Scientists of the American Heart Association have named a product that reduces the risk of heart attack.
According to experts, olive oil can help reduce the risk of heart disease. The study included 63,867 women and 35,512 men from 1990 to 2014. Every four years, they filled out questionnaires in which they answered questions about their diet and lifestyle.
The researchers found that those who ate more than half a tablespoon of olive oil each day had a 15 percent lower risk of cardiovascular disease and a 21 percent lower risk of coronary heart disease. At the same time, consuming more olive oil had no effect on stroke risk.
In February 2020, cardiologists at the University Hospital of Lausanne in Switzerland reported that a day’s sleep twice a week could help reduce the risk of a heart attack by 48 percent. For example, those participants in the experiment who slept during the day every day had an increased, rather than decreased, risk of heart attack. Those who got a daytime nap twice a week thereby reduced their risk of heart attack, and the length of time they slept was not decisive in their case.
