There’s an old joke of course that begins, “bean, beans, good for you heart. . . .” (The joke aside, beans probably are good for your heart, what with the fiber, etc.) However I don’t want to talk about beans right now. I want to talk about fruit.
This article says that apples, pears, and red wine may reduce the risk of heart disease in post-menopausal women. It goes on to say that, “Women of all ages are encouraged to consume more fruit and vegetables.” This study did not deal with men, but I am sure they could benefit from more fruit and vegetables as well.
