Association Between Plant-Based Diets And Lower Risk Of Heart Failure Found

Plant-based diets are linked with a lower threat of heart failure in adult individuals without known heart disease. At the same time, the Southern diets with more processed & fried foods and sweetened drinks are linked with higher risk, as per the study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. The latest study looked at the link between five dietary prototypes and threat of heart failure.

Heart failure impacts over 5.7 Million adult individuals. According to the reports, this number is estimated to rise. Presently, heart failure prevention plans emphasize on managing high blood pressure, quitting smoking, and maintaining a healthy diet & weight to avoid heart disease. However, the study is limited to dietary prototypes and incident heart failure in individuals without heart disease. In this study, researchers analyzed about five major dietary prototypes.

On a similar note, the Global Burden of Disease Study came into the news as it looked at dietary expenditure between 1990 and 2017. This study was carried out in about 195 countries. It was focused on about 15 types of nutrients or food. In a recent paper featured in the journal The Lancet, the study scientists concluded that, in 2017, owing to its contribution to noncommunicable diseases, poor diet led to 1 in 5, or 11 Million, adult demises.

The most of those demises, approximately 10 Million, were due to cardiovascular disease. The rest were largely from type 2 diabetes and cancer. If the countries are ranked from lowest to highest rates of diet-associated deaths, this rank puts Israel first. The country witnesses 89 deaths per 100,000 individuals. At the same time, in this list, Uzbekistan is on the last number with about 892 per 100,000 individuals. The U.S., with 171 demises per 100,000, rests in at a 43rd place.
