August 4, 2011: 10:21 AM EST
Cardiovascular disease, weight and cancer are the top health concerns of Americans, according to research from the International Food Information Council, that also found that people look to food for its health advantages. Ninety percent of Americans can name at least one food and its associated benefit. Seventy-six percent say that functional foods can have a meaningful impact on their health, though they look mainly to fruits and vegetables, fish/fish oil, dairy, whole grains, and herbs and spices to help improve or maintain their health.
