Eat greens for a healthy heart

If you want to reduce your risk of a heart attack step up your vegetable intake. The magic ingredient is folic acid, a B vitamin. In a Canadian study looking at more than 5,000 men and women over the age of 15, those with low levels of folic acid were more likely to experience a fatal heart attack. It has been known that eating folic acid during pregnancy helps prevent spina bifida, anaemia and skin and digestive orders in babies. However, this is the first time it has been found to prevent heart disease. Its though that folic acid helps the body process an amino acid called homocysteine, which otherwise causes thickening of the arteries. The best source of folic acid are dark green vegetables, liver, kidney, nuts, wholemeal bread and whole grain breakfast cereals.
