(ORDO NEWS) — It is enough just to change the diet to a more balanced one to increase life expectancy. This is the conclusion scientists from the University of Bergen (Norway). The results of the study are published in the journal PLOS Medicine.
Norwegian experts analyzed data from another large study called “Global Burden of Disease”, which involved several thousand young men and women. Scientists have evaluated the impact of some dietary changes on people’s health and life expectancy.
A steady shift from a Western diet that includes fatty and salty foods, red meat, processed foods and sweets to a healthy diet high in legumes, fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains and nuts could prolong life by an average of 10 years.
At the same time, it is necessary to switch to nutrition with healthy food as soon as possible, writes Reedus.
“Understanding the beneficial potential of various foods will allow people to achieve significant improvements in their health, which in turn will help increase life expectancy,” said Lars Fajanse, head of the research team.

The specialist drew attention to the fact that sweet potato contains soluble and insoluble fiber, which is useful for the gastrointestinal tract. Its use strengthens the intestinal microflora.
