Fruit and Vegetables Keeps the Undertaker Away

Results of a prospective study involving 53,383 men and women, aged between 50 and 64 years, indicate that a higher intake of fruits and vegetables may be associated with a reduced risk of acute coronary syndrome ACS (heart attack and angina). During a median follow-up of 7.7 years, 1075 incident cases of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) were identified. Using Cox proportional hazards models adjusted for potential confounders, higher fruit and vegetable intake was associated with a tendency towards lower risk of ACS in men and women, with the inverse association being stronger in men than in women.
