 A friend recently gave me this and I thought I'd pass it along...

	Japanese mushrooms:
	Shitake contains polysaccharides which can lower 
cholesterol. Eating 3 oz. of fresh shitake daily lowers blood cholesterol by 
some 7%.
	Maitake lowers blood pressure and reduces tumors.

 Both fresh garlic and olive oil thin blood/frequent clotting and raise HDLs.
