Delicious Heart Health

13 Mar

Health is delicious! NPR interviewed researcher Sheila West, whose Penn State studies have shown that well-spiced food can significantly lower triglycerides. In some cases, triglycerides were decreased by one third. Insulin levels were also lowered by 20%. UCLA cardiologist Dave Ravi says that lowering one’s triglycerides helps lower the risk of metabolic syndrome and heart disease Cinnamon, cloves, turmeric, paprika, rosemary, ginger, oregano, and garlic were all used in the studies.

This has motivated me to invest in a cute spice rack.
And what better spice rack for a science nerd than one made of beakers?


Science has never been so delicious.
