7 Simple Steps To Lower Risk Of Cardiovascular Disease

7 Simple Steps To Lower Risk Of Cardiovascular Disease The American Heart Association recently developed the "Life's simple 7," which is a set of factors one can follow to help keep their cardiovascular health in check.

Eating nuts at least twice a week is associated with a 17% lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease , according to research presented today at ESC This study examined the association between nut consumption and the risk of cardiovascular disease and death in the Iranian population.

It's been debated for years: Are eggs good or bad for you? People who eat an added three or four eggs a week -- or the equivalent of an additional 300 mg of dietary cholesterol -- have a higher risk of both heart disease and early death compared to those who eat fewer eggs, new research finds.

New research has found that eating nuts at least twice a week appears to help lower the risk of death from cardiovascular disease.

Carried out by researchers at the Isfahan Cardiovascular Research Institute, Iran, the new study set out to investigate the possible association between eating nuts and the risk of cardiovascular disease and death in the Iranian population.

A total of 5,432 adults aged 35 and older with no history of cardiovascular disease were recruited from the study.

Egg Cholesterol Increases Risk Of Heart Disease, Death

Egg Cholesterol Increases Risk Of Heart Disease, Death Too much eggs can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, per a new study.

Eating a handful of nuts twice a week can slash the risk of heart disease by almost a quarter Her large-scale analysis showed a consistent link between the quantities of nuts consumed and Those who ate five or more servings of nuts a week had a 14 percent lower risk of cardiovascular disease

Eating nuts two or more times per week was associated with a 17% lower risk of cardiovascular mortality compared to consuming nuts once every two weeks . The connection was robust even after adjusting for factors that could influence the relationship such as age, sex, education, smoking

Participants were randomly selected from urban and rural areas of the Isfahan, Arak and Najafabad counties and their intake of nuts -- including walnuts, almonds, pistachios, hazelnuts, and seeds -- was measured using a food frequency questionnaire.

The researchers then followed the participants to record the rates of cardiovascular events and death, including coronary heart disease, stroke, total cardiovascular disease, death from any cause, and death from cardiovascular disease.

The findings, presented on Saturday at the ESC (European Society of Cardiology) Congress 2019 together with the World Congress of Cardiology, showed that consuming nuts two or more times per week is associated with a 17 percent lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease, when compared to eating nuts once every two weeks.

Pear shaped women are healthier than apple shaped women, study finds

Pear shaped women are healthier than apple shaped women, study finds Not all fat is equal -- where it sits on the body matters to your health. Higher "trunk fat" in women was linked to an increased incidence of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), while more leg fat predicted lower risk, a new study finds.

Eating nuts has been linked with lower risk of heart disease . Researchers did not find that any individual nut stood out in terms of heart health, but frequency and amount did. For example, eating just one serving of walnuts (14 halves, or 28 grams) daily, five times per week , was associated with a

Eating a handful of nuts at least twice a week could cut the risk of dying from heart disease by almost a fifth, research has found. Experts said they were a good source of unsaturated fat, containing polyphenols which help to prevent heart attacks and strokes.

The results also still held true even after taking into account potentially influencing factors such as age, sex, education, smoking, and physical activity.

"Nuts are a good source of unsaturated fat and contain little saturated fat," said study author Dr. Noushin Mohammadifard. "They also have protein, minerals, vitamins, fiber, phytosterols, and polyphenols which benefit heart health. European and US studies have related nuts with cardiovascular protection but there is limited evidence from the Eastern Mediterranean Region."

According to ESC guidelines, consuming 30 grams of unsalted nuts per day is part of a healthy diet, although the guidelines do note that the energy density (the amount of calories) of nuts is high.

"Raw fresh nuts are the healthiest," added Dr. Mohammadifard. "Nuts should be fresh because unsaturated fats can become oxidized in stale nuts, making them harmful. You can tell if nuts are rancid by their paint-like smell and bitter or sour taste."

Paleo Diet Linked to High Levels of Harmful Gut Bacteria

Paleo Diet Linked to High Levels of Harmful Gut Bacteria Cutting carbs in favor of the “caveman” style of eating may have hidden dangers to your heart health. New research published in the European Journal of Nutrition found that people who follow the Paleo way of eating—lots of meat, vegetables and nuts while avoiding grains, legumes, and dairy—have nearly double the levels of a blood biomarker linked to heart disease than those who follow a typical diet. A low intake of whole grains may be responsible, since they tend to suppress the kind of bacteria in the gut that produces the biomarker.

Eating nuts at least twice a week can slash the risk of death from cardiovascular disease by almost 17 per cent, a new study suggests. “They also have protein, minerals, vitamins, fibre, phytosterol, and polyphenols which benefit heart health. European and US studies have related nuts with

Eating nuts at least twice a week is associated with a 17% lower risk of death from cardiovascular disease , according to research The specific outcomes investigated were coronary heart disease , stroke, total cardiovascular disease , death from any cause, and death from cardiovascular disease .
