Multiple Myeloma Therapy- Nuts, Peanuts for Heart, Nerve, MM

The reduction in mortality was strongest for respiratory disease, neurodegenerative disease, and diabetes,  followed by cancer (multiple myeloma!) and cardiovascular diseases.

Mixed Nuts and Peanuts as multiple myeloma therapy? Really? Aren’t you overstating the benefits of nuts just a bit???

Well, no, I’m not. multiple myeloma (MM) survivors as well as chronic disease patients focus on their daily nutrition, well, daily. And if you or someone you know works at their diet for health reasons then you know that “eating right” each and every day isn’t easy.

Therefore the reason why I say “ Mixed Nuts and Peanuts as a multiple myeloma therapy” is because the studies linked below cites “15 grams (half a handful) a day” lowers your risk of

  • mortality due to cancer,
  • diabetes,
  • respiratory, and
  • neurodegenerative diseases.”

Daily Mixed Nuts are a therapy no-brainer in my opinion.

I am a long-term multiple myeloma survivor who suffers from nerve damage and cardiomyopathy. The studies below may as well be talking about me. I eat nuts daily. I’m not saying that nuts cure MM, I’m saying that nuts contribute to our nutritional needs as MM survivors.

Protein, fiber and magnesium are to key ingredients in Mixed Nuts /peanuts that my our bodies need.

Thank you,

Multiple Myeloma Diet

Foods You Should Eat- The right kinds of foods in your diet can give you the best balance of nutrients and help with your symptoms or the side effects of treatment…

Fiber. If you have constipation from chemotherapy, you may want to boost the fiber in your diet. It helps your body break down food and clear out your bowels. Water and prune juice will also help keep things moving. Good sources of fiber include:

  • Dried fruits like figs and prunes
  • Whole grains
  • Oatmeal and other cereals
  • Nuts and beans

Nuts, peanuts, but not peanut butter, may protect against death from cancer, heart disease, respiratory disease, and other major causes

Summary:A study confirms a link between peanut and nut intake and lower mortality rates, but finds no protective effect for peanut butter. Men and women who eat at least 10 grams of nuts or peanuts per day have a lower risk of dying from several major causes of death than people who don’t consume nuts or peanuts…

The reduction in mortality was strongest for respiratory disease, neurodegenerative disease, and diabetes, followed by cancer and cardiovascular diseases. The effects are equal in men and women…

The associations between nuts and peanut intake and cardiovascular death confirm earlier results from American and Asian studies that were often focused on cardiovascular diseases. However, in this new study, it was found that mortality due to cancer, diabetes, respiratory, and neurodegenerative diseases was also lowered among users of peanuts and nuts

“It was remarkable that substantially lower mortality was already observed at consumption levels of 15 grams of nuts or peanuts on average per day (half a handful). A higher intake was not associated with further reduction in mortality risk

Peanuts and tree nuts both contain various compounds such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids, various vitamins, fiber, antioxidants, and other bioactive compounds, that possibly contribute to the lower death rates…”
