BACKGROUND Vegetarians have lower platelet and plasma concentrations of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) than do omnivores. We recently showed that male vegetarians have higher platelet aggregability than do omnivores. OBJECTIVE We investigated whether male vegetarians (n = 17) who consumed an increased amount of dietary alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)(More)
Objective: To determine whether healthy males who consumed increased amounts of dietary stearic acid compared with increased dietary palmitic acid exhibited any changes in their platelet aggregability, platelet fatty acid profiles, platelet morphology, or haemostatic factors.Design: A randomized cross-over dietary intervention.Subjects and interventions:(More)
Dietary factors play a critical role in human health. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to examine micronutrient intake and status of subjects who were habitual meat eaters eating different quantities of meat with those who were habitual vegetarians or vegans. One hundred and thirty-nine healthy male subjects (vegan, n = 18; ovolacto-vegetarian, n =(More)
Objective: The aim of this study was to assess thrombosis tendency in subjects who were habitual meat-eaters compared with those who were habitual vegetarians.Design: Cross-sectional comparision of habitual meat-eaters and habitual vegetarians.Setting: Free living subjects.Subjects: One hundred and thirty-nine healthy male subjects (vegans n=18, ovolacto(More)
Sedentary and trained men respond differently to the same intensity of exercise, this is probably related to their platelet reactivity and antioxidant capacity. There is growing interest in the utilization of antioxidant-rich plant extracts as dietary food supplements. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of an acute bout of sub maximal(More)
Objective: To determine whether healthy males who consumed increased amounts of dietary stearic acid compared with increased dietary palmitic acid through the consumption of commercially available foods, exhibited any changes in plasma lipids, platelet aggregation or platelet activation status.Design: A randomised cross-over dietary intervention.Subjects(More)
Objective:The aim of this study was to investigate the plasma coagulation factor VII activity and its correlates in healthy Australian men.Design:Cross-sectional study.Setting:Free living subjects.Subjects:A total of 139 healthy Australian males aged 20–55 y with widely varying intakes of individual fatty acids.Outcome measures:The concentration of(More)
