Olive oil? Healthy or not?! in General Health and Longevity Posted August 6, 2017 · Report reply Full paper is here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3738153/ As far as I understand, if you are a high nut eater at the beginning of the study and assigned to MED+Nuts group you get 0.37 risk, which means all time nut eaters have the lowest mortality. On the other hand, if you are a high nut eater and assigned to MED+EVOO group, you cut back on nuts and use more EVOO since it's free. Does that mean replacing EVOO with nuts is not a good idea? Nuts > EVOO? Table 2 is more interesting. If you eat just 3 servings of Walnuts a week, you get almost half the mortality. How is that possible, even after adjusting for tons of things? Walnuts >>> EVOO?
