Key MethodInvestigators collected and analyzed mortality data for >50 diseases, including 7 different cancers, from 65 counties and 130 villages in rural mainland China. Blood, urine, food samples, and detailed dietary data were collected from 50 adults in each village and analyzed for a variety of nutritional, viral, hormonal, and toxic chemical factors. In rural China, fat intake was less than half that in the United States, and fiber intake was 3 times higher. Animal protein intake was very low, only…Expand
Food intake patterns and 25-year mortality from coronary heart disease: Cross-cultural correlations in the Seven Countries Study
TLDR
Cross-cultural analyses are consistent with the hypothesis that dietary patterns are important determinants of differences in population CHD death rates, and confirm the opposite effects on apparent risk of animal and vegetable foods. Expand
Dietary choice and health behaviors in eastern Chinese women: a descriptive, population-based survey and review of public health data.
TLDR
This study suggests some overall positive lower rates of tobacco use, alcohol consumption and insomnia than reported previously, but physical exercise was also decreased, and dietary habits were relatively healthy. Expand

TLDR
Besides low salt intake, plant-based dietary patterns that are rich in fruit, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, seeds, nuts, and dairy and low in meat, sweets, and alcohol significantly improved risk factors for stroke, and observational studies clearly demonstrated the stroke morbidity and mortality benefits.

TLDR
It is increasingly a shameful national embarrassment for the United States to have constructed a billion-dollar cardiac healthcare industry surrounding an illness that does not even exist in more than half of the planet and to ignore CVD inception initiated by progressive endothelial injury. Expand
The cardiovascular health of residents in selected metropolitan cities in China.
TLDR

TLDR
Vegetarian diets not only lower BMI, but also attenuate the BMI-related increases of atherogenic lipid/ lipoprotein and the probability of coronary heart disease. Expand

TLDR
A comprehensive cross-sectional survey of possible risk factors for primary liver cancer in The People's Republic of China found that aflatoxin exposure consistently remained unassociated with PLC mortality regardless of variable adjustment, and an explanatory model for the etiology of PLC is proposed, taking into consideration the role of nutrition.

Additional ecological evidence: lipids and breast cancer mortality among women aged 55 and over in China.
TLDR
Although the result is consistent with a positive association between lipid intake and breast cancer risk, the observed association is weaker than the association previously observed, and provides only modest support for the possibility of a diet-breast cancer link. Expand
