Ac­cord­ing to a new study pub­lished in the In­ter­na­tional Jour­nal of Epi­demi­ol­ogy, eat­ing peanuts can help re­duce mor­tal­ity rates; while peanut but­ter does not. A strong link was made be­tween peanut in­take and re­duc­ing risk of mor­tal­ity by an av­er­age of 10 months for both men and women suf­fer­ing of res­pi­ra­tory dis­ease, neu­rode­gen­er­a­tive dis­ease and di­a­betes. The rec­om­mended dose of nut in­take is around 15 grams av­er­age per day. How­ever, spec­u­la­tion jus­ti­fies that the trans-fatty acids found in peanut but­ter may in­hibit the pro­tec­tive [nu­tri­tional value] ef­fects of peanuts.
