Going vegan or vegetarian could help you live longer, according to a series of studies done over the course of past few years.
Scientists say a plant-based diet may help to reduce the risk of deadly heart failure. According to a study of five different kinds of diet, people who eat a lot of fruit and vegetables are 42 per cent less likely to develop the condition than those who consumed fewer plant-based foods.
Most recently scientists from Icahn School of Medicine in New York recruited 15,569 participants for the diet study and monitored their health for four years.
They studied five different diet types:
1.Convenience - red meats, pastas, fried potatoes, fast foods
2.Plant-based - dark leafy vegetables, fruits, beans, fish
3.Sweets - desserts, breads, sweet breakfast foods, chocolate, candy
4.Southern - eggs, fried food, organ meats, processed meat, sugar-sweetened drinks
5.Alcohol/salads - salad dressings, green leafy vegetables, tomatoes, butter, wine.
The researchers found that the participants who followed the plant-based diet had the strongest association with a lower risk of incident heart failure when adjusted for age, sex and race of the participants and for other risk factors.
