Science hasn't been kind to us this year.

Granted, it is mostly our fault—climate change and all. But, sometimes, scientists throw us a ball or, in this case, a loaf of bread. Yep, now, they're telling us we should eat all the bread we want. (Not all... but you get the point.)

According to a new study, bread may help you live longer. Researchers looked at data from over 400,000 men and women and found that those that ingested plant protein had lower mortality rates—which is obviously a rare good thing.

"Our study findings represent one piece of evidence regarding a possible beneficial role for greater plant protein-based diets in the prevention of cardiovascular disease mortality, and healthcare providers could consider the totality of available evidence as it relates to their individual patients with their specific risk factor profiles," the researchers explained to MedPage Today.

Not only do plant-based food such as pasta and bread lowers your risk of dying, but it also decreases the risk of cardiovascular disease. And, that's even after researchers took into account each individual's lifestyle including smoking, diabetes, vitamins, and more.
