High fibre diet can improve long term survival in heart attack patients
High fibre diet can improve long term survival in heart attack patients (April 30, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Boston - A new report published in the BMJ finds that a high fibre diet can help heart attack survivors live longer. Researchers studied over 120,000 women and 51,000 men taking part in two long term studies. Researchers then examined those who survived a first heart attack, following participants for an average of nearly 9 years after their attack. Results showed that those who ate the most fibre had 25% lower risk of dying from any cause during the study period when compared to those who ate the least fibre.
