DESCRIPTION: Increasing the intake of potassium-rich foods is associated with a significantly lower stroke risk. Very few people are eating enough plants—see yesterday's NutritionFacts.org video-of-the-day 98% of American Diets Potassium Deficient (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/98-of...). The banana listing reminds me of a similarly humorous finding about the levels of eyesight-saving nutrients. See Egg Industry Blind Spot (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/egg-i...). Bananas are also kind of pitiful antioxidant-wise (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/best-...). Is a fruit a fruit or should we really go out of our way to eat plants with the most antioxidants? See Anti-Inflammatory Antioxidants (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/anti-...). Tomorrow I'll end this three part video series with a surprising twist—the anti-inflammatory effects of potassium? Stay tuned for Potassium and Autoimmune Disease (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/potas...).
