fruit and vegetable consumption reduce the effects of heart disease gene


Eating fruits and vegetables known to have many health benefits. Apparently there are other benefits that can stop the effects of genes that affect heart attack.On the basis of the study indicate that the risk of disease and heart attacks increases if the person has the gene 9p21 in his body. These genes are usually inherited from the parent or previous derivatives.
A person is usually considered to be factors that are difficult to dimodifkasi gene. But it turns out by eating vegetables and fruits one can reduce the risk of heart disease despite having genes.
This result is a surprise that a healthy diet can significantly weaken the influence of genes on 9p21 risk of heart disease, \ "said Dr. Jamie Engert from McGill University in Canada, as quoted from Mirror.co.uk, Friday
The results of this study are reported in the journal PLoS Medicine found that the effects of high-risk gene can be reduced with high dietary intake of 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables. The study involved 27,000 people who have the gene 9p21 and is derived from five ethnic groups, namely Europe, South Asia, China, Latin America and the Arabs to see the effects of consumption of fruits and vegetables in the 9p21 gene. The results obtained are participants with the 9p21 gene that eating vegetables and fruits have the same heart attack risk with low risk people or with people who do not have the gene. Even so researchers will conduct further studies to determine how the interactions that occur between the 9p21 gene with vegetables and fruits consumed in reducing the risk of heart disease.
