Nuts would allow you to live longer

In 2015, Dutch researchers showed that those who consume around 10 grams of nuts and/or peanuts per day have a reduced risk of mortality overall or due to specific diseases (cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, etc.) compared to people who do not consume it.

Researchers collected information regarding the lifestyle and eating habits of 120,852 men and women aged 55 to 69. They examined the relationship between participants’ consumption of nuts, peanuts and peanut butter and overall and disease-specific mortality during 10 years of follow-up. Average intakes of nuts (including peanuts) were 8.1 g/day in men and 4.4 g/day in women. For peanut butter, the average intakes are 1.4 g and 1.2 g for men and women respectively.
