Compared to people who avoid nuts, those who eat nuts on a regular basis tend to have a lower risk for diabetes, better cardiovascular health, a reduced mortality risk, and greater longevity. Eating nuts at least five times per week was associated with a 29% drop in mortality risk from heart disease, and an 11% drop in mortality risk from cancer. Even those who ate nuts only occasionally — less than once a week — had a 7% reduction in mortality. More recently, Dutch researchers found that people who ate just 10gms of nuts each day had a 23% lower risk of death from any cause. This study went on for 10 years and included more than 120,000 men and women between the ages of 55 and 69.
