A recent major research showed amongst other things, that just eating nuts once in a while, lowered the death rate by 7% over 30 years!
Eating nuts once a week, lowered the death rate by 11%, whilst people who ate nuts five to six times a week had a 15% lower death rate!
The "Dana-Farber Cancer Cancer Institute", "Brigham and Women’s Hospital", and "Harvard".
People were asked every few years, for a period of thirty years, how often they had eaten a serving of nuts.
Never or almost never, one to three times a month, once a week, two to four times a week, five or six times a week, once a day, two or three times a day, four to six times a day, or more than six times a day.
"The most obvious benefit was a reduction of 29% in deaths from heart disease which is the major killer of people in America. And we also saw a significant reduction of 11%, in the risk of dying from cancer".
said Dr. Charles Fuchs of Dana-Farber, who led the team.
"In all these analyses, the more nuts people ate, the less likely they were to die over the 30-year follow-up period!
