Eating plenty of protein could be the key to fighting heart failure in the elderly.

A study of more than 2,000 Europeans looked at, and compared, a person's heart health with their protein intake.

It found that people who ate the smallest amount of protein had a 46% higher chance of death than those who ate the most.

Experts believe that having a diet with a high protein content helps to build muscle mass, and can help keep the heart stronger for longer.
