Reduce the risk of heart attack, eat broccoli and cabbage; Researchers

Researchers said excessive intake of crucible vegetables such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage is related to reduce the risk of heart disease or stroke.

Blood vessel disease is a condition that affects our blood vessels (arteries and veins) and can reduce the flow of blood around the body. This decrease in blood flow may be due to the buildup of fatty on the internal walls of our blood vessels, such as the aorta. This fatty build, calcium deposits is the major cause of heart attack or stroke.

"In our previous studies, we identified that over-consumption of these vegetables reduced the risk of clinical heart disease such as heart attack or stroke, but we were not convinced," author Lauren Blenkenhorst of Western Australia.

"Our findings from this new study provide insight into possible mechanisms involved," Blenkenhorst said.

For the study published in The British Journal of Nutrition ', the research team used data from a peer of 684 older Western Australian women.

Researchers found that diets with more cruciferous vegetables were less likely to cause extensive buildup of calcium in their aorta, a major marker for structural blood vessel disease.

"We have now found that older women who consume high amounts of crucified vegetables every day are less likely to have extensive calcification on their aorta," she said.

Blakekanhurst explained, "The element rich in cruciferous vegetables is vitamin K, which may be involved in stopping the calcification process in our blood vessels."

Women in this study who consumed more than 45 grams of crucifixed vegetables per day were 46 percent less likely to have an extensive buildup of calcium in their aorta compared to those who consumed less of a crucified vegetable every day Huh. (IANS)
