Consumption of Fruit or Fiber-Fruit Decreases the Risk of Cardiovascular Disease in a Mediterranean Young Cohort.

Low cardiovascular disease risk is associated with increased consumption of high fiber diets rich in fruits, cruciferous vegetables, and whole grains.

​This study evaluated the association between the consumption of fiber-rich foods and the odds of developing cardiovascular diseases. Researchers collated and analyzed data on the fiber consumption rate and cardiovascular disease hazard ratio of 17,007 subjects recruited from a Mediterranean cohort of young adults. The team of investigators discovered that consistent consumers of diets loaded with fiber-rich foods, such as fruits, cruciferous vegetables, and whole grains had slim chances of developing cardiovascular diseases. The results of this study indicate that generous intake of foods with high fiber content may offer young adults adequate protection against cardiovascular diseases.
