Individuals on high fruit diets may have a low tendency of developing abdominal aortic aneurysm.
This study aimed to determine the role fruits and vegetables play in the prevention of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA). Researchers collected and reviewed data on the fruit and vegetable intake levels and incidence rate of abdominal aortic aneurysm in a cohort of 47,926 Swedish men and women between the ages of 46 to 84 years.
Researchers observed that regular ingestion of fruits diminished the risk of having aneurysm. According to this study, the consumption of 2 fruits per day was found to lower the odds of suffering from non-ruptured aneurysm and ruptured aneurysm by 31% and 39% respectively. The results of this study show that a high fruit diet may contribute positively to the prevention of abdominal aortic aneurysm.
