Exploring G-BOMBS 6D Blog Series - by Melissa Cotton

Are there specific foods that boost immune function, prevent cancer from developing, and promote longevity? The answer to this question is YES!  Dr Fuhrman uses a simple, yet powerful acronym, G-BOMBS (Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries, and Seeds) to help us remember these six nutrient-dense foods.  Over the next few months, I will be sharing a series of blog posts, diving deep into the benefits of G-BOMBS.  Do other plant based doctors share Dr Fuhrman’s confidence in the scientific research about these specific foods?  Stay tuned to learn why incorporating these foods into your diet can be a game-changer for your health and longevity.
