Life Lessons (controls) or 30 percent less, regardless of whether the calorie restriction started when the animals were young or old. Monkeys whose calories were cut from a young age were less likely to get cancer than control monkeys, though cutting calories early or late in life had no impact on cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis, or diverticulosis. The NIA results differed from an earlier University of Wisconsin study in which calorierestricted monkeys lived longer. (Rats, mice, dogs, and other animals also have lived longer when calorie-restricted.) However, the NIA control monkeys were fed only as much as they needed, while the Wisconsin controls ate as much as they wanted. It's possible that eating fewer calories than a typical monkey (or, perhaps, human) wants to eat does extend life. What's more, all the Wisconsin monkeys ate a purified diet that was high in sugar and corn starch, which could have put the controls at greater risk. The NIA monkeys ate natural foods. What to do: Don't eat... (November 1, 2012)

In early 2009, we rated dozens of vegetables, giving each one a score based on how much potassium, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, iron, calcium, fiber, and lutein and other carotenoids a typical serving contains.
As you'd expect, leafy greens like kale, spinach, coilards, and Swiss chard rose to the top. Not far below came pumpkin, then sweet potato. Sweets were rated higher than carrots, higher than broccoli, higher than butternut squash.
That explains why a three -ounce serving of McCain Crinkle Cut Sweet Potato Fries (12 to 15 fries) takes care of 100 percent of your vitamin A, 16 percent of your vitamin C, and 7 percent of your potassium for the entire day for just 120 calories and 180 miliigrams of sodium.
But it doesn't explain how incredibly tasty they are. To see that, you'd need about 20 minutes and a 425* oven (ignore the deep-frying instructions).
McCain's sweets aren't the first ones to hit the market. We raved about Ian's Sweet Potato Fries back in 2002. Alexia Sweet Potato Fries are another fine pick.
Like the others, McCain's fries contain some added flour and other fillers and binders, so you're not getting 100 percent sweet potatoes.
But unlike the others, McCain is a mainstream brand. That means it's probably in your supermarket's freezer case, right next to the Crinkle Cut or Steak Cut Fries and other nutritional weakling white potatoes.
