The avocado is shrouded in myths, such as it’s fattening, unhealthy and highly caloric. Fortunately, research has debunked the myths surrounding this fantastic fruit.
Dr. Smith has gathered information demonstrating how a little avocado can go a long way in improving health and reducing risks for chronic disease such as:
- Cut cancer risk
- Enhance vitamin intake
- Cut cholesterol
- Diminish diabetes
- Winning weight loss
Balance is key. While it’s true that avocados may promote optimal health, a healthy diet also consists of a balance of low fat sources of protein, fruits and vegetables and whole-grains. So don’t overdo it with avocados — just look for creative ways to incorporate a modest amount into a nutritious diet.
