In brief: Very little..l
I don't think there's been a food that hasn't been pronounced really good or really bad for this or that.
These fall into a few categories. Read it in this journal/paper, so it is true. Anecdotal, one or few people are convinced that it helped them, and expound it is good for all. And placebo effect, where trusted physician prescribes a rx for specific prob and it works--this is real 33% of time!

Bravo Dr. Kurzeil. Listen to Dr's like this one who try to overcome the hype to sell something.Your Mom led you right:eat a wide verity of our bountiful pantry here in the USA and you will not be ill for lack of nutrients .Be thankful:i've worked in countries where diet (lack of food) made disease much more of a problem.
