Walnuts and Cholesterol

 

Can walnuts help fight high cholesterol? At least one study suggests so.

In the "Effects of Walnuts on Serum Lipid Levels and Blood Pressure in Normal Men," published in the New England Journal of Medicine in March 1993, researchers found that men placed on a diet which called for 20% of their weekly calories to come from walnuts, had reductions in 12.4% in total cholesterol and 16.3% in LDL or "bad" cholesterol, and only 4.9 percent in HDL ("good") cholesterol. The ratio of "bad" to "good" cholesterol was also lowered by the walnut diet.
