Eating more vegetables helps prevent heart disease
To test the effectiveness of plant-rich diets, scientists conduct randomized controlled trials (RCTs).
This is considered the gold standard in scientific research.
As a result, a diet rich in greens can reduce risk factors for heart disease such as low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (bad cholesterol, the cause of atherosclerotic conditions, myocardial infarction, stroke).
In particular, eating more vegetables and fruits can help the body reduce inflammation, reduce LDL, increase HDL (good cholesterol), prevent heart disease, reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus, maintain healthy arteries and veins, reduce blood pressure, improve blood sugar levels.
According to a report published in the US National Library of Medicine, a plant-rich diet is effective in preventing and treating heart failure.
