For the study, a team of researchers checked data from 12,168 people of middle age involved in the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study, in which the participants were followed from 1987 to 2016.

The lead author of the new study Casey M. Rebholz, Ph.D., says: “There might be some variability in terms of individual foods, but to reduce cardiovascular disease risk, people should eat more vegetables, nuts, whole grains, fruits, legumes, and fewer animal-based foods.”
