The cereal aisle at the local grocery store is filled with products claiming “heart healthy” and “proven to lower cholesterol”. These claims are based upon the cholesterol lowering effects of dietary fiber, which is a combination of both soluble and insoluble fiber. Both are part of a healthy diet. But might one be better than the other?
Antioxidant vitamins have long been supported for their potential role in the prevention and protection from the development of coronary heart disease(CHD) and with good reason. However, large-scale randomized studies have been lacking and perhaps findings so far have only been indicative of an association between a healthy lifestyle and diet. The Heart Protection Study examined the potential benefit of antioxidant vitamins in the prevention of CHD. The results may be surprising.
Can emotional stress really cause heart attacks or even worse, lead to death? Researchers from the Psychophysiological Investigations of Myocardial Ischemia (PIMI) study set out to examine that very question. Previous research has demonstrated a greater than 2-fold increase in subsequent cardiac events, such as heart attack, in patients who suffer from heart dysfunction in the setting of mental stress. However, no studies had demonstrated an increased risk of death. The current study examines this association and puts further scientific evidence behind this long held assumption.
We’ve all heard about the high fat, low carbohydrate or conversely the very low fat diets. How about high protein? But what really is a heart smart eating style? Examine the many different eating styles now being promoted in the popular press and you may come to some important conclusions about your own dietary needs and habits. Make a good choice toward heart healthy living.
