A new study has concluded that “if you think that you’re obese, you are going to have a better chance of dying of heart disease,” the National Review reported.
Researchers found that people who eat “more than three servings of fruits and vegetables daily” have “lower risk of death and heart disease” than those who eat less than three portions per day.
The study was conducted by a team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
The researchers surveyed a random sample of 7,000 adults in the United States and found that those who ate “more fruits and veggies” had “lower risks of death, cardiovascular disease, and all-cause mortality than those with less than five servings of fruit and vegetables per day.”
But, the authors noted, it was not clear whether “eaters were consuming more or less calories than they consumed.”
The researchers noted that there is currently no “clear evidence of a clear diet-heart effect” in the U.S. There are currently 2.2 billion people in the world, with the majority living in the Western Hemisphere.
The number of Americans who are overweight or obese has risen from an estimated 13.4 million in 2000 to 16.2 million in 2013.
According to a recent study published in Health Affairs, the number of people with diabetes has increased by about 25 percent since the early 2000s.
Researchers at the Yale School of Medicine reported that the obesity epidemic is “now a national public health crisis, and the health impact is enormous.”
The report added that “more Americans have diabetes than are alive today.”
A report released by the U of S Department of Health and Human Services on Tuesday also found that the number and percentage of adults who have diabetes has risen dramatically in recent decades.
It said that the prevalence of type 2 diabetes has tripled since 1980.
The report also noted that the rate of obesity has also increased.
The U.N. has said that “a substantial number of children and adolescents are becoming overweight or obesity, and many others are at increased risk.”
The number and percent of adults with hypertension has also risen dramatically over the past several decades.
According a report from the University at Buffalo, “the U.K. has the highest prevalence of hypertension in the developed world, at 15.5 percent of adult males and 11.5 per cent of adult females, more than any other country.”
The U of A, meanwhile, has the lowest rate of hypertension.
The University of British Columbia reported that “the prevalence of high blood pressure in the UK has tripled in the past 40 years.”
The authors of the report said that this has caused an increase in “high-risk, high-payoff patients” and “high rates of morbidity and mortality.”
