than 5 ounces a week can cut heart-attack
    deaths in women by 40% and help prevent deadly irregular heart
    beats in men a Harvard University study found. Almonds and walnuts
    lower blood cholesterol. Most of the fat in nuts is
    the good-type monounsaturated and/or omega-3.
    Unsalted nuts are best

    Blueberries. High in antioxidants, Tufts University researchers say a
    half-cup of blueberries a day can retard aging and can block brain
    changes leading to decline and even reverse failing memory

    Tea. Green or black tea has equal antioxidant benefit.
    One cup a day can cut heart disease risk in half Harvard researchers found.
    Make from loose tea or tea bags, instant and bottled tea has
    little effect Tufts University shows

    good info...but tea without milk in it is good...the milk does something to the black tea which makes it different...anyways take care...
