Abstract

Epidemiological studies show that consumption of plant foods is associated with lowered risk of chronic diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular disease (WHO 2003). Dietary recommendations are based partly on this epidemiological evidence. Plant foods consist of cereal grains, vegetables, legumes, fruits, and berries. These plant foods contain (poly)phenolic compounds, which have been discussed in previous chapters of this book.
