The objective of this study was to investigate whether the mitochondrial DNA 5178 cytosine/adenine (Mt5178 C/A) polymorphism modifies the effects of coffee consumption on serum lipid levels and the risk of dyslipidemia in middle-aged Japanese men. A total of 397 male subjects (age, 53.9±7.8 years; mean±s.d.) were selected from among individuals visiting the… CONTINUE READING
