Increasingly, scientific evidence suggests that there are positive health benefits from diets which are high in fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains. These diets also include fish, nuts, low-fat dairy products and fat, from predominantly vegetable oils, which are low in saturated fats and partially hydrogenated oils.
