Peanut butter is a delicious snack, but here's another incentive to dig into a jar of crunchy.

New research indicates that older girls who regularly eat peanut butter, nuts, and other sources of vegetable protein and fat may reduce their risk of developing benign breast disease (BBD) by as much as 39 percent, according to Yahoo Shine.

The site reports the findings are based on data collected from over 9,000 girls and young women who participated in Growing Up Today, a long-term research study led by Harvard Medical School and Brigham Women’s Hospital.
