BACKGROUND & AIMS: The association between coronary heart (CHD) and dietary fiber intake is not consistent, especially for the subtypes of dietary fiber. The aim of our study was to conduct a meta-analysis of existing cohort published studies assessing the association between dietary fiber intake and risk of CHD, and quantitatively estimating their dose-response relationships.
We searched PubMed and EMBASE before May 2013. Random-effect model was used to calculate the pool relative risk (RRs) for the incidence and mortality of CHD. Dose-response, subgroup analyses based on fiber subtypes, heterogeneity and publication bias were also carried out.
Eighteen studies involving 672,408 individuals were finally included in the present study. The pooled-adjusted RRs of coronary heart for the highest versus lowest category of fiber intake were 0.93 (95% confidence interval (CI), 0.91-0.96, P
