Association of Vegetarian and Vegan Diets with Cardiovascular Health: An Umbrella Review of Meta-Analysis of Observational Studies and Randomized Trials

Eating of healthy plant foods may have a positive impact on cardiovascular health and combat the development and mortality from ischemic stroke, cardiovascular, and ischemic heart disease (IHD).

This study sought to clarify the cardiovascular health benefits associated with the consumption of a plant-based diet. Researchers conducted a comprehensive meta-analysis on data and evidence drawn out from relevant studies that appeared on PubMed, Scopus, Embase, CINAHL, Cochrane, and Web of Science database.

Researchers noted a significant reduction in ischemic stroke, cardiovascular, cerebrovascular, and ischemic heart disease (IHD) morbidity and mortality risk among followers of vegetarian and vegan diets. This meta-analytic study emphasizes that plant foods should be an integral part of every diet aimed at preventing the development and deaths arising from cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease.
