Nuts are a rich source of nutrients and may be a health-protective food. Most early studies were done in white, high socioeconomic populations. Researchers have now found the same is true in lower socioeconomic, multi-ethinic populations in both the U.S. and China. Significantly reduced total mortality and death rates from cardiovascular disease in both males and females who ate the most nuts compared to those who ate the least–including peanuts.
PositiveTip: Include modest amounts of nuts and seeds in your diet each day.
