Fasting May Lower Risk For Heart Disease

Fasting for one day each month may lower your risk for heart disease.

That's from researchers who noticed Mormons who refrain from eating at the beginning of every month generally have healthier hearts.

They first thought it was because Mormons don't smoke, but research pointed to fasting instead.

The study found those who skipped meals once every 30 days were 40 percent less likely to suffer clogged arteries.
