Beta-Carotene Protects against heart attack
In a study reported in the july issue of the Journal of nutrition, researchers from Harvard University and the University of Costa Rica reported that the intake of fruits and vegetables rich in beta-carotene was inversely associated with the risk of heart attack. High levels of beta-carotene in adipose tissue and diet of people who had experienced a heart attack. The results suggested that beta-carotene protects against heart attack or is a marker of some protective factor in foods containing beta-carotene.
