In a study published in the National Library of Health, an in-depth look was undertaken to determine what is the healthiest diet when it comes to longevity including what to eat and what to avoid.
“There is much controversy surrounding the optimal diet for cardiovascular (CV) health and overall health,” began the study.
It continued: “Poor quality diets are high in refined grains and added sugars, salt, unhealthy fats and animal-source foods; and low in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes, fish and nuts.
“They are often high in processed food products – typically packaged and often ready to consume – and light on whole foods and freshly-prepared dishes.
“In addition, fruit and vegetable intake has remained inadequate.”
