“Infectious and chronic diseases like cancer and cardiovascular disease are impacted by the food we eat” — Paul Ebeling

Researchers have looked at data relating to the associations of mortality with eating patterns by means of analyzing the behaviors of more than 2500 adults over a 10yr frame. They found that diets favoring healthy foods were linked to longer life.

By establishing the frequency of consumption of 108 different foods, the individuals were assigned to 6 different groups based on predominant food choices:

  • Desserts and Sweets – 339 individuals
  • Refined grains – 458 individuals
  • Breakfast Cereal – 386 individuals
  • Alcohol, Fried Foods, and Meat – 693 individuals
  • High-Fat Dairy Products – 332 individuals
  • Healthy Diet – 374 individuals

The “Healthy diet” group was characterized by comparatively higher consumption of whole grains, low-fat dairy products, vegetables, fruit, fish, and poultry, and lower intake of fried foods, meat, added fat, high-calorie drinks, and sweets.

The “High fat dairy products” group had higher consumption of foods like cheese, ice cream, and 2% as well as whole milk and yogurt, with lower consumption of low-fat dairy products, poultry, pasta and rice.

The “High-fat dairy products” group had a 40% higher risk of death than the “Healthy diet” group. The “Sweets and desserts” group had a 37% higher risk of mortality.

There were no significant differences in mortality risk observed between the “Healthy diet” group and the “Refined grains” or “Breakfast cereal” groups.

The outcomes of this research indicate that individuals who adhere to an eating pattern in line with current guidelines to eat relatively high quantities of fruit, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy products,  fish and poultry, are likely to have a lower mortality risk.
