5. Protect yourself from colon cancer

Colorectal cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in the United States, and researchers agree that diet plays a heavy role in prevention. Research found that women who ate peanuts at least 2 times per week were 58% less likely to get colon cancer. Men who ate peanuts were found to be 27% less likely. Folic acid and other cancer-fighting nutrients in peanuts are thought to be the reason for the decrease.
