Handful of Walnuts is Enough to Boost Health
First I will include some of the health benefits which according to the FDA we are apparently not to discuss about walnuts and then I will include the link to the FDA letter recently sent to Diamond warning about sharing this information….
You don’t have to consume large amounts of walnuts in order to experience the health benefits of walnuts. According to Vinson, as little as seven walnuts is enough to experience the benefits. Walnuts are so rich in antioxidants that a small amount is more than enough; when compared to vitamin E for example, walnuts are 15 times more potent. Just a handful of walnuts per day will help reduce the chances of heart disease, and other cardiovascular-related issues.
“Walnuts rank above peanuts, almonds, pecans, pistachios and other nuts. A handful of walnuts contains almost twice as much antioxidants as an equivalent amount of any other commonly consumed nut. But unfortunately, people don’t eat a lot of them. This study suggests that consumers should eat more walnuts as part of a healthy diet,” Joe Vinson of the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania says.
According to an article published by David Katz MD and his research group in Diabetes Care back in 2010, walnuts have been shown to help improve the health of the blood vessels in adults with type 2 diabetes.
One study revealed that walnuts have potentially powerful breast cancer prevention properties. Researchers used mice specifically “created” to be at risk for breast cancer and fed one group of them a daily dose of walnuts, while the other didn’t receive any walnuts. When compared with those who didn’t get the nuts, the mice had a much lower risk of breast tumors, and when tumors were present, they were far smaller than in the control.
Just how many walnuts were required to reap this remarkable benefit? About the equivalent of 2 ounces in humans.
“It is clear that walnuts contribute to a healthy diet that can reduce breast cancer,” said lead researcher Elaine Hardman.
There is little coincidence that walnuts resemble tiny brains when they offer so many benefits for the mind. Some studies have linked them to a reduced risk of degenerative conditions like dementia and Alzheimer’s. One study found that rats fed walnuts for a 28-day period had learning and memory improvements when compared with other rats.
Excerpts from FDA Letter
Now because there is no way to just make this stuff up because it is so completely “out there” I am including direct links to this article so that you can get a glimpse here of how insane this is before you go into the actual article to read how far out the rest of the letter is!!!! Talk about INSANE!!! This takes the cake!
“The FDA’s language over walnuts resembles that of an out-of-control police state where tyranny supersedes rationality. Here is an excerpt from the FDA’s warning letter to Diamond Foods:
“Based on our review, we have concluded that your walnut products are in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act) and the applicable regulations in Title 21, Code of Federal Regulations (21 CFR).
“…Based on claims made on your firm’s website, we have determined that your walnut products are promoted for conditions that cause them to be drugs because these products are intended for use in the prevention, mitigation, and treatment of disease.”
