Scientific research has documented the many benefits of eating nuts, including pecans.
A large 30-year observation study published in the New England Journal of Medicine found an association between regular nut consumption and a decreased risk of mortality from all causes, including heart disease, compared to those who did not consume nuts.
The largest study of its kind, involving 76,464 women and 42,498 men, also found that regular nut-eaters weighed less than those who didn’t eat nuts – an association that should alleviate fears that nuts are fattening.
