Earlier this month, the Washington Post featured an article written by Consumer Reports that discussed the top five food choices that may help you age better according to recent research; among those on the list was nuts. "Research suggests that nuts may be tiny packages of healthy goodness. A New England Journal of Medicine study followed almost 120,000 men and women for 30 years. Study volunteers who ate at least an ounce of nuts (about 23 almonds, 18 cashews, 12 macadamia nuts or 14 walnut halves) daily had a 20% lower risk of dying from several conditions — especially cancer, heart disease and respiratory issues— during the study period than people who ate no nuts. Even those who downed nuts two to four times per week had a 13% lower risk of dying."
