Dish Up Some Pecan Pie

"Who doesn't relish a slice of pecan pie for Thanksgiving
dessert? New research from Loma Linda University (LLU)
demonstrates that naturally occurring antioxidants in
pecans may help contribute to heart health and disease
prevention. Earlier LLU research showed that a pecan-
enriched diet lowered levels of LDL (bad cholesterol)
by 16.5 percent. Both studies were published in the
Journal of Nutrition."
