Avocados and Your Health

Avocados have a bad reputation. They are listed among the Seven Bad Foods that people try to avoid. This list includes coffee, grape juice and 4 others. But, in actuality, avocados are good for you.
Avocados have a bad rep because they contain cholesterol. The fact of the matter is that dietary cholesterol does not increase cholesterol levels in the blood. Saturated fats increase cholesterol levels.
Avocados contain mono- and polysaturated fats that are heart healthy. This fruit also helps the body as a "nutrient booster" enabling the body to absorb fat soluble nutrients like alpha- and beta carotene and lutein. These are antioxidants, and lutein is also found in avocados.
Avocados contain 20 nutrients including:
Vitamin E
B vitamins
and..... folic acid.

So, don't be afraid of the "Bad " fruit. Enjoy the goodness of the "Good Avocado".
