Half a handful of walnuts daily reduces the risk of premature death, according to a recent Dutch study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology.
What’s more, some past research recommends the connection among walnuts and cardiovascular infection, but this is the first that unambiguously confirms that relationship, according to scientists.
Experts at the Maastricht University in Holland have determined through a ten-year study that by 23 percent the risk of premature death in people who ate at least ten grams of walnuts or peanuts per day was reduced by 23 percent. However, this can not be said of the popular peanut butter, which is salty and fat, doctors warn.
In excess of 120,000 people matured 55 to 59 gave information on their dietary propensities in 1986, and following 10 years their death rate was analyzed. The risk of premature death due to cancer, diabetes, respiratory and neurodegenerative diseases was lower among those who ate nuts, the study showed.
Teacher Piet van sanctum Brand, who drove the exploration, stated: “It’s astounding that the lower hazard is as of now obvious while devouring 15 grams of walnuts or nuts every day.”
Experts during the research also took into account the fact that those who ate nuts, consumed more fruits and vegetables, and that women who ate nuts were weaker.
