Go Nuts for Nuts

From American Institute for Cancer Research 

Excerpt: “Eating nuts at least four times a week may reduce the risk of cancer overall, including colorectal cancer, when compared to eating nuts less than once a week, finds a new analysis of the research. The analysis focused on the effect of nuts on both cancer risk and type 2 diabetes.

Researchers found 36 studies on the topic overall, including observational, clinical trials, and case controls.

After comparing people who ate the most nuts (typically at least 4-5 times per week) to those who ate the least (typically 1 time per week or less), the study found that the high nut eaters had 15 percent lower risk of cancer overall. In specific cancers, they found lower risk for colorectal, endometrial and pancreatic cancer.”
