Brazil nuts can help women cut pancreatic cancer risk

A recent article in the British Journal of Cancer has highlighted that research in America has shown that women who eat a handful (8 grams or 28 ounces) of Brazil nuts, cashews, pecans and other popular nut varieties twice a week are less likely to develop pancreatic cancer. This research follows other research which shows that a diet rich in fish and nuts can also help to prevent pancreatic cancer in both men and women.
Tree nuts contain a range of vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals which are chemical compounds that occur naturally in plants and which  give plants their colour, smell and other physical qualities.
