Many foods that tend to be favorites among men aren’t necessarily the best choices for good health. Just like women, men need certain nutrients, and a healthy diet and regular physical activity can help prevent heart disease and cancer, the No. 1 and No. 2 killers for men over 35.
Eating the right foods can also enhance performance, as well as maintain muscle mass and prevent prostate cancer. But what are these foods
“Nutrients that are good for the heart improve circulation to all parts of the body, and these same nutrients provide a layer of protection against cancer and other chronic diseases,” says Christine Gerbstadt, a Florida-based physician and spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association.
No. 1: Oysters
