Vegan Diet Health Benefits in Metabolic Syndrome
TLDR
The aim of this review is to analyze the possible impact of the vegan diet on MetS onset and its treatment and recommend oral food supplements especially fortified foods to restore the nutritional deficiencies.
Food for Thought or Feeding a Dogma? Diet and Coronary Artery Disease: a Clinician’s Perspective
TLDR
An overview of nutrition studies evaluating the association of dietary saturated fat and meat intake with the development of coronary artery disease (CAD) and implications of recent data are provided and the challenges with RCTs are considered.
Dietary fatty acids and CHD: from specific recommendations to dietary patterns
TLDR
This critical narrative review of past and recent data on the association of FA with CHD is critically analysed, then it is proposed that the Mediterranean diet and Japanese diet should be revitalised for Westerners and Asian populations, respectively.
Inflammatory, oxidative and DNA damage status in vegetarians: is the future of human diet green?
TLDR
The evidence on the effect of vegetarian diet on the inflammatory and immunological biomarkers is poor, which could be explained by methodological constraints such as small sample size, short duration of vegetarianism and inconsistent definitions of the omnivorous diet.
Targeting Cardiovascular Risk Factors Through Dietary Adaptations and Caloric Restriction Mimetics
TLDR
It is concluded that implementation of feasible dietary approaches holds the promise to attenuate the burden of cardiovascular disease and facilitate healthy aging in humans.
Molecular Immune-Inflammatory Connections between Dietary Fats and Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease: Which Translation into Clinics?
TLDR
A better understanding of the anatomic and physiological barriers for the absorption and the players involved in the metabolism of dietary lipids (e.g., gut microbiota) might be an alternative strategy in the attempt to provide a first step towards a personalized dietary approach in CVD prevention.
Controversies in the Use of Omega-3 Fatty Acids to Prevent Atherosclerosis
TLDR
Clinical and basic research evidence suggests that the use of omega-3 FA, specifically EPA, appears to slow atherosclerosis by reducing triglyceride-rich lipoproteins and/or inflammation, therefore addressing residual risk of clinical ASCVD.
Effect of Epidemic Intermittent Fasting on Cardiometabolic Risk Factors: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
TLDR
This meta-analysis supports the role of IF in improving the component composition of CMRFs, including weight, waist circumference, fat mass, BMI, blood pressure, total cholesterol, triglycerides, fasting insulin, and insulin resistance, compared to a control group diet.
An Update on Omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids and Cardiovascular Health
TLDR
The current evidence regarding Ω-3 and CV health is reviewed, potential reasoning for discrepant results in the literature is put forth, critical concepts such as measuring blood levels of Ω2 with a dedicated Ω3 index are highlighted and current recommendations as suggested by health care professional societies and recent significant scientific data are addressed.
Prevention and Reversal of Morbidity in Today’s Cardiovascular Patient: Role of Lifestyle Modification and Nutrition in the Current Era
TLDR
A more plant-based whole food diet, regular exercise, stress relief, connectedness, and other lifestyle approaches are reviewed to further the understanding of the front-line clinician in cardiovascular prevention.

Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease with a Mediterranean Diet Supplemented with Extra‐Virgin Olive Oil or Nuts
TLDR
In this study involving persons at high cardiovascular risk, the incidence of major cardiovascular events was lower among those assigned to a Mediterranean diet supplemented with extra‐virgin olive oil or nuts than among those assign to a reduced‐fat diet.

Association of egg intake with blood lipids, cardiovascular disease, and mortality in 177,000 people in 50 countries.
TLDR
In 3 large international prospective studies including ∼177,000 individuals, 12,701 deaths, and 13,658 CVD events from 50 countries in 6 continents, there did not find significant associations between egg intake and blood lipids, mortality, or major CVDEvents.
Long-term associations of nut consumption with body weight and obesity.
TLDR
Regular consumption of nuts over the long term, as a replacement to less healthful foods, can be incorporated as a component of a healthy diet for the prevention of obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Veganism, vegetarianism, bone mineral density, and fracture risk: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Compared with omnivores, vegetarians and vegans had lower BMD at the femoral neck and lumbar spine and vegan also had higher fracture rates, and vegetarian and vegan diets should be planned to avoid negative consequences on bone health.
Extravirgin Olive Oil Consumption Reduces Risk of Atrial Fibrillation: The PREDIMED (Prevención con Dieta Mediterránea) Trial
TLDR
