Effects of dietary fatty acids and carbohydrates on the ratio of serum total to HDL cholesterol and on serum lipids and apolipoproteins: a meta-analysis of 60 controlled trials.
The effects of dietary fats on total:HDL cholesterol may differ markedly from their effects on LDL, and the effects of fats on these risk markers should not in themselves be considered to reflect changes in risk but should be confirmed by prospective observational studies or clinical trials. Expand
Trans fatty acids and cardiovascular disease.
The authors consider the feasibility and potential implications of reducing or eliminating the consumption of trans fatty acids from partially hydrogenated vegetable oils in the United States. Expand
Dietary antioxidant flavonoids and risk of coronary heart disease: the Zutphen Elderly Study
Flavonoids in regularly consumed foods may reduce the risk of death from coronary heart disease in elderly men and showed an inverse relation with incidence of myocardial infarction. Expand
Efficacy and safety of plant stanols and sterols in the management of blood cholesterol levels.
Present evidence is sufficient to promote use of sterols and stanols for lowering LDL cholesterol levels in persons at increased risk for coronary heart disease. Expand

All fatty acids elevated HDL cholesterol when substituted for carbohydrates, but the effect diminished with increasing unsaturation of the fatty acids, and that for monounsaturates was not. Expand
Content of potentially anticarcinogenic flavonoids of 28 vegetables and 9 fruits commonly consumed in the Netherlands
The content of the potentially anticarcinogenic flavonoids quercetin, kaempferol, myricetin, apigenin, and luteolin of 28 vegetables and 9 fruits was determined by RP-HPLC with UVdetection. FreshExpand
Effect of dietary trans fatty acids on high-density and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels in healthy subjects.
The effect of trans fatty acids on the serum lipoprotein profile is at least as unfavorable as that of the cholesterol-raising saturated fatty acids, because they not only raise LDL cholesterol levels but also lower HDL cholesterol levels. Expand
Intake of potentially anticarcinogenic flavonoids and their determinants in adults in The Netherlands.
The use of new analytic technology suggests that in the past flavonoid intake has been overestimated fivefold, but on a milligram-per-day basis, the intake of the antioxidant flavonoids still exceeded that of the antioxidants beta-carotene and vitamin E. Expand
Effect of 3-year folic acid supplementation on cognitive function in older adults in the FACIT trial: a randomised, double blind, controlled trial
Folic acid supplementation for 3 years significantly improved domains of cognitive function that tend to decline with age, particularly in memory and sensorimotor speed. Expand
Chlorogenic acid and caffeic acid are absorbed in humans.
One third of chlorogenic acid and almost all of the caffeic acid were absorbed in the small intestine of humans, which implies that part ofchlorogenic acid from foods will enter into the blood circulation, but most will reach the colon. Expand
