In today's Health Matters, Eating a diet rich in fruit and vegetables may weaken a risk for heart disease that's in your genes.

Canadian researchers studied more than 27,000 people with a gene variant leaving them at a higher risk of heart disease.

They found those who ate a healthy diet composed mainly of raw vegetables nearly negated the effect of the genetic mutation. Study authors say their findings show there may be a stronger link between diet and heart health than originally thought.

Further research is needed to verify the findings. The study appears in the Journal 'Plos Medicine.'
