Nuts Will Break Your Heart
AVOID NUTS TO FIGHT HEART DISEASE - NEW RESEARCH
The Pulse Wave Velocity test reveals the elasticity of your arteries. Arterial elasticity is strongly associated with risk for heart disease, stroke, and dementia.
The nut industry has paid for many studies to see whether nuts improve arterial elasticity. Their results are very mixed, with most studies showing no effect.
But these were studies of people eating unhealthy Standard American or Mediterranean Diets. What happens when someone following a healthy plant based diet tests nuts with this modality?
Today we bring you the results of a fascinating case study - a longtime healthy vegan following Dr. Esselstyn's diet who used the Pulse Wave Velocity analysis - and found consuming 2 ounces of nuts decreased his arterial elasticity by 20 to 30%, in the hours after the meal.
If you're concerned about heart disease, these results confirm the advice of Drs. Ornish and Esselstyn to tightly restrict nut intake, along with other fats. Dr. Esselstyn appears in today's video discussing this test.

Is Dr. Fuhrman Right About Nuts?
We sometimes hear that eating nuts extends life, that they prevent heart disease - and that it's "dangerous" to avoid eating them.
What evidence exists to support these ideas?
Today we examine a recent article written by Dr. Joel Fuhrman called "The Attack Against Nuts and Seeds."
We'll look at the data Dr. Fuhrman cites to see what it says, and - more importantly - what it doesn't say. This is part of my ongoing series about nuts and commercial research.
