Healthy Eating and Healthy Foods

The latest information about health and staying healthy can be conflicting and confusing. That’s why we stick with what we know best: food. Here you will find articles on the foods that are good for your heart, health and waistline, from almonds to garlic and yams. Many of the foods we feature have cancer-fighting properties, slow the advance of aging or are rich in antioxidants. We also take a look at one of nature’s finest beverages: water. Is vitamin water better for you? And what about energy drinks? We don’t offer medical advice; instead we present you with information on natural remedies and readily available foods, so you can make better health choices.
