Fruits & Vegetables Lower PAD Risk

If you currently smoke or are a former smoker, eating more fruits and vegetables may
help lower your risk of peripheral artery disease (PAD). PAD is a narrowing of the
blood vessels caused by a build-up of plaque and reduces blood flow to the limbs. This
can cause leg pain, especially when walking or exercising. In a recent study of 3 million
people, those who ate at least 3 servings a day of produce were about 20% less likely to
develop PAD compared to those who ate little produce. This link was only seen in
current or former smokers. Smoking is a risk factor for PAD.
