Nuts and healthy diets.

Bruce, B., G.A. Spiller, 1997. Nuts and healthy diets. Veg Nutr: An Int J. 1(1):12-16.

Since ancient times, nuts and seeds have been considered healthful foods worldwide.  This paper looks at the history and composition of a variety of nuts, and their effects on health, particularly heart disease.  According to the authors, “nuts are an under-recognized and under-consumed food in modern diets.”  Nuts provide a variety of nutrients and can play an important role in the diet, especially for those who are eating a more plant-based diet.
