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?

Well, they’re both good. Recent research, for example, found black beans have “potent inhibitory activity” against human colon, liver, and breast cancer cells, and in last year year’s review, I talked about pinto beans knocking down our cholesterol 20 points.

But, which is healthier? Black beans.
