Handful of Nuts Able to Keep You from All Chronic Disease Risk

Chronic illness can strike anyone. Especially if his lifestyle is not healthy, eating is not picky and lazy to exercise. But certain foods claimed to help reduce the risk of chronic disease.

Do you remember the phrase 'an apple a day will keep the doctor away'. The same thing was also true for beans. These findings noted researchers from Imperial College London.

The conclusions derived from the observation of the existing 800,000 participants around the world. Researchers also observed various types of nuts consumed, such as hazelnuts or pecans, walnuts or almonds to peanuts.

Further note that eating nuts as much as 20 grams per day or equal to the size of the palm of the hand can reduce the risk of fatal diseases such as cancer and heart disease.

Lowered risk for heart disease reached 30 per cent, 15 per cent of cancer and premature death by 22 percent, as well as diabetes, which is as much as 40 percent.

Those who regularly eat nuts in such amounts also 50 percent less likely to die of diseases of the respiratory system.

One of the researchers, Dagfinn Aune explain the benefits obtained as nuts, especially walnuts and pecans are rich source of healthy nutrients such as fiber, magnesium and polyunsaturated fats (polyunsaturated fats).

"Kind of certain nuts, such as walnuts and pecans are also rich in antioxidants that combat oxidative stress that there is likely to reduce the risk of cancer," said Aune reports the Independent.

Aune admitted that nuts do contain fat, but also high in fiber and protein, so from time to time to reduce the risk of obesity is the forerunner of all diseases.
