“Strawberries provide twice the vitamin C and half the calories and fibre of raspberries. Like celery, strawberries are a good source of 20 different anti-aging trace minerals, including chromium, zinc, and selenium.” – Berries, page 41.

“What is the best way to turn the corner on healing? Put more carrots, squash, broccoli, and dandelion greens on the menu. All four are top-rated sources of beta-carotene, the pro-vitamin-A antioxidant that, says Michiaki Murakoshi of Japan’s Kyoto Prefectural University of Medicine, protects your DNA by inactivating the gene that promotes tumour growth and blocking the growth of malignant cells.” – Beta-Carotene, Page 45.

“Cold cereal is a just-as-healthy alternative if you choose the right ingredients. Best bets: sugar free, low or no sodium, minimally processed, additive-free flaked, puffed, nuggeted, or shredded biscuits from single or multigrain flakes (sold in health food stores and better supermarkets). Top with a low-fat skim milk or a non-dairy substitute milk. Add fruit, nuts, or seeds.” – Breakfast Foods, Page 53.

“Among the foods richest in life-extending, health-enhancing phyto-chemicals that protect all 10 of the body’s healing zones from cancer, cardiovascular disorders, and premature aging, broccoli is the undisputed star of the vegetable crisper and number one on the National Cancer Institute’s list of Nutritional all-stars.” – Broccoli, Page 59.

“Juice fasting is the fastest, safest way to lose 5- 10 pounds without sacrificing essential feel-good nutrients, such as the antioxidant vitamin C complex (the highest concentration on C is found in fresh juices), energizing potassium, calcium, and the anticancer, antitoxin antioxidants.” – Juices, Page 105.

“According to population studies by the National Cancer Institute, various chemicals in onions appear to inhibit the growth of cancerous cells, especially in the gastrointestinal system, and fight against leukaemia.” – Onions, Page 143.
