Dietary antioxidant vitamins intake and mortality: A report from two cohort studies of Chinese adults in Shanghai.

The likelihood of suffering from cardiovascular-related and other causes of deaths may decrease with increased intake of foods high in carotene and vitamin C in middle-aged and elderly individuals.

 This study assessed the association between eating foods rich in antioxidant vitamins and the probability of suffering from premature deaths. Researchers monitored the diets and mortality records of more than 130,000 middle-aged and elderly Chinese adults recruited from Shanghai Women's and Men's Health Studies.

Researchers discovered that high dietary ingestion of foods packed with carotene and vitamin C resulted in lower risk of death from cardiovascular diseases and other causes. The results of this study suggest that creating more space for foods high in carotene and vitamin C in our diets can substantially reduce the cardiovascular and total mortality risk in middle-aged and elderly individuals.
