      On 84,000 women years follow-up survey, Harvard School of Public Health researchers found that eating more nuts or peanut butter, can significantly reduce the risk of type II diabetes. Although the respondents were female, but the researchers believe, the conclusion may also apply for men.

     Researchers are aged between 34 years to 59 years for women over 16 years of investigation. In the beginning of the investigation, they do not have any diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and a history of cancer and other diseases, but there are about 3,200 people during the investigation suffering from type II diabetes. Type II diabetes, also known as adult-onset diabetes, mainly by the relative lack of insulin or can not be used effectively caused, most patients in 35 to 40 years after the onset. Generally considered high-fat obesity and food will increase the risk of type II diabetes. Survey results show that: Those five times a week or more, every time you eat a dried fruit women, the risk of type II diabetes risk, compared with little or never ate nuts who want a low around 30%; 5 times a week or more, eat at least one tablespoon each peanut butter, but also make women reduce the incidence of type II diabetes by about 20%.

In this regard, the researchers believe, in spite of people's minds, nuts are high-fat foods, but they contain mostly unsaturated fat, fat on the body's insulin sensitivity can play a useful role, and nuts are rich in fiber and proteins can also promote the body's insulin and glucose balance. But the researchers also cautioned that the new findings are not meant to eat as long as patients with diabetes and other dried fruits and peanut butter on the line. Dried fruits in the diet used to replace other health benefits less food, is a better choice. Their results will be 27 officially published in the "Journal of the American Medical Association" on.
