What are the dietary choices driving heart disease in Australia?

Too much red meat for women and not enough wholegrains for men are some of the biggest diet-related contributors to heart disease in Australia, according to Australian researchers. The team from Deakin University used data from a global disease burden study from 1990 to 2019 to estimate how much death and disability could be attributed to different known dietary risk factors for heart disease. They say over the 30-year period there was a decline in heart disease deaths and disability related to dietary choices in both men and women, with different dietary choices continuing to impact heart risk differently depending on gender. The smallest dietary contributor to heart disease was a high salt diet for women and diets high in processed meats for men, they say.
