21,454 male participants enrolled in the U.S. Physicians’ Health Study, followed for an average of 17 years. Most dramatic relationship between survival with any food was nut consumption.

Compared with men who rarely or never consumed nuts, those who consumed nuts 2 or more times per week had a 47% lower risk (nearly half the risk) of sudden cardiac death and a 30% lower risk of total coronary heart disease death. (70% of risk for total coronary heart disease).

Nuts and seeds had anti-arrhythmic and anti-seizure effect associated with 60% reduction in sudden cardiac death.

This pattern of benefit on coronary heart disease end points suggests that at least part of the effect of nut consumption on sudden cardiac death may be due to a reduction in fatal ventricular arrhythmias. "consumption of nuts powerfully reduces the chance of having a life-threatening cardiac arrhythmia called ventricular fibrillation or ventricular tachycardia. (People who have heart disease do not always die of heart attacks; they die of an irregular heartbeat that prevents the heart from pumping properly.) Removing nuts and seeds from one’s diet may actually increase the risk of one of these fatal rhythm disturbances."

frequency of nut consumption has been found to be inversely related to all-cause mortality in several population groups such as whites, blacks, and the elderly. Thus, nut consumption may not only offer protection against IHD, but also increase longevity. In a large, prospective epidemiologic study of Seventh-day Adventists in California, we found that frequency of nut consumption had a substantial and highly significant inverse association with risk of myocardial infarction and death from IHD. The Iowa Women's Health Study also documented an association between nut consumption and decreased risk of IHD.

"The use of a low-fat, vegetarian diet in patients with NIDDM was associated with significant reductions in fasting serum glucose concentration and body weight in the absence of recommendations for exercise."

Coronary disease could be prevented, arrested, or even reversed by maintaining total serum cholesterol levels below 150 mg/dL. (Dean Ornish also showed that CVD can be reversed. ) "This is the longest study of minimal fat nutrition used in combination with cholesterol-lowering drugs conducted to date, and our finding of a mean decrease of arterial stenosis [blockage] of 7.0% is greater than any reports in previous research." The ones who dropped out of the program had 10 new coronary events.
