Food: The Ultimate Secret Exposed


The grocery store, along with your kitchen sink, are two of the most dangerous places in the world.

In a special video, Alex Jones addresses one of the darkest modes of power the globalists have used to control the population– food. The adulteration of the planet’s staple crops, genetically-altered species and intentionally-altered water, food and air all amount to a Eugenics operation to weaken the masses and achieve full spectrum domination.

  PART 1/2



People the world over, but especially in the United States are under chemical attack. Deadly and dangerous toxins ranging from Aspartame to Fluoride, GMO, Mercury-tainting, pesticides, cross-species chimeras, plastic compounds in chicken, high fructose corn syrup, cloned meat, rBGH and new aggressive GM species of salmon have all entered into our diets and environments– whether we want it or not.

  PART 2/2




Many of these substances knowingly cause or are linked with sterility, low birth weight, miscarriages, smaller or deformed offspring, as well as organ failure, cancer, brain tumors and Death itself, what you DON’T know about on your grocery shelves can hurt you. Further, Alex demonstrates that a pattern of buried studies, fraudulent statistics and a will reduce global population all point to the deliberate criminal poisoning of the food and water supply.
Suffer no fools if those you show refuse to believe what is going on. Instead, research these important areas for yourself, and warn those you love about need to stop their food from being used as a Depopulation-weapon against us all. Please share this important video with everyone, so the truth about these substances can be known.

Fat-free Food: A Bad Idea



Mention was made the other day in a class I taught about the pleasures of a specific brand of fat-free cookies. "Did you?" one student asked. For me it was like asking if I had fried grasshoppers recently - culturally absurd. "Of course not," I said, "I do not touch things for the world. "She looked at me with astonishment." But they are so good! "I realized how much I am far from ordinary, as in touch with what's happening in the lives of most Americans. Unfortunately, it there is little I can do about it. I still see nonsense and unrelated issues around food and health, and then I have noticed. Fortunately, some people are listening. Let I deal here "food without fat, which I think could be dangerous.

The hysteria against fat lost control. While excess fat can stress the liver and contribute to health problems, which is neglected in this edition are two points: a) fat is one of the three essential macro nutrients, and b) the promotion of some fats are healthy, some are in poor health.

With proteins and carbohydrates, lipids are an important source of calories. We need essential fatty acids, linoleic and linolenic acid or omega 6 and omega 3 for many important functions, namely:


1) to keep us warm, especially in winter, the distribution of fats generate heat. The diet of the Eskimo gets about 60% of its calories from fat, and their native diet did not have heart disease.

2) For the proper hormonal function, especially for women.

3) To maintain our strong cell walls.

4) In order to absorb and store fat-soluble vitamins, particularly vitamin D, necessary to help absorb calcium from the intestine. Women who do not get enough good quality fatty acids can be found with low stores of vitamin D, and a thinning of the bones.




Although saturated fats have a role in our health: the second Sally Fallon, Nourishing Traditions author, good saturated fats enhance the immune system, protects the liver against alcohol ingestion, have antimicrobial properties, and play an important role in modeling bone through the mechanism of protection of deposits of calcium in the bones of the disruption of free radicals. Fats also affect the nerves, like a low fat diet can contribute to depression: there is a high fat diet doctors (80% fat "ketogenic diet") used to control seizures, that works better than drugs.

eat fat free does not guarantee weight loss. Fat in foods provides a feeling of satiety, meaning that we've had enough to eat. If no high-fat meal, you can keep eating and eating until we've really stuffed, ending up with many more calories than we had with a little salad of olive oil. The women in my class who liked fat-free cookies have said he could easily eat a whole bag of them. I contend that it is not because the cookies are very good, but because women do not feel, they've had enough. In other words, they're still hungry. Therefore, they continue to eat cookies made from carbohydrates (all fat calories were replaced by carbohydrates) and end up with far more calories than you expected. Therefore, no difference in weight!

There is some strange new foods on the market that have no dietary or culinary sense to me. Take "fat-free mayonnaise." Regular mayonnaise, which I did, it takes 1 egg yolk and 1 cup of olive oil and some lemon or vinegar and mustard. In other words, 98% fat OSA. If now "fat free", which is to replace the volume of oil? Read the label is useful in these cases. The substitutions are usually gums and sugars and starches. It seems much more biased in my opinion, as well. You're better half teaspoon of true two tablespoons of the untrue. Same goes for "free sour cream," and even "food".

Just as too much causes problems, there will be a shortage, and it is quite possible to become fat deficient. Among the health problems associated with a lack of fatty acids that we can count: dry skin, eczema, low energy, kidney function, slow wound healing or infection, vision problems and disorders learning, depression, same error. A diet low in fat is also associated with a higher suicide rate.

Some fats are very unhealthy. These include: heated oils, bleached and deodorized, and hydrogenated fats like margarine and shortening. They contain trans fatty acids, which can double the rate of heart attack and raise the LDL or bad cholesterol. Pregnant women who eat margarine and other hydrogenated fats may be at risk of having babies with low birth weight. Heated hydrogenated fats, such as those used in fried foods like chicken, fish and chips, are associated with cancer and heart disease.

There is some good news? Yes, there are things like the fat of good quality. Among the best are the extra virgin olive oil, sesame oil and unrefined sunflower oil, raw linseed oil, walnut oil, organic butter and clarified butter or ghee. Omega 3 fatty acids are cold water fish, dark, cool as salmon and mackerel, as well as in flaxseed oil. Omega 6 are in the sesame oil and sunflower oil. fresh organic butter from cows fed grass green health can be an excellent source of vitamin A. Natural

On average, when cooking from scratch, about 2 or 3 tablespoons of healthy fats per day, will give us all the essential fatty acids we need. At the same time, it's important to avoid fried foods, hydrogenated fats and bad fats, animal trade higher. fatty foods and processed snacks are always overeat, to encourage sugar cravings, and keep you satisfied. good fats are good for your skin, hair, nails, the immune system, heart, liver, nerves and your satisfaction with food.

The important role of vitamin B12



Vitamin B12 benefits,Vitamin B12 deficiency, Oral therapy


   What is vitamin B-12?

Vitamin B-12 is an important vitamin that you should get their food. It is found primarily in fish, shellfish, meat and dairy products. Vitamin B-12 helps make red blood cells and DNA, and keeps your nervous system working properly.

Most people with low vitamin B-12 levels or not consume meat products and milk or who have trouble absorbing vitamin B-12 of the stomach or small intestine. Vegetarians, vegans (strict vegetarians who eat no animal products) and the elderly are most at risk of not getting enough vitamin B-12.

  What can cause problems with absorbing vitamin B-12?

The following are some things that can cause problems with absorbing vitamin B-12:

   ~  Having a disease called pernicious anemia that destroys the cells in your stomach that help you absorb vitamin B-12.
   ~  Having an intestinal condition that interferes with the way your body absorbs food, such as Crohn's disease or celiac disease.
   ~  Having abnormal bacterial growth in your stomach.
   ~  Taking certain medicines that are used to treat heartburn and ulcers for a long time.
   ~  Having had surgery on your stomach or your intestines, such as gastric bypass surgery.
Your doctor will find out why you have a low vitamin B-12 level by asking questions about your health, giving you a physical exam and checking your blood. He or she may need to do other tests to check for a low level of vitamin B-12.

   Vitamin B-12 Deficiency

Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) deficiency is a common cause of macrocytic anemia and has been involved in a spectrum of neuropsychiatric disorders. The role of vitamin B12 deficiency in hyperhomocysteinemia and the promotion of atherosclerosis is only now being studied. The diagnosis of vitamin B12 deficiency is typically based on measuring serum vitamin B12, however, about 50 percent of patients with subclinical disease have normal levels of vitamin B12. A more sensitive method of screening for vitamin B12 deficiency is a measure of serum methylmalonic acid and homocysteine levels, which rose in early vitamin B12 deficiency. Use of the Schilling test for the detection of pernicious anemia has been largely supplanted by serological tests for antibodies to parietal cells and intrinsic factor. Contrary to current medical practice, studies show that supplementation of vitamin B12 orally is a safe and effective treatment for the condition of vitamin B12. Even when intrinsic factor is not present to help the absorption of vitamin B12 (pernicious anemia) or other diseases that affect the usual absorption sites in the terminal ileum, oral therapy is effective.

Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) plays an important role in DNA synthesis and neurologic function. A deficiency can lead to a wide range of hematological and neuropsychiatric disorders can often be reversed by early diagnosis and prompt treatment.

The prevalence of vitamin B12 in the general population is unknown. The impact, however, seems to increase with age. In one study,  15 percent of adults over 65 had laboratory findings of vitamin B12. The use almost everywhere gastric acid inhibitors, which can lead to lower levels of vitamin B12. May play a role in the development of vitamin B12 undervalued. Noting the widespread use of these agents and the aging U.S. population into account, the true prevalence of vitamin B12 deficiency may be even higher than statistics indicate. Despite these facts, the need for universal screening in the elderly remains controversial.

   Clinical Manifestations

Vitamin B12 deficiency is associated with haematological, neurological and psychiatric disorders. It is a common cause of macrocytic (megaloblastic) anemia and, in advanced cases, pancytopenia. Neurologic sequelae of vitamin B12 deficiency include paresthesia, peripheral neuropathy, and demyelination of the corticospinal tract and dorsal columns (subacute combined systems disease). Vitamin B12 deficiency has also been linked to psychiatric disorders, including memory problems, irritability, depression, dementia and, more rarely, psychosis.

In addition to hematologic and neuropsychiatric manifestations, vitamin B12 deficiency may exert indirect cardiovascular effects. Similar to folic acid deficiency, vitamin B12-teinemia hyperhomocys product, which is an independent risk factor for atherosclerosis disease. Although the role of folic acid in reducing homocysteine levels as a method to prevent coronary heart disease and stroke continues to be a topic of great interest, it has little focus on the potential role of vitamin B12 deficiency as a factor contributing to the development of cardiovascular disease. This is particularly important when one considers the replacement therapy of vitamins. Folic acid supplementation may mask B12 deficiency and cause or exacerbate occult neurological disease. Therefore, physicians should consider excluding B12 deficiency before starting therapy with folic acid.

  Normal Absorption of Vitamin B-12

In humans, only two enzymatic reactions are known to be dependent on vitamin B12. In the first reaction, methylmalonic acid is converted to succinyl-CoA with vitamin B12 as a cofactor. B12 deficiency can lead to serum levels of methylmalonic acid. In the second reaction, homocysteine is converted to methionine using vitamin B12 and folic acid as cofactors. In this reaction, a deficiency in vitamin B12 or folic acid may increase homocysteine levels.
Understanding the cycle of vitamin B12 helps to illuminate the potential causes of deficiency. The acidic environment of the stomach facilitates the distribution of vitamin B12 that is bound to food. Intrinsic factor, which is released by parietal cells of the stomach, binds vitamin B12 in the duodenum. This complex intrinsic factor-vitamin B12 aids subsequently the absorption of vitamin B12 in the terminal ileum.

In addition to the absorption method, the evidence supports the existence of an alternative system that is independent of intrinsic factor or even an intact terminal ileum. About 1 percent of a large dose of vitamin B12 orally is absorbed by this second mechanism. This route is important in relation to oral replacement. Once absorbed, vitamin B12 bound to transcobalamin II and is carried throughout the body. The interruption of one or any combination of these steps places a person at risk of developing deficits.



   Diagnosis of Vitamin B12 Deficiency

The diagnosis of vitamin B12 deficiency is traditionally based on serum vitamin B12 low, usually less than 200 pg / ml (150 pmol / L) with clinical signs of disease. However, studies indicate that older patients tend to have neuropsychiatric disorders, in the absence of hematological findings.5, 6 In addition, measurements of metabolites such as methylmalonic acid and homocysteine have been shown to be more sensitive in diagnosing deficiency Measurement of levels of vitamin B12 in serum B12 alone.

In a large study 10 of 406 patients with vitamin B12 deficiency is known, 98.4 percent had high levels of serum methylmalonic acid, and 95.9 percent had elevated serum homocysteine (defined as three standard deviations above average). Only one patient of 406 had normal levels of both metabolites, resulting in a sensitivity of 99.8 percent when methylmalonic acid and homocysteine are used for diagnosis. Interestingly, 28 percent of patients in this study had normal hematocrit levels, and 17 percent had normal mean corpuscular volumes.

In another study of patients with pernicious anemia who had not received maintenance injections of vitamin B12 for months or years, the increase of methylmalonic acid and homocysteine was found to precede the decrease of vitamin B12 in serum and decreased hematocrit. This finding suggests that methylmalonic acid and homocysteine levels may be early markers of vitamin B12 from tissues, even before hematologic manifestations occur.

The use of homocysteine and methylmalonic acid in diagnosing vitamin B12 deficiency has led to surprising results. If the rate of increase of methylmalonic acid and homocysteine levels or normalization of these metabolites in response to replacement therapy are used as diagnostic criteria for vitamin B12 deficiency, approximately 50 percent of these patients had levels vitamin B12 in serum above 200 pg / mL.1 This observation suggests that the use of a low level of vitamin B12 in serum as the only means of diagnosis may miss up to half of patients with deficiency Vitamin B12 of real fabric. Other studies have shown similar results, with the rate of misdiagnosis ranging from 10 to 26 percent when the diagnosis is based on low serum vitamin B12 alone.

There are, however, some caveats to keep in mind. Looking at the reactions that the use of vitamin B12, 3 high levels of methylmalonic acid is much more specific for vitamin B12 deficiency a high level of homocysteine. Vitamin B12 or folic acid can cause homocysteine levels to rise, so folic acid levels should be monitored in patients with isolated hyperhomocysteinemia.

In addition, folic acid deficiency can cause falsely low vitamin B12 serum. One study found that about one third of patients with folate deficiency had low levels of vitamin B12 in serum, less than 100 pg / ml (74 pmol / L) in some patients. In addition, methylmalonic acid levels may be elevated in patients with renal impairment (the result of the decrease in urinary excretion), and high levels must be interpreted with caution.

   Nutritional Deficiency

Dietary sources of vitamin B12 are primarily meats and dairy products. In a typical Western diet, a person obtains approximately 5 to 15 mcg of vitamin B12 daily, much more than the recommended daily allowance of 2 mcg. Normally, humans maintain a large vitamin B12 reserve, which can last two to five years even in the presence of severe malab-sorption. Nevertheless, nutritional deficiency can occur in specific populations. Elderly patients with “tea and toast” diets and chronic alcoholics are at especially high risk. The dietary limitations of strict vegans make them another, less common at-risk population. 

   Malabsorption Syndromes

The classic disorder of malabsorption is pernicious anemia, an autoimmune disease that affects the gastric parietal cells. Destruction of these cells curtails the production of intrinsic factor and subsequently limits vitamin B12 absorption. Laboratory evidence of parietal cell antibodies is approximately 85 to 90 percent sensitive for the diagnosis of pernicious anemia. However, the presence of parietal cell antibodies is nonspecific and occurs in other autoimmune states. Intrinsic factor antibody is only 50 percent sensitive, but it is far more specific for the diagnosis of pernicious anemia.

A Schilling test, which distinguishes intrinsic factor-related malabsorption, can be used to diagnose pernicious anemia. Specifically, Schilling test results were once used to determine whether a patient required parenteral or oral vitamin B12 supplementation. This distinction is now unnecessary, because evidence points to a B12 absorption pathway independent of intrinsic factor, and studies have proved that oral replacement is equal in efficacy to intramuscular therapy. Regardless of the test result, successful treatment can still be achieved with oral replacement therapy.

   Oral vs. Parenteral Therapy

Because most clinicians are generally unaware that oral vitamin B12 therapy is effective, the traditional treatment for B12 deficiency has been intramuscular injections. However, since as early as 1968, oral vitamin B12 has been shown to have an efficacy equal to that of injections in the treatment of pernicious anemia and other B12 deficiency states. Although the majority of dietary vitamin B12 is absorbed in the terminal ileum through a complex with intrinsic factor, evidence for the previously mentioned alternate transport system is mounting.

In one study, patients with vitamin B12 deficiency were randomized to receive oral or parenteral therapy. Patients in the parenteral therapy group received 1,000 mcg of vitamin B12 intramuscularly on days 1, 3, 7, 10, 14, 21, 30, 60, and 90, while those in the oral treatment group received 2,000 mcg daily for 120 days. At the end of 120 days, patients who received oral therapy had significantly higher serum vitamin B12 levels and lower methyl-malonic acid levels than those in the parenteral therapy group. The actual transport mechanism used in this pathway remains unproved, but vitamin B12 is thought to be absorbed “en masse” in high doses. Surprisingly, one study showed that even in patients who had undergone gastrectomy, vitamin B12 deficiency could be easily reversed with oral supplementation.

Intramuscular injections, although safe and inexpensive, have several drawbacks. Injections are painful, medical personnel giving the injections are placed at risk of needlestick injuries, and administration of intramuscular injections often adds to the cost of therapy. Treatment schedules for intramuscular administration vary widely but usually consist of initial loading doses followed by monthly maintenance injections. One regimen consists of daily injections of 1,000 mcg for one to two weeks, then a maintenance dose of 1,000 mcg every one to three months.

Although the daily requirement of vitamin B12 is approximately 2 mcg, the initial oral replacement dosage consists of a single daily dose of 1,000 to 2,000 mcg. This high dose is required because of the variable absorption of oral vitamin B12 in doses of 500 mcg or less. This regimen has been shown to be safe, cost-effective, and well tolerated by patients.

How food affects our lives Love

You may remember the scene from the film Tom Jones, then placed in Flashdance, where the characters of men and women eat slowly, sensually, chomping on a chicken leg (I think it was), slurping and licking fingers, looking at the challenge each other - without touching or removing a single piece of clothing, the scene was truly one of the most erotic film history,

Food of course has to do with sex. What about the double meaning of certain words in our language? Notice "cheese", "melon", "nuts", "plate", "honey" honey bunch "," my sweet "," Sweetie Pie ", and variations. And, of course, the ultimate expression of joy, "I could eat!"

All cultures have foods that are considered an aphrodisiac. For example, saffron in Spain, the bird's nest soup in China, the hump camel among the Arabs of cocoa for the Aztecs. He says, for example, that Montezuma had 600 concubines, and to address their drinking 50 cups of cocoa a day from a golden chalice. Over time, almost all interesting and exotic foods, especially if you remember the sexual organs of male or female, has been used to inspire and stimulate the desire of performance: bananas, peaches, berries, figs, dates, asparagus, nuts, seeds, stuffed dates, sea urchins, to name a few.
 


   Levels of influence: how food relates to sex

1. sensory evaluation of food can be sexually attractive and impressive for its consistency (soft, slippery, slurpy, such as oysters), the form or appearance (eg bananas, asparagus, cucumbers, pomegranates), and also the attitude with which ate (if slowly, sensually, with eye contact).

2. Romantic, sentimental: what matters here is the environment, atmosphere, soft lighting, pleasant music, beautiful flowers. These can lead to intimacy, relaxation, receptivity, good memories.

3. Chemistry: Many foods claim to have aphrodisiac properties also contain important nutrients for the proper functioning of sexual organs. Oysters, for example, are rich in zinc, essential for good prostate health and testosterone production in men and estrogen balance in women.

4. Social: social partners beliefs, customs and rituals of a group or society of food will be preliminary and suggestive of the sexual encounter, others will be considered to inhibit or enhance sex. In our society, caviar and champagne are the seduction of traditional foods.

5. Energy: Different foods affect the body's energy flow in a different way to relax (alcohol) or energy (proteins), if necessary. Contrast figures. If caviar and champagne is not active because you're a committed vegetarian / health food person, try the sparkling cider and Greek black olives. same energy flavor: sweet / acid, dark and tasty.

6. Intentional Magic: This level reflects the spirit and intent of those who offer or cooks the meals, but also manifests itself in the agreement between the parties (oral or implied) as to its purpose.

   Nutrients important to sexual functioning

As mentioned above, zinc is a key nutrient needed for this function, which is found in red meat, oysters, pumpkin seeds, organ meats and organic eggs. Refined sugar, flour and rice are deficient in zinc. Deficiency causes discoloration of hair and nails, hair loss, poor circulation, impotence, lack of ovulation or menstruation, psychotic symptoms, slow healing, and hyperactivity in children. Whole grains because they contain zinc, also contain phytates, which inhibit absorption, soak the corn overnight before cooking inactivates the phytates.

According to nutritionist Anne Louise Gittleman, author of SuperNutrition for men, the other important nutrients:
 ~ potassium (found in fruits and vegetables, whole)
 ~ selenium (found in organic butter, herring, tuna, whole grains, brazil nuts, and sesame seeds)
 ~ manganese (in nuts, seeds and whole grains),
 ~ phosphorus (abundant in whole grains, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds, brewer's yeast and '),
 ~ Vitamin E (found in eggs, whole grains, organ meats, sweet potatoes, almonds and green vegetables)
 ~ Vitamin C (found in fruits and whole vegetables, especially citrus, melon, on strawbeapter. He said: "In the aphrodisiac dinner ... the number of dishes should be very limited. Whenever possible, you should do with one dish and in any case, you should have enough to eat .... In very favorable conditions, the effects of an aphrodisiac meal are almost instantaneous. "Here is a recipe adapted from his book. Aphrodisiac or not is still quite tasty.

   Cepes (or other wild mushrooms) with garlic and eggs
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons unsalted organic butter
12 cloves garlic, cleaned but not peeled
12 oz fresh wild mushrooms, wiped clean, cut into strips
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
½ teaspoon dried tarragon, crushed
2 organic eggs (duck eggs, if available, are preferred)


1. Heat oil and butter in a skilled workforce, and add garlic. Simmer, uncovered, for 10-12 minutes without the brown butter.

2. Remove cover, reduce heat in its entirety and add the sliced mushrooms. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and tarragon and cook until mushrooms have declined and released its liquid, about 5-6 minutes. Remove from heat.

3. Remove the garlic cloves. According to the taste of Diner's, or squeeze out of their skin and add the mushrooms, remove or keep for another use.

4. Return pan to heat. Break the eggs into the pan and stir the mixture with a wooden spoon until the cooking time just set. Serve immediately with salad dressing wild mustard.

On a hot summer night, try a fruit salad with a spell, adapted from Scott Cunningham, "The Magic in Food" (Llewellyn Publications, St. Paul, MN: 1992)

   FRUIT SALAD SPELL

                                              Make a fruit salad with mango, pine nuts, apple, peach, banana, cherry. Add a little orange juice, and, if desired, a tablespoon or two of sherry or brandy. Toss and serve within 2 hours at room temperature. While making the salad, repeat the following thoughts:

                                  Fruit of mango, fruit of pine,
                                  Let the one I love be mine
                                  Fruit of apple, fruit of peach,
                                  Bring him (her) within my reach.
                                  Fruit of banana, fruit of cherry,
                                  Let his (her) love for me not vary.
                                 As I work my magic spell,
                                 Warmly in his (her) heart I dwell.
                                 I now invoke all help from thee,
                                 my one and only, come to me.

Antioxidants: What You Need to Know

 What are antioxidants?

The cells of our body is exposed to oxygen every day. Oxygen is vital for the health of your body, but also exposure to oxygen causes oxidation. In oxidation, chemicals in the body are modified to become what is called free radicals. Exposure to environmental factors such as exposure to sunlight, cigarette smoke, alcohol and pollution, it also creates free radicals.

Over the years, free radicals can cause chain reactions in your body as chemicals important organ damage, DNA and the parts of your cells. Some cells may recover, while others are permanently damaged. Scientists believe that free radicals may contribute to aging and diseases such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease.

Antioxidants are natural substances that can stop or limit the damage caused by free radicals. The body uses antioxidants to stabilize free radicals. This prevents them from causing damage to other cells. Antioxidants may protect and repair the damage caused by oxidation to some extent.


                                     

  Where are antioxidants found?

The body produces antioxidants to fight free radicals formed by the normal processes of the body. Your body can also get antioxidants from a healthy diet. Among the foods rich in antioxidants include fruits and vegetables rich in nutrients such as vitamins A, C and E, beta-carotene, lutein, lycopene and selenium.

Some people choose to take supplements of antioxidants. Talk to your doctor if you plan to add a supplement to your diet. Many supplements do not contain a balance of vitamins, minerals and enzymes and may even have a negative effect on your health.

  What foods are good sources of antioxidants?

To obtain more antioxidants, eat a diet that includes a healthy mix of colorful fruits and vegetables and other foods rich in antioxidants:
  ~ Vitamin A is found in milk, liver, butter and eggs.
  ~ Vitamin C is found in most fruits and vegetables. Those with the highest amount of vitamin C include papaya, strawberries, oranges, melons and kiwi fruit and peppers, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, tomatoes, cauliflower and cabbage.
  ~ Vitamin E is found in some nuts and seeds, almonds, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts and peanuts. It can also be found in green leafy vegetables like spinach and cabbage, and oils such as soybean, sunflower, corn and canola.
  ~ Beta-carotene is found in colorful fruits and vegetables, including carrots, peas, melons, apricots, papaya, mango, peach, pumpkin, apricots, broccoli, sweet potatoes and squash. It can also be found in some leafy greens, including chard, spinach and cabbage.
  ~ Lutein is found in green leafy vegetables like spinach, chard and kale, broccoli, corn, peas, papaya and oranges.
  ~ Lycopene is found in fruits and vegetables, red and pink, as pink grapefruit, watermelon, apricots and tomatoes.
  ~ Selenium is found in cereals (corn, wheat and rice), nuts, legumes, animal products (meat, fish, turkey, chicken, eggs and cheese), bread and pasta.
The best way to get antioxidants is a diet with plenty of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, seeds and nuts. Variety is also important. If you take a multivitamin supplement, be cautious. Too much of certain nutrients, like vitamins A and E and selenium can be harmful. Make sure you talk with your doctor before taking vitamin supplements.
