Food for Thought What's Cooking at Dr. Fuhrman's?


Nuts and Seeds Are Excellent Foods!
Nuts are an excellent natural food. Countless studies have shown raw nuts and seeds not only lower cholesterol, but protect against common diseases of aging. Because they have hard shells and are picked off large trees with deep roots, nuts are relatively well protected from pesticides and environmental pollution. Nuts and seeds are a clean source of healthy fats, and are also a good source of protein. Dr. Fuhrman recommends raw almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, pecans, pistachios, macadamias, filberts, and walnuts; and sunflower, sesame, flax, and pumpkin seeds. They make a great snack for children too!

To learn more about the amazing benefits of nuts and seeds, read Dr. Fuhrman's Healthy Times Newsletter Issue No. 11.

Clearing the Haze

Celebrity doctor Joseph Mercola,D.O. is a prolific writer with a large following. Recently, Dr. Fuhrman was asked on DiseaseProof.com blog to assess some of Dr. Mercola's more outlandish claims.

Here's what Dr. Fuhrman had to say about the 'miraculous' properties of coconut oil: 'I(Dr. Fuhrman) just went to www.nal.usda.gov our government's web analysis tool and analyzed plain coconut oil for you guys and added up the numbers including the fractions so it would be exact. 100 grams of coconut oil contains 86.5 grams of saturated fat. It contains 14.1 grams of 6-10 chain (medium chain) saturated fats and 5.8 grams of monounsaturated fat. So it is most accurate to call it (coconut oil) about 14% of those less harmfull ('miraculous') MCT saturated fats (a relatively small amount). . . [additionally] the extracted oil contains less than one tenth of nature's valuable nutrients than the same amount of calories obtained from the whole food (coconut).'
