Nordic Nutrition Recommendations 2004 – integrating nutrition and physical activity
The 4th edition of the Nordic Nutrition Recommendations, NNR 2004, gives the proportions between energy yielding nutrients, recommended daily intakes (RI) of certain vitamins and minerals, andExpand
Metabolic Effects of Krill Oil are Essentially Similar to Those of Fish Oil but at Lower Dose of EPA and DHA, in Healthy Volunteers
Krill oil and fish oil represent comparable dietary sources of n-3 PUFAs, even if the EPA + DHA dose in the krill oil was 62.8% of that in the fish oil, and no statistically significant differences in changes in any of the serum lipids or the markers of oxidative stress and inflammation between the study groups were observed.

Can Vitamin D Supplementation Reduce the Risk of Fracture in the Elderly? A Randomized Controlled Trial
It is found that an intervention with 10 μg of vitamin D3 alone produced no fracture‐preventing effect in a nursing home population of frail elderly people. Expand
Dairy products and metabolic effects in overweight men and women: results from a 6-mo intervention study.
This study gives no clear support to the hypothesis that a moderately increased intake of dairy products beneficially affects aspects of the metabolic syndrome, but apparently positive effects on waist circumference and sagittal abdominal diameter in subjects with a low calcium intake suggest a possible threshold in relation to effects on body composition.

Dietary patterns, food groups and myocardial infarction: a case–control study
A dietary pattern emphasising nutrient-rich plant foods and high-fat fish and low in trans fatty acids was associated with decreased risk of MI among Norwegians. Expand
Biomarkers for intake of dairy fat and dairy products
The aim of this study was to correlate the fatty acids characteristic of dairy fat (14:0, 14:1, 15:0, 17:0 and 17:1) in adipose tissue, serum lipid fractions and the estimated intake of dairy fat,Expand
Metabolic aspects of peroxisomal β-oxidation
In the course of the last decade peroxisomal beta-oxidation has emerged as a metabolic process indispensable to normal physiology. Peroxisomes beta-oxidize fatty acids, dicarboxylic acids,Expand
Effects of partially hydrogenated fish oil, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, and butter on serum lipoproteins and Lp[a] in men.
It is indicated that consumption of PHFO may unfavorably affect lipid risk indicators for coronary heart disease at least to the same extent as butterfat. Expand
The serum LDL/HDL cholesterol ratio is influenced more favorably by exchanging saturated with unsaturated fat than by reducing saturated fat in the diet of women.
To influence the LDL/HDL cholesterol ratio, changing the proportions of dietary fatty acids may be more important than restricting the percentage of total or saturated fat energy, at least when derived mainly from lauric and myristic acids, both of which increase HDL cholesterol. Expand
