The article discusses the nutritional value of nuts. Nuts usually contain 160 to 200 calories and 14 to 19 grams of fat per ounce, which is mostly heart-healthy monounsaturated fat and polyunsaturated fat. Walnuts are rich in omega-3 fat which may help ease arthritis and protect against heart disease, cancer, strokes, Alzheimer's disease and other diseases. Nuts contain nutrients and phytochemicals that may protect against chronic diseases like heart disease and cancer.
