Walnuts contain a number of compounds with anti-tumor effects. One of these, ellagic acid, has been shown to inhibit colon cancer cell proliferation and angiogenesis in a number of laboratory studies. Flaxseed oil has a similar effect as walnuts on tumor growth, but doesn not suppress angiogenesis to the same degree.

Tortoise shell inspiration. There's almost a touch of green with the brown, orange and gold. Very warm; I can see this for a living room, den, family room or bedroom. These are mature colors (no acid or electric hues or pastels) so I can also see more solid furnishings, brocade or damask upholstery and draperies. Not suited for chrome and glass!
This time of year, my Grampa always had bowls of walnuts (and other nuts) in their shells with nut crackers on every table. I remember sitting for hours and cracking open walnuts and almonds and filberts and pecans with him. He hadn't set out bowls of nuts in years, but somehow this year, so soon after his passing, I miss it most of all. ♥
