The Incredible Health Benefits Of Eating Raw Nuts! Fights Cancer, Obesity, Diabetes And More!
Eating a handful of raw nuts every week should form part of every cancer survivor’s diet. Nuts—and especially tree nuts such as almonds, brazil nuts, cashew nuts, hazelnuts, chestnuts and walnuts—reduce the chances of the cancer coming back.
People eating 58 grams or more of raw nuts every week reduce the risk of cancer recurring by 42 per cent, and lower their chances of dying from the cancer by 57 per cent.
That is an incredible statistic, and would be called a ‘blockbuster drug’ by the Pharmaceutical industry, if they could even achieve half that rate.
It’s effective even for people who have been treated for stage III cancer, say researchers from the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, who looked at the survival rates and diets of 826 patients who had completed treatment for colon cancer.
The average survival rate for colon cancer dramatically in patients who were regularly eating nuts.
Anthony William, the Medical Medium, has long touted the immense benefits of eating cashews; he says they are “high in protein and are a rich source of vitamin B-complex and essential minerals such as iron, selenium, zinc, and copper. They are also packed with anti-cancer compounds called proanthocyanidins that have the ability to starve tumors and stop cancer cells from dividing.”
It’s interesting to note, however, that these benefits weren’t seen by people eating peanuts or peanut butter. Only tree nuts had the protective effect, possibly because the peanut is actually a legume, the researchers surmise. Beyond that, they admit they don’t understand the mechanism in the tree nut that fights cancer.
Nuts also help overcome or control a range of health issues, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, and insulin resistance. Most vitally, they also reduce the chances of developing cancer in the first place—and now they seem to reduce the odds of cancer coming back. So, if you aren’t allergic to nuts, make sure you start incorporating them into your diet now. Organic, of course.
