How to Get What You Pay For
September 8, 2009 4 Comments
We take medicine to make us feel better when we get sick. We undergo all kind of treatments to get rid of diseases such as cancer and diabetes, and we pay oodles of money for these treatments.
What if we could avoid these illnesses in the first place? Would you pay more for something if you knew it would prevent you from getting cancer?
Unfortunately, it is hard to quantify exactly how many blueberries you need to eat to prevent cancer. BUT, in a test tube, it has been proven that chemicals that exist naturally in blueberries inhibit cancer cell development.
Blueberries are low in calorie, taste delicious, and give your body the compounds it needs to help prevent cancer. What more can you ask for from a food?
What is missing from blueberries to make them perfect is the price. We all know that fresh blueberries are pretty expensive. They can cost over $3.50 a pint. Keep in mind that eating them can help you avoid the massive expense (not to mention the pain) of getting cancer and that price will seem like a bargain.
Add them to your breakfast cereal, or just put some in a container to take to work. Buy the frozen ones (they cost less but don't taste as good) and add them to your pancakes. If you are lucky enough to live near a blueberry farm, pick a bunch and freeze them.
Be sure to put them on a cookie sheet in the freezer and then put them in a plastic bag. Putting them in a plastic bag before you freeze them makes them clump together.
