Consuming Plant-based Food Decrease The Risk Of Heart Disease

In  a recent research, it has been discovered that eating plant-based foods decrease the risk of heart disease.The population size used for the data and results were on just over 12,100 men and women who had taken part in a study called ‘Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities.’

During the research, they revealed the size portions of their meals and what they typically eat and drink in a day. None of the participants within the age range of  45 - 64 years old, had reported signs of heart disease when taking part in the study.

Starting in 1987, partcipants who were being studied were later found out by the researchers that those with plant-based food plans, had a 16% less risk of having heart issues. They also had a 32% less chance of dying from a cardiovascular-related problem.

The researchers based these diets on those who consumed 4.1 to 4.8 servings of fruit and vegetables on a daily basis.

Results from our study suggest that progressively increasing the intake of plant foods and subsequently reducing the intake of animal foods is associated with benefits on cardiovascular health and mortality risk, Study authors, via report.

The study can be found in the ‘Journal of the American Heart Association.’

  • Fiber and Sterols for Your Heart It's best to get your daily dose from your diet, but supplements are another option. There's good evidence that blond psyllium husk -- common in fiber supplements -- can lower “bad” LDL cholesterol. It can also raise the “good” kind, HDL.

    It's not yet clear if taking vitamins can reduce your risk of developing heart disease or having a heart attack. But, what is known is that no vitamin can prevent the development of heart disease if you don't control your other risk factors, such as a poor diet, smoking, high cholesterol and diabetes.

  • I think plant based food are more important due to the absence of fat in plants..Animal based food contain fats that can accumulate when you consume them and fats begin to block the vital organs..

  • Consuming plant-based foods are best foods for good health. This is why our fore fathers lived longer; checking the rate of diseases caused by what we consume nowadays. Our fore fathers consumed natural foods more, but we consume more of can foods, which are mostly preserved by some chemicals (preservatives) to enable them stay longer. These chemicals can in turn give problems to our health, causing heart diseases and many other diseases too.
