Global Study of Foods That Improve Health

A study conducted by researchers at McMaster University and Hamilton Health Sciences has found that not consuming enough of six key foods together is linked to a higher risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in adults. The study emphasizes the importance of including fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, fish, and whole-fat dairy products in one’s diet to reduce the risk of CVD, including heart attacks and strokes. Unlike previous research, which focused on Western diets combining processed foods with nutrient-dense options, this study examined a global population and highlighted foods typically considered healthy. The researchers analyzed data from 245,000 individuals in 80 countries and derived a diet score from the study. The PURE Healthy Diet Score recommended moderate consumption of natural foods, including fish, whole-fat dairy, unprocessed meats, and whole grains.
