Cardiovascular Disease Prevention

Introduction
Many deaths in the world today are attributed to cardiovascular diseases. In the United Kingdom alone, stroke and cardiovascular diseases combined claim the lives of more than 150,000 people every year. The disease is attributed to unhealthy diet policies. A continued intake of dairy products including meat and processed foods increases the cardiovascular disease mortality rate by twice as much as when compared to the people who consume a more sensible diet. It is therefore advisable to take foods that are fibrous, rich in potassium, and contain antioxidants. Other foods that have proven to prevent cardiovascular-related diseases are whole grains, nuts, and aquatic foods such as fish. Polyunsaturated fats and unsaturated fats are healthy as well.
