Abstract

Background: Populations eating mainly vegetarian diets have lower blood pressure levels than those eating omnivorous diets. Epidemiologic findings suggest that eating fruits and vegetables lowers blood pressure. Hypothesis: Two hypotheses were tested: (1) that high intake of fruits and vegetables lowers blood pressure, and (2) that an overall dietary pattern (known as the DASh diet, or DASH combination diet) that is high in fruits, vegetables, nuts, and low-fat dairy products, emphasize fish and chicken rather than red meat, and is low in saturated fat, cholesterol, sugar, and refined carbohydrate lowers blood pressure. Methods: Participants were 459 adults with untreated systolic blood pressure
