    • Researchers examined the relationship between avocado consumption and cardiovascular events.
    • They found that eating 2 or more servings of avocado per week is linked to 16% fewer cardiovascular events over a 30-year period. One serving is half an avocado, or 80 grams (g).
    • The researchers conclude that replacing certain fat-containing foods with avocado could lower cardiovascular disease risk.
    • They note however that replacing plant oils with avocado is linked to a 45% higher stroke risk.

    Nice to know if you can score an avocado that is 99¢ or less. In my area the prices vacillate from week to week, sometimes going as high as $1.39 per each! Not only has inflation nullified the tiny increase in my Social Security pension this year, but medication for my German Shepherd, which she can't live without, exceeds $160/month, so it can be a real balancing act to make ends meet.

    It's good to know that avocados are at the top of the EWG Clean 15 list, so one can save money buying them at the SM. https://www.ewg.org/foodnews/clean-fifteen.php

    I might add that even organic fruit and veggie's skins, such as the rough outer avocado skin, should always be washed before cutting,(or biting), into them, as there may be e-coli, salmonella, critter poops, etc. present. https://nutritiouslife.com/live-cons...ganic-produce/ ~~~ https://www.motherjones.com/food/201...ganic-produce/
