Prostates love walnuts

Recent study shows walnuts reduce cancer risk

Walnuts and walnut oil may greatly reduce the risk of prostate cancer in men, according to a recent UC Davis study published in the Journal of Medicinal Food. In previous tests, walnuts have proven to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, and the latest data show that’s not just due to a high omega-3 content as previously thought, but due to the makeup of the nut itself. In the study, different groups of mice were fed walnuts, walnut oil or a mixture of fats with the same omega-3 fatty acid content for 18 weeks, and only those that consumed the nuts or oil showed lower cholesterol levels and reduced growth in prostate cancer.
