Here is a list of foods that are really good for you. If you are a food logger, you'll recognized that any of these that you've tried really move the nutrition needle. Except that I've never used enough turmeric or cinnamon at one time to even log it.

More good news for flaxseed eaters. Researchers at Duke say that the little jewels "stunt the growth of prostate tumors."
Earlier studies showed that men who took flaxseeds along with a low fat diet experienced shrinkage in prostate tumors. This study demonstrated that taking the flaxseeds alone shrunk the tumors. Therefore, it's the flax. Just the flax, ma'am.
