Researchers at Vanderbilt University and in China studied more than 200,000 subjects in order to assess the correlation of nut consumption with lower death rates.

The scientists found a 20 percent lower rate of all-cause mortality and death from cardiovascular disease in those that ate the most nuts.

There was also a 38 percent decline in heart disease in the highest nut-ingesting group.

In the May 2015 issue of JAMA Internal Medicine, the authors concluded, “Consumption of nuts, particularly peanuts, may be considered a cost-effective measure to improve cardiovascular health.”

It was not too long ago that the powers that be told us that eating foods high in cholesterol, such as nuts, would cause heart disease.

They said we needed to eat low-fat foods to solve the obesity epidemic in America.

We followed their advice, and we have become the heaviest people to ever inhabit this planet.

Nuts, which are high in fats, protect against heart disease and death because of their beneficial fats. They also contain vitamins, fiber, and other phytochemicals.

A handful of nuts is a great snack for anyone, including children.

So go nuts!
