    Default Walnuts Lower High Blood Pressure

    Eat walnuts if you have high blood pressure (hypertension). They contain compounds that can lower a blood pressure reading and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. The nuts are a healthy saturated fat that should be part of the daily diet of anyone who is already more likely to suffer from heart disease, such as an obese person.

    Julieanne you recently raised an excellent question that will forever stick with me. "Who pays for these studies?" In this case, researchers at Penn State University conducted the study that concluded walnuts can lower high blood pressure. However, the study was funded by the California Walnut Commission. Need I say more?

    Your research abilities are enviable Mr Wiz - your memory is not too bad either! Thanks for that.

    Now you all make me wonder what kind of study could possibly result in the conclusion that walnuts, more than any other foods (or perhaps any other nuts), can demonstrably lower blood pressure to a degree that is clinically significant?

    Dr. Marion Nestle (no relation to the brand), a nutrition professor at New York University, wrote a book recently entitled Unsavory Truth: How Food Companies Skew the Science of What We Eat. She's been investigating industry-sponsored nutrition studies for decades. What's great about this book is she provides clues consumers can use to help determine whether the study should be trusted, beginning with (as Julieanne suggested) determining who paid for the study.
