Do you think that Superfoods are the Ultimate Solution to our Health Problems?

What if there is an ultimate solution to one’s health? Something that has good effects on your body, will effectively reduce the risk of certain illnesses such as cancer and heart diseases, with no harmful side effects? A food that effectively lowers cholesterol and obesity risk. Believe it or not, the so-called superfoods may just be the solution to health problems that everyone is waiting for.
Superfoods are a special category of foods found in nature. By definition they are calorie sparse and nutrient dense meaning they pack a lot of punch for their weight as far as goodness goes. They are superior sources of anti-oxidants and essential nutrients - nutrients we need but cannot make ourselves.
so what do you think?

    It can only be "found in nature"
    without processing or cooking.

    Human ultra-high accuracy requires so.

    As long as you eat a balanced diet of organically-produced food, and avoid everything even remotely connected to Monsanto, you will be just fine.

    May 8 2014: can you name some superfoods?

    For about five years I have been living on milk. Every day I drink close to two gallons of some kind of milk (skim, 1%, 2%, or whole), plus a little cream here and there, and hardly eat or drink anything else. It has been good for my health, I have less pain, and my weight is very healthy, about 165 pounds at six feet, one inch height.

    May 8 2014: I’m a firm believer in that anyone needs to create their own customized diet, based on their own health needs and taste. And that the so-called super foods should be just part of your diet “IF” our health needs call for it.

    There is no one size fits all diet, age gender, health issues, ancestry, environment and more changes our health needs. For some Raisins would be a super food, but not for me because of their high inflammation facture. With the high zinc content of wild rice for some that lives far from a coastline it may help their low zinc levels, but for someone that lives on a coastline they could get zinc toxicity.

    I think you will enjoy this semi related TED talk, although not the focus of the talk I feel it shows how getting healthy soil is important to have to get healthy plants. And that health plant equal healthy animals, including humans.
