It only seems five minutes ago since I discovered the virtues of eating almonds. In fact was in September, just at the very time that the squirrels are stocking up on food for the winter. (see “Wonder Nut” by clicking on EMFV in the TAG CLOUD).
Now it appears I am not being NUTTY enough. Research by Hua Zhong University in China and the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston suggests that eating more cashews, peanuts and Brazil nuts can reduce your risk of heart disease by nearly a third. Strange they didn’t mention almonds, but perhaps they don’t grow almonds in China or America. Mind you, eating all those nuts might have you jumping around in trees and burying food in the garden.
Still Christmas is just around the corner and that is when we all start to stock up on nuts. So we should all be a lot healthier soon. I wonder what the researchers have to say about mince pies and Christmas pudding ?
