Fruit and vegetable consumption and the risk of hypertension: a systematic review and meta-analysis of prospective studies

Upping the intake of fruits and vegetables may help reduce the incidence of hypertension in men and women.

This study seeks to clarify the correlation between eating lots of fruits and vegetables and the odds of becoming hypertensive using a meta-analytic approach. Researchers compiled data and evidence extracted from nearly 600,000 individuals who participated in 18 studies.

Researchers noted that the higher the amounts of fruits and vegetables consumed, the lesser the chances that a participant will be diagnosed with hypertension. This study demonstrated that passionate consumption of fruits and vegetables may help to hinder the development of hypertension in men and women.
