Daily Fruit, Veggies May Cut Risk of Heart Disease Death
Date:1/19/2011

WEDNESDAY, Jan. 19 (HealthDay News) -- Along with all the other well-known reasons to eat more fruits and vegetables, new research indicates that doing so may reduce your risk of dying from heart disease.

Researchers analyzed data from more than 300,000 people from eight European countries, aged 40 to 85, who took part in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study and were followed for an average of nearly 8.5 years.

According to the study results, people who ate at least eight portions of fruit and vegetables a day were 22 percent less likely to die of ischemic heart disease than those who ate fewer than three portions a day. A portion was considered to be 80 grams, which would equal a small banana, a medium apple or a small carrot.

For each additional portion above the lowest intake of two portions, the risk of death from ischemic heart disease was reduced by 4 percent, the study authors noted.

"In other words, the risk of a fatal [ischemic heart disease event] for someone eating five portions of fruit and vegetables a day would be 4 percent lower compared to someone consuming four portions a day, and so on up to eight portions or more," first author Francesca Crowe, of the Cancer Epidemiology Unit at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom, said in a journal news release.

"The main message from this analysis is that . . . people who consume more fruits and vegetables have lower risk of dying from ischemic heart disease. However, we need to be cautious in our interpretation of the results bec
