A new study finds eating more vegetables may help lower your blood pressure. The new findings were published Monday in the scientific journal "Jama Internal Medicine." Participants following a vegetarian diet saw a significant dip in blood pressure, compared to their omnivore counterparts. The study looked at strict vegetarian diets as well as those that include fish and eggs. Experts point to a number of factor for the possible correlation: vegetarian dites are often lower in sodium and saturated fats. And because vegetables are less energy dense than other foods, you can eat more of them for fewer calories. Nearly a third of American adults have a high blood pressure known as hypertension which increases the risk of heart attack and stroke.
