10 Best Foods You're Not Eating

Dr. Jonny Bowden, nutritionist and author of "The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth," has created a list of 10 easily accessible healthy foods that people should be eating — but aren't.

» Beets: Think of beets as red spinach, because they are a rich source of folate as well as natural red pigments that may be cancer fighters. How to eat: Fresh, raw and grated to make a salad. Heating decreases the antioxidant power.

» Cabbage: Loaded with nutrients like sulforaphane, a chemical said to boost cancer-fighting enzymes. How to eat: Asian-style slaw or as a crunchy topping on burgers and sandwiches.

» Swiss chard: A leafy green vegetable packed with carotenoids that protect aging eyes. How to eat it: Chop and saute in olive oil.

» Cinnamon: May help control blood sugar and cholesterol. How to eat it: Sprinkle on coffee or oatmeal.

» Pomegranate Juice: Appears to lower blood pressure and loaded with antioxidants. How to eat: Just drink it.

» Dried plums: Okay, so they are really prunes, but they are packed with antioxidants. How to eat: Wrapped in prosciutto and baked.

» Pumpkin Seeds: The most nutritious part of the pumpkin and packed with magnesium; high levels of the mineral are associated with lower risk for early death. How to eat: Roasted as a snack, or sprinkled on salad.

» Turmeric: it may have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. How to eat: Mix with scrambled eggs or in any vegetable dish.

» Frozen blueberries: Even though freezing can degrade some of the nutrients in fruits and vegetables, frozen blueberries are available year-round and don't spoil; associated with better memory in animal studies. How to eat: Blended with yogurt or chocolate soy milk and sprinkled with crushed almonds.

» Canned pumpkin: A low-calorie vegetable that is high in fiber and immune-stimulating vitamin A; fills you up on very few calories. How to eat: Mix with a little butter, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Dr. Sadaty's practice is dedicated to continually improving and providing state of the art comprehensive medical and preventive care for women's health.

Pregnancy Care

Prenatal Care:

The Long Island New York office offers a comprehensive team approach to our obstetrical patients - our obstetricians, high-risk specialist, trained labor and delivery nurses and on-site radiologist work together to assure our obstetrical patients receive round the clock, quality care.

We perform all obstetrical ultrasound and prenatal care services in our office as well as all ultrasound-related procedures including:

Well Woman Care:

We are proud to offer our patients health care screening following the American Cancer Society Guidelines for well-woman health care surveillance:


Urodynamics and Evaluation of Female Urinary Stress Incontinence:

Urinary incontinence is the accidental release of urine. This leakage often occurs when you cough, laugh, sneeze, or have sudden urges to go to the bathroom and can't get there in time. Incontinence is not a disease but a symptom of a problem and is very common, especially among women. Typically, urinary incontinence does not cause major health problems, but it can be embarrassing and can affect a woman's self-esteem and confidence.

Our office is fully equipped to perform complex Urodynamic Testing, using the The Lumax Pro Cystometry System I - a state-of-the-art, incontinence diagnostic system that more accurately diagnoses the various cause of female urinary incontinence. Urodynamic testing provides a more advanced way to check bladder function and to determine if incontinence symptoms are due to overactive bladder, pelvic floor relaxation, disorders of the urethra, or a combination of many factors.

Radiologic Services:

Our practice is proud to have Dr. Beth Gross, a radiologist who specializes in ultrasound evaluation for obstetrics and gynecology. She has written several chapters for a variety of prominent ultrasound textbooks, and is an associate professor at North Shore University hospital and New York University Departments of radiology.

Obstetrical ultrasounds performed in pregnancies include early first trimester screening (known as the ultrascreen), ultrasound-guided amniocentesis, comprehensive level II anatomy screens, cervical length screening for preterm labor prevention, biophysical profiles and fetal growth evaluations in the third trimester, and multifetal pregnancy evaluation. We also offer state of the art 3-D ultrasound in our facility, available to our obstetrical and gynecologic practice.

Gynecologic ultrasound includes ovarian cancer screening assessment, pelvic and transvaginal ultrasound and sonohysterography for evaluation of uterine abnormalities.

We have on-site bone densitometry for early detection of osteopenia and osteoporosis and counseling available for patients regarding this important women's health care issue.

The Halo Breast Pap Test:

The HALO System is a simple, reliable method for NAF collection. NAF analysis is an objective assessment of a patient's breast health and can detect early warning signs of ductal cellular changes. Regular assessment and tracking of cellular changes in the milk ducts, where most breast cancer begins, enables clinicians and patients to take control of breast health. Consider the following facts:

Breast cancer also ranks a women's number one health concern today, as warranted by the following statistics: In the United States, the average woman has a 12.5 percent lifetime risk of developing invasive breast cancer.

Halo Breast Pap Test: Abnormal Cell Growth Detection
Until recently, the standard care for screening women to assess their breast health and risk of developing breast cancer was review of family history, physical breast exam, plus regular mammography for women over 40 or 50. However, clinical experience has shown that none of these methods is effective in identifying cancers at the cellular level. By the time the cancer is detected by either physical examination or mammography, the woman may have had the disease for six to ten years, with significant risk of serious consequences - including death. In addition, it should be noted that more than 70% of breast lumps are initially found through self-examination. Learn more about the HALO Breast Pap Test.


Comprehensive Genetics Counseling:

Pre-natal Genetics Counseling

Dr. Sadaty's office offers Pre-natal Genetics Counseling and formal genetic evaluation for couples with poor pregnancy history, recurrent miscarriages and couples who may be at risk for genetic diseases based on ethnicity and country of origin.

After an evaluation, recommendations for tests may include carrier screening for Cystic Fibrosis, Gaucher's Disease, Tay-Sach's, Canavan's, Familial Dysautonomia, Sickle Cell Disease, Thalassemias, Fanconi's anemia, Niemann-Pick (type A) disease, Bloom syndrome, HTLVIII, Mucolipidosis and Fragile X testing.

Patient's of Ashkenazi Jewish descent may be at risk for carrying genes that could lead to uncommon, yet severe, incurable neurodegenerative and other diseases in their newborns. There is currently genetic screening available for Tay-Sachs disease, Canavan disease, Familial Dysautonomia, Niemann-Pick disease, Fanconi's anemia, Bloom syndrome, Gaucher's disease, mucolipidosis type IV,and glycogen storage disease type 1.

Cystic fibrosis (a progressive, chronic lung disorder that leads to death in young adulthood) is found mostly in Caucasian populations, and Hemoglobin electrophoresis (to screen for blood disorders) is often recommended for individuals of Asian or Mediterranean descent.

Fragile X Syndrome is the most common cause of inherited mental retardation. Carrier screening for this disorder is available. The American College of Medical Genetics and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology established the most recent guidelines for Fragile X syndrome carrier which state that anyone with a family history of undiagnosed mental retardation should be considered for Fragile X syndrome carrier testing.

BRCA-1/2 Genetic Counselling

BRACAnalysis is a genetic test that requires only a blood sample to determine whether a patient has a BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutation, indicating a predisposition to hereditary breast and ovarian cancer (HBOC). Once genetic risk is identified, there are specific management strategies that can be employed for early detection, risk reduction and possible prevention of these cancers.

We offer a full evaluation for carrier screening that is appropriate for you with a detailed explanation of how carrier screening can affect your unborn child.
