A comparative risk assessment model has estimated that 45.4% of all cardiometabolic (heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes) deaths in U.S. adults was associated with suboptimal consumption of the following specific dietary factors:
- High sodium intake (9.5%).
- Low consumption of nuts and seeds (8.5%).
- High consumption of processed meats (8.2%).
- Low omega-3 fatty acids (7.8%).
- Low vegetable intake 7.6%).
- Low fruit intake (7.5%).
- High intake of sugar-sweetened beverages (7.4%).
LifeTip: Optimizing the consumption of the items above could reduce the risk of premature cardiometabolic deaths significantly. Watch “Reverse Heart Disease Naturally” with Dr. David DeRose for more recommendations.
