Editor's Note from Neda Smith: Since the 1970's there has been a lot of controversy about high cholesterol foods and their affects on the body. There is now evidence showing that Statin pills can cause cancer, especially skin cancer. Since Statins have been on the market there has also been a rise of skin cancer. Here is a short excerpt on the movie Statin Nation. It is definitely worth it.

Editor's Note: I wait for pomegranates ALL YEAR LONG. They are probably in my top three favorite foods of all time and this just looks like a wonderful recipe to add to my ever growing list of foods I try to serve at Thanksgiving to get my family converted to a healthier and cleaner way of eating. Butternut squash is full of beta-carotene and when roasted becomes very savory sweet. I believe that the pomegranates, which are rumored to be the HIGHEST levels of anti-oxidants of all fruits will pair vary nicely with the squash and crisp greens while protecting your heart and brain against disease and cancer. Also full of fiber and vitamin C this dish lends a helping hand to the digestive and immune systems as well.
