I'm already eating lots of rice and soy...,
This review is from: Lower Your Blood Pressure in Eight Weeks: A Revolutionary Program for a Longer, Healthier Life (Paperback)Ever wonder what Asparagus, Avacados and Anger have to do with hypertension? Although some folks suggest you should not eat Avocados if you are on a low fat diet, perhaps you will reconsider after you read Steven and Jan Sinatra's book. And although asparagus are available seasonally, so you may want to eat as many of the fresh ones as you can and avoid the canned variety unless you wash the salt off. Frozen asparagus are okay but they lack the crunch of course. The Sinatras say your best bet is to freeze your own.
Anger is the killer. Try yoga, deep breathing exercises, aromatherapy, and pets to release anger. Bodywork including massage will lower your blood pressure if you get angry. Working out with weights or walking can be wonderful stress relievers.
Quercetin in tea and/or red wine may be better for you than taking medications with COX-2 inhibitors. The Sinatras include meal plans and recipes. I'm already eating lots of soy and rice, but the Sinatras offer many other good ideas. My philosopy is `Take what you need and leave the rest" and there is plenty I can take from this book.

Agreed on the soy, especially since most soy grown today is GM.

Stay away from the soy! Have you not heard about its relation with genetically modified foods?

Stay away from rice as well. Grains are starch, starch turns to sugar fast, it's asking for Diabetes.
