Nearly half of all deaths from heart disease, stroke and diabetes in the United States are associated with diets that skimp on certain foods and nutrients, such as vegetables, and exceed optimal levels of others, like salt, a new study finds.
Using available studies and clinical trials, researchers identified 10 dietary factors with the strongest evidence of a protective or harmful association with death due to “cardiometabolic” disease.
“It wasn’t just too much ‘bad’ in the American diet; it’s also not enough ‘good,‘” said lead author Renata Micha. “Americans are not eating enough fruits, vegetables, nuts/seeds, whole grains, vegetable oils or fish,” she said.
Micha is an assistant research professor at the Tufts University School of Nutrition Science and Policy in Boston.
An improper nutrition consisting of an excess in processed food, or fast food, consumption can result in a variety of health complications. New evidence has demonstrated that poor diet is often associated with heart disease and diabetes. For more information, please feel free to ask Dr. Jimenez or contact us at (915) 850-0900.
