A balanced review of "heart healthy" foods
The media seems to love the numerous studies about diets and foods, each hoping and promising to be the simple solution to your ailments. If you find all the conflicting reports confusing, you might enjoy this article from the Washington Post, which is actually reprinted from a book by Robert Davis called "Coffee is Good for You". Anyway, it succinctly summarizes the current data on several foods at just how healthy they are for you including: coffee, coca, olive oil, fish oil, nuts, and more. For background, Davis is a PhD at Emory. He has blogged over at the HuffPo in January on food label tricks to avoid and he runs a website called everwell.com.
