I like and eat every one of those items mentioned. Does that mean I am super healthy?

^ You'll be better off than drinking that diet soda. :p

Smoking, air pollution, stress, bad beliefs are all going to figure in the mix.

My wife makes an awesome lentil stew. I love lentils! I love all the things on the list, only I can't eat almonds because I'm allergic to them. Cabbage also, I grew to really love when I lived in Bulgaria. I still use it here in every salad I make.

Every single one is in our kitchen & pantry, and they get used A LOT.

12 oz of tea? I probably drink 5 times that much iced tea a day. Love it.

Tuna is also overfished and getting dangerously low in numbers. I don't eat that anymore.

Too much green tea can cause liver or kidney damage, but I only drink 2 cups of that a day. The rest is black iced tea, and it's antioxident level is only a problem if you're anemic and I'm not. Caffeine level is low in either vs pop or coffee, and my BP is unaffected so....

Anyone notice that tuna is 'low' in mercury ??? :s Any mercury is bad.

I kind of guessed this. Why I never eat any kale ...

Mercury isn't mercury, and then you pretty much can't eat fish at all if you believe that. meanwhile people eat fish with both low and "high" amount of mercury daily and live very long and healthy lives.

I believe that only applies to one type of rare tuna, the blue fin or whatever.

Kale (a headless cabbage) tastes best, and is sweeter, once it's exposed to a frost or frozen then thawed. Cut and dehydrated it makes a decent alternative to potato chips.

No prob. My family is largely Swedish and curly kale is used in a lot of our traditional dishes, especially with ham or in ham based soups. US country cooks often sautee kale & other greens (collard etc.) in a bit of ham or bacon fat before adding water & covering to braise them.
