Some of our very favorite nuts that grow on tree such as my favorite---almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts, pistachios and even macadamias, pecans, and walnuts − are linked to a 20 percent lower death rate.  And those of us who eat nuts---we have a 29% lower risk of heart disease and even 11% lower risk of dreaded cancer---compared to those who DO NOT eat nuts.  And from this study the folks who consumed nuts were generally thinner and have even healthier lifestyles.  So---let's go nuts!!  (RedOrbit)
