Nutrition Fast Fact

Don’t Forget the Beans

All over the world, despite great differences in climate & culture, what’s common to the diets of the longest-lived peoples? Beans! Legumes, chickpeas, black or white beans, or soybeans — all are packed with protein, complex carbs (prebiotics for your healthy gut), essential vitamins & minerals, and unique phytonutrients. As one example of the science: the largest analysis of diet and cancer ever done recommended a serving of beans with every meal to cut cancer risk, a habit Dr. Greger also espouses in the Daily Dozen guidelines.
