All peppers are loaded with antioxidants, but none so much as the brightly coloured reds, yellows, and oranges. These colours result from carotenoids concentrated in the flesh of the pepper, the same carotenoids that give tomatoes, carrots, and grapefruits their healthy hues. The range of benefits provided by these pigments include improved cell communication, better immune system function, protection against sun damage, and a diminished risk for several types of cancer. And if you can take the heat, try cooking with chilli peppers, too. They’re still loaded with carotenoids and vitamin C but have the added benefit of capsaicins, temperature-raising phytochemicals that fight headache and arthritis pain as well as boost metabolism.Substitutes: Carrots, sweet potatoes, watermelonRecipe idea: Use sliced peppers in place of tortilla chips to scoop dips; brush with olive oil and grill them alongside your favourite meat; or sauté a mix of diced peppers with garlic and chilli flakes for a side to any main.
"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.
Kryten wrote (see)
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.
