There’s good news for peanut butter fans. Researchers tracked 9000 women from 1996-2010 and found that those who ate peanut butter or nuts twice a week or more when aged 9 to 15 were 39 per cent less likely to have developed benign breast disease – while non-cancerous it increases your risk of developing breast cancer later – than those who skipped the nuts. So thank your mum for dishing up peanut butter toast or slipping a peanut butter sandwich in your school lunchbox.  Cheers Mum.

Results also showed some evidence that noshing on beans, lentils, soybeans and corn may also prevent the growth of the disease.
