Objective: To examine the associations between overall mortality and cause-specific mortality and plant protein intake.
Key Findings: Conclusions and relevance: In this large prospective cohort, higher plant protein intake was associated with small reductions in risk of overall and cardiovascular disease mortality. Our findings provide evidence that dietary modification in choice of protein sources may influence health and longevity.
