Abstract

Despite great advances in cardiovascular medicine and the reduction in cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality, CVD remains the leading cause of global mortality. Large epidemiological studies have shown plant-based diets, rich in vegetables, are associated with lower cardiovascular disease risk. Recent evidence suggests greater benefit of some vegetables compared to others, implying not all vegetables have the same health benefits. The overarching objective of this thesis was to investigate the cardiovascular health benefits of different types of vegetables and their bioactive compounds.
