Nuts and Heart Attack Risk

Did you know that eating nuts five or more times a week may reduce your risk of heart attack by 60%? The 1990's California Adventist Health Study found that in addition to reducing the risk of heart attack by up to 60%, eating nuts was one of the four top factors for extending longevity. The beneficial effects were found for males, females, vegetarians, meat-eaters, fatter people, thinner people, the old, the young, those who exercise and those who don't.
