Are nuts the key to a longer life?

While it may not be an elixir to eternal youth, munching your way through a handful of nuts everyday could be the key to longevity.

A 30 year study following over 27 thousand people in the US found that those who noshed on nuts everyday were 20 per cent less likely to die from cancer and heart or respiratory disease. Those who ate nuts were also generally slimmer, more likely to exercise, eat more fruit and veg as well as take multi-vitamins. Nice work.
