Natural Nonpareil Supreme Almonds from the sunny inland valleys of Northern California. This delicious California nut is considered to be good luck in many parts of the world! Research conducted at the University of California at Davis showed that a high-fat diet rich in whole almonds reduced the colon cancer risk in rats chemically treated to reduce this cancer. Other research indicated that phytochemicals in almonds inhibit tumor cell growth in culture. Specifically, the board notes, two flavonoid phytochemicals, known as quercetin and kaempferol, may be strong suppressors of lung and prostate tumor cell growth.
