A review of the studies involving 12 major food groups and their association with death rates (all-cause mortality) was recently published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. The 12 major food groups, including whole grains, refined grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, eggs, dairy, fish, red meat, processed meat, and sugar-sweetened beverages. They found the following associations:
Less mortality (lower death rates) with higher levels of whole grain, vegetable, fruit, nut, legume, and fish consumption.
More mortality (higher death rates) with higher levels of red meat, processed meat, egg, and sugar-sweetened beverage consumption.
