High-fiber diet helps prevent heart diseases

Research supports the idea that high fiber diets help to fight against the cardiovascular disease risk and may also result in longer and healthier lives. High fiber diets are a good way to keep your heart healthy and a shift towards this diet means a completely new lifestyle which must be adopted by the young as well as the middle aged. According to a recent study, adults who had a high fiber intake in their daily lives had a lower chance of developing any cardiovascular disease as compared to those who had no fibre rich diets. This study proves to be quite helpful and will help people make changes in their unhealthy eating habits and also this is the first study of its kind which studies the impact of high fiber intake.

“It’s long been known that high fiber diets can help people lose weight, lower cholesterol and improve hypertension,” said Donald M. Lloyd-Jones, corresponding author of the study. “The results of this study make a lot of sense because weight, cholesterol and hypertension are major determinants of your long-term risk for cardiovascular disease.” The American Heart Association recommends an intake of 25 grams of dietary fiber or more a day and it is important to understand that this amount of fibre must be taken from whole foods instead of unhealthy processed foods. According to Donald M. Lloyd-Jones, “A processed food may be high in fiber, but it also tends to be pretty high in sodium and likely higher in calories than an apple, for example, which provides the same amount of fiber."

The study was led by author Hongyan Ning who managed to study data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, a nationally representative sample of about 11,000 adults. “The results are pretty amazing,” Ning said. “Younger (20 to 39 years) and middle-aged (40 to 59 years) adults with the highest fiber intake, compared to those with the lowest fiber intake, showed a statistically significant lower lifetime risk for cardiovascular disease.”

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
