    Healthy Foods for Older People

    Healthy Foods for older people to prevent prostrate cancer, risk of diabetes, heart disease include whole grains, salmon, cherries, cabbage, walnuts,tomatoes and peanut butter and their health benefits

    Adding these foods to your diet can reduce your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes and many cancers.

    And, adding some variety if you don't have some texture in your salad or new taste in your main course will be the cheapest way to live better and healthier.

    However, before modifying your diet, consult your doctor, and compare your current general health and the foods you need to be eating.

    This is what everyone should be eating.

    Whole Grains

    For protection against heart disease, stroke and diabetes, as well filling you up quickly to prevent overeating.

    Get it from food marked "whole" grain - three daily servings from oats, whole wheat, brown rice, bulgur and bran.

    Salmon – Strong Bones

    Omega-3 fatty acids, which preserves bones, good for nerve health, and may also reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol, and help prevent heart disease. Salmon can also fight depression/mood disorders and reduce arthritis pain. Get it from other cold-water fish like sardines, tuna and mackerel.

    Cherries: Nature's Pain Killer

    Reduces c-reactive protein (CRP)- something in the body makes to respond to acute inflammation.

    Yogurt – Friendly Bacteria

    Probiotics, or good bacteria that fights illness, disease and also fend off pneumonia, get it from yogurt containing "live” or “active” cultures


    Apart from fighting breast cancer, it can also protect against lung, stomach and colon cancers.


    Omega 3 fatty acid reduces "bad” cholesterol. Other nuts like almonds and pistachios also contains arginine, which may increase blood flow to the heart. Eat in moderation due to high fat and calorie content.

    Blueberries – Antioxidant Loaded

    The low fat berry contains a lot of Vitamin C and two grams of fiber. It also reduces brain damage from stroke,dementia and restores cells to healthy levels.


    Fighting colon cancer, along with being a good source of protein, antioxidants dietary fiber.

    Beans also decrease blood pressure and “bad” cholesterol.

    2-4 servings a week.


    Prostate health, as well as protecting against lung and stomach cancers.

    Peanut Butter

    Healthier than butter, it also protects against diabetes and heart disease, along with improved glucose and insulin stability. Peanut butter is also a good source of fiber.
