A study published in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine has found that eating nuts may actually help extend one's lifespan.
The the three-decade long study involving more than 118,000 healthy volunteers found that those who regularly consumed a one-ounce daily serving of walnuts, almonds, cashews or other tree nuts had a 20 percent lower risk of dying compared to those who did not eat nuts.
Nut eaters were 25 percent less likely to die from heart disease, 10 percent less likely to die from cancer, and 20 percent less likely to die from diabetes as well as lung diseases. The study also found that nut eaters enjoyed longer lifespans even if they did not exercise, avoided fruits and vegetables, and were overweight.
Of course, this would probably mean the complete opposite for people who are actually allergic to nuts. Guess you can't win them all.
