Avocados and nutritional science: implications for cancer treatment

ImageIf i were to ask you which fruit or vegetable is the richest in potassium, I bet many would reply (like I did): bananas! But no, but no. Turns out that bananas, although potassium-rich, are far behind (in fact, 35% behind!) those wholesome, delicious, nutritious avocados.

In addition to potassium, an avocado would inject you wit A, C, D, E, K and the B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12 and folate). Avocados are rich in monosaturated fats and magnesium. And if there are any residual doubts that consuming avocados can add years to your arteries…well, Persea americana Mill (avocado) root bark as been shown to provide a compound which, when isolated, proved to be lethal to specific cancer cells. See for yourselves!


So what the heck: chop up a large cucumber, two medium sized plum tomatoes, and a large avocado, add salt, pepper, garlic, parsley, lemon juice, and some aged balsamic. The fats present in the avocado will be more than sufficient to help absorb all those nutritionally unsaturated hydrocarbons (such as vitamin A and carotenes) –fat-soluble nutrients–critical for retinal health and good vision!
