Recent research is saying that increasing your intake of copper may help prevent heart disease. However if you take copper, I just discovered that you need to control your intake of fats because the excessive consumption of two together have been associated with mental decline. That’s actually good news, because I had thought that copper generally was associated with mental decline, and now that doesn't seem to be the case. Copper is apparently found in shellfish, navy beans, peas, walnuts, whole wheat, tofu, avocado, chili, and chocolate, some of which I eat in abundance – walnuts, whole wheat, chocolate without the fat, etc. And I also follow a low-fat diet, which, according to some of this research, is probably a good idea.
