vegetarian diet prevents and treats heart disease

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the world. But, the answer to the world’s biggest problem may be as simple as the food on your plate.

When researchers took a look at a pile of studies, what they found was nothing short of astounding!

They found that a vegetarian diet reduce your risk of coronary heart disease and of dying from cardiovascular disease. They found that, not only can a vegetarian diet prevent coronary heart disease, it can even reverse it. It prevents and treats heart failure, cerebrovascular disease and atherosclerosis, lowers cholesterol and blood pressure and reduces platelet aggregation.

That a vegetarian diet can do all these things is no longer surprising. What is striking about this review, though, is the incredible numbers it found for each of these conditions. Vegetarian diets

• reduce your risk of coronary heart disease by 40%

• reduce your risk of dying from cardiovascular disease by 40%

• reduce your risk of high blood pressure by 34%

• partially or completely open blocked arteries in 91% of people

These are shockingly impressive numbers that show that a vegetarian diet is an important way of helping you to a healthy heart.
