New York: Men suffering from prostate cancer may significantly reduce their risk of mortality by consuming nuts like almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, pistachios and walnuts, new research suggests.

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed and second most lethal cancer for men. “Prostate cancer should be considered seriously as more men are prone to such diseases,” said lead researcher Ying Bao from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, US. The findings showed that people who consume nuts five or more times in a week had a 34 per cent decreased risk of mortality due to prostate cancer in comparison to those who consumed nuts less than once per month.
