EAT-Lancet Diet Reduces Risk for Heart Attacks

Following the EAT-Lancet diet, made up of mostly plant-based foods, reduces the risk for heart attacks by up to 20%, according to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Those who closely followed the diet, which is high in vegetables and avoids meat and dairy, had fewer coronary events than those who did not closely follow the diet.
