Blood levels of long-chain n-3 fatty acids and the risk of sudden death.
The n-3 fatty acids found in fish are strongly associated with a reduced risk of sudden death among men without evidence of prior cardiovascular disease. Expand
Adipose tissue biomarkers of fatty acid intake.
Adipose tissue is a suitable biomarker of dietary fatty acid intake, particularly for n-3 and n-6 cis polyunsaturated fatty acids and trans fatty acids, and these adipose tissue and dietary questionnaires should complement, rather than substitute for, each other in epidemiologic studies. Expand
Comparison between plasma and erythrocyte fatty acid content as biomarkers of fatty acid intake in US women.
Erythrocyte n-3 fatty acids of marine origin and trans fatty acid content are suitable biomarkers for long-term intake. Expand
Coffee, CYP1A2 genotype and risk of myocardial infarction
In summary, intake of coffee was associated with an increased risk of MI only among those with impaired caffeine metabolism, suggesting that caffeine plays a major role in this association. Expand

In observational studies, higher ALA exposure is associated with a moderately lower risk of CVD, and the high unexplained heterogeneity highlights the need for additional well-designed observational studies and large randomized clinical trials to evaluate the effects of ALA on CVD. Expand
Dietary patterns are associated with metabolic syndrome in adult Samoans.
Reduced intake of processed foods high in refined grains and adherence to a neo-traditional eating pattern characterized by plant-based fiber, seafood, and coconut products may help to prevent growth in the prevalence of metabolic syndrome in the Samoan islands. Expand
Dietary fat and semen quality among men attending a fertility clinic.
In this preliminary cross-sectional study, high intake of saturated fats was negatively related to sperm concentration whereas higher intake of omega-3 fats was positivelyrelated to sperm morphology. Expand
Circulating carotenoids and risk of breast cancer: pooled analysis of eight prospective studies.
BACKGROUND Carotenoids, micronutrients in fruits and vegetables, may reduce breast cancer risk. Most, but not all, past studies of circulating carotenoids and breast cancer have found an inverseExpand
A Prospective Study of Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid Levels in Blood and Prostate Cancer Risk
Higher blood levels of long-chain n-3 fatty acids, mainly found in marine foods, and of linoleic acid, usually found in non-hydrogenated vegetable oils, are associated with a reduced risk of prostate cancer. Expand
LDL particle size distribution. Results from the Framingham Offspring Study.
The identification of small, dense LDL particles per se may not be a good indicator of coronary artery disease risk in population studies, and compared with subjects with optimal LDL cholesterol levels, individuals with high-risk HDL cholesterol levels had a higher prevalence of LDL 3 and 4 and a lower prevalence of HDL 1 and 2.
