In addition to being tasty and healthy, nuts are able to reduce the risk of death from heart disease. American scientists have found out: peanuts, for example, can change the lives of people who do not have expensive treatment or prophylaxis of heart disease.
Nuts growing on trees rich in nutrients. Peanuts also refer to legumes, but in composition it is still similar to nuts. Xiao-Ou Shu from the University of Vanderbilt analyzed three groups of individuals (a total of 71764 volunteers from low-income families - Americans and African-Americans, as well as 13.4265 Chinese people living in Shanghai).
It turned out that men in both countries consumed more peanuts than women. In the United States, about 50% of the total consumption of nuts falls on peanuts. In China, however, the scientist took into account only the consumption of peanuts. The result is as follows: in general, the consumption of nuts was reflected in overall mortality and mortality statistics from cardiovascular disease in all groups. In the United States, there was a decrease in overall mortality by 21% among people who more than others consumed peanuts. Among the Chinese, the risk was reduced by 17%.
