Does eating vegetables reduce cardiovascular risk? It’s not so simple
Keywords:vegetable intake, cardiovascular diseases, healthy diet, lifestyle
People who eat more raw vegetables are likely to have lower risks of cardiovascular diseases, but we observed that they are also more likely to have higher socioeconomic status and healthier lifestyle. Therefore, solely eating more vegetables may not necessarily prevent heart diseases. It is important to keep an overall balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
