Another great new nut study….2.4 ounces a day of pistachios significantly reduced markers for lung cancer, and likely provides protection from other cancers as well. I mentioned earlier that nuts provided fatty acids that help balance hormones and support the liver. Actually, the brain, the thymus gland (which regulates immune response) and the liver are all fat-dependent, as are the reproductive organs. Three huge health issues in America are nervous disorders, from depression to ADD; immune disorders ranging from auto-immune issues to cancer; and hormone imbalances from PMS to infertility. We just all need to GO NUTS!
