In a rare nature of events, Tsimane Tribe from Amazon has offered its insights which can help prevent dangerous cardiovascular diseases which are significantly plagued out in the regions where people suffer with it greatly. According to a research published in a journal, titled as The Lancet, it has been concluded that out of 9 in 10 Tsimane tribal people, possess zero threat from any heart disease.
The study was led by a study researcher named as Gregory Thomas, who works in Long Beach Memorial medical center based in California. Thomas wrapped up the study by saying that the health of a Tsimane Tribe of 70 years of age is equivalent to the health of an American of 50 years of age which is pretty impressive.
Tsimane People lead a primitive life: Having adopted a simplified life, Tsimane are majorly involved in hunts of games which involves monkeys, manioc roots, piranhas, grow rice, forage fruits and nuts, corn, plantains. Another reason that directs to the fact of brilliant heart health of Tsimane is their pre-modern lifestyle which excludes all sorts of junk food distractions.
In a study recorded by NCBI, in 2003, researchers claimed that “Atherosclerosis was common in four preindustrial populations including preagricultural hunter-gatherers” and further cited: “The presence of atherosclerosis in pre-modern human beings raises the possibility of a more basic predisposition to the disease.”
The Tsimane Diet: The Tsimane diet consists of only 14 percent protein, 72 percent carbohydrate and 14 percent fat which is way better than the typical American diet. Researchers claimed that the Tsimane people follow a very high in fiber diet and take simple sugar along with saturated fat. They are also involved in plenty of physical activities which makes them immune to heart diseases.
