Pistachios have four times the total antioxidant capacity of cashews as well as more flavonoids, which have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects and may lower your risk for cancer and heart disease -- 18 milligrams per 100 grams of pistachios compared with 1.99 milligrams per 100 grams in cashews -- according to an article published in the "Asia Pacific Journal of Clinical Nutrition" in 2010.
