I think Dr. Mark Hyman summarizes this beautifully! You decide! As for me and my family, we’ve done our homework and we know what’s best for our health.
Peanut butter is considered healthy by many in terms of the protein and fat content, but the problem is that it is very high in omega-6 fatty acids.
We need to consume Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids in a 1:4 ratio, but most Americans are consuming them in a 1:25 ratio due to refined oils and other processed ingredients in our packaged food (and fast food).
Peanuts are also stored in moist silos which can cause them to grow a type of fungus called aflatoxins and these affect the health of your gut. It competes with probiotics (the good bacteria) which are essential for gut health. Peanuts are also a common allergen and linked to food sensitivities, leaky gut syndrome and a slow metabolism.
