Peanuts / Peanut Butter

Postby daniel » Wed Sep 29, 2010 10:40 am

I think we should probably be avoiding deliciously tasty peanut butter :(

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9727614?dopt=Abstract

Abstract
Peanut oil is unexpectedly atherogenic for rats, rabbits, and primates. The lesions it produces are more fibrous than fatty. The mechanism underlying the atherogenicity of peanut oil has been elusive. Randomization of peanut oil reduces significantly its atherogenic properties, but native and randomized peanut oils have similar rates of lipolysis, and rats fed the two oils absorb and transport lipids in a similar fashion. Peanut oil differs from other oils in having a relatively high lectin content, and the randomization process markedly reduces the lectin content as well. The biologically active lectin of peanut oil has an affinity for glycoproteins found specifically on arterial smooth muscle cells. Peanut lectin has been shown to stimulate growth of smooth muscle and pulmonary arterial cells. Vigorous washing of peanut oil reduces its lectin content by 46%. Compared to rabbits fed cholesterol and peanut oil, rabbits fed cholesterol and washed peanut oil exhibited less severe atherosclerosis in the aortic arch (by 9%) and in the thoracic aorta (by 31%). The data suggest that peanut oils' endogenous lectin may contribute significantly to its atherogenic properties.


If it's bad for arteries it's probably not that great for veins either...

Peanuts are not permitted in the best bet diet & the MS recovery Diet due to their lectins.

I have a really nasty allergy to peanuts. Even a tiny amount will produce an immediate and painful reaction. It feels like being stung in the mouth by a dozen bees. So needless to say I never eat peanuts. I suppose that's lucky for me in light of this article.

We actually substitute almond butter, sunflower butter & cashew butter for peanut butter. Sunflower butter is the most 'peanutty' of the 3, but they are all pretty good - a little more pricey than peanut butter however.
Sorry for getting away from the CCSVI topic.

Give up peanut butter? Are you nuts? I require double-blind placebo-controlled studies universally endorsed by all MS researchers.

For CCSVI, I'm pretty much prepared go along with what Zamboni says.

:-) Next they'll suggest I give up coffee. Like I travelled all the way to Poland just to do that...

I am on almond butter for its effect on my 'good' cholesterol. I love peanut butter, but a heart attack changes everything.

Peanuts and peanut butter have been a staple for me since childhood. I literally took peanut butter and honey sandwiches to school for lunch everyday for several years - no shit.

I did not know this, thanks.

My kids are not going to like this development....

Peanuts aren't even "nuts" -- they're really legumes. My daughter is allergic to peanuts. But if you like peanuts and peanut butter, you can still have great nut butters, like tzootzi says -- there are lots of other choices. We love almond butter (try it with honey or molasses!), cashew butter, etc.

And of course there's tahini. :-) (Halvah anyone?)

My son loves his "irish toast" -- layered with nut butter, sliced banana, and honey.
