Walnuts and health

walnutsforpostNuts make the news so frequently these days. I find articles more often in the science section than I do in the food section of the newspaper. Today’s brief article in the New York Times says that walnuts may curb diabetes in women. Eight ounces a month will reduce risk by 24 percent. Different nuts have countless benefits, but this seems an easy, delicious and positive addition to a well-rounded diet. The reason why they are so helpful? Their unique benefits have not been quantified yet, but the national institutes of Heath are on the case.
