Multiple studies: There are many well-conducted studies in the peer-reviewed medical literature demonstrating that the DASH diet is effective in reducing blood pressure, slowing progression of kidney disease, reducing risk of diabetes, heart failure and colon cancer, maintaining weight loss etc. It is one of the best-researched diets and the results are impressive.

The National institutes of Health website has details on the science behind the diet as well as specific information on how to eat a DASH diet.
