Yes, you guessed it. It's my one and only personal blog / journal in which I somehow end up circumventing my inner feelings and deeper emotions which I feel like sharing to an unknown and unavailable friend. Needless content is pmpulsive, and reflective of my mood swings, completely uncensored. Also included are interesting collectibles which I found interesting to collate for reference.

Walnuts and Fish Protect Against Heart Disease
Following the qualified health claim issued by the Food and Drug Administration, researchers found that incorporating approximately 40gms of walnuts (a handful of whole nuts or about three tablespoons of chopped nuts) into the daily diet lowered serum total cholesterol by 5.4 percent and LDL (bad) cholesterol by 9.3 percent compared to a control diet based on USDA recommendations. For this study subjects were randomly assigned to each of the three diets for eight weeks over a 24-week schedule. This gave the researchers a chance to compare the effect of each diet on each participant.
