People Who Eat High-Fiber Foods Have Lower Risk Of Cardiovascular Disease

April 16, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
A Swedish study of the eating habits and health status of 20,000 people has found that high-fiber foods provide protection against cardiovascular disease, especially in women. The researchers could not determine why a high-fiber diet was more beneficial for women than men, though they did note that women tended to get their fiber from fruits and vegetables, while men got their fiber from bread. No correlation was  found between other dietary nutrients – e.g., saturated fat or sugar – and cardiovascular disease.
