Guacamole: friend or foe?

Comenta

We know nuts are the healthiest source of fat—cutting our risk of dying from a heart attack in half. But what about avocados? Friend or foe? Is guacamole bad for you? Neither good nor bad? Or, pass the guacamole?

The chips we may eat them with are bad, but avocados are good for us. Help prevent cancer, may help arthritis, boost our immune system, and lower our cholesterol. We used to think oranges were the best fruit source of cholesterol-lowering phytosterols. That is, until avocados were tested.

To see any graphs, charts, graphics, images, and quotes to which Dr. Greger may be referring, watch the above video. This is just an approximation of the audio contributed by veganmontreal.
