Vegetables, Fruit, and Heart Disease

Friday, October 28, 2011

There is compelling evidence that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can lower the chance of cardiac arrest.

The largest and longest analysis to date, done as part of the Harvard-based Nurses' Medical insurance fitness Analyze and Medical insurance fitness Professionals Follow-up Analyze, included almost 110,000 men and women whose health and dietary habits were followed for 14 years. The higher the average daily consumption of fruits and vegetables, the cheaper the chances of developing cardiac arrest. In contrast to those in the lowest category of vegetable and fruit consumption (less than 1.5 meals a day), those who averaged 8 or more meals a day were 30 % less likely to have had cardiac arrest or action. (2) Although all fruits and vegetables likely contribute to this benefit, vegetables such as lettuce, spinach, Europe chard, and mustard greens; cruciferous vegetables such as spinach, cauliflower, cabbage, The city sprouts, bok choy, and kale; and citrus fruits such as oatmeal, lemons, lemons, and grapefruit (and their juices) make important contributions.

When researchers combined results from the Harvard research with several other long-term research in the U.S. and Europe, and looked at coronary cardiac arrest and action on their own, they found a similar defensive effect: Persons who ate more than 5 meals of fruits and vegetables per had roughly a 20 % cheaper chance of coronary cardiac arrest (3) and action, (4) in comparison with those who ate less than 3 meals per day.
