What's more, almonds, which are a good source of protein, fiber and vitamin E, might help reduce a person's risk of Alzheimer's disease. * Coffee: The medical community has varying opinions on coffee, but when consumed in mod- erate doses, coffee might help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and, for men, Parkinson's dis- ease. Coffee might also help improve memory and mood, but adults should consult with their physician for advice as to the medical benefits of coffee. * Grapes: Grapes are a great source of vita- min C and potassium.

While there's no single cause of heart disease, a person's life- style can greatly reduce or increase his or her risk for heart disease. One of the best ways a man or woman can reduce the risk for heart disease is to watch what he or she eats. A poor diet can cause obesity and high cholesterol and increase a person's risk for diabetes. In a 2008 report, the National Center for Health Statistics noted that 33.9 percent of adults in the United States could qualify as overweight or obese in 2005-06. In addition, high blood pressure affected 30.5 percent of adults during that same time period.

Pecans are also full of anti- oxidants, which can strengthen the body's immune system. * Sweet potatoes: Some might scoff at the notion that a food with the word "sweet" in its name can actu- ally be healthy. However, sweet pota- toes are a great source of vitamin A and vitamin C, and they're also high in fiber. Sweet potatoes are also a great source of lycopene, which may help fight heart disease and even certain cancers.
