British Heart Foundation: Handful of Peanuts Reduced the Risk of Heart Attack

26 Jun 2009 --- Eating more of one food in isolation will not make a dramatic difference to your health if you are inactive and don't have a balanced diet.

26/06/09 In response to a study published in The Journal of Nutrition which showed how eating peanuts reduced the risk of heart attack in women with type two diabetes, British Heart Foundation (BHF) cardiac nurse Ellen Mason said:

"It is beneficial to include nuts in our diets as they are low in the saturated fats that raise our cholesterol.

"However peanut products can be full of added sugar or salt so check the label first as this may cancel out their positive benefits. Also don't forget that nuts are high in overall calories.

"In this study the women who ate lots of nuts had healthier lifestyles than those who didn't. Eating more of one food in isolation will not make a dramatic difference to your health if you are inactive and don't have a balanced diet."
