News-Medical.Net June 13, 2024, 03:00 PM UTC

Summary: A study in The Lancet Regional Health-Europe analyzed 118,397 British individuals' diets and cardiovascular disease risk. Plant-based non-UPF intake reduced CVD risk by 7% and related mortality by 13%. Plant-based UPF increased CVD risk by 5% and mortality by 12%. Substituting plant-based UPFs with non-UPFs lowered CVD risk and mortality. The study suggests moving towards plant-based diets and reducing UPF consumption for better cardiovascular health.
