Daily fresh fruit consumption decreases your risk of death from heart attack by 40%
Consuming fresh fruit every day can significantly lower your risk of heart disease, including
heart attacks and death. A study conducted at Oxford University and published in the New
England Journal of Medicine recently revealed the results of a 4 year study of over 500,000
Chinese adults. This landmark study demonstrated that daily fresh fruit consumption decreased
risk of heart disease, including death from heart attacks, by up to 40% (when compared to
people who do not have fresh fruit daily). This was true regardless of a person’s age, sex, level
of education, income, degree of physical activity, fresh vegetable intake, smoker status, alcohol
intake, weight, blood pressure, or blood sugar level. This demonstrates just how important it is
to have fresh fruits every single day.
