Reducing The Risk Of Heart Disease
Researchers have discovered the Polymeal -- a combined meal of seven food components that could reduce cardiovascular disease by more than 75 percent.

The Polymeal includes wine, fish, dark chocolate, fruits and vegetables, almonds and garlic, which are eaten on a daily basis (except four times a week only of fish). Researchers figured out how much each ingredient cuts heart disease individually and then worked out the combined effects of the components. Finally, they calculated the potential effect among Americans in an ongoing study.

Results of the diet were most dramatic for men, who were projected to live on average 6.6 years longer in total and nine years longer without heart disease compared to those not on the diet. Women, however, still had significant benefits. Women on the Polymeal will live five years longer and delay the onset of heart disease for eight years.

Thus researchers say Polymeal promises to be an effective, non-drug, safe and tasty way to increase life expectancy and reduce heart disease across the population.
