Of course raw nuts are best and ideally nuts should be soaked before eating. This improves their digestibility and can also improve the taste. Recent research claims that eating nuts regularly can actually extend life expectancy! The study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Participants were asked about their nut consumption at the beginning of the study and then every couple of years. Deaths during the study were also monitored. The researchers found that eating nuts was associated with a reduced risk of death from any cause during the study, and that the more frequently nuts were eaten, the lower the risk of death, and eating 28g of nuts seven or more times per week was associated with a 20% reduced risk of death. Eating nuts has also been found to assist with weight loss.
