Cardiometabolic Health: Protective vs Harmful Foods/Nutrients

8 out of the 20 top risk factors are dietary and 4 others are strongly diet-related. That accounts for 60% 12 out of 20 of the top risk factors of Disability-Adjusted Life Years (i.e. years of life lost to ill health, disability or early death). The Nutrition and Chronic Diseases Expert Group identified 11 foods/nutrients that had a protective effect and 6 foods/nutrients with a harmful effect on cardiometabolic risk (stroke, coronary heart disease, cardiovascular disease and diabetes). Protective effect: ❇️ fruits (excluding juices) ❇️ vegetables (excluding juices and starchy vegetables) ❇️ beans/legumes ❇️ nuts/seeds ❇️ whole grains ❇️ fish ❇️ yoghurt ❇️ fibre ❇️ seafood
