Got this E-mail from a patient, and it is worth forwarding!

Again and again -traditional superb- good food is proven to be healthy by modern science when for so many years patients had been misled by forbidding them to consume a lot of healthy substances for whatever reasons. We all know the story about eggs!! Enjoy eating the 7 minim! [The fruits mentioned in the Tora for which Israel is praised] The nice thing here is that the Professor does not have [or can’t have] a patent on dates and is not selling them in some form of capsules……….

What are the 7 crops of Israel? [Internet]

  • Seven Species. The Seven Species (Hebrew: שבעת המינים‎, Shiv’at HaMinim) are seven agricultural products – two grains and five fruits – which are listed in the Hebrew Bible as being special products of the Land of Israel. The seven species listed are wheat, barley, grape, fig, pomegranates, olive (oil), and date (honey) (Deuteronomy 8:8).
