Vegetable intake is associated with lower Frammingham risk scores in Korean men: Korea National Health and Nutrition Survey 2007-2009

Men who want to minimize their risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) should create more room for vegetables in their diet.

The Framingham Risk Scoring System predicts an individual's chances of acquiring coronary heart disease (CHD). This study looked at the risk of coronary heart disease in accordance with the rate of ingestion of vegetables. With the aid of validated food frequency questionnaires, researchers determined the dietary habits of 2,510 male adults aged 40-64 years. The coronary heart disease risk of each participant was estimated using the Framingham Risk Scoring System.

Researchers identified a trend towards increased protection against coronary heart disease among daily consumers of vegetables. "The major results of this study indicate that higher vegetable intake may help prevent CHD in Korean men," the authors concluded.
