According to new research, the lack of entry to nearby shops selling fresh foods can increase the risk of developing symptoms residents early heart disease.
Moreover, the study was published in the journal Circulation that says, greater access to healthy foods could promote healthier eating and, in turn, decrease the formation of coronary plaque.
Adjunct Professor at Grand Valley State University, explains Jeffrey Wing “Lack of health food stores may help explain why people of these neighborhoods have more heart disease.”
Previous studies have formed the limited amount of fresh food options and numerous fast food restaurants in the poorest neighborhoods were linked to unhealthy diets and have an increased risk of early atherosclerosis (a disease that hardens the arteries and are composed of many heart-related diseases).
a study of 5,950 adults and researchers saw limited access to recreational facilities, health food stores and stalls access, the ability to walk through the neighborhood and surrounding social may help was made the early stages of the disease, atherosclerosis.
Participants underwent a CT scan to determine the amount of atherosclerosis in their arteries. 86 percent had readings of calcium in the coronary arteries at three different times, with an average of 3.5 years between measurements of study participants.
Apparently, the results suggest that restricting access to health food stores for the heart is the common thread in the fastest progression of coronary atherosclerosis in middle-aged and older.
She July Who is the assistant professor at the University of Michigan explains, “We found that health food stores within a mile of his house was the only significant factor that reduces or slowed progression of calcium buildup in the coronary arteries. Our results point to the need for greater awareness of the potential health threat posed by the lack of healthy food choices in certain neighborhoods. ”
