A study done in California known as the Adventist Health Study, analyzed the dietary habits of more than 25,000 Seventh-day Aventist, Christians universally recognized for their healthy lifestyle. The results showed that heart attack risk among Adventists is considerably lower than that of the general population. Those that ate walnuts five or more times a week, had an even lower risk of heart attack, approximately half of the Adventists in the study ate walnuts at least once a week.
Walnuts are a rich source of essential fatty acids, B6 and trace elements such as copper, zinc, and manganese.
