Meat is one of the causes of high blood pressure.

Vegetarians also have reduced blood viscosity. Previously, scientists have already expressed this assumption, but we’re not sure, writes Medical News Today. Experts from Osaka decided to prove everything by analyzing studies on the relationship between a vegetarian diet and blood pressure.

Data from 7 clinical studies with 311 participants and 32 observational studies with 21604 participants were taken into account. A vegetarian diet was understood as a complete rejection of meat or its extremely rare consumption. However, the diet included dairy products, eggs, and fish. And he was one hundred percent associated with reduced blood pressure.

In terms of systolic blood pressure, the vegetarians were 4.8 millimeters lower in the clinical study than the controls and 6.9 millimeters lower in the observational studies. Diastolic pressure was 2.2 and 4.7 mm lower, respectively. The effect could be compared to a reduction in the amount of salt in the diet or a weight loss of 5 kilograms.

A 5-millimeter reduction in systolic pressure results in a 9% reduction in the risk of death from coronary heart disease and a 14% reduction in the risk of death from stroke. What is the secret of vegetarianism, scientists do not know. Perhaps vegetarians have a lower weight and risk of obesity. Their diet is high in fiber, low in fat, high in potassium, and low in salt, with almost no alcohol, and no saturated fat. But a lot of polyunsaturated fatty acids.

Vegetarians also have reduced blood viscosity.
