Research Brief

Study suggests walnuts are bridge to better health as we age

University of Minnesota School of Public Health (SPH) researchers who reviewed data from the CARDIA study, including 20 years of diet history and 30 years of physical and clinical measurements, have found participants who ate walnuts early on in life showed a greater likelihood for being more physically active, having a higher quality diet and experiencing a better heart disease risk profile as they aged into middle adulthood.
