This is a study by Harvard and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.  


Hope everyone had a safe and terrific Thanksgiving.

I ate some trail mix today and I feel wonderful. 

Maybe I did not read the very end of the article, but is there some benefit for me, now?

The good taste put a smile on my face.

The gist of the article is people that eat a handful of nuts a day have a 29% reduction in death from heart disease and 11% less chance of dying from Cancer.  Though, in your case, you might live forever.  :)

"For example, they found people who ate more nuts tended to be leaner, to eat more fruits and vegetables, not smoke, be more physically active, and drink more alcohol."


I love the "drink more alcohol part"   Almost got to think it's a typo unless it is red wine at dinner that is being measured. Probably not a good idea for us H & N folks but a rather strange finding nonetheless. Bottoms up!

chopping up extra pecans on my Butter Pecan icecream counts as "a handful of nuts"....if so, then I've been following this religiously for the last 9 months Laughing.

Being I am a vegetarian and my main food is pecans I hope to live till 150. My wife makes all my food from Pecans or Cashews. I am not sure how she does it but when I could swallow it tasted better than any meat product. Now she makes it like hamburger patties so all I need to do it to put it in the blinder with a potato and a little gravy and away it goes down the old tube.


Sometimes I feel like a nut and sometimes I don’t
