Are superfoods all they're cracked up to be? [news]
One trend that never seems to go away is the concept of ‘superfoods’. Superfoods, according to the many articles you’ll find on the subject if you Google, are foods jam-packed with nutritional goodness and incredible health benefits. Depending on what you read, superfoods are said to protect against cancer and heart disease, lower cholesterol, encourage weight loss, reverse diabetes, improve digestive health and even help us live longer. The implication is that they are somehow ‘better’ than the regular old foods we might be eating day to day.
