There are many holiday cookies you can make this holiday season and that are so good, it’s worth it to make them, according to a new study.
The study found that, in some cases, cookies that are good for you can have a negative impact on your health.
The researchers conducted a survey of 4,000 adults in their 50s and 60s who were asked about their diet, lifestyle and health.
They found that nearly half of the respondents said they ate unhealthy foods during the holidays, with 40 percent of the participants eating less than 20 percent of their calories from fat.
The authors say they’re not recommending eating unhealthy foods to everyone, but those who choose to don healthy holiday treats for their family and friends.
The study was published online in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.
“People who eat a lot of cookies at Christmas should be concerned that the unhealthy holiday treats that are sold on the market might be a factor in their increased risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, cancer and other chronic diseases,” said lead author Jessica Karp of the University of California, Los Angeles, in a statement.
“The healthier cookies you buy at Christmas, they’re more likely to be low in saturated fat, low in cholesterol, high in fiber and vitamins.”
The survey also found that the average American consumes about 1.6 cookies a day.
That is more than the number of people who die from heart disease every day, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
