Can anyone please tell me if “walnut oil” remains “Super beneficial” in the Cardiovascular Health Series book for A’s. And, is their oil frequency 5-8 tblsp? And since I am at it, any difference for non-sec? Thank you.

My A brother in law suffered a heart attack last month at the age of 59. Very healthy chap. He walked briskly on a daily basis, ate moderately and did not have more than an ounce of body fat, did not smoke, drank alcohol very moderately (only red wine and beer), lead an outdoor life, relaxed.... Least expected person for such an illness. As the Dr. says: “Genetic or congenital.”   Fortunately he was attended very early by a very good Dr. and his heart has hardly suffered.

By Dr.’s recommendation, as his legs were hurting two months previous, he got a blood test. Only items with asterisk: Glucose 112, Cholesterol 215; HDL 55. No LDL on test or at least I did not see it in the fast browse I did.

His diet consisted of high glucemic load; white wheat bread, potatoes, sugar, and sweetened fruit juices on a daily basis. He also had dairy on a daily basis and red meat quite frequently. Because of the small amount of food he ingests, these represent probably at least 80% of total.

The Dr. has him on a no salt diet even though he does not have high BP. I am assuming it is because he placed a medicated stent (I am also assuming this) which has a higher risk of clots. It seems I am the only one with questions so I do not voice them out of respect. But I do so here. I hope it is ok.

For Epiphany (Jan 6th), I wanted to give him a pack of organic green tea and a bottle of Walnut oil to liven up his vegetables but only if highly beneficial. Poor chap, if the BTD is hard try no salt. The environment is too focused on a low fat diet. I do not want to go against the trend for a “neutral”.

Thank you and I wait “impatiently” for your contributions.

Happy new year to all of you.

Walnut oil is beneficial, not super beneficial, for all type As in the Cardiovascular Disease book and yes the serving size remains at 5-8 tbsp. per week.

Olive oil and flaxseed oil are super beneficial for type A in the Cardiovascular Disease book.

Thanks MoDon.

Beneficial is good enough to risk family's anger at my proposal since I do not think he will enjoy flax oil.

It also settles my conscience I am not giving something that can harm him.

Thanks again and also for your fast reply.

Susana, any time you have them for din-din, etc, just sneak some in the food.  I do this for my DH all the time. Emptied out part of his cr*ppy salad dressing bottle and replaced it w/ beneficial oils.
