Walnuts may do wonders for women

Posted:
(AP) -- Women who add walnuts to their diet as a healthy snack may also be lowering their risk for breast cancer.
A study done in mice at Marshall University finds those fed the human equivalent of two ounces of walnuts per day had fewer breast tumors compared to those not given walnuts.
The tumors were also smaller, and did not develop as quickly as those found in mice not given the nuts.
Experts believe the omega-three fatty acids found in walnuts contribute to the decreased risk.
