Brief description Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is responsible for one third of all deaths globally. Most CVD can be prevented by addressing behavioral risk factors, and it is widely accepted that increasing the intake of fruits, vegetables and whole grains could cut CVD risk and associated costs more than 25%. However, surprisingly little is known about the impact of individual foods and beverages and their components on vascular health, or the mechanisms involved. This is the prime research focus.
