Eating More Plant Foods May Cut Heart Disease Risk in Young Adults

In two separate studies, published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, which were dedicated to different measures of healthy plant food consumption, researchers discovered that both young adults and postmenopausal women had fewer heart attacks and had a lower risk of developing cardiovascular disease when they ate more healthy plant foods.Eating More Plant Foods May Cut Heart Disease Risk in Young Adults

One study evaluated whether long-term consumption of a plant-based diet and a shift toward a plant-based diet starting in young adulthood is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease in midlife. Within the scope of this study, a team of researchers examined diet and the occurrence of heart disease in 4,946 adults enrolled in the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) study.

In another study, scientists examined whether diets that included a dietary portfolio of plant-based foods with U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved health claims for lowering "bad" cholesterol levels were associated with fewer cardiovascular disease events in a large group of postmenopausal women. This study included 123,330 women who took part in the Women's Health Initiative, a long-term study looking at risk factors, prevention, and early detection of serious health conditions in postmenopausal women.
