We know cocoa is good for us. What about carob? Harmful? Just harmless? Or, helpful?

Wonderful stuff. There’s not a big carob lobby, so there hasn’t been much research. But this year, we did learn that, in the very least, carob can protect human colon cells from DNA damage.

To see any graphs, charts, graphics, images, and quotes to which Dr. Greger may be referring, watch the above video. This is just an approximation of the audio contributed by veganmontreal.
