The article focuses on a study presented during the American Medical Association meeting by the Executive Committee on Diet and Heart Disease proving that healthy eating habit could prolong the lives of most men with coronary-artery disease. It claims that most of the men in the study have lost weight, reduced cholesterol levels and cut down on smoking. However, it notes that a bigger study was urged to set up due to less numbers involved to determine that the diets alone were really protective.
