A new study published in the journal PLoS One by researchers of Loma Linda University, in California, found once more that tree nuts and peanuts appear to have a strong inverse association with obesity and metabolic syndrome (MetS). 

The study was conducted on clinical, dietary, anthropometric and demographic data of 803 adults. MetS was defined according to the American Heart Association and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute diagnostic criteria. The study compared the low/high ingestion of tree nuts combined with low/high ingestion of peanuts. Both ingestion of tree nuts and peanuts were inversely associated with obesity and metabolic syndrome. More information here
