A while back, I read this in Ladies’ Home Journal while waiting to see my medical oncologist:

Oregano, rosemary, thyme, bay leaves, basil, anise, garlic and pepper not only add Mediterranean flavor to your cooking, they also contain healthy antiocidants.

“Just half a teaspoon of dried oregano has as much antiocidants as 3 cups of spinach,” says dietician Wendy Basilian, Dr.P.H.,R.D.

The magazine goes on to recommend “using these herbs and spices liberally, to taste, at every meal.”

Not convinced?  Read a an article about oregano I ran last April here on HWC:

Oregano is a powerful antioxidant – and may also kill cancer cells

I years before that,  I wrote this about this amazing and under-appreciated herb:

“The oregano thing really surprised me! I already pile it on my pizza and spaghetti.  A little more can’t hurt!”

Still great advice!  Feel good and keep smiling!  Pat
