Nutty Buddies

According to a study in The Journal of Nutrition, there is a correlation between high walnut consumption and a reduced risk for Type 2 diabetes in women. Walnuts are high in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and have long been praised for their positive effects on cardiometabolic risk factors. This study followed 138,000 women from ages 35-77 over a 10-year period, taking into account factors such as weight and exercise, and found those who consumed at least eight ounces of walnuts a month reduced their risk for Type 2 diabetes by up to 24 percent.
