A Real Nut Case

Wed, 19 Apr 2006 from RealAge.com

New research is making a strong case in favor of adding more nuts to your diet.

In a study, the people who ate an ounce of nuts or a couple of tablespoons of peanut butter five times per week had a much lower risk of type 2 diabetes compared to the people who rarely ate nuts or peanut butter. Nuts are high in healthy fats and other nutrients that may help ward off type 2 diabetes by keeping blood sugar levels steady.
