According to a recent study published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, teenagers that eat a high-fiber diet that is rich in nutrients are far less susceptible to developing heart disease and type-2 diabetes later in life.
The study was conducted by Michigan State University and followed 2,100 individuals between the ages of 12 and 19. It was found that students with high levels of fiber had much less of a chance of high blood pressure, cholesterol or elevated levels of fat and sugar in their blood, according to FoodProductDesign.com.
“High-fiber, nutrient-dense foods are packed with heart-healthy vitamins, minerals and chemicals that can positively affect many cardiovascular risk factors. It may be better to focus on including these foods than to focus, as is commonly done, on excluding foods high in saturated fat,” Joseph Carlon, a dietician and associate professor at MSU, told the news source.
