Intake of vegetables rich in carotenoids and risk of coronary heart disease in men: The Physicians' Health Study.

Men who regularly consume large servings of vegetables are less prone to develop coronary heart disease.

This study investigated the relationship between consistent dietary ingestion of vegetables and the odds of developing coronary heart disease (CHD) in men. Researchers tracked the diets of 15,220 male subjects without stroke, cancer, and heart disease recruited from the Physician's Health Study for 12 years. The coronary heart disease odds ratio of each participant in this study was also determined.

Researchers found out that subjects with high intake of vegetables had lower risk of developing coronary heart disease than those who totally avoid or rarely consume vegetables. The findings of this study support recommendations that promote the increased consumption of vegetables for the reduction of coronary heart disease risk in men.
