Time to become nuts about nuts

Nuts about nutsPistachios, almonds, walnuts… I enjoy eating them all and it seems it is an excellent idea as TreeHugger reports, quoting a 30-year study from the New England Journal of Medicine, which analysed data of over 100,000 people

” Researchers found that those people who ate 1 ounce (28 grams) of nuts daily, seven days a week, were 20 percent less likely to die over a 30-year period compared with those who did not eat nuts.”

” They were also 29 percent less likely to die of heart disease, 11 percent less likely to die from cancer, and 24 percent less likely to die from respiratory disease.”
