    the strongest relations were found for increased intakes of oranges, orange juice, apples, pears, romaine or leaf lettuce, and walnuts.

   Senior author Francine Grodstein said that the simple message from this study is that eating an overall healthy diet,including certain foods, such as walnuts and other whole foods, may help women with the ability to do key everyday tasks as they age, like carrying groceries or dressing themselves.

Between 1992 and 2008, the women were asked questions about their physical function, including their ability    to perform basic activities of daily living.

“These results add to the large body of evidence that outline the many benefits of a healthy diet for women. Additional research is needed to better understand how diet and lifestyle choices can help maintain our health and well-being as we age,” said Dr Grodstein

Health benefits of walnuts :

    •  Nuts Reduce Risk of Death
           The  human study, which assessed the Mediterranean diet, found that eating  walnuts reduced cancer  mortality. And a study of 118,000 people by the Harvard School of  Public Health found people who ate a handful of   nuts every day were 20% less likely to die  from any cause over a 30-year period.
    •   Walnuts Help Control Weight
            In a Harvard Medical School study 20 men and women with metabolic syndrome participated  in a   randomized, double-blind, crossover study of walnut consumption. Everyone was fed a diet   of the same number of calories. But  for breakfast subjects consumed a shake containing eithe walnuts or a placebo. After just three days, those drinking   the walnut shake reported feeling more satisfied and less hungry.
    •   Walnuts Improve Thinking Ability
          In a crossover study researchers assigned 64 college students to eat walnuts or a placebo. After eight weeks they   found that walnut eaters had increased their inferential verbal reasoning abilities by 11.2%.Other studies show that   greater intake of high-antioxidant foods such as walnuts may increase “health span” and enhance cognitive and   motor function in aging.
  •   Walnuts Suppress Breast Cancer Tumors
        Animal studies show consuming walnuts significantly reduced the number and size of breast cancer tumors.         Researchers suggested that omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and phytosterols in walnuts are responsible for      the   benefits
