A Handful of Nuts May Reduce the Risk of Heart Attack by 33%

a handful of nuts

Recent research suggests that a handful of nuts, such as Brazil nut, cashew or pistachios, may reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke by 33% in people with diabetes.

Having performed analysis of the received data, the researchers discovered that people who ate an ounce of the snack food five days every week were at 34% and 17% lower risk to die from heart attack or develop the condition.

Lead author Dr Gang Liu, a nutritional scientist at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts, says: “Our findings provide new evidence that supports the recommendation of including nuts in healthy dietary patterns for the prevention of cardiovascular disease complications and premature deaths among individuals with diabetes.”
