Nut Studies Are a Hoax (Part 2 of Nuts)

Have you ever heard that "nuts will make you live longer?"

Or that "nuts prevent heart attacks?"

Both of these statements - and many other claims about nuts - are based on very weak or non-existent evidence.

They come from researchers who've received a whole lot of money from the nut industry.

Today we bring you Part 2 in our multi-part video series on nuts. And this time, we name names of the researchers receiving millions from the nut industry to come up with dodgy studies. It's all about making highly questionable marketing claims.

We break it all down in this one-hour video.

And just for the record - I'm NOT anti-nut. I love nuts! But I AM anti-BS. I believe in people making informed decisions about their diet and health, which is why we're bringing you this series.

Engine 2 Diet Will Save Your Life - Rip Esselstyn

Former triathlete Rip Esselstyn went to work at the Engine 2 fire station - and found a coworker with very high cholesterol. This led to a bet: if Rip's colleague would just eat what Rip told him to eat, he could cut his cholesterol in half in just 28 days.

The challenge was accepted, and this is how the lowfat plant-strong Engine 2 Diet was born!

This is Rip's full talk from our 2009 Healthy Lifestyle Expo.
