In 30 yrs, researchers recorded 9,185 attacks and 5,290 strokes. Those who ate at least two avocados per week had a 16% reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and a 21% lower chance of a heart attack.

Hass avocados are the most popular in the U.S. They're rich in heart-healthy fats, fibre, and vitamins.

Oleic acid is there. Half an avocado provides the same amount of oleic acid as a tablespoon of olive oil. 

Fiber. One avocado contains 20% of the daily required fibre consumption, a nutrient commonly deficient in the normal American diet. Fiber-rich diets may reduce heart disease risk by 30%.

 Half an avocado offers 15% of the daily required folate (B9), potassium, and magnesium. All of these nutrients have been related to improved heart health.
