Nuts are Cancer Preventers

Almost 3,500 breast cancer survivors reported their nutrient intake, including nut consumption, soon after their diagnosis, and were followed for the next 8 years.

Results: nut eaters had overall higher survival, and longer disease-free survival rates, than women who didn't eat nuts.  The greater the amount of nuts consumed, the longer the overall survival rate.

A meta analysis published last year looked at over 30 studies on nut consumption and cancer risk, and found the risk of cancer decreased by 10 percent for every 20 g/day increased intake of nuts.  20 g is about 15 almonds.
