A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grain breads, nuts, olive oil, and canola oil (a type of rapeseed oil) can help you live longer, a new study has shown.

Results from a study published in the Journal of Internal Medicine show that those who ate an anti-inflammatory diet had an 18% lower risk of dying from any cause. The researchers also found that those who followed the diet carefully had a 20% lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease and 13% less chance of dying from cancer, compared to those who followed the diet to a lesser extent.

"Our analysis of the dose-response relationship has shown that even partial adherence to an anti-inflammatory diet can provide health benefits," says study lead author Joanna Kaluza of Warsaw University.

The study also found that smokers who followed this diet had advantages over smokers who did not follow the diet.

The study involved 68,273 Swedish citizens aged 45 to 83 years. The participants were followed for 16 years. During this period, 16 088 of them died, of which 5980 from diseases of the cardiovascular system and 5252 from cancer. At the same time, mortality among the participants who ate the most anti-inflammatory diet was significantly lower than among those who followed this diet to the least extent.

The anti-inflammatory potential of this diet was assessed using the Anti-Inflammatory Diet Specific Evaluation Index (AIDI), which includes 11 potential anti-inflammatory and five potential anti-inflammatory foods.

Anti-inflammatory foods include fruits and vegetables, tea, coffee, whole grain breads, breakfast cereals, low fat cheese, olive and canola oil, nuts, chocolate, moderate amounts of red wine and beer.

The list of inflammation-promoting foods includes unprocessed and processed red meat, organ meats, chips, and sugary drinks, according to the research team.
