Research has looked at what the risks of Heart Attack are for people who take in different levels of anti-oxidants in their diets.


The researchers from the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, Massassuchetts, the Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden, and from the University of Alabama , Birmingham, looked at data from the Swedish Mammography Cohort.

They identified individual intakes of antioxidants in 33,713 women (aged 49-83 years) from the 1997 data and followed their health history – looking at heart failure up until December 2009.

The research, published in the American Journal of Medicine, concluded that a diet high in antioxidants may help prevent heart failure.
