    Anyone watch Oprah today - foods that make you younger



    I wish that I had a better memory, but here are the interesting things that I learned:

    - broccoli sprouts are really good for you. (not sure on all of the details - but they have more nutrients than broccoli!)

    - 1/4 cup of broccoli a day can cut your risk of cancer in half

    - one small handful of nuts a day can lower your cholesterol

    - sugar ages you (The one woman drinks 2 liters/day of Pepsi and they told her to switch to diet since sugar ages you)

    I wish I would have watched that. It sounds interesting.

    I love almonds and broccoli, so that is a good start

    To follow up on this, I found this website about "the world's healthiest foods"

    http://www.whfoods.com/

    they actually list what they think are the 100 healthiest foods... Was interesting.
