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.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Jonny writes that EVOO has been shown to reduce blood pressure, as well as the need for blood pressure medication, by a whopping amount. According to Jonny, olive oil decreases risk of colon and bowel cancer. Dr. Mark Houston, director of the Hypertension Institute at St.Thomas Hospital, is Jonny’s go-to guy for all things related to hypertension. Dr. Houston is cited as believing that monosaturated fats make nitric acid more bioavailable, which makes it better able to keep the arteries dilated.
