Eating peanuts, cashews and Brazil nuts instead of sweets and fat reduces the likelihood of risks by about 30%. Such a change in diet also reduced the number of deaths in general, from various diseases, by 17%.
Last year, scientists reported in the Medical Journal of England that eating nuts significantly reduced the number of premature deaths from heart attacks, and also reduced the risk of death from cancer by 11%. Nuts are rich in unsaturated acids, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients.
All of them work together to reduce cholesterol and reduce inflammation in the body.
The study completes a series of studies that have already been conducted that consider the effect of certain foods in the diet on human health. Experts from the University of Science and Technology of Hua Zhong in China and the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston in the United States thus studied the effect of nuts, based on the totality of the material already studied.
The results of such a large-scale study look much more solid and inspire confidence than the usual rather modest in terms of coverage. In total, the Sino-American team of scientists conducted 18 different studies that covered more than 12 thousand people with type 2 diabetes, 15 thousand with cardiovascular diseases and nearly 50 thousand deaths.
The results that showed such a serious reduction in the risk of heart disease and a reduction in the number of deaths in general, provided the daily consumption of nuts, however, showed no significant difference in the rates of diabetes and a reduction in the risk of stroke.
