Eat Legumes; Live Longer

Those that eat legumes live longest reports a study by the National Aging Research Institute in Melbourne, Australia.

"There is a 7% - 8% reduction in mortality hazard ratio for every 20g increase in daily legume intake"

The study showed that legume consumption is the most protective dietary predictor of survival regardless of their ethnicity.

Legumes have long been associated with good health, and are a staple among vegetarians and vegans. Legumes include soy, tofu, natto, miso, brown beans, peas, lentils, chickpeas, white beans among others.

To your best health!
