Nuts will save you from Colon cancer – Research said

Vastavam web: Researchers have found that eating tree nuts which include almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, cashews, and pecans, among others, is associated with significant reduced risk of colon cancer recurrence. The observational study of 826 patients with stage III colon cancer showed that those who consumed two ounces or more of tree nuts per week had a 46 per cent lower chance of cancer recurrence and 53 per cent lower chance of death than those who did not.

Researchers were particularly interested in nut consumption because it has been linked to lower incidence of obesity, Type-2 diabetes, and reduction in insulin resistance. These health conditions represent a state of excess energy and are each associated with a higher risk of recurrence and death from colon cancer.
