Read an exclusive preview of Men's Health's new book, Eat This, Not That! - the no-diet weight-loss solution.
Thirty grams of almonds a day, about 23 nuts, provides 9 grams of heart-healthy oleic acid, which is more than peanuts, walnuts, or cashews. This monounsaturated fat is known to be responsible for many health benefits, the most recently discovered of which is improved memory. Rats in California were better able to navigate a maze the second time around if they’d been fed oleic acid, and there’s no reason to assume that the same treatment won’t help you navigate your day-to-day life. If nothing else, snacking on them will take your mind off your hunger. Nearly a quarter of an almond’s calories come from fibre and protein. Researchers at Purdue University found this is made a group who ate the nuts feel full for an hour and a half longer than a group who at rice cakes.Substitutes: Walnuts, pecans, peanuts, sesame seeds, flaxseedsRecipe ideas: Sprinkle crushed almonds over yogurt, cereal, or salad; toss sliced almonds into your next stir-fry; or smear a spoonful of almond butter over wholemeal toast the next time you need a quick breakfast.
"those who had been drinking five or more cups of tea per day were 26 percent less likely to die of any cause"
There was a letter in the Lancet recently about this sort of statement.
haha! took me several minutes to realise what was wrong with that statement !
well pointed out
I also thought that you could only drink tea, not eat it, so the title "10 foods you should eat every day" is a bit of a misnomer.
Good to know that I am now varying percent less likely to die of any cause depending on my intake of food and amount of daily exercise.
Imagine being immortal though. At what point would it dawn on your that that would be the worst possible fate imaginable? Or would you learn through eons of time to live with it? I suppose you wouldn't have any choice.

Being immortal would be fine so long as you had a really bad memory.
Perhaps that's the way things actually are. We're not going to know any different are we? The Big Bang wasn't the start of everything, just a time when lots of shit was going down. That's what I reckon. Read Spinoza.
