According to Dr. Greger, the intake of legumes may be the single most important dietary predictor of a long lifespan, but what about the gas? Many people don’t like beans, some from the taste, others the gas. Beans can taste all different ways depending on how you make them. All cultures use them in their dishes. Find a recipe you like and make your beans. Gas mostly comes from the skins. Wash your beans thoroughly before use. This will minimize the gas effect.  1/2 cup of beans added to people’s diet had not added symptoms.

Beans may be the real fountain of youth.  The gas negativity seems to be a myth that has gone viral! Don’t let it cause you to stay away from the fountain of youth. Try making beans in many different diets to see what you like. Substituting beans for meat several times a week could help your family live longer and be healthier.

Beans give a lot of protein (plant-based protein instead of animal protein) but remember we Americans eat way too much protein and it’s mostly animal protein. Animal protein can cause serious chronic illness.
