Great article, Snerfu. A lot of very useful information. I've been a spices and herbs fan for the past few years and I live in country where fresh fruit and vegetables are plentiful and varied. Many varieties that are common here are not available in western countries.

Yes RBB1010, food helps you get into gear and rev up those engines. But actually, I eat what I like most of the time.

I have to agree with RBB1010. Although genetics plays a big role, what we eat has considerable impact on our health and longevity.

Our culture determines our diet and our genes are adapted to that regime. I love good Indian food and I am glad there is plenty of good nutritious items included.
