#Flash: Higher Fibre And Vitamin C Intake Can Lower CVD Risk
A new study finds that adults newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes had a lower long-term risk for cardiovascular disease if they had lower fat intake and higher intake of fiber and vitamin C. Data on various confounding factors like smoking, alcohol use, physical activity, fiber, total energy and fat intake were obtained through questionnaires at the time of T2D screening and 1 year later. It was observed that smoking and high fat intake were strongly associated with a higher chance of CVD, while high plasma vitamin C and high fibre intake were associated with a lower hazard of CVD. Also, it was established that curtailing the fat intake impacted following T2D diagnosis modified associations with CVD.
