Nuts Longer Life

November 21, 2013 by  

Nuts Longer Life, It doesn’t matter what kind of nuts you eat – the health benefits can be life-saving, according to a large study from researchers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard. Just one ounce a day seven times a week were 20 percent less likely to die from a variety of causes such as heart disease, stroke, cancer and respiratory illness. NBC’s Tom Costello reports.

An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but if you want to live longer, a handful of nuts may be a better bet, researchers reported Wednesday.

The biggest study yet into whether nuts can add years to your life shows that people who ate nuts every day were 20 percent less likely to die from heart disease, cancer or any other cause over 30 years than people who didn’t eat them.

And not only that, nuts seem to help keep the pounds off, the team at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and the Harvard School of Public Health found.

“The most obvious benefit was a reduction of 29 percent in deaths from heart disease – the major killer of people in America,” said Dr. Charles Fuchs of Dana-Farber, who led the team. “But we also saw a significant reduction – 11 percent – in the risk of dying from cancer.”

Even peanuts, which technically aren’t nuts but legumes, helped. “We don’t see any difference in the benefits between peanuts and tree nuts,” Fuchs said.
