Using pecans in the fight against LDL cholesterol

New research out of the Journal of the American Dietetic Association suggests that although pecans are high in fat, they may actually lower “bad” LDL cholesterol. Dr. Wanda Morgan and fellow researchers at New Mexico State University studied the effect of adding pecans to the diet by observing the diets of individuals with normal cholesterol. Those in the pecan group ate sixty-eight grams of pecans each day, while those in the control group continued their normal diet and avoided nuts.

Those in the control group experienced no change in their LDL cholesterol levels, but those who added pecans to their diets experienced an average ten percent drop in their LDL cholesterol.
