Superfoods - Which are beneficial? Which are just hype?

There is so much talk lately about Super-foods, those foods which purport to have medicinal (or better) properties.  The site Information is beautiful ranked all the purpoted superfoods; from Garlic to Green Tea to Acai to Walnuts and and interactivly graphs them.

The higher up on the chart the better the evidence for the super-food.  The more to the right the higher amounts of medicinal benefits.  You can filter the results for any number of categories, heart health, aging, cancer, cardio, weight control, etc.  Very interesting...

Help a local business destroyed by the Ferguson Mobs: Natalie's Cakes and More Fund

The Ferguson, Missouri mobs and looters absolutely destroyed a local business owned by Natalie Dubose.  But we can help Natalie rebuild.  GoFundMe has a site where you can donate money to get Natalie's bakery back up.  Click here to help out:
Hello, I'm Natalie Dubose of Ferguson, Missouri. I'm a small business owner with a cake shop and a bakery dream.
First, I would thank everyone for their warm wishes, empathy, and support during this crazy difficult time.
I would love to write more, and will try soon, but my business is so behind right now. 
My shop, which had it's grand opening this summer was vandalized in the riots. 
My main windows were smashed and bakery damaged. I'm beside myself, but with the holidays, can't stop working.
I'm very busy cleaning and trying to repair my business. I'm also trying to catchup on baking cakes for Thanksgiving!
I promise to update this later. I'm truly mixing batter right now. I began baking and selling cakes at local flea markets, slowly saving money to start my small business.
I LOVE TO BAKE !!!
It was my dream and I'm working hard to accomplish that dream.
The outpouring of support on Twitter, Facebook, and in the media has been amazing. I was in tears.
It was suggested that I start this account by a new friend and here it is. I do need help to rebuild and create a website, so any donations would be a huge assistance. 
I'm not sure where to find the money to repair my little bakery. But, even if you just stopped by to say hello. Thank You !!!!
I've never felt such love.
Thank You !!!
Natalie
