A Handful of Nuts 3 Times per Week May Cut the Risk of Irregular Heartbeat
A large Swedish study suggests that eating a handful of nuts three times a week may reduce the risk of developing an irregular heartbeat, which is considered to be a major cause of stroke.
For the study, a team of researchers from Karolinska Institute looked at over 60,000 Swedish adults and tracked their consumption of nuts and almonds, as well as their heart health during about 17 years. Having analyzed the received data, the scientists concluded that eating nuts were associated with lower risk of heart attack and stroke.
The authors of the study concluded: “Since only a small proportion of this population had moderate (about 5%) or high (less than 2%) nut consumption, even a small increase in nut consumption may have large potential to lead to a reduction in incidence of atrial fibrillation and heart failure in this population.”
