Hindustan Times (Gurugram) - City - - LIFESTYLE -

Ad­her­ing to a diet rich in fruits, veg­eta­bles, whole grain bread, nuts, and canola oil may help you live longer, a new study has found. The find­ings sug­gest that those who fol­low an an­ti­in­flam­ma­tory diet have 18% lower risk of all-cause mor­tal­ity. Those who closely fol­lowed the diet ex­pe­ri­ence saw a 20% lower risk of car­dio­vas­cu­lar mor­tal­ity and a 13% lower risk of can­cer mor­tal­ity, when com­pared with those who fol­lowed the diet to a lesser de­gree.

Anti-in­flam­ma­tory foods in­clude tea, cof­fee, whole grain bread, low-fat cheese, olive oil and canola oil, nuts, choco­late, and mod­er­ate amounts of red wine and beer. Smok­ers who fol­lowed the diet saw greater ben­e­fits when com­pared with smok­ers who did not fol­low the diet.
