  1. UGHHH, what an obnoxious blonde. Clearly she doesn’t know anything about this topic, so she ought not venture her idle input – it actually reduces this clip’s credibility: 2:28. Trying to have a categorically "cute" chairperson is typical, but when her comments are clearly personal, it’s more appropriate/ credible if the comments are rooted in a verifiable foundation – unlike this demo.
    The guest speaker clearly had the expertise to be teaching – the "cute-ish" host should have let her present the knowledge in plenty. In short: highly unbalanced clip and distractive from the material intended for display.

  2. Lol ! Adding chocolate to ruin all benefits. And btw why only walnut ? I though you might be mixing 5 or 6 different kind of sry fruit. Well such a waste of time

  3. Watch out the dark side of eating nuts! Nuts contain high concentration of Potassium and eating nuts every day for a long period of time can increase the level of Potassium in your body (with extracellular risk) which can develop kyperkalemia with high risk (even death if hyperkalemia levels superates 7mEq/L)…so eat with moderation!
