Fruit and Vegetable Consumption and the Incidence of Hypertension in Three Prospective Cohort Studies.

​Habitual consumers of fruits and vegetables may have a low tendency of developing hypertension.

This study explored the relationship between the consumption of fruits and vegetables and the risk of developing hypertension. Researchers studied the diets of 187,453 men and women and compared the hypertension odds ratios of all the participants in this study.

The team of investigators found out that increased intake of fruits and vegetables, such as apples, broccoli, raisins, and carrots, was associated with a significant decrease in hypertension risk. The results of this study further strengthen the evidence that fruits and vegetables may play a key role in the prevention of hypertension.
