It Is Just Nuts

From BottomLinePERSONAL, March 1, 2017

(Nuts have been on my mind since the BlueZone awareness was raised again recently – I Blogged about it here. It is weird: I always loved nuts but, when I looked at my habits, they were not prevalent – I have fixed that. Here is why you should too! )

This is from a review of data from 20 prospective studies leg by researchers at Imperial College London, UK, and Harvard T. H. School of Public Health, Boston, published in BMC Medicine.

Here is what they had to say:

Just a few nuts a day may lower disease risk. In a review of studies, people who ate nuts had a 29% lower risk for coronary heart disease… 21% reduced risk for cardiovascular disease…and 15% lower risk for cancer. Nut eaters also had a 52% lower risk for respiratory disease…39% lower risk for diabetes…and 75% lower reduced risk for infectious disease. Most risk reduction for all diseases occurred in people who ate just one once of nuts per day-about two dozen almonds or 15 pecan halves.

(If you like nuts, it shouldn’t be too hard to get more of them into your life. Then you will get into the whole issue of soaking the nuts before you eat them… but that is different story. No wise cracks now from the peanut gallery, Ok? Restrain yourselves, please…:-)
