Nuts and Health: What the Science Really Says
Few foods create as much controversy as nuts. We often hear that nuts are good sources of many nutrients including fiber, protein and healthy fats.
Nuts are also said to lower our risks for heat disease, diabetes, and stroke and even help to manage our weight. Is that all true, and, if so, how much is enough and how much is too much?
Nuts are, after all, high in fat, calories, and calorie density, which makes them especially easy to overeat on.
So, are nuts really good for us? Do they cause weight loss or weight gain? What does the science really say?
With so much conflicting information out there, it's no wonder that people are so confused and literally going nuts over nuts!
In this easy to understand and entertaining 70-minute talk, Jeff Novick will reveal what the sciences really says about nuts and health.
