People should also avoid spicy dishes and should garnish them with coriander leaves, mint and lemon, adding that tomato, fresh beans, carrot and beetroot are also good, they said.
It was further suggested that high blood pressure, joint pain and diabetic
patients should be more careful in using meat in their diet as it increases cholesterol level.
