Health Tip

A high fiber diet can help people lower their risk of having a heart attack, and now a study indicates people who eat a high fiber diet after a heart attack are more likely to survive.

At the Harvard School of Public Health, Shanshan Li and her colleges saw signs of this in data on 2,258 women and 1,840 men who had survived a heart attack. On average, they were tracked for around nine years. Li says the benefit was higher among people who ate more fiber.

“Greater intake of dietary fiber after heart attack was associated with lower risk of dying.’’

Li says the chief benefit came from cereal fiber.
