Improved Diets Reduce Risk of Death

Reports from two large cohort studies of health professionals demonstrate that people who maintain a high-quality diet over 12 years experienced significantly lower risks of death from any cause, compared to those who had a consistently low diet score. The Alternative Healthy Eating Index, the Alternative Mediterranean Diet, and the DASH diet yielded a 9-16% reduction in mortality.
