New Study: Eating Vegetables 'Unlikely' to Protect Against Heart Disease

Eating vegetables may not be a sure way to prevent heart disease, a new study has found. Researchers from the University of Oxford who looked at data from nearly 400,000 people challenge previous research which suggests a higher vegetable intake could be linked to a lower risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Prior research may not have taken into account other lifestyle factors like meat intake, drinking alcohol and smoking, or socioeconomic factors like wealth, income and education. Despite the study's claims, researchers have stressed that eating a balanced diet and maintaining a healthy weight are the most important factors when it comes to reducing your risk of cardiovascular disease.
