Eating Fruits and Vegetables Lower Risk of Death from Heart Disease. A new large scale study, examining the diet and health of hundreds of thousands of people, has shown that a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is linked to a lower risk of dying from a common form of heart disease. Although a healthy diet may correlate with other behaviors or lifestyle factors that cause the reduction in heart disease deaths, doctors say that increasing the amount of fruit and veggies we consume is essential to good health. Fruit and vegetable intake reduces risk of fatal coronary heart disease.

Molecular Biology Provides Clues to Health Benefits of Olive Oil. Health conscious consumers have long known that virgin olive oil is a good choice when it comes to preparing meals and dipping breads. Now, a team of researchers has found that phenolic components in olive oil actually modify genes that are involved in the inflammatory response. The researchers concluded that the results shed light on a molecular basis for reduced heart disease risk among people living in Mediterranean countries where virgin olive oil is the main source of dietary fats. Gene expression changes in mononuclear cells in patients with metabolic syndrome after acute intake of phenol-rich virgin olive oil.
