Here’s the good news
Eat nuts for your health
Pecans, walnuts, cashews
macadamias, if you choose
Just remember please
Peanuts are not nuts
They’re legumes, just like peas
no ifs, ands or buts
The analysis of tree nut consumption included 826 patients. Previous studies showed positive associations between regular consumption of nuts reduction in cardiovascular disease and cancer, as well as a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and insulin resistance.*
The results showed that patients who consumed two or more 1-oz servings of nuts weekly had a 42% lower risk of cancer recurrence and a 57% lower risk of death from any cause during the follow-up period.
“The associations were limited to tree-nut intake and were not significant for consumption of peanuts or peanut butter,” said Fadelu. “The biologic mechanism is unknown but is likely related to the effect of nuts on insulin resistance.”
