I can't stand walnuts and I can't believe people actually eat them. Reply Jeanette Foresta News says: May 9, 2014 at 1:13 pm Thank you Dr. Greger. As always I will be sharing this report. I put them in my juicer. First I soak them in non tap water before I juice them. It makes them soft. Then I put them in along with crushed flax seeds which is Omega 3. I've been juicing all my life on and off. I've been using the Montel Williams emulsifier for four years but, I'm going to get the new Ninja so I won't have to pour my juice into a container to take it out with me. Since juicing again, I not only lost weight but, got rid of all my aches and pains. Reply Wyatt Herbivore says: May 9, 2014 at 2:19 pm Since I've become vegan, I have developed nut allergies. Have no idea why. My throat starts to itch within minutes of eating walnuts, pistachios, almonds and peanuts. The first 40 years of my life I ate nuts all the time! So disappointing… At least I'm not allergic to fruits and vegetables!! 👍👍 Reply chiyerano says: May 9, 2014 at 4:08 pm Well, I'll just mix my cashews with walnuts. Good to know about nuts. Reply Justgivemethetruth says: May 9, 2014 at 6:45 pm How many walnuts on average in an ounce? Reply Betsy Cosmos says: May 10, 2014 at 8:22 pm It's always a great day when you discover something yummy is also healthy! Reply Sonoma Rising says: May 11, 2014 at 5:15 pm I note that Effects of Walnuts on Endothelial Function in Overweight Adults with Visceral Obesity: A Randomized, Controlled, Crossover Trial was funded by the California Walnut Commission. Didn't check the other studies cited by Dr. Greger. When the funding source has a desired outcome in mind, to me that taints the study. And I say this as a big fan of Dr. Greger and a heart disease patient always on the lookout for dietary methods (like a whole foods plant-based, oil-free diet) for halting or reversing my disease.

Reply rainbowsalads says: July 24, 2014 at 7:25 am That opening sentence is totally deceiving and misleading. Reply Louisea says: March 13, 2015 at 8:33 pm Great info. Reply Alan Heath says: September 2, 2015 at 7:14 am As I get older my fruit and nut allergies get less. Now I can eat all sorts of nuts I could not as a child, although hazlenuts are still out and it takes me ages to eat one walnut. However I manage large quantities of cashews and pistachios!

Reply lexchance com says: January 11, 2017 at 8:04 pm I know now why I love walnuts the most out of the nuts tx Doctor Greger!:) Reply lexchance com says: January 11, 2017 at 8:05 pm I love that you donate all your profits…so cool…I wish every 'Doctor" was like Dr. Greger!!!! imagine the world Reply Anders says: June 3, 2017 at 9:37 pm Nuts nuts nuts, I love them chopped up in with my chopped up fruits Reply Aemilius says: December 27, 2017 at 5:37 pm I just ate 28 in one night am I ok? Reply jjnewbold says: January 31, 2018 at 4:42 pm When it comes to walnuts, how much is optimum? Handful a day? Reply Behind the Chair with Darlene Dagostino says: February 15, 2018 at 2:48 pm Which walnuts are the best? Reply Ricki Lagozzino says: April 6, 2018 at 6:26 pm Recently started on a whole food/plant based diet. Because I just watched a video on how people are fooled in to believing that walnuts are healthy, I decided to get on here, and see what Dr. Greger says. I mean, I am following his lead, and using his cookbook. While I was watching this video, and listening to him explain the studies, I saw FMD mentioned. Whoa! I have FMD!! I have had brain surgery to treat one of my aneurysms. The others are inoperable. I kept pausing this video so I could try and read about FMD. Which by the way is not rare. Doctors simply are not trained, and so it is often misdiagnosed for years. There it is. It appears this may be my treatment. Thank you Dr. Greger. I really do not want another brain surgery. You are a rock star! Reply Arctic says: April 12, 2018 at 9:07 am Food is medicine Reply Emi Ayau says: June 15, 2018 at 10:25 pm Does it matter if the nuts are raw or cooked? Reply frida hansson says: July 15, 2018 at 4:26 pm Can too much fat from nuts clog arteries? I know that too much calories from anything will be stored as fat, but my question is about the healthy fats from nuts, seeds and avocadoes: if consumed in large quanities will the fat be stored inside adipocytes or as arteriosclerosis? if anybody has an answer i would greatly appreciate it Reply Mari Chen says: September 5, 2018 at 7:28 am do we need to soak the nuts to get the benefits ? Reply Julie Meibaum says: September 11, 2018 at 1:18 am Dr Greyer, you said only 1 serving per week, but the graph says "more than 3 per week". Reply Linda McNeil says: September 21, 2018 at 1:56 am Wait, olive oil reduces artery function? Oh dear, that is my main oil. I need to find walnuts and start adding them in. Reply profd65 says: October 11, 2018 at 5:40 am OK, I don't get it. Why the hell is Esselstyn so militantly against nuts then, at least for persons already having heart disease? Reply MMM mm says: December 4, 2018 at 6:14 am They ate 56 grams of walnuts a day? wonder how many walnuts make 56 grams Reply Blu Crystl says: December 27, 2018 at 12:50 pm You Rock Doc! 🙂 Reply HolyWarriorJoy says: February 4, 2019 at 2:29 pm Dr. Greger is promoting olive oil, but it is proven in the hypercholesterolemic group study above that olive oil worsens endothelial cell function? Reply Elliot Classen says: March 3, 2019 at 3:19 am What about walnuts and pistachios andtestosterone?
