A recent research shows that people who take a moderate amount of intake of fats and carbohydrates become healthy. This research caters more than 135, 000 people across five different continents. The moderate amount of fruits, vegetables, intake of fat, and avoidance of high carbohydrates lower down the risk of death.

The research elaborates the moderate manner which lower the risk of death was of those people who intake three to four servings (total of 375 to 500 grams) of fruits, vegetables, and peas a day. This amount of diet of the prescribed things gives amazing health benefits to the people of this study.

This study unveils another fact also and that is about the famous belief that intake of higher amount of fat is linked with lower risk of death as compared to lower consumptions. And the amount of higher amount of fat is not more than 35 percent of energy. And the high amount of carbohydrates containing diet is linked to high mortality but not with the risk of cardiovascular diseases. And the high amount of energy is more than 60 percent.

The above two facts or messages of the two reports published in “The Lancet”. And these facts are getting through the global study which is done by the researchers at the Population Health Research Institute (PHRI) of McMaster University and Hamilton Health Sciences in Hamilton, Canada. These reports are also presented today at the Congress of the European Society of Cardiology in Barcelona, Spain.

The researchers asked people about their dietary intake and they are followed by the researchers for an average of seven and half years.

The lead author of the study and an investigator at PHRI Miss. Mahshid Dehghan, “ A decrease in fat intake automatically led to an increase in carbohydrate consumption and our findings may explain why certain population such as South Asians, who do not consume much fat but consume a lot of carbohydrates, have higher mortality rates.”
