Just adding veggies to a meat-heavy diet won’t prevent heart attacks. A healthy diet would not include meat, cheese, and other animal products in your diet.

Eating a few more or fewer servings of vegetables won’t reduce your heart disease risk, according to a study published in Frontiers of Nutrition. Using data from the UK Biobank, researchers found no benefit at all to adding servings of cooked vegetables to a meaty diet. Raw vegetables did seem to reduce heart risks slightly. But the take-home lesson is that to really cut risks, it pays to dump the meat, cheese, and other unhealthy foods, not just add a serving of vegetables on the side.
