Nuts may lower risk of heart disease for those with type II diabetes

New research suggests that eating nuts may lower the risk of heart disease in people with Type II diabetes.

Researchers surveyed more than 16,000 people about their consumption of nuts over several years and found that those who ate five servings of nuts per week had a lower risk of developing heart disease.

That’s compared to those who ate less than an ounce of nuts per month.

The research also suggests that tree nuts, such as almonds, walnuts, cashews and pecans, appear to be more beneficial than peanuts.
