Eating Nuts Can Lower The Rate Of Deaths

Eating Nuts Can Lower The Rate Of Deaths | heart health news | Scoop.it

A largest study states that people who consumed a handful of nuts everyday faced 20% lesser chance than those who did not consume nuts by a period of 30 years. The researchers from Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard School of public health and Women’s hospital conducted this study. The results of the study were published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Regular nut eaters had a slender figure than those who did not eat nuts, which eliminates the concerns people had that they would put on weight if they ate nuts.

The reports of the study did not fail to indicate the protective nature of nuts. Charles S Fuchs, MD, MPH, The Director, Gastrointestinal Cancer Center plus the Senior Author of this report said that there was a drastic reduction in the mortality rate by 29% especially from heart diseases, which kills most of American people. The study also showed that about 11% reduction in the cancer deaths among patients. It is notable that Fuchs is also affiliated with the Channing Division of Network Medicine at Brigham and Women’s.

The study however, did not convey which type of nuts was good or were of protective type. The study just revealed both peanuts and other tree nuts such as cashews, walnuts, pecans, pistachios, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, pine nuts and macadamias had the ability to reduce mortality rates.

Previously, some studies found a link between high consumption of nuts and low risk of diseases such as colon cancer, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, diverticulitis, gall stones etc. Apart from these diseases, nuts also have an ability to reduce cholesterol levels, oxidation stress levels, resistance to insulin, adiposity and inflammation. No research studies have found the levels of consumption of nut and its effect totally on the mortality rate of the population for more than 30 years.

Sophisticated methods of data analysis were employed to arrive at the benefits of nuts in lowering the mortality rates. This made the analysis to draw a balance between the nuts and the rate of mortality depending on various factors that had the ability to influence the low rates of deaths.
