Consumption of fruit and vegetable and risk of coronary heart disease: a meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies.

​Adopting a dietary pattern characterized by high fruit and vegetable consumption may help to improve an individual's chances of avoiding coronary heart disease.

This research work studied the connection between fruit and vegetable intake and the likelihood of developing coronary heart disease. A group of scientists from China pooled data from 23 studies enrolling 937,665 subjects and 18,047 coronary heart disease patients.

The research team observed that the risk of coronary heart disease decreased with increase in consumption of fruits and vegetables, especially among Western populations. Evidence from this study support the inclusion of fruits and vegetables in a heart-healthy diet.
