Medical research has shown a very strong link between eating the right foods and health. Many experts suggest that some diseases such as diabetes, certain cancers, and heart disease can be prevented through eating a healthy diet. This diet should include vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat dairy and lean protein sources. While some of this may seem obvious, many underestimate the power of these healthy foods. Saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, salt, and added sugars should be limited and of course regular exercise is a must.
