American Heart Association reports Healthy diet may help prevent recurrent Heart Attacks, Strokes

 

The benefits of eating right were in addition to those from taking preventive drugs, even in countries with varying economic levels.

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – If you have cardiovascular disease , a heart-healthy diet may help protect you from recurrent heart attacks and strokes, according to new research in the American Heart Association journal Circulation.

“At times, patients don’t think they need to follow a healthy diet since their medications have already lowered their blood pressure and cholesterol — that is wrong,” said Mahshid Dehghan, Ph.D., study author and a nutritionist at the Population Health Research Institute, McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. “Dietary modification has benefits in addition to those seen with aspirin, angiotensin modulators, lipid-lowering agents and beta blockers.”
