In the News: 30-Year Study Finds Eating Two Servings of Avocados a Week Linked to Lower Risk of Cardiovascular Disease
Who’s this for:
- for anybody interested in natural heart health.
- for anybody interested in plant-based diets.
- for anybody interested in better heart health.
What are some points I should focus on?
The large study found that “Higher avocado intake was associated with lower risk of CVD and coronary heart disease…”
The study found that “replacing half a serving/day of margarine, butter, egg, yogurt, cheese, or processed meats with the equivalent amount of avocado was associated with a 16% to 22% lower risk of CVD.”
In plain English: a sensible amount of avocado in your diet can help with better heart health.
What should I do next?
This study is not your free pass to eat all the avocados you want! You still want to limit the amount you eat to about 2 servings per week.
The next steps: take this free heart health risk estimator test. It’s from the American College of Cardiology.
Take the test and share the results with your doctor.
