Research Paper Title
Dietary Fibre Intake & Risk of Cardiovascular Disease: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.
Is greater intake of dietary fibre related to lower risk of cardiovascular or coronary heart disease, using a dose-response relationship?
For each increase of 7g/day intake of fibre, separate risk for cardiovascular disease and coronary heart disease were 9% lower.
What is Known and What This Paper Adds
Numerous observational studies have reported greater fibre intake being associated with lower risk of cardiovascular disease, with others reporting no such associations. This work explores potential dose-response associations and attempts to quantify potential sources of heterogeneity between included studies.
