Read an exclusive preview of Men's Health's new book, Eat This, Not That! - the no-diet weight-loss solution.
Most fruits and vegetables are role players, supplying us with a monster dose of a single nutrient. But Swiss chard is nature’s multivitamin, delivering substantial amounts of 16 vitamins and vital nutrients, and it does so at a rock-bottom caloric cost. For a mere 35 calories’ worth of cooked chard, you get more than 716 percent of your recommended daily intake of bone-strengthening vitamin K, 214 percent of your day’s vitamin A ( to defend against cancer and bolster vision), and 17 percent of hard-to-get vitamin E (which can help sharpen mental acuity). Plus, emerging research suggests that Swiss chard’s combination of fibre and phytonutrients and may provide an effective defence against colon cancer.Substitutes: Spinach, mustard greens, watercress, arugula, romaine lettuceRecipe idea: Chop the leaves and ribs into rough pieces and sauté in olive oil, garlic, and chilli flakes; mix it with golden raisins and toasted pine nuts and serve with meat or fish; or stir the green tops into minestrone or add to a pot of boiling white rice.

"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.
