A Study (funded by the Hass Avocado Board) Suggests Women Can Reduce Their Visceral Abdominal Fat by Eating an Avocado a Day – (this is not a joke)

Female participants who consumed an avocado a day as part of their meal had a reduction in visceral abdominal fat — the hard-to-target fat associated with higher risk — and experienced a reduction in the ratio of visceral fat to subcutaneous fat, indicating a redistribution of fat away from the organs. However, fat distribution in males did not change, and neither males nor females had improvements in glucose tolerance.

I love reading about studies that demonstrate the positive health benefits of a particular product where the organization that funded the study has as its primary objective to increase sales of the product that was studied.
