They identified individual intakes of antioxidants in 33,713 women (aged 49-83 years) from the 1997 data and followed their health history – looking at heart failure up until December 2009.

The research, published in the American Journal of Medicine, concluded that a diet high in antioxidants may help prevent heart failure.
