Go nuts and live healthy longer

Go nuts and live healthy longer

Go nuts if you want to live a healthy long life.  A single serving of nuts could help you extend your healthy life by a whole 26 minutes.

Eating a hot dog, however, could cost you 36 minutes of healthy life.

Field grown fruits and vegetables, legumes nuts and low environmental impact seafood will all contribute to a longer healthy life.

High processed meat and greenhouse-grown vegetables will steal your health minutes.

The study at the University of Michigan  found that substituting 10pc of your intake from beef and processed meats to a mix of the good food could allow you to gain 48 minutes of health per day.   It could also reduced your dietary carbon footprint by one third.

The researchers classified foods into three colours – green, yellow and red – based on their combined nutritional and environmental performances.  They looked at more than 5,800 foods to rank them in the different groups.

They also ranked them in terms of healthy life minutes gained or lost on a scale of  -74 to +80 minutes.

The results were published in the journal Nature Food.
