Previous research has shown that those who eat healthily can help to prevent obesity and reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Now, a new study suggests that a healthy diet can also lower the risk of cardiovascular disease by 10 percent.

In this new study, researchers from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) compared the effects of three eating patterns against the risk of experiencing a cardiovascular event within the next ten years. The three diets consisted of the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, and the Western diet, which is typically low in fruits and vegetables while high in fat and sodium.


The results published in the American Journal of Cardiology suggest that while the DASH and fruit and vegetable diet both reduced the risk score by about 10 percent, the DASH diet showed additional benefits for women and Black adults compared to the Western diet. In fact, the DASH diet reduction in risk was twice as large in women and four times as large in Black adults.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a general term for various conditions affecting the heart or blood vessels. CVD includes coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, rheumatic heart disease, and congenital heart disease. In the United States, CVD is the leading cause of death, accounting for more than 800,000 deaths each year. The good news is that CVD is preventable. Making healthy lifestyle choices, such as eating a healthy diet, can reduce your risk of developing CVD risk factors. These risk factors can include cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, and atherosclerotic heart disease, also known as the hardening and narrowing of the arteries caused by fatty buildup that may lead to heart attack and stroke.

If you have already been diagnosed with CVD, treatments available can help improve your quality of life and extend your life expectancy. With early detection and treatment, you can live a long and healthy life despite having CVD.
