Potassium...A Miracle Mineral?

Recent studies have revealed that increasing one's daily intake of potassium has had very positive results in lowering high blood pressure­ AS WELL AS lowering cholesterol. We're talking about potassium-rich foods, not potassium supplements. Most readily available are baked potatoes (watch the stuff you put in them!) broccoli, bananas, oranges, tomatoes, dried apricots, cantaloupes, prunes and winter squash, to name a few.
