Eat Nuts, Live Longer

Several health studies conducted worldwide have clearly suggested that nuts are the right food that provides longevity.

Nuts generally include almonds, cashews, pistachios, macadamias, pecans, walnuts, pine nuts and so on.

Nuts are known to be rich in protein, unsaturated fats, vitamins, and anti-oxidants which are known to directly reduce chances of heart diseases.


A research conducted by researchers from Birmingham & Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School drew a relation between consumption of nuts and deaths. They found out that those who maintained regular intake of nuts were found to be healthier and lead longer lives than their counterparts.

The researchers reported that regular consumers of nuts were less likely to be troubled with diseases such as cancer, heart and respiratory disease.

People who consume nuts are healthier, slimmer and don’t take to cigarette smoking even.

How much nuts should are good for healthy?

However, it’s still not clear what should be the amount of regular nut intake for a healthy living. The answer to the query can only be derived as more investigations find ground in the correlation between nuts and longevity of life.


There is new research that suggests people who consume 1-ounce of nuts each day showed 20 per cent reduced risks of dying from any health cause over three decades when compared to the others who don’t include nuts in their daily diet. But, being more of an observational study, this can’t be relied upon fully.

However, what can be easily concluded is that nuts do play an important role in prolonging of good health in a person.
