Forget meditation, walnuts can help you de-stress
About the author: 

Stress causes illness, and it has been linked to heart disease and even cancer - but you don't have to start yoga or meditation in order to lower your levels

Stress causes illness, and it has been linked to heart disease and even cancer - but you don't have to start yoga or meditation in order to lower your levels. The humble walnut will work just fine, say researchers.
Walnuts and walnut oil - both rich in omega-3 - help the body cope with stress levels, a new study has discovered. They lower blood pressure and reduce LDL, or 'bad', cholesterol levels.
Researchers tested the walnut diet on a group of 22 volunteers for six weeks. Their resting blood pressure and blood pressure responses to stressful situations improved over the study period.
