1. Read a news story by San Francisco CBS 5 Dr. Kim Mulvihill.

In North Beach in San Francisco, where some pretty super food gets served every night.

“Absolutely very super food! “ “I really like the taste” are comments by two diners.

But we're not just talking about taste. Research now shows some foods, including tomatoes, onions, garlic, and olive oil – are among the superfoods. Superfoods are packed with powerful chemicals that may offer your body great protection against chronic disease –

“Including cancer, obesity, and heart disease. Vibrantly coloured red yellow orange and green all giving you different types of phytochemicals!”

Natalie Ledesma is a registered dietician at U.C.S.F. She says compounds found in superfoods – called phytochemicals – can reduce the risk of cancer, boost the immune system, and even protect the heart. She showed us what everyone should try to eat each week for optimal health.

On her shopping list? Herbs!

“Dark green ones (herbs), like rosemary and thyme. And any intensely coloured spice, like turmeric or red pepper. Both of those have anti-inflammatory properties.”

Turmeric may reduce the risk of leukemia, skin, and liver cancers. Hot peppers may reduce the risk of colon, stomach, and rectal cancers. Also on the list: green veggies, but not just any green veggies.

"Brussel sprouts are part of the cruciferous vegetable family that has significant anti-cancer properties," said Ledesma. "That family also has a very favourable effect on hormone metabolism."

Other cruciferous veggies include cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower. And don't forget the tomato.

"It is probably the best source of lycopene, which is one of the phytochemicals that has shown significant anticancer properties, especially with prostate and potentially lung and breast cancer as well," said Ledesma.

As for fruit, citrus contains Vitamin C, limonoids, and phenols, which inactivate cancer cells and strengthen the immune system. Cantaloupes, mangos, and carrots contain cancer-fighting carotenoids. And berries are bursting with flavonoids and ellagic acid – antioxidants that protect against cancer, ulcers, and viruses. Natalie recommends organic.

"Organic fruits and veggies have shown not only to have lower pesticide toxicities and lower pesticide levels, but also now have been shown to have higher phytochemical content," she said.

Don't forget the fatty fish or flaxseed – both are excellent sources of Omega Three fatty acids that inhibit the growth of cancer cells and boost the immune system, olive oil, which may reduce breast, prostate, or colon cancer, and soy.

"Soy has protective effects for heart disease as well as osteoporosis, potentially," Ledesma said.

And finally onions, garlic, and shallots. They may protect the heart, fight cancer, and help with asthma.

1. Read the text. Six sentences or parts of sentences have been removed.
Microwaving is a method of cooking where food is bombarded by microwaves, usually within an appliance called a microwave oven which excite the water, fat and sugar molecules, thereby heating (cooking) both the outside and center of the food at the same time. 1. _____________________________________________________. (A common myth is that a microwave oven cooks from the center of the food outward. This appears to happen because heat generated at the surface escapes more readily from the surface of the food into the surrounding air.) One advantage of microwaving is that small amounts of food can be heated very quickly, making it useful for reheating leftovers.

The disadvantage is that food which is microwaved does not undergo some of the chemical reactions, such as browning, which makes the food visually attractive. Primitive microwave ovens often do not cook evenly, leading to a concern that bacteria easily killed by more traditional cooking methods may survive the quick cooking time in "cold spots", though the food item as a whole is cooked to a safe average temperature.

2. _____________________________________________________. Some high-end microwave ovens are combined with a convection oven which basically cook the food using microwave and hot air simultaneously to achieve both the fast cooking time and browning effect.

3. ______________________________________________________________. However microwave ovens are used in some fast food chains and special microwave bags are available for cooking fowl or large joints of meat.

Professional chefs generally recommend using microwaves for a limited set of tasks, including: melting fats (such as butter) and chocolate, cooking grains like oatmeal and grits, cooking rice, thawing frozen meats and vegetables before cooking by other methods and quickly reheating already-cooked foods.

Using a microwave to boil water is potentially dangerous, due to superheating. In a microwave, water can be raised quickly to a temperature above the boiling point before major bubbles form, especially if it is purified and in a very clean glass vessel. 4. ____________________________________________________________. This effect is rare, even for scientists who try to deliberately recreate it, and any seed whatsoever for boiling is likely to prevent the problem. Boiling water with, for instance, a teabag already in it will prevent any dangers by providing a seed, as will using a mug that is not perfectly clean.

The risk greatly increases when water has already been boiled once in the same container. This situation can occur if the user of the oven boiled the water once, forgot about it, then came back later to boil it again. The first time the water boils, the seed bubbles (microscopic bubbles of air around which larger steam bubbles grow) are used up and largely eliminated from the water as it cools down. When the water is heated again, the lack of seed bubbles causes superheating, and a risk of a steam explosion when the water's surface is disturbed.

Placing something in the water before heating can mostly alleviate this risk. If you are planning to mix something with the water, say tea or hot chocolate, adding it before heating will insure that the water boils. Otherwise, placing a wood object, for instance a chopstick, in the water before heating will also work.

Care should be taken when removing heated water from a microwave. Make sure that the hands are protected from possible liquid boil-over, place the container on a level, heat-proof surface and stir liquid with a warm spoon. Also, never add powdered substances (such as instant coffee or cocoa mix) to the container taken from the microwave, due to the addition of all those seed bubbles and the potential for violent, spontaneous boiling. 5. _______________________________________.

Metal objects, such as metal utensils, in a microwave oven can lead to dangerous situations. Metals do not absorb microwaves effectively. Instead, metals reflect microwaves, thereby preventing the latter from reaching the food.

6. __________________________________________________________________. Thin metal layers, such as metal foil and mugs with metal trim can melt or burn due to the strong electrical currents that are generated in metal objects. However, small solid metal objects, such as spoons, in combination with a large amount of absorbing food or liquid, normally do not lead to problems.
2. Choose from the sentences A – G the one which fits each gap (1 – 6). Remember, there is one extra sentence you do not need to use.

A. Using a microwave for cooking a large food mass is difficult due to limited penetration of microwaves.

B. This can be overcome by leaving the food to stand for a few minutes when cooking is completed.

C. It is advised that the water should be poured slowly into another container that already contains the powder.

D. In this way, buying a microwave oven with a turntable ensure the food is cooked throughout.

E. Conversely the microwaves do not heat glass, ceramic and plastic containers.

F. If the microwaves are not absorbed inside the oven, the oven can be damaged by electrical arcs and overheating of the microwave source.

G. When water in that state is disturbed, it can suddenly and unexpectedly boil violently.
