DASH for a healthy diet

I found this great site called Health and Age for older adults that included this article saying that you need to do more than avoid salt to avoid hypertension and other age-related conditions. Nutrition plans like the DASH diet are low in sodium and fat but are also high in potassium and calcium and other nutrients deliver the health benefits older adults need. This means lots of low-fat dairy foods and a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. So get thee to the farmer's market and stock up, you'll feel better for it.
