Eat Some Berries
Snacking on a mix of strawberries and blueberries may lower your risk of a heart attack. In a study published in the journal Circulation, researchers found that women between the ages of 25 and 42 who ate three or more servings a week reduced their risk of the number-one killer by 34 percent, compared with women who ate them once a month or less. Here’s another reason to smile: Strawberries may make your teeth whiter, says Irwin Smigel, D.D.S., the president of the American Society of Aesthetic Dentists. They contain malic acid, which acts as a natural astringent, removing surface stains from teeth and lightening mild discoloration.
