  1. -11-21-13 Nuts for Longevity (Time.com)
      "Researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School looked at nut consumption and deaths from all causes among 76,464 women participating in the Nurse’s Health Study and 42,498 men involved in the Health Professionals Follow-up Study. They asked the participants about their nut consumption, including how many almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, pine nuts, pistachios or walnuts they typically ate."

      "Those who reported regularly consuming nuts were less likely to die from a variety of diseases, most significantly cancer, heart disease and respiratory diseases. People who ate nuts seven or more times a week, in fact, enjoyed a 20% lower death rate after four years than individuals who did not eat nuts. Nut eaters also tended to be leaner, more physically active, and non smokers." 11-13
