The magazine emphasized that regular intake of “new” olive oil helps reduce cancer rates and heart disease, relieves obesity, in addition to reducing the risk of stroke.
Research indicates that the oleic acid in olive oil can reduce belly fat, and that the phenols in the new olive oil can effectively “turn off” the genes associated with inflammation that appear in metabolic syndrome.
The magazine considered that lentils are a “star” of the table in old food schools, and health experts confirm the ability of lentils to reduce inflammation, reduce cholesterol, enhance fat metabolism and suppress appetite.
Nut … and intelligence
Many health systems around the world associate walnuts with intelligence, the secret the Romans used to strengthen their bodies and intelligence.
A new scientific study indicates that a handful of walnuts contains nearly twice the number of disease-fighting antioxidants, and walnuts are one of the best food sources of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids, and it has been scientifically proven that walnuts are especially good for the heart.
A study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology found that eating nuts one or more times per week was associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease by up to 19% and a reduced risk of coronary heart disease by 23%.
Oats are a popular food in America, from adults to young ones, even horses love it, and experts confirm that oats are rich in a type of soluble fiber called beta-glucan and the anti-inflammatory compound avinanthramide – which together help prevent obesity-related health problems including heart disease and diabetes.
Watercress was recently crowned among the “stars of foods” for super-quality and powerful nutrition, and the Centers for Disease Control in America published a report in which it classified 47 fruits and vegetables that contain an amount of 17 nutrients to combat diseases, placing watercress in the first place.
Watercress contains huge amounts of beta-carotene and vitamin K per 100 grams, which are two compounds that maintain the freshness of the skin and its youth. It is also a beauty food, as it is rich in (phenethyl isothiocyanate).
Results of a trial published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition indicate that a daily dose of 85 grams of raw watercress (that’s about two cups) can reduce cancer-related DNA damage by 17 percent.

Research indicates the presence of polyphenols in apple peels, which are indigestible compounds that can do “everything” from promoting the growth of friendly bacteria in the gut that aid in weight loss to reducing weight. Cholesterol.
One study showed that 75 grams of apples (the equivalent of two medium-sized apples) lowered levels of “bad” cholesterol by 23 percent compared to an equivalent serving of prunes, known for their high fiber content.
Experts confirm that tomatoes are especially rich in lycopene, an antioxidant whose benefits, unlike most nutrients in fresh produce, increase after cooking.
Dozens of studies indicate a relationship between regular consumption of lycopene-rich tomatoes and a lower risk of cardiovascular disease, skin damage, and some types of cancer.
One recently published study showed that men who ate more than 10 servings of tomatoes per week had an 18% lower risk of developing prostate cancer.
A second study showed that a diet rich in tomatoes may help protect postmenopausal women from breast cancer by increasing levels of adiponectin, a hormone involved in regulating sugar and fat levels in the blood.
