An interesting study of over 28,000 women over the age of 39. Baseline intake of fruits and vegetables was assessed using semiquantitative food frequency questionnaires (FFQs). Incident hypertension was identified from annual follow-up questionnaires. After 12.9 years, the study concluded that when fruits and vegetables were analyzed separately, higher intake of all fruits but not all vegetables remained significantly associated with reduced risk of hypertension after adjustment for lifestyle and dietary factors. Adding body mass index (BMI) to the models eliminated all associations. They concluded that a higher intake of fruits and vegetables, as part of a healthy dietary pattern, may contribute a modest beneficial effect to hypertension prevention, possibly through improvement in body weight regulation.
