The body of evidence about nuts and health continues to grow. These local and international research papers, recently published, corroborate decades of research about the importance of a healthy handful of nuts in a healthy diet.

Association of Nut Intake with Risk Factors, Cardiovascular Disease, and Mortality in 16 Countries From 5 Continents: Analysis from the Prospective Urban and Rural Epidemiology (PURE) Study. (2020).
de Souza R. et al.
Higher nut intake was associated with lower mortality risk from both cardiovascular and non-cardiovascular causes in low-, middle-, and high-income countries.

Association Between Healthy Eating Patterns and Risk of Cardiovascular Disease. (2020).
Shan Z. et al.
In 3 large prospective cohorts with up to 32 years of follow-up, greater adherence to various healthy eating patterns was consistently associated with lower risk of CVD. These findings support the recommendations of the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, emphasising diets rich in wholegrains, fruits and vegetables, nuts and legumes.

Meta-analysis of the Association Between Nut Consumption and the Risks of Cancer Incidence and Cancer-Specific Mortality (2020).
Zhang D. et al.
Nut consumption is inversely associated with the risks of cancer incidence and mortality; a higher intake is significantly associated with a lower cancer risk.

The influence of cultural attitudes to nut exposure on reported nut allergy: A pilot cross sectional study (2020).
Kayale LB. et al.
The development of peanut and almond allergy through tolerance induction could be prevented by frequent and early ingestion of a moderate quantity of nuts during infancy and by maternal ingestion during pregnancy or lactation.
