Seven Best and Seven Worst Foods

By Joel Fuhrman, MD

Top Seven Longevity Foods

  1. Black raspberries

  2. Strawberries

  3. Blueberries

  4. Flax Seeds

  5. Raw greens

  6. Tomatoes

  7. Broccoli sprouts


The above foods contain high antioxidant capacity. These foods were chosen because of discovery of the most powerful phytochemicals and anthocyanins which illustrate strong inhibition of chemocarcinogens.

Other foods with high antioxidant and high anti-cancer potential include walnuts, sunflower seeds, pomegranates, beets, cabbage, peppers, and parsley.

Make your diet magically protective by including these highly beneficial foods. Produce is the most important health care your money can buy.


Top seven foods of death

  1. Butter

  2. Cheese

  3. Potato Chips and French Fries

  4. Doughnuts

  5. Salt

  6. Sausage, hot dogs

  7. Pickled, smoked or barbecued meat


These are effective foods for those attempting to die younger. How many of those people do you know?

Foods high in saturated fat and trans fat are consistently associated with high cancer rates. Cheese and butter typically contain over 10 times as much saturated fat as fish and white meat chicken and turkey.

Salt has been consistently linked to stomach cancer and stroke even in populations that eat diets low in saturated fat.

Add the carcinogenic potential from heated and overcooked oils (usually trans containing) delivered in doughnuts and fries with the powerful cancer inducing properties of carbohydrates cooked at high heat (acrylamide formation) and you have a great cancer potion.

Needless to say, I advise people to avoid the foods on my “worst list” entirely. The best foods to eat are fresh fruits and vegetables. By making these foods the major portion of your diet, you can protect yourself magically against cancer and other serious diseases and extend your youthful vigor into later years.
