In a new study, researchers have established that eating large quantities of nuts, seeds, and plant oils cut the risk of early death.

The meta-analysis, published in the British Medical Journal, found that plants rich in omega-3, such as soybeans and flaxseeds, had particularly strong protective effects against cardiovascular disease.

The team determined that a higher intake of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which equates to around 1.6 grams a day, could cut the risk of all-cause mortality by 10 percent, compared to those who ate smaller amounts.

ALA is the most common essential polyunsaturated fatty acid available in plant sources.
