Interesting Health Study

March 5, 2009

Hello out there in food, beverage and hospitality land.  You’ll want to put down that Harvey’s burger when you hear this new study.

In a survey of 52 countries, it was reported that people who eat diets high in legumes, vegetables and whole grains are 30% less likely to suffer a heart attack.

Conversely, people who eat diets high in sugars and fats are 35% more likey to have a heart attack.

A number of schools throughout the province have began aggressively replacing fatty, salty cafeteria fare such as pop and chips with juice, vegetables and other healthier options.

In Vancouver, schools have hired a nutritionist to fill the snack void by introducing foods that are comprobable in taste but healthier, thus tempering the transition.

Oriental food is said to be excellent because it is flavourful and heavy on essentials such as soy and rice.

Vancouver is the fittest city in Canada, with a 10.9 per cent obesity rate.
