Nut consumption and risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and all-cause mortality

An extensive review of 29 publications including over 800,000 participants associates total nut consumption with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and all-cause mortality. A dose-response relationship was reported, meaning that at least 20g/day is thought to be beneficial, while 28g/day is optimal (see below for examples). Read more about the study here.What does 28g/day look like?

“I now eat far more veggies, and look at packaging, cutting processed foods, and working on cutting out sugar.”
“I don’t look at meat as the main part of my meal.  I eat less meat and more fruits and vegetables.  I seek out plant-based recipes.  Lastly, I try and will continue to try to eat foods I have not eaten before, e.g. eggplant and kale. (Still not fond of kale, but at least I tried it.)"
“Excellent session.  I continue to be amazed at what I didn’t know and how easy it will be to change to healthier eating.”
