have been performed on men. However, in a study of more than 69,000 women published in the August 13 issue of the Archives of Internal Medicine, researchers reported that a healthy diet can lower a woman's risk of developing heart disease by as much as 36%. Previous studies have shown a similar correlation in men. The researchers described a healthy diet as one that is high in fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes, whole grains, fish, and poultry, but low in processed and red meats, desserts, refined grains, and high-fat dairy products.
