Non-Vegetarians are at a Higher Risk of Attaining Heart Disease, Study Reveals
In a recent study released by a British researcher, it has been proved that in comparison to non vegetarians, vegetarians are at a lower risk of attaining heart diseases. The study clearly states that meat can prove to be dangerous for health.
Published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, this study involves 44,561 people and their records have been taken from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC)-Oxford Study that was carried out in England and Scotland in 1993.
Among the participants, 34% were vegetarians. For carrying out the research, researchers analyzed and compared different types of diets and what impact do they lay on overall health of individuals.
As said by Dr. William Abraham, who directs the division of cardiovascular medicine at Ohio State University, "It's a very good study. It's further evidence that vegetarian diets are associated with a lesser risk of developing ischemic heart disease or coronary artery disease".
The study never highlights the goods that vegetarian diet consists of for preventing heart risks but it brings into notice the levels of saturated fat and sodium present in non vegetarian foods that causes health problems.
Saturated fat and sodium, both are strong reasons for increasing blood pressure and cholesterol levels. And therefore, these are known to be the high risk factors for ischemic heart disease.
