...according to the FDA they are! What the hell are they up to when a crisp (potato chip in the US) maker can put 'heart healthy' on their packaging , but not a walnut grower?
There are dozens of studies showing that walnuts are actually heart healthy & the omega-3 found in them does actually affect cancer rates. It's as near to proven as modern science can achieve! So why oh why are they mucking people about making statements like walnuts are drugs - do I have to do find myself a 'dealer' down a shady alley to get my walnut 'fix', it's madness!
Here's the FDA letter
I might go to my doctor later & see if I can a prescription of walnuts
