International Healthcare News: Diet 'important in reducing CVD risk'

Expatriates keen to reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) might want to take a closer look at their diet.

According to recent comments from Linda Main, dietetic advisor for HEART UK – The Cholesterol Charity, it has been known for some time that "a healthy diet is important in reducing the risk of coronary heart disease and other circulatory problems".

She added that increasing fruit and vegetable intake is likely to lower the overall risk of CVD.

This is because of the beneficial nutrients they contain, but also due to the fact that they do not contain saturated fats and tend to replace portions of foods that do.

The comments follow the publication of a European study, which investigated the links between diet and disease and confirmed that people who consume more fruit and vegetables have a lower risk of dying from ischaemic heart disease.
