Vegetables reduce inflammation and prevent heart disease
Alongside longevity, heart disease reduction and cancer protection, vegetables also lower inflammation.
Chronic inflammation is linked to many preventable modern lifestyle diseases, particularly cardiovascular diseases, so anything that safely and consistently lowers inflammation, is an important weapon against sickness and early death.
“Our group and others have found that consumption of fruits and vegetables, particularly cruciferous vegetables, was associated with lower total mortality and cardiovascular disease mortality.”
Dr. Gong Yang, senior author of the study and a researcher at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, March 2014
This new research on 1000 Chinese women has found regular consumption of cruciferous vegetables like kale, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, bok choy and cabbage, lowered inflammation in the body, thereby lowering risk for heart disease and cancer.
