A good study that went beyond the usual of a typical observational study – they separated vegetables into categories of intake and also measured the thickness by ultrasonography of carotid arteries and plaque in a large sample size of older women. Since it has been shown that not all vegetables have the same effects (more than likely due to their varied content of phytochemicals) – here is where the cruciferous vegetables came out ahead of the pack.
