Jonny Bowden, Ph.D., C.N.S., has created one of the most vital books on the health of your family you will ever find, The 150 Healthiest Food on Earth. The lavishly illustrated, 358-page weighty tome gives you more vital information on foods that can keep your family healthy than any other publication I have ever come across. And I am always on the look out. I have given the book to family members and often advise it for others. My goal here is pass on ideas that perhaps you did not previously know about.
Oregano: Jonny describes oregano as the herb with the highest antioxidant activity. According to a study published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, oregano has 42 times more antioxidant activity than apples, 30 times more than potatoes, 12 times more than oranges, and, maybe the most surprising of all, 4 times more than the amazing blueberries. Jonny adds that oregano has antibacterial properties, anti-carcinogenic properties, and anti-inflammatory properties. This herb’s oil has been used as a digestive aid.
