Vegetables, all in all, are good for you -- in fact, for most of us they're a key part of healthy eating. ...Read more

Can you tell me the specific foods for persons who has gouty arthritis?

Can you tell me the specific foods for persons who has gouty arthritis?

Gout diet/purines: Avoid purines in your diet. What you put in your mouth can affect the gout flare-ups as much as medications.

Suggest not eating shellfish (lobster, crab, shrimp, mussel, clams). *processed meat has animal organs, a classic "no-no". ...Read more

Doctor suggested to take tomato, sweet potato, broccoli to keep skin young and charm but do I need to take these in cooked state or uncooked state?Thx.

It depends: Raw food advocates would advise raw tomato & broccoli, which is ok, but cooking lightly may increase absorption of nutrients. Saute tomatoes over low heat in olive oil to increase absorption of lycopene. Slice broccoli into small pieces, sprinkle with lemon juice, let sit for 5 min. Then steam for 3 minutes- see http://www.Whfoods.Com/genpage.Php?Tname=george&dbid=64 bake sweet potato thoroughly. ...Read more
