Cashews are a healthy fat source because of the MUFAs monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs that contain oleic acid) and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAS mostly in the form of linoleic acid) have a positive effect on metabolism and other bioactive functions, many studies associate cashew consumption (and nut consumption in general) with a reduced risk for coronary heart disease, cancer, diabetes and obesity. http://www.fao.org/docrep/005/ac451e/ac451e0b.htm
