Consuming Pulses Linked With Lower Risk of Cardiovascular Disease

Consuming Pulses Linked With Lower Risk of Cardiovascular Disease

Pulses are edible seeds that grow in a pod, such as beans, lentils, and peas. They are a low-fat source of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. A recent study suggests that consuming pulses may help lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease, and hypertension.

For their study, researchers from the University of Toronto used data from 28 prospective cohort studies that had looked at the association between pulses and cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. 

The researchers found that participants with the highest consumption of pulses had up to a 10% lower incidence of cardiovascular disease, coronary artery disease, hypertension, and obesity. No association was found between consumption of pulses and incidence of stroke or diabetes.

The study was published on November 15, 2019 in Advances in Nutrition.
