NHLBI Publishes New Heart Healthy Cookbook – 1
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. A healthy diet is a major factor in reducing the risk of heart disease. Janet de Jesus at the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute says studies show that heart health has a lot to do with diet.
De Jesus: Heart disease is the number one killer and overweight is one of the risk factors; and we hope that by teaching people how to eat heart-healthy, that they can improve their heart health. So a nutritious diet combined with regular physical activity can help improve one’s heart health.
Narrator: De Jesus points to studies, like the Framingham Heart Study, that have shown how a poor diet increases heart disease risk.
