Peanuts May Have Anti-Cancer Benefits for Children

A study found that girls who ate peanut butter regularly may have lower risks of breast cancer later in life.

A new study out of Harvard Medical School and Washington University School of Medicine, recently published in Breast Cancer Research and Treatment journal, found that girls between nine and 15 years of age who regularly consumed peanut butter or nuts were less likely to have benign breast disease––development of this disease increases risk of breast cancer. Girls who ate peanut butter or nuts at least twice per week during the study were 39-percent less likely to develop the benign disease than young females who did not eat peanut butter or nuts at all. “These findings suggest that peanut butter could help reduce the risk of breast cancer in women,” said Graham Colditz, senior author of the study and associate director for cancer prevention and control at Siteman Cancer Center.
