At the end of the study participants in both groups will be paid $300 each.

Loma Linda University has teamed up with Penn State University, Tufts University and the University of California Los Angeles to answer a big question: Can someone reduce the visceral adipose fat - that's the risky kind of fat - in their abdomen by eating one avocado a day for six months?

The 1,000 people who sign up will eat an avocado every day for six months. Men need to have a waist measurement of at least 101 centimeters (40 inches) and women at least 89 centimeters (35 inches). Participants who meet the requirements will get $300 when the study is over. They, in addition would be given 24 avocados.

Mr Ratcliffe said she spoke yesterday of a headache and feeling numbness in her legs and numbness in her right arm and a rash. He tweeted: "Unbearable suffering to be aside from [her] daughter with her hopes raised then dashed".


According to Loma Linda University, the study is being funded by the Hass Avocado Board - which "promotes the consumption of Hass avocados in the United States", its website claims.

If you love avocados, you can make some extra cash by eating one every day.

Those chosen will receive a free MRI and health screening and are asked to attend a monthly meeting with a dietitian. An upcoming study by an American university wants to find out if avocados help in losing belly fat by making willing participants eat the fruit daily for six months - all in the name of research.

The university is now calling for participants willing to take part in the study.
