Can Eating Habits Contribute To Heart Disease And Diabetes?

A new research study finds how better eating habits lower your risk of early death from heart disease, stroke, and type II diabetes.

This research reveals how the things we eat can impact our risks of dying from heart disease, stroke, or type 2 diabetes. The findings help to modify our eating habits to improve our health.

Health professionals already know that a healthy diet includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat dairy products. A healthy diet also incorporates lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts. And it limits sodium, trans and saturated fats, and added sugars.

Another research study evaluated how these ten dietary factors influence our risks of death from heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. The scientists relied on data from the national mortality data and CDC’s National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).

The researchers found that the risk of death from heart disease, stroke, or type 2 diabetes was higher among those whose diet included too much salt (sodium), processed meat, added sugar-sweetened beverages, and red meat. The risk of death was also higher for those who didn’t eat enough vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds, whole grains, omega-3 fats, or polyunsaturated fats.
