    Default Can A Single Foodstuff Have Amazing Health Benefits

    You’ve probably read the stories proclaiming that eating blueberries reduces your risk of dementia, or red wine is good for your heart, or coffee protects against type 2 diabetes – or, indeed, many of the other big health claims for a particular “superfood”. But what is the truth in these statements?

    While we – a group of nutritional scientists – have been involved in this kind of research, we are not responsible for the headlines. Underneath those attention-grabbing stories, however, there is important and serious research that will help to keep us all happier and healthier.

    We study parts of foods called bioactives that have an effect on health (either good or bad).

    This is a serious, brief but in-depth look at why some foods have seeming super powers. In fact, the source, The Conversation, is an Australian publication that I would put in the same class as England's The Guardian and like The Guardian, they have a US edition. I would strongly recommend subscribing, especially when you know how hard it is to find an unbiased media source. There is no charge.
