The Associates Press is reporting that a study conducted in Salt Lake "found that people who skipped meals once a month were about 40 percent less likely to be diagnosed with clogged arteries than those who did not regularly fast."
Benjamin Horne, a heart disease researcher from Intermountain Medical Center and the University of Utah led the study.
"It might suggest these are people who just control eating habits better," and that this discipline extends to other areas of their lives that improves their health, Horne told the AP.
The research was partly funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.Horne says that this study is not proof that fasting is a great idea for everyone, but that it should be studied more.
Interesting, don't you think?
