Walnuts - A Super Food!



Walnuts can prevent breast cancer...wow, that is amazing!  Here is the interesting article.


"Studies have clearly shown, however, that multiple ingredients in walnuts reduce the risk of cancer or slow its growth.
Using genetic analysis, the Marshall study found that the walnut-containing diet changed the activity of multiple genes that are relevant to breast cancer in both mice and humans. Other testing showed that increases in omega 3 fatty acids did not fully account for the anti-cancer effect, and found that tumor growth decreased when dietary vitamin E increased."

It also helps in the case of prostate cancer.

They sure are! I love most nuts and I don't actually have problems with portion control like some folks. :)

Our family love nuts. We eat it raw add it to salads as well as to some of my cooked dishes.

These are one of the nuts my doctor told me to eat, so I did get a big back of them last visit to the grocery store. Great information links here-thanks for sharing Jennifer!

That is interesting, Tina. Your doctor obviously knows about the benefits.
