Several recently published clinical trials and epidemiological studies have added significant new data to our understanding of the impact of dietary modifications on blood pressure. Such studies confirm the blood pressure-lowering effects of sodium restriction, the consumption of diets that are low in fat and enriched in fruits and vegetables, and the sustained effects of weight reduction. This reaffirms the role of lifestyle modifications as both preventative and adjunctive means to lower blood pressure.
