Research has found genetic mutations leading to colorectal cancer in Jewish people of Ashkenazi descent. In fact, Ashkenazi Jews are two-to-three times more likely to develop colorectal cancer than are members of the general population. This is part of the reason why colorectal cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in Israel.

According to Ralph W. Moss, Ph.D, Mexican dry bean consumption (much of which is of antioxidant-rich black beans) is 33 pounds per year, more than five times the US total. Perhaps not coincidentally, Mexico has just 30 percent of the US colon cancer mortality rate. This fact brought me to the idea to create my own "black-bean" brownie recipe. Initially I found similar recipe on "A Dietician's Cancer Story". Later I reworked the recipe and used for Passover.

Celebrating Holidays, we have to think about QUALITY of OUR LIFE!

Bean, appetit!
