Can't live without your wok? You may be surprised to learn that an Asian diet doesn't prevent heart attacks. But don't worry: your stir fry also won't cause a heart attack. According to a study of dietary patterns in 52 countries reported in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association, if you really want to decrease your chances of having a heart attack, you need to eat more fruits, veggies and legumes. "Researchers said that while some components of the Oriental [diet] may be protective, others such as the higher sodium content of soy sauces, may increase cardiovascular risk, neutralizing any relationship." The message is, just being a vegetarian isn't enough. You need to load up on the green stuff, and watch the sodium. Do you already do this, or do you often fill up on bread, pasta, and rice?
