A comprehensive ecologic survey of dietary, life-style, and mortality characteristics of 65 counties in rural China showed that diets are substantially richer in foods of plant origin when compared with diets consumed in the more industrialized, Western societies. Mean intakes of animal protein (about one-tenth of the mean intake in the United States as energy percent), total fat (14.5% of energy), and dietary fiber (33.3 g/d) reflected a substantial preference for foods of plant origin. Mean… Expand
Diet, lifestyle, and the etiology of coronary artery disease: the Cornell China study.
TLDR
The combined coronary artery disease mortality rates for both genders in rural China were inversely associated with the frequency of intake of green vegetables and plasma erythrocyte monounsaturated fatty acids, but positively associated with a combined index of salt intake plus urinary sodium and plasma apolipoprotein B. Expand
A very-low-fat vegan diet increases intake of protective dietary factors and decreases intake of pathogenic dietary factors.
TLDR
It is suggested that a very-low-fat vegan diet can be useful in increasing intake of protective nutrients and phytochemicals and minimizing intake of dietary factors implicated in several chronic diseases. Expand
Phytochemicals Ingested in Traditional Diets and Medicines as Modulators of Energy Metabolism
TLDR
The role of phytochemicals as factors in diseases that are widespread in industrial societies such as diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and dental caries are recognized as having a dietary basis attributable in large part to consumption of lipids and carbohydrates. Expand
Proposal for a dietary "phytochemical index".
TLDR
A "phytochemical index" (PI) is proposed, defined as the percent of dietary calories derived from foods rich in phytochemicals, which could aid epidemiologists in exploring the health consequences of diets high inphytochemical-rich plant foods, and could also help clinical nutritionists in their efforts to improve the phytochemical nutrition of their clients.

Animal Source Foods to Improve Micronutrient Nutrition and Human Function in Developing Countries Dynamics of the Nutrition Transition toward the Animal Foods Sector in China and its Implications: A Worried Perspective 1
TLDR
The large shifts in the composition of diets and obesity across the developing world and notes that these changes are accelerating are documents in descriptive and more rigorous dynamic longitudinal analysis. Expand
Stroke and diets – A review
  • Chin-Lon Lin
  • Medicine
  • Tzu chi medical journal
  • 2021
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. Expand
Dynamics of the nutrition transition toward the animal foods sector in China and its implications: a worried perspective.
TLDR
The large shifts in the composition of diets and obesity across the developing world and notes that these changes are accelerating are documents in descriptive and more rigorous dynamic longitudinal analysis. Expand
Blood cholesterol and apolipoprotein B levels in relation to intakes of animal and plant proteins in US adults.
TLDR
This cross-sectional sample of adults 20 years and older who participated in phase 1 of the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, a representative sample of the United States non-institutionalized population, concludes that consumption of MFP proteins was consistently higher among persons with higher cholesterol concentrations while consumption of plant proteins was consistent higher among people with lower cholesterol concentrations. Expand
The nutrition transition: new trends in the global diet.
TLDR
Data from Asian nations, where diet structure is rapidly changing, suggest that diets higher in fats and sweeteners are also more diverse and more varied, and may be governed not by physiological mechanisms but by the amount of fat available in the food supply. Expand
China in the period of transition from scarcity and extensive undernutrition to emerging nutrition‐related non‐communicable diseases, 1949–1992
TLDR
Shifts in diet, activity and body composition in 1949–1992 set the stage for major shifts in nutrition in the subsequent decades, including increased undernutrition in the 1959–1962 period and a remarkable rebound and continued improvement thereafter. Expand

Diet and Chronic Degenerative Diseases A Summary of Results from an Ecologic Study in Rural China
In 1983, a cross-sectional survey of diet, lifestyle, and disease mortality characteristics was carried out in 130 villages located in 65 counties of rural China (1). A wide variety ofExpand
Dietary Fiber Intake and Colon Cancer Mortality in The People’s Republic of China
TLDR
There are many unresolved questions concerning the relationship between dietary fiber and cancer of the large bowel and it would appear to be inappropriate to put too much emphasis on the effects of individual fiber fractions not only because of uncertainties of intake but also because the intakes of individual fibers are strongly correlated with each other.

Health aspects of vegetarian diets.
  • J. Dwyer
  • Medicine
  • The American journal of clinical nutrition
  • 1988
TLDR
Data are strong that vegetarians are at lesser risk for obesity, atonic constipation, lung cancer, and alcoholism and that risks of breast cancer, diverticular disease of the colon, colonic cancer, calcium kidney stones, osteoporosis, dental erosion, and dental caries are lower among vegetarians. Expand
Dietary fat and the regulation of energy intake in human subjects.
TLDR
It is suggested that habitual, unrestricted consumption of low-fat diets may be an effective approach to weight control. Expand
Dietary fat and fiber in relation to risk of breast cancer. An 8-year follow-up.
TLDR
Evidence is provided against both an adverse influence of fat intake and a protective effect of fiber consumption by middle-aged women on breast cancer incidence over 8 years, and the positive association between intake of animal fat and risk of colon cancer observed in many studies provides ample reason to limit this source of energy. Expand
Impact of variation in carbohydrate intake on mineral utilization by vegetarians.
TLDR
Dietary intakes of two groups of vegetarians residing in the United States were compared with intakes of a group of nonvegetarians and mineral intakes and balances were determined. Expand
Nutritional status of vegetarian children.
TLDR
The nutritional difficulties discovered could be corrected by careful planning of vegetarian children's diets while preserving the beneficial qualities of the diet in other respects. Expand
Diet and Chronic Degenerative Diseases
TLDR
In 1983, a cross-sectional survey of diet, lifestyle, and disease mortality characteristics was carried out in 130 villages located in 65 counties of rural China, yielding 367 items of information on each of 6500 adults aged 35–64 years. Expand
Nonassociation of aflatoxin with primary liver cancer in a cross-sectional ecological survey in the People's Republic of China.
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.
