Health benefits of Nuts
Nuts contain the antioxidants quercetin and campferol which may suppress the growth of cancers. Brazil nut contains 80 micrograms of selenium, which is important for those with prostate cancer.
Many people are allergic to the proteins in nuts, so if you have any symptoms such as itchy mouth, tight throat, wheezing, etc. after eating nuts, stop. Instead, consider taking a selenium supplement or work with someone on how to eliminate this allergy.
