Peanut is a legume crop that belongs to the family of Fabaceae, genus Arachis, and botanically named as Arachis hypogaea. Peanuts are consumed in many forms such as boiled peanuts, peanut oil, peanut butter, roasted peanuts, and added peanut meal in snack food, energy bars and candies. Peanuts are considered as a vital source of nutrients. Nutrition plays an important role in growth and energy gain of living organisms. Peanuts are rich in calories and contain many nutrients, minerals… Expand

Health benefits of nuts: potential role of antioxidants
TLDR
Extended analysis of an earlier report on nut intake and death attributed to various diseases in the Iowa Women's Health Study observed that the hazard ratio for total death rates showed a U-shaped association with nut/peanut butter consumption and it was hypothesized that many different antioxidants may also be needed for the proper protection of animal cells.
