Transcript: Pinto Beans vs. Black Beans
Next! You walk into a chipotle and order a veggie burrito and they ask you black beans or pinto beans—what do you say? Which is healthier? How many say black? How many say pinto?
Well, they’re both good. Recent research, for example, found black beans have “potent inhibitory activity” against colon, liver, and breast cancer cells and a half cup of pinto beans a day can drop your cholesterol 20 points!
Same thing with baked beans. Half a cup of vegetarian canned baked beans a day—navy beans this time—and same amazing effect. It was a randomized crossover clinical study with a control group and then the “vegetarian baked bean treatment” group. Of all the treatments in allopathic medicine—radiation treatments, chemotherapy—a vegetarian baked bean treatment probably ain't so bad. Imagine if there were a pill that could do that… and would go good with toast? They’d be makin’ billions.
Anyways, which is healthier? Black beans.
