About The Study: Greater adherence to several healthy eating patterns was associated with a lower risk of death in this study including 75,000 women and 44,000 men with up to 36 years of follow-up. These associations were consistent in different racial and ethnic groups, including Hispanic, non-Hispanic Black, and non-Hispanic white individuals. These findings support the recommendations of Dietary Guidelines for Americans that multiple healthy eating patterns can be adapted to individual food traditions and preferences.
