Eating Veggies & Fish May Lower Heart Disease


Bhubaneswar: Following a vegan diet and consuming fish, seafood may help to reduce heart disease.

The study, published in the American Journal of Physiology-Heart and Circulatory Physiology, researchers analysed the effect of TMAO on rats, which have a genetic tendency to develop high blood pressure.

Intake of fish, seafood and vegetarian food increases levels of a compound called trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO), known to boost heart health, said researchers from the Medical University of Warsaw in Poland.

A fish-rich and vegetarian diet are associated with a significantly higher plasma TMAO than red meat-and egg-rich diets, considered to increase the cardiovascular risk, the researchers noted.
