Daily Handful of Nuts Linked to Lower Mortality Risk
Study finds nuts can be a healthful contributor to your diet.
Eating a daily handful of nutsóabout one ounce or three tablespoonsócould reduce your risk of dying from the most common causes of death. Results from the largest study of its kind, following nearly 119,000 men and women for up to 24 years, show that regular consumers of any type of nuts were less likely to die from heart disease, cancer and lung disease or from all causes than non-nut eaters. As frequency of nut consumption went up, mortality risk dropped.
