It’s a whole new way to look at that peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Girls, who eat peanut butter, may improve their breast health later in life.

Researchers discovered girls between 9 and 15 who frequently consume peanut butter or nuts, were nearly 40 percent less likely to have benign breast disease by their 30's.

Benign breast disease is noncancerous. But it can raise the risk of breast cancer later in life.

The results were based on medical histories of more than 9 thousand U.S. girls.

Study authors say the findings suggest peanut butter may help reduce the risk of breast cancer in women.

But further research is needed.
