For some time now we’ve been told: eating nuts has a part in preventing cancer and type 2 diabetes. Although, the evidence has always been inconsistent.
Researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, have carried out a study which indicates:
“nut consumption was inversely associated with risk of colorectal cancer, endometrial cancer, and pancreatic cancer, but not with other types of cancer or type 2 diabetes. Overall, nut intake was associated with a decreased risk of cancer.”
Irrespective of this research, I like nuts so I’m still going to eat them; they are a good source of unsaturated fat — an important part of the diet.
