Does eating pecans make you less likely to get cancer? How many do I need to eat?

In brief: No effect

If this were true, we would all be on a pecan diet.
This was probably a marketing trick by the pecan growers and distributors. Pecans and other nuts may have some health benefits but do not prevent cancer.
