Food myth: Nuts are as bad as junk food.

Healthy eating: Nuts are excellent sources of protein and other nutrients, as long as you keep servings to a handful. Harvard researchers found that women who ate that amount about five times a week were 20 percent less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than those who didn’t eat them as often. Additionally, several large studies have found that a regular intake of nuts protects against heart disease.
