Unexpected results came scientists at Brigham Women's hospital. According to the findings, all patients with prostate cancer should regularly eat pistachios, walnuts, cashews and hazelnuts. So it is possible to significantly reduce the probability of death from cancer. On the work done reports Zee News.
The study involved about 50 000 volunteers with prostate cancer. Cause of death the disease began in 10% of cases. Prostate cancer is one of the most aggressive types of cancer. In other cases, men died from diseases of the cardiovascular system and a number of other reasons. Scientists have noticed that regular consumption of nuts reduces the risk of death from prostate cancer by 34%.
This phenomenon has a scientific explanation. Nuts enhance tissue sensitivity to the hormone insulin, the main substance responsible for the metabolism of carbohydrates.
