London, Sep 14 (IANS) Adhering to a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grain bread, nuts, olive oil and canola oil may help you live longer, a new study has found.

The findings, published in the Journal of Internal Medicine, suggest that those who closely follow an anti-inflammatory diet have an 18 per cent lower risk of all-cause mortality.

The researchers also found that those who follow the diet experience a 20 per cent lower risk of cardiovascular mortality, and a 13 per cent lower risk of cancer mortality, when compared with those who followed the diet to a lesser degree.

"Our dose-response analysis showed that even partial adherence to the anti-inflammatory diet may provide a health benefit," said lead author Joanna Kaluza, Associate Professor at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences in Poland.

It was also found that smokers who followed the diet experienced even greater benefits when compared with smokers who did not follow the diet, the team said.

For the study, the research team involved 68,273 Swedish men and women aged between 45 and 83 years. The participants were followed for 16 years.

The anti-inflammatory potential of the diet was estimated using the validated anti-inflammatory diet index (AIDI), which includes 11 potential anti-inflammatory and five potential pro-inflammatory foods.

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

Pro-inflammatory foods include unprocessed and processed red meat, organ meats, chips, and soft-drink beverages, the team said.

Arvind Kejriwal announces ex-gratia of Rs 1 crore to family of Shaheed BSF

Arvind Kejriwal announces ex-gratia of Rs 1 crore to family of Shaheed BSF

Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party convenor Arvind Kejriwal visited the family of martyr Narendra Singh in Delhi on Friday. After meeting the family he talked to media and said that he will call a cabinet meeting and modify a rule on providing ex-gratia to the martyrs’ family, as it has flaws. The policy will be changed in a way so that the family of Narendra Singh could get benefits of this policy.

"Narendra Singh has been living in Delhi for the last 8 to 10 years. Delhi government policy has a policy to offer ex-gratia of Rs 1 crore to the aggrieved family. The policy has a flaw that says, only the martyrs’ who have the address of Delhi will be given benefits of Rs 1 crore. However, there are a lot of families who migrate and come to Delhi and make their establishment here only for their living," said Delhi CM Kejriwal.

Narendra Singh had joined his job in 1988. At that time, his permanent address was Haryana. Later he moved on with his family and shifted to Delhi.  Kejriwal also aimed at Prime Minister Modi over the issues with Pakistan.

“Why does Prime Minister not do anything? Before holding the seat of Prime Minister, he used to say that writing love letters won’t help in dealing with Pakistan. Pakistan needs to be dealt their way, so why does PM Modi not dealing them their way? If love letters won’t help, even cutting cakes on their birthdays won’t bring any solution to the issues prevailing. How long will our soldiers have to suffer? We want action,” said Arvind Kejriwal.
