A prospective study of dietary fiber intake and risk of cardiovascular disease among women.

​Habitual consumption of fiber-rich foods, such fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, may lessen the risk of developing cardiovascular disease in women.

This study evaluated the effect of high dietary intake of fiber on cardiovascular disease risk in women. Researchers monitored the diet and incidence rate of cardiovascular disease in a study population comprising of more than 35,000 female health professionals with no previous history of cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Researchers found a significant reduction in cardiovascular disease risk among subjects who regularly consumed generous amounts of fiber-containing foods, such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. The results of this study suggest that a high-fiber diet may be an important part of a dietary approach for the prevention of cardiovascular disease in women.
