Luteolin: eat more of the flavonoid in fruit and vegetables

Research paper from BMC Gastroenterology

Popularisation in the tabloids (spotted while waiting for my car to be serviced this morning).

What I found interesting was the list of foods containing the cancer-slowing  flavonoid luteolin, which include

Thyme, oregano, rosemary, camomile tea, peppermint, olive oil, carrots and navel oranges.

Sounds like the typical Greek diet in most respects.

Another item that caught my eye at the garage, some research on the evolutionary differences between males and females regarding warfare!
