DASH Diet May Help Stave off Heart Failure
by Todd Neale
Excerpt from article:
"The so-called DASH diet for lowering blood pressure may also reduce the risk of heart failure in women, an observational study showed."
"Among a cohort of Swedish women, those whose diets were most like the DASH recommendations had a 51% lower rate of heart failure than those whose intake was least like the DASH diet, according to Emily Levitan, Sc.D., of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, and colleagues."
