Cardiovascular Disease - Disease Prevention

Coronary Heart Disease from the Linus Pauling Institute, Micronutrient Research for Optimum Health

"In large prospective cohort studies, regular nut consumption has been consistently associated with significant reductions in the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) (3). One of the first studies to observe a protective effect of nut consumption was the Adventist Health Study, which followed more than 30,000 Seventh Day Adventists over 12 years (4). In general, the dietary and lifestyle habits of Seventh Day Adventists are closer to those recommended for cardiovascular disease prevention than those of average Americans. Few of those who participated in the Adventist Health Study smoked, and most consumed a diet lower in saturated fat than the average American. In this healthy group, those who consumed nuts at least five times weekly had a 48% lower risk of death from CHD and a 51% lower risk of a nonfatal myocardial infarction (MI) compared to those who consumed nuts less than once weekly (4). In Seventh Day Adventists who were older than 83 years of age, those who ate nuts at least five times weekly had a risk of death from CHD that was 39% lower than those who consumed nuts less than once weekly (5). A smaller prospective study of more than 3,000 Black men and women reported similar results (6). Those who consumed nuts at least five times weekly had a risk of death from CHD that was 44% lower than those who consumed nuts less than once weekly (6)."
