People Who Eat More Nuts Live Longer

Grab a handful of walnuts and live longer? That’s what a new study suggests. In a recent study, people who ate more nuts — particularly walnuts — had reduced risks of cancer and heart disease, smaller body masses, and other factors that contribute to health and longevity. In a longitudinal study of more than 7,000 people over 50 years old in Spain, the study found that those who ate nuts more than three times a week had reduced risks of cancer and cardiovascular disease compared to non-nut eaters.

Posted by on Jul 5, 2013 in Naturopathic | 0 comments

By GRETCHEN REYNOLDS In an eye-opening demonstration of nature’s ingenuity, researchers at Princeton University recently discovered that exercise creates vibrant new brain cells — and then shuts them down when they shouldn’t be in action.
