The scientists compared the situation after applying many diet variants and concluded that every 10g per day increase in fiber intake was linked with a 15 percent lower risk dying over the nine-year follow-up period. The group that consumed the most fiber had a 25 percent lower chance of dying from any cause during the nine years considered as reference. This study revealed at the same time that soluble fibers modestly lower LDL cholesterol. This is an important, life saving discovery, which will help a lot of people. “Future research on lifestyle changes post-heart attack should focus on a combination of lifestyle changes and how they may further reduce mortality rates beyond what is achievable by medical management alone”, the authors of the study said. During the coming years the results can be refined considering some other factors with the capability to prolonge the life of cardiac patients.
