Foods4BetterHealth Reports on Nut Consumption and Longevity: Study


Boston, MA (PRWEB) December 03, 2013

Foods4BetterHealth.com, a new food and nutrition web site operating on the belief that healthy foods can prevent disease and illness, is reporting on a new study, which found that eating nuts may be linked to increased longevity.

As Foods4BetterHealth notes (http://www.foods4betterhealth.com/can-eating-nuts-make-you-live-longer-6295), a new study, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, looked at the link between eating nuts and mortality. The researchers examined the eating habits of over 76,000 women and 42,000 men, and specifically their nut consumption and mortality, for 20 years. By the end of the study, the researchers noted that the participants with an increased nut consumption (seven or more times a week) had a 20% lower risk of dying from any causes, compared to the participants who didnt eat nuts. (Source: Bao, Y., et al., Association of Nut Consumption with Total and Cause-Specific Mortality, N Engl J Med 2013; 369: 2,001-2,011.)

As the Foods4BetterHealth article Can Eating Nuts Make You Live Longer? notes, not only did the participants have a reduced risk of mortality, they also had a lower risk of dying from heart disease, cancer, and lung infections and were less likely to gain weight.

The author of the report, Dr. K.J. McLaughlin, observes that the study does have some severe limitations; for one, it was an observational study, and therefore, the researchers could not prove cause and effect (that it was eating nuts that caused the reduced risk of mortality and disease). However, he also notes that the study did have a large sample size and a large follow-up time period, which adds credibility to the study.

The Foods4BetterHealth report concludes that eating nuts has already shown to have many health benefits, and this study further adds credibility to this theory. Eating nuts can not only help one live longer, but also reduce ones risk of disease.

Foods4BetterHealth.com, created by Doctors Health Press, is a food news and health web site, offering readers information about the latest food controversies, exclusive expert advice, and health tips to ward off illness, prevent disease, and live a long, healthy life.
