Eating nuts may increase health and lower death risk

People who regularly eat nuts appear to live longer, according to the largest study of its kind.

The study followed nearly 120,000 people for 30 years. The more regularly people consumed nuts, the less likely they were to die during the study.

People eating nuts once a week were 11% less likely to have died during the study than those who never ate nuts.

Up to four portions was linked to a 13% reduction in deaths and a daily handful of nuts cut the death rate during the study by 20%.

The British Heart Foundation said more research was needed to prove the link.
