Enjoy Your Carrots & Celery

New research reveals that carrots and celery may help lower your risk of colon cancer... and they work really well as Super Bowl snacks too!

In the study, doctors discovered the antioxidant luteolin is capable of blocking the cell signals needed for colon cancer growth. Previous research has shown luteolin might be a cancer-preventing agent, but this new study is the first to show that the antioxidant inhibits cell signals needed for growth. It's important because excluding skin cancers, colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the U.S.

Vegan Football Star

Atlanta Falcons Tight End Tony Gonzalez is a ten-time Pro Bowl selection who currently holds the NFL records for single season receptions (102) by a tight end, career touchdowns by a tight end (76), career receptions by a tight end (916), and reception yards by a tight end (10,940). And he’s vegan!

After reading The China Study, the 6-foot-5, 251-lb. athlete experimented with veganism. In 2008—his first meat-free season—Gonzalez stuck to his diet and broke two major records for his position. "I have so much more energy when I'm out there," he said. And he's not alone.

In baseball, Milwaukee Brewers slugger Prince Fielder is proving vegan can hit home runs at a prodigious rate. Also, there's mixed martial arts fighter Mac Danzig, ultra-marathoner Scott Jurek, and other athletes both staying green and excelling in their sports.

Gonzalez has become a spokesman for healthy eating. “In this league, you think you’re invincible,” he said. “Then you look at some of the numbers, that the average football player dies young. I’m sure there are other reasons, but eating unhealthy foods and carrying around all that extra weight can’t help. “I realized football’s not going to last forever. To me this isn’t a diet. It’s a complete lifestyle change.”
