ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A new report out shows a new way that peanuts reduces heart disease.

A Penn State study, funded by the Peanut Institute, revealed how the protein compounds in peanuts protect the arteries of overweight men from hardening after eating a very high fat meal.

Peanuts were also found to expand the blood flow, which keeps the heart from working hard.
