Do you eat nuts? How often? Why do we ask? Well there is some important new information that links eating just one ounce of nuts a day to a 29% decreased risk of heart and a 15% lower cancer risk. As an extra bonus those who ate an ounce a day had a 22 % lower decrease in mortality from all causes. This may seem to be almost too good to be true but the data looks good to us. So grab a handful of nuts and smile.
