Study: Eat Legumes, Live Longer

Eating legumes has benefits, you live longer! This, according to a study from the National Ageing Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia that followed a cross-cultural section of the elderly (over 70) to reveal the longevity benefits of eating beans, lentils, tofu, soy, peas, miso, and nuts.

PubMed, National Library of Medicine: "Legumes: the most important dietary predictor of survival in older people of different ethnicities."

"Nutrition plays an important role in the maintenance and improvement of human life expectancy. ... There is a 7% - 8% reduction in mortality hazard ratio for every 20g increase in daily legume intake. Conclusions: This longitudinal study shows that a higher legume intake is the most protective dietary predictor of survival amongst the elderly, regardless of their ethnicity."
