LOS ANGELES

Munching on a handful of raisins three times a day helped people significantly lower their /*blood pressure*/ as did consuming soy on a daily basis.

People who ate raisins saw the top number of their blood pressure drop by 7 percent. Those who had soy lowered their blood pressure by about 5 points.

The effect was especially strong among African Americans.
