Have you heard of the polymeal theory - It's a theoretical proposal by researchers in the Netherlands and Melbourne that the following foods - wine, chocolate, garlic, almonds, fish and fruit and veggies - eaten in specific amounts on a daily basis could reduce the risk of cardio-vascular disease by up to 76% and increase life expectancy by, on average, 6.6 years for men and 4.8 years for women.
Want to know more? Then head over to Superliving.com.au . But before you rush off to the supermarket to stock up on the chocolate and red wine, let me stress that the polymeal paper was 'intended to provoke debate' and, as such, has caused a furore in the medical profession.
