    Nutrition Action says anti oxidants has not shown, over time, to be the "power house" that they thought and hoped it would be, does not cure anything, for one thing, researchers are disappointed in latest findings. Companies that sell supplements don't tell you that, would lose a lot of business . Billion Dollar business, don't forget it. - 8/17/2015 4:50:58 AM

  • WHERE IS ALL THIS TALK ABOUT ANTIOXIDANTS ARE NOT AS GOOD FOR YOU AS THEY THOUGHT? I DON'T BELIEVE THAT AT ALL. I WOULD JUST LIKE TO KNOW WHERE THAT IS COMING FROM. I HAVE NEVER READ THAT AND I READ A LOT ABOUT WHAT IS HEALTHY AND GOOD FOR YOU. PHYL32 - 4/12/2015 10:27:32 PM

    Too bad they are finding out anti oxidants are not really the "miracle" they hoped they would be, researchers say they expected more from anti oxidants than what is being found out. Don't expect cures of disease from them, and don't go crazy spending tons of money on those foods. - 4/12/2015 8:21:00 AM

  • I love everything on this list except black beans and artichokes. Maybe I'll have to learn to like them. - 1/24/2015 11:20:54 AM
  • Dried beans you have control over how they are processed. You control salt content and you can even try sprouting, but use organic and it takes awhile for the bigger beans. By using dried beans you also save on environmental waste, and you control the serving sizes better. I soak most of mine overnight and then brink to a boil for 20 min and drain the water, this reduces the gas production. I then put fresh water on to boil and cook them until they are the consistency you want. some like them all mushy, some like them in the bean shape, just make sure they are fully cooked first. - 12/11/2014 1:56:51 PM

    Latest research shows scientists are disappointed in anti-oxidants, they are showing up to not be the "be all and end all" that they were first thought to be. So enjoy those foods, but don't expect them to do miracles, either. - 11/1/2014 2:17:30 PM

    I was so surprised to learn about the antioxidant richness of the beans! And, it was reassuring to see that the foods I've really grown to love - artichokes and berries among them - have, over the past several years since I lost my 80 lbs., become real favorites, too. Great news! - 8/11/2014 9:01:02 PM

    Regarding the Acai berries, so far, the only research done on them was done by the companies that process them, NOT any real research has been done, yet, so you have to take any thing touted with a grain of salt. Plus, researchers are sort of disappointed lately that anti oxidants are really not doing all the things that they had hoped they would do, after all. Antioxidant research has to go on for another 30 yrs. to see if they really can do very much. - 8/11/2014 3:27:44 PM

    Can anyone explain the difference in using dried beans vs. canned ??? Is there that much difference and if so what and why. Curious.. Thanks - 8/11/2014 9:35:56 AM
