Associations Between Dietary Patterns and Subclinical Cardiac Injury: An Observational Analysis From the DASH Trial

Analysis (n=326) demonstrated that both a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and the DASH diet were linked to lower subclinical cardiac damage and strain (as meansured by hs-cTnI and NT-proBNPN) vs. control diet within an 8-week period in adults without preexisting CVD.

SPS commentary:

According to an editorial, these data further the knowledge about the power of food to improve cardiovascular outcomes and it suggests that recommendations to increase the intake of fruits and vegetables to at least 10 servings per day should be generalised to the overall population, regardless of health status.
