Would you like to get paid to binge on Avocados?

Would you like to get paid to binge on Avocados?

As no surprise, the study is funded by the Hass Avocado Board and they are likely hoping the outcome of this study will put their fruit in a favorable light.

Participants will be assigned to one of two groups: one will eat one avocado every day for six months, while the other will eat just two per month.

The aim of the study - "The Habitual Diet and Avocado Trial- is to find out whether avocados aid in weight loss and there are a number of requirements for the participants".

Avocados are a rich source of heart-healthy fats that can help cholesterol, but there are concerns that this fruit is not as healthy as it may seem.

Scientists at Loma Linda University have been wondering exactly this, and have made a decision to conduct a study on people who are willing to eat avocados on a day-to-day basis.

El cambio de hora puede llegar hoy a su fin
Ello implicaría menos horas de luz veraniega durante las tardes y, por tanto, menos tiempo de ocio diurno. Según informa Juncker , "millones" de ciudadanos pidieron mantener el horario de verano todo el año .

Those who make it through the study will get $300.

The universities are looking for 1,000 total participants, with 250 people at each of the four schools. "You will be given one avocado per day to eat with your usual diet or you will follow your usual diet", one program page of the study promises. In addition, other participants will eat two avocados per month. The team is calling out to men and women over the age of 25 years who have waist measurements of 40 and 35 inches or more respectively.

Loma Linda University also explained how the study will work. Wake Forest University of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, will analyze the data once it's collected. "For the last 20 years, we have been doing dietary intervention studies on plant-based foods and nuts", he said in a statement.

Aside from the payment, participants will also have monthly access to a dietician and receive a free MRI and health screening, making this a ideal offer for a hungry college student. "We are rigorous in our selection of projects", he told Loma Linda University Health news.
