5 things to cut out of your diet right now to reduce high blood pressure and lower the risk of heart failure - Marketwatch

A study of 4,500 people over 13 years and published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine comes to some surprising conclusions


You are what you don’t eat.

A diet that helps people reduce high blood pressure or hypertension may also reduce the risk of heart failure in people under the age of 75, according to research published in the latest edition of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, and led by doctors at Wake Forest School of Medicine, which is part of Wake Forest Baptist Health in Winston-Salem, N.C.

An observational study of more than 4,500 people over 13 years showed that those individuals under 75 who most closely adhered to the Dash diet had a significantly lower risk of developing heart failure than those who were least likely to keep to the tenets of the diet. (Dash is an acronym for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension.)
