Eating a handful of nuts 3 times a week can reduce the risk of developing an irregular heartbeat

A large study has found that people who regularly eat a small quantity of nuts could have a lower risk of developing irregular heartbeat, a major cause of stroke.

The research showed that eating nuts at least three times a week was associated with an 18% reduced risk of atrial fibrillation, a heart condition often felt as an irregular heartbeat.

Another finding in the study was that moderate (one- to-two times per week) - but not high consumption - was associated with a lower risk of heart failure.
