Pomegranates and dates fight heart disease

Pomegranate juice and a handful of sticky dates every day are a winning combination in the fight against heart disease.

Just half a glass of the red pomegranate juice with the dates is enough.

Researchers at the Technion –Israel Institute of Technology, led by Prof Michael Aviram have discovered that the combination provides maximum protection against atherosclerosis – the plaque build up which hardens the arteries – which can lead to heart attack or stroke.

Eat oysters to avoid inflammation

Eat oysters to avoid zinc deficiency which can reduce the body’s power to fight inflammation.

Scientists now believe lack of sufficient levels of zinc may play a role in chronic diseases like heart disease, cancer and diabetes.

“When you take away zinc, the cells that control inflammation appear to activate and respond differently; this causes the cells to promote more inflammation,” said Emily Ho, a professor and director of the Moore Family Center for Whole Grain Foods, Nutrition and Preventive Health.
