Did you know that eating nuts may help non-metastatic prostate cancer patients?

A new study led by researchers at Chan School of Public Health and the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston has revealed that eating a high amount of nuts may decrease the risk of dying from non-metastatic prostate cancer. Patients suffering from this type of prostate cancer can benefit by eating lots of tree nuts — including almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, pine nuts, Brazil nuts, cashews, walnuts, and pistachios.

There’s currently isn’t a lot of information regarding the connection between nut consumption and prostate cancer incidence, but recent studies have suggested that insulin resistance, a condition that leads to type 2 diabetes, may also lead to prostate cancer risk and progression. For that reason, investigators addressed whether nut consumption could affect prostate cancer incidence or PC-derived mortality.

But why are nuts decreasing the risk of death for non-metastatic prostate cancer patients? Read more about it here.
