Researchers recommend upping nut consumption to lessen risk

Eating more nuts — especially tree nuts such as walnuts and almonds — was associated with lower cardiovascular risk in people with diabetes, according to a large prospective cohort study.

Compared with study participants who ate less than one serving of nuts per month, those who consumed five or more servings per week had a 17% reduction in total cardiovascular disease incidence (HR 0.83, 95% CI 0.71-0.98, P=0.01), reported Gang Liu, PhD, of Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, and colleagues in Circulation Research.
