The Food and Drug Administration has agreed that eating pecans and some other nuts regularly "may reduce the risk of heart disease." FDA approved the first ever qualified health claim for a food in July 2003. The claim states, "Scientific evidence suggests but does not prove that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease."
