Examining the association between healthy eating patterns and risk of cardiovascular disease

JAMA Internal Medicine

What The Study Did: Whether several recommended healthy eating patterns that combine various nutrients and foods are associated with long-term risk of cardiovascular disease, including heart disease and stroke, was the focus of this observational study that used data from three large study groups with up to 32 years of follow-up. Few studies have examined whether adherence to different dietary patterns could be associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease.

Authors: Frank B. Hu, M.D., Ph.D., of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston, is the corresponding author.
