DLM: Nuts (2001)
The ADA 2001 Hyperlipidemia MNT Evidence-based guide for practice was originally published in a compact disk (CD) format. This 2001 project was published to the online Evidence Analysis Library for the benefit of ADA members, even though it does not follow the current online format and may be missing some of the components (all of the components of current evidence analysis include: question, conclusion, grade, search plan and results, evidence summary, overview table, worksheets, and quality check lists.)
Nuts and Hyperlipidemia (2001)
Consumption of 1 ounce of nuts ~5 times per week decreases total and LDL-cholesterol ~10% to 15% and decreases the risk of CHD by ~30% to 50%.
