Clinical Trial: No Difference in Cardiovascular Disease Risk Between Plant-Based and Low-Fat Omnivorous Soul Food Diets

A new randomized clinical trial examining weight loss and cardiovascular disease risk factors among African American adults found that “there were no differences between the groups, and the magnitude of changes overall was small.”
