People who regularly eat nuts have a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and coronary heart disease (CHD) when compared to people who rarely or never eat nuts, according to a study published Nov. 13 in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. This study was done after up to 32 years of follow-up and the researchers assessed the associations of total nut intake and the consumption of individual nuts with CVD, CHD and stroke risk. CVD and CHD included a combination of MI and stroke, but CVD also included all forms of cardiovascular-related death. People who ate one 28-gram serving of nuts at least five times a week cut the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) by 14 percent and the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) by 20 percent when compared to people who rarely or never consumed nuts.
