Through clinical studies, observation of long-lived societies and chemical analysis of foods and the substances they contain, a variety of foods have been identified as "superfoods". The vitamins, minerals, fats and other substances particular to these foods have been found to greatly extend life, sooth food allergies and prevent illness.
The superfoods include:
Fruits Organic or frozen non-organic only:
Blueberries Lemons Grapefruits Limes Raspberries Bananas Tomatoes Oranges Nectarines Apples Organic and non-organic:
Noni fruit juice Aloe Vera Papaya Mango Avocado Tomato based sauces Coconut (not canned) Cranberries Pineapple Vegetables Organic Only:

Studies of these foods have revealed that they fight: viruses, fungus, bad bacteria, heart disease, diabetes and mental health disturbances. Coconut oil has even been shown to raise IQ and ease aggression because it contains DHA and AHA. These fatty acids are also found in human breast milk and are now being extracted from coconut oil and added to infant formulas. Dr. Steven Pratt, whose list of recommended foods is less extensive than this one, says "The right foods can actually change the course of your biochemistry. They can help to stop the damage at cellular levels that can develop into disease." Dr. Steven Pratt is a Californian Plastic Surgeon.
World-renowned researcher DDS Weston A. Price also promoted these foods based on his worldwide study of indigenous societies as well has his laboratory findings. Dr. Price's Foundation has recommended these foods since his death in the forties and his recommendations continue to be validated by scientific studies.
