  1. Nuts are healthier in their raw form.  The reason is that over 15% of the healthy oils are lost in the roasting process.
  2. Studies show that people who eat nuts regularly live 2-3 years longer than those who don’t.
  3. The nut allergy is among the most common food allergies.
  4. Roasted nutshells were used as a coffee substitute during the civil war.
  5. Half of the world’s nuts are inedible or poisonous to humans.
