I was delighted to read that The New England Journal Of Medicine just published a paper with the snappy title of Association of Nut Consumption with Total and Cause-Specific Mortality

As compared with participants who did not eat nuts, those who consumed nuts seven or more times per week had a 20% lower death rate. Inverse associations were observed for most major causes of death, including heart disease, cancer, and respiratory diseases.

The risk of dying of heart disease dropped an astounding 29%!

Heard that myself yesterday. Good news after being told ground grown nuts were bad for us. At the rate I eat them, I might just live forever!
