According to a new study from the Connecticut State University and the Jackson Laboratory of genomic medicine, it is found that eating walnuts can reduce the risk of colon cancer.

The researchers found that mice fed a walnut (total calorie 7-10.5%) have a smaller incidence of colon cancer.

Daily intake of walnuts to get the total heat of the 7-10.5% is equivalent to one person per day to eat an ounce of walnuts.

"Our study show, for the first time, intake of walnut or can reduce the incidence of colon tumors," principal investigator of the study of Daniel W. Rosenberg says, "more and more evidence shows that intake of walnut can be beneficial to body health, such as the occurrence of cancer prevention. This study suggests that walnuts can also be beneficial to the health of the colon as well as probiotics, which in turn can avoid the occurrence of colon cancer."

The polyunsaturated fatty acids contained in walnuts are much more common than any of the other nuts. In addition, walnut also contains a lot of vitamin E.

"But the walnut is not only a simple sum of these components, it can be as a whole food, play against colon cancer the most significant role, and colon cancer is the third most common cancer," Kim Krieger said, "other studies have shown that intake of walnut can prevent some diet and lifestyle related diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, and nervous system diseases."
