Eating lots of fiber may help heart attack survivors to live longer
A new study has revealed that a higher intake of cereal fiber in heart attack survivors may improve long-term survival rates.
According to researchers, people who survive heart attacks have a greater chance of living longer if they increase their dietary intake of fibre - and eating lots of cereal fibre is especially beneficial.
The scientists said that those who ate most fibre had a 25 percent lower chance of dying in the nine years after their heart attack, as compared to those who ate least fibre.
The study also found that every 10g per day increase in fibre intake was associated with a 15% lower risk of dying over the nine-year follow-up period.
It was revealed that high dietary fibre intake can improve blood lipid levels and reduce the risk of high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes while a low-fibre diet is associated with an increased risk of colorectal cancer.
