- •Dose–response relationship was assessed by restricted cubic spline.
- •Highest versus lowest nut intake was associated with the decreased risk of CAD.
- •Linear dose–response relationship was found between nut consumption and CAD risk.
- •The risk of CAD decreased by 5% for every 1 serving/week increase intake of nut.
