Prevent ALS With Vegetables

ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, usually develops from age 40 to 70 and is more likely in men than women. If you are in this age range, or approaching it, now is the time to take preventative measures. Thankfully, it can be as easy as adding a few more vegetables to your diet.

The National Business Review reports that research has shown that those with diets rich in antioxidants are less likely to develop ALS. Speficially, Vitamin E and carotenoids, which gives vegetables their vivid colors, keep you at a low risk for ALS.

Sweet potatoes, carrots, squash and tomatoes all supply valuable nutrients to prevent ALS and can easily be incorporated into your diet.
