    Not even kidding, thanks for this chart 100%. Wish it had roasted and honey roasted on here too, just to compare.

    I like nuts better! And I don't mean crazy people, but I do mean the one's that cum in a sac.

    MuchoMasQueMusculo said I also like them because they're also good for the prostate.


    Taking seed for the prostate, eh? Figures.

    But honestly this chart is great! I'm not nearly the nut expert I though I was.

    ^ At first I didn't get this comment until I realized you didn't 'pluralize' the word seed. Then I figured it out. You need to stop watching all those Treasure Island Media bareback porn videos. icon_twisted.gif

    It's their high zinc content if I'm not mistaken. Zinc is good for our prostates.


    Technically "seed" would not need to be pluralized in either context. But as for your bareback porn implication, I am completely innocent. There's not a mischevious bone in my body! ;)

    All other comments aside I'm happy for you and your healthy prostate. To a long and happy future for you both!

    In the context of consuming them as a common occurance "seed" is correct. In the context of eating them currently, "seeds" is more appropriate. You were speaking generally and I thought I would follow suit. If you mean that you were sitting at this very moment with a bag full of pumpkin seed munching away, one could argue you were consuming "seeds" as you would be apportioning them by the handful. But in this context, it is because of your regular consumption of pumpkin seed that keeps your prostate pert and prosperous. ;)

    What's the source of this info? Could you cite it?

    Also, the spelling nazi in me has to point out that the correct spelling of 'macademia' is 'macadamia'. Obvious errors like that make the presentation less convincing.

    If you have a finite number of seeds then pluralization is appropriate. Ie. "I just ate three seeds."
    When it's a consistant occurance then seed is probably considered more proper. Ie. "I regularly partake of pumpkin seed for the benefit of the health of my prostate."

    And don't you worry. It's not like you're the only American to not completely grasp the English language.

    Well, then I should probably eat more pumpkin seed.

    Technically, peanuts aren't nuts. They're legumes.

    Chart's highest fiber looks screwy. Shows highest as 3.5 almond but it redded 2.9 pistachio.

    Happened upon this as I was munching on pistachio's fresh from Calif and a navel orange from South Africa (oranges were less expensive than the last batch from Calif)

    I usually have a bowl of walnuts and raisins around for munching and I've got some hazelnut in the house. Oh, wait, that's just Frangelico.

    Good info. Now google which ones are most inflammatory and most anti-inflammatory. icon_wink.gif

    For people who fight visceral fat (meso and endo morphs), that is the most important factor.

    "Almost all foods that we eat, after being digested, absorbed, and metabolised, release either an acid or an alkaline base (bicarbonate) into blood. Grains, fish, meat, poultry, shellfish, cheese, milk, and salt all produce acid. The mass consumption of these foods have caused our bodies to become overly acidic, which strips it of minerals. Over the long haul, those who do not balance their diet with alkaline foods (vegetables and fruits, primarily) become prone to weak bones, joints and muscles, heart disease, diabetes, kidney disease, and a host of other health problems. In other words, long-term health and longevity have everything to do with acid-alkaline balance."
