Increased fiber diet tied to decreased fatal heart attack

Posted on Wednesday, May 21st, 2014 at 10:45 am by Williams Hart    

Researchers suggest that people with heart attack history who consumed high-fiber foods have a lower risk of dying in the event of another heart attack, an article by Reuters stated on May 6.

After studying at least 2,258 women and 1,840 men, researchers found that deadly heart attacks declined by 15 percent for every 10 grams of fiber consumed. Head author and epidemiologist Shanshan Li of Harvard School of Public Health stressed that diet is a great factor in the development of heart-related problems. Consuming high-fiber grains lessened the death risk by 28 percent. Researchers advised women to consume at least 25 grams of high-fiber food everyday while men should consume 38 grams.

Unfortunately, heart attacks are also linked to women who took Yasmin and Yaz contraceptives. If you or someone you know has been injured by this birth control drug, the legal team of Williams Hart may fight for you. We may possibly help you recover your loss by seeking damages from negligent drug makers. Call us today at 800-761-3187 to understand your options.
