Nuts and Seeds Are Excellent Foods!
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,

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).'
