Fried food consumption and risk of coronary artery disease: The Million Veteran Program.

Frequent consumption of fried foods may be associated with increased risk of coronary artery disease in men and women.

​This research work studied the role fried foods play in the development of coronary artery disease (CAD). Researchers compared dietary choices with the incidence of coronary artery disease in a study population comprising over 150,000 men and women with a mean age of 64 years who participated in the Million Veteran Program. 

The team of investigators observed that coronary artery disease was more likely to occur among high consumers of fried foods compared to non-consumers of these foods. "In a large national cohort of U.S. Veterans, fried food consumption has a positive, dose-dependent association with CAD," the authors concluded.
