I'm including this not because it's particularly noteworthy or surprising or anything, it's just that I've been falling down on the job of the Meat Facts mission statement, which is to compare news about corpse-based nutrition to that about plant-based nutrition. So far it's leaned wayyy over into the former realm, mainly because the positive effects of plant foods are all in stories like this, that aren't nearly as dramatic and outrageous as the "meatier" stories. But there are thousands of these, so let this stand in for at least a few hundred: Vitamin E protects against artery disease, and according to this, good vitamin E sources are legumes, vegetables and olive oil. The NIH concurs, adding nuts and specifying green leafy vegetables.
