Diet, cardiovascular disease, and mortality in 80 countries
European Heart Journal, July 21, 2023 - From the PURE study, a large cohort including more than 140,000 people from the general population from 21 countries, a healthy diet score was developed based on six foods associated with lower mortality risk (i.e fruit, vegetables, nuts, legumes, fish, and dairy). A healthy diet score 5 or higher was associated with 30% lower risk of mortality, 18% lower risk of cardiovascular disease, 14% lower risk of myocardial infarction and 19% less risk of stroke. These results were validated in external cohorts that included patients with known cardiovascular disease. A diet comprised of higher amounts of fruit, vegetables, nuts, legumes, fish, and whole-fat dairy is associated with lower cardiovascular disease and mortality in all world regions.
