What four letter food is associated with reduced blood pressure and body fat?

Discuss
Republish

Blank consumption—four letters—is associated with greater nutrient intake, reduced blood pressure, lower body weight, and a slimmer waist—all things that most Americans could use.

Let’s fill in the blank.

Are beans the answer to America’s health problems? Beer? Beef? Beets? Dates? Corn? Chai tea? Cake consumption is probably a stretch. What about fish? Flax? Lime? Milk? Plums? Rice? Mass taco consumption? Or wine?

And the superfood answer is… Could still be beer. Bean consumption: more nutrients, and better blood pressure, weight, and waist control.

    1. I just looked this up in wikipedia. It looks like dal refers to a way of prepairing pulses – peas, lentils, mung beans, and even kidney beans, when hulled and split can be called dal (although it looks like only a subset of these categories). I didn’t see whether there was an American name for the urad dal, though. I haven’t seen a black lentil or similar at my local health food store…

    1. Cooking deactivates these anti-nutrients which include lectins, phytic acid, trypsin and α-amylase inhibitors. The paleo folks seem to always leave this information out. I don’t know anyone who consumes uncooked rice or beans.
