Heart healthy diet and myocardial infarction and venous thromboembolism.
In the study to investigate the association of a heart healthy diet on risk of myocardial infarction (MI) and venous thromboembolism (VTE)., showed that High intake of fish, fruit, vegetables and polyunsatured fat had a 23% reduced risk of MI (HR 0.77; 95%CI: 0.60-0.98), but no association with VTE (HR 0.95; 95%CI: 0.64-1.40). A heart healthy diet showed an even more favourable association with MI in obese subjects (HR: 0.62; 95%CI: 0.41-0.95), but not with VTE. Our findings suggest that a heart healthy dietary pattern is associated with moderately reduced risk of MI, but not related to risk of VTE(1).
