If you could take a magic pill that caused absolutely no side effects and cut your risk of suffering stroke and heart attack in half, wouldn’t you take it?
How about if there was one small, delicious snack that had the same effects?
You can find this snack in every supermarket, and you probably already have it in your kitchen. Isn’t it worth saving your life?
And just to set the record straight, this snack was proven more effective than any cholesterol or blood pressure medication in a recent study recently conducted by Oxford University.
Mom was right all along! Fruits and fresh, leafy vegetables are good for you.
And it took a study spanning seven years conducted on half a million people to prove Mom right. Researchers studied 451,681 people with no history of cardiovascular disease at the outset of the study period.
The participants were divided into five groups based on their fruit-eating habits: Daily, 4–6 days a week, 1–3 days per week, monthly, and never. Around 18 percent of the participants ate fruit every day, while at the other end of the spectrum, around 6.3 percent of participants never ate fruit at all.
Over the course of 7 years, 19,300 heart attack events and 19,689 cases of stroke were recorded.
Those who ate fruits daily had a 15% lower risk of developing cardiovascular disease overall in comparison with those who ate no fruit at all.
But when it came to stroke risk, the numbers were stunning. Those who ate fruits daily were 40% less likely to suffer a stroke than those who never or seldom ate fruit.
Better still, people who ate fruits regularly also had blood pressure readings 3 points lower than those who avoided fruit.
Citrus fruits were discovered to be the options that offered the maximum health benefits. So, make sure to snack on some delicious oranges, mandarins, grapefruit, or other citrus.
Another study conducted by University College London revealed that eating seven portions of fresh fruit and vegetables daily can reduce the risks of death by all causes by up to 42 percent.
If you aren’t convinced already, this is the time to make fruits and vegetables an essential part of your diet. Next time you’re hungry, push away that bag of chips and take a piece of fruit instead.
