Eat Right for Your Type: The Individualized Diet Solution to Staying Healthy, Living Longer & Achieving Your Ideal Weight 
Peter D'Adamo makes a persuasive argument that your blood type is an evolutionary marker that tells you which foods you'll process best, and which will be useless calories. He covers the entire range for each of the four blood types, from entrees to condiments and seasonings, and also makes type-specific exercise and lifestyle recommendations.

Proper Nutrition


A healthful diet rich in fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy products, might prevent high blood pressure in the first place and thus avoid the need to take medication.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

New research suggests that once a week serving of SALMON containing beneficial omega-3 fatty acids, can dramatically cut your risk of coronary heart disease. 
Compare with those who ate no fish, the study participants who ate a serving a week had a 50-percent lower risk. 
Omega-3 fatty acids reduce the risk for cardiac arrest by strengthening our arteries, lowering blood-fat levels and preventing blood clots. Researchers in Holland reported that a weekly serving of any fish dramatically reduced the incidence of strokes. Other studies have linked salmon consumption to lower rates of diabetes.
ORANGES are a great way to get your vitamin C, which may reduce risk of many disease, but you may be tossing away some of the fruit's most healthful parts-flavonoids cluster in the orange's peel and white, pithy part underneath. 
A smear of orange marmalade, made with jellied orange peel can give you some of these healthful chemicals, which may reduce risk of lung, stomach and cervical cancers. 

A compound formed naturally in the stomach's juices during digestion is believed to be a factor in gastric cancers. This is especially true  among  people who eat processed rather than fresh  foods. In a Chinese study, researchers gave people two grams of a powder made from dried orange  peel  after  each  meal. The  powder  lowered  the  amount  of  these  toxic compounds by 53 % in those with healthy stomachs and by 62 % in those who already had gastric cancer.

Hot peppers, or chilies, contain capsaicin, a substance that can help reduce nasal and sinus congestion.
AVOCADO is an excellent source of monounsaturated fat - the hearth healthy kind that lowers bad LDL cholesterol. 
A recent Mexican study compared diets low in saturated fat. During the first diet, volunteers ate avocados as their major source of fat. Then they ate the same diet with out avocados. In both diets bad LDL cholesterol levels decreased. The diet without avocado produced significantly lower  levels of the good HDL  cholesterol and  higher levels of triglycerides. The Australian Avocado Growers' Federation financed a similar study at Wesley Hospital in Brisbane. Researchers there found that a three-week diet high in monounsaturated fat , which included between a half and 1 1/2 avocado a day, was just effective in lowering bad LDL cholesterol as the low-fat, high-complex-carbohydrate diet recommended by the American Heart Association. Still, dieters should beware, since avocados contain about 350 calories each. 
TOMATOES are a uniquely rich source of lycopene, an antioxidant that may stop the cell damage that can trigger cancer.
A six-year Harvard University study of 47,000 men found that men who ate at least ten servings a week of tomato based food were 45 % less likely to get prostate cancer than those who had less than two servings a week. Men who ate four to seven servings cut their risk by 20 %. The Harvard study found that cooked tomato sauce offered better protection than raw tomatoes; and scientists believe that the heat bursts tomato cells so they release even more lycopene. Cooking them in oil dramatically increases the amount of lycopene the body can absorb. Women benefit as well. An Italian study including both sexes reported that eating three or more servings of raw tomatoes per week significantly decreased the risk for stomach and rectal cancers. 

Eating cheeses, including cheddar and mozzarella, at the end of a meal can help protect teeth by neutralizing the mouth acids that promote decay. But be careful, because most cheese is high in fat and cholesterol. People with a weight or cholesterol problem - should regard it as an occasional treat and choose cheeses with a lower fat content.

Adequate consumption of calcium rich foods throughout life ( milk, cheese and other milk products ) may prevent osteoporosis, a bone disease which affects many women in the years after menopause.
