Dietary fiber has been found to reduce the risk of high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes in a study presented at the American College of Cardiology Middle East Conference 2019.
Heart disease, which was once an illness affecting adults, is now a major concern among children.

A study performed in Brazil by researchers from São Paulo State University suggests that overweight and obese adolescents have similar increased risks of developing heart disorders. The results of cardiovascular fitness tests with volunteers aged 10-17 were similar in both groups.
Plant-based diets are associated with a lower risk of heart failure in adults without known heart disease, while Southern diets consisting of more fried and processed foods and sweetened drinks are associated with greater risk, according to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology that looked at the association between five dietary patterns and risk of heart failure.
A new study appearing in the journal CHEST, published by Elsevier, may change the way we think about sleep disorders.
