Dr. Oz and TIME Magazine
In his Time Magazine cover story, “The Anti-Snob Diet,” Dr. Mehmet Oz made the nutritional case for canned foods saying that they are “everyday foods” and that we need to “reclaim them as stalwarts of a healthy diet.”
- He reminds us that “food isn’t about cachet. It’s about nourishment, pleasure and the profound well-being that comes from the way meals draw us together.”
- He cites the Tufts University Study that reminds us that when it comes to cost per serving, “again and again, canned foods came up the winner over their fresh counterparts.”
- Oz says that studies “indicate that carotenes, which can reduce cancer rates and eye problems, may be more available to the body following the routine heat treatment [of canning].”
