Why nuts don't make you fat [news]
The message that nuts are a healthy food that can help lower bad LDL cholesterol has been around for years – so why aren't we eating more of them? The surprise finding from a new nut industry report on Australia's nut eating habits is that most of us nibble them once a month or less, often on planes or at parties, with only two per cent of us eating them daily. What's holding us back is the F word: fat. We might know that the fat in nuts, like the fat in foods like olive oil and avocado, is healthy fat, but we're still keeping it at arms' length.
