Consuming Nuts Can Lower Risk of Death


Analysis of 75,000 women in the Nurses Health Study and more than 40,000 men in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study revealed those who ate nuts once a week had a lower mortality rate than those who do not eat nuts. When nut consumption increased even more, mortality rate fell for both cancer and heart disease. Tree nuts and peanuts demonstrated similar results.

PositiveTip: Nuts should be a part of a balanced, healthful diet.
