Nuts May Help Lower Cholesterol Levels

The lipid-lowering effects of nuts were magnified among individuals with higher baseline LDL levels, those with a lower body mass index, and those consuming a Western diet high in total and saturated fat (versus a Mediterranean diet high in total fat but low in saturated fat).

"Greater cholesterol lowering effect is found when nuts replace saturated fat than when olive oil or carbohydrates are replaced," Sabaté and his colleagues wrote. "This finding has important clinical and public health applications."
