Role of Diet in Colorectal Cancer Incidence: Umbrella Review of Meta-analyses of Prospective Observational Studies
TLDR
This umbrella review of 45 meta-analyses describing 109 associations found convincing evidence of an association between lower CRC risk and higher intakes of dietary fiber, dietary calcium, and yogurt and lower intakes of alcohol and red meat.
Whole Grain Consumption and Inflammatory Markers: A Systematic Literature Review of Randomized Control Trials
TLDR
Consuming whole grain foods had a significant effect in reducing at least one inflammatory marker as demonstrated in 12/31 RCTs, which shows significant reductions in inflammatory markers, mainly CRP.
The short- and long-term effects of dietary patterns on cardiometabolic health in adults aged 65 years or older: a systematic review.
TLDR
The Mediterranean dietary pattern showed the most benefits without harm on cardiometabolic health in older adults, and to include dietary patterns combined with other dietary components, subgroups with cardiometric disease or risk factors, longer follow-up, and outcomes that have not yet been investigated are considered.
Dietary glycemic index, glycemic load, and chronic disease: an umbrella review of meta-analyses of prospective cohort studies
TLDR
There was a positive association between dietary GI and the risk of type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, and colorectal, breast, and bladder cancers, as well as between dietary GL and therisk of coronary heart Disease, type 2 Diabetes, and stroke.
Whole Grains, Refined Grains, and Cancer Risk: A Systematic Review of Meta-Analyses of Observational Studies
TLDR
Overall, meta-analyses of cohort and case-control studies consistently demonstrate that whole grain intake is associated with lower risk of total and site-specific cancer, and support current dietary recommendations to increase whole grain consumption.
Total Dietary Fat Intake, Fat Quality, and Health Outcomes: A Scoping Review of Systematic Reviews of Prospective Studies
TLDR
Overall, the available published evidence deems it reasonable to recommend replacement of SFA with MUFA and PUFA and avoidance of consumption of industrial TFA, and substitution analyses indicate that SFA replacement withPUFA and/or MUFA improves blood lipids and glycemic control.
Potato consumption and risk of cardio-metabolic diseases: evidence mapping of observational studies
TLDR
Evidence mapping found sufficient data on the association between potato intake and cardio-metabolic disease risk factors to warrant for a systematic review/meta-analysis of observational studies.
Dietary glycemic index, glycemic load and cancer risk: a meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies
TLDR
High dietary GI increased overall cancer risk with low certainty of evidence and dietary GL was inversely associated with lung cancer risk in relation to risks of all types of cancer up to 31 March 2021.

Dietary sugars and body weight: systematic review and meta-analyses of randomised controlled trials and cohort studies
TLDR
Among free living people involving ad libitum diets, intake of free sugars or sugar sweetened beverages is a determinant of body weight, and the change in body fatness that occurs with modifying intakes seems to be mediated via changes in energy intakes.
Dietary fibre, whole grains, and risk of colorectal cancer: systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis of prospective studies
TLDR
A high intake of dietary fibre, in particular cereal fibre and whole grains, was associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer.
Glycemic index, glycemic load, and chronic disease risk--a meta-analysis of observational studies.
TLDR
Low-GI and/or low-GL diets are independently associated with a reduced risk of certain chronic diseases and the hypothesis that higher postprandial glycemia is a universal mechanism for disease progression is supported.
Dietary glycaemic index and glycaemic load in relation to the risk of type 2 diabetes: a meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies
TLDR
Further evidence is provided in support of significantly positive associations between dietary GI and GL and the risk of type 2 diabetes and reducing the intake of high-GI foods may bring benefits in diabetes prevention.
Greater whole-grain intake is associated with lower risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and weight gain.
TLDR
Findings from this meta-analysis provide evidence to support beneficial effects of whole-grain intake on vascular disease prevention and potential mechanisms responsible for whole grains' effects on metabolic intermediates require further investigation in large intervention trials.
Carbohydrate Intake, Glycemic Index, Glycemic Load, and Stroke
TLDR
There was no significant association between high carbohydrate intake and stroke risk and a daily high GL diet is the risk factor of stroke event, and further researches need to verify the meta-analyses results and study associated mechanisms.
Fruit and vegetable intake and the risk of cardiovascular disease, total cancer and all-cause mortality—a systematic review and dose-response meta-analysis of prospective studies
TLDR
Fruit and vegetable intakes were associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and all-cause mortality, and public health recommendations to increase fruit and vegetable intake for the prevention of cardiovascular Disease, cancer, and premature mortality are supported.
Associations of Glycemic Index and Load With Coronary Heart Disease Events: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Prospective Cohorts
TLDR
HighGI and GL diets were significantly associated with CHD events in women but not in men, and further studies are required to determine the relationship between GI and GL withCHD in men.
Fiber consumption and all-cause, cardiovascular, and cancer mortalities: a systematic review and meta-analysis of cohort studies.
TLDR
It is found that, compared with those who consumed lowest fiber, for individuals who ate highest fiber, mortality rate was lower, and apparently, fiber consumption is inversely associated with all-cause mortality and CVD, IHD, cancer mortality.
