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.
