Potatoes Can Reduce Blood Pressure
Just a couple of servings of potato a day can reduce blood pressure in obese or overweight people with
high blood pressure, calling into question the lowly spud's current reputation as a fattening, unhealthy
food, according to new research presented at a conference in Denver, Colorado, USA, on Wednesday.
“The potato, more than perhaps any other vegetable, has an undeserved, bad reputation that has led
many health-conscious people to ban them from their diet, “said Dr Joe Vinson, a professor in the
Department of Chemistry at the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania, who led the research that was
presented at the 242nd National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS).
But before you go out and order French fries, the preferred way of eating this most consumed of all
vegetables in the US, consider this: the research was done with purple potatoes cooked in the
microwave oven, with no oil or fat whatsoever.

_____________I______________ so much more to Japanese cuisine than the sushi that’s so popular
today. The simple and delicate flavors of sauce, miso, sake and mirin (sweet rice wine) abound in styles
of cooking that range from yakitori (in which ingredients are grilled) to tempura (in which ingredients are
dipped in batter and lightly fried to a delicate crisp). Since flavor and aesthetics are of great importance
in Japanese cooking, well-prepared Japanese dishes are both ______________II______________and
______________III______________, a real treat for stomach and the eye.
