Every year, more young people start the slow progressive injury that eventually becomes cardiovascular disease and death. It could be prevented with nutrition education, but medical efforts focus more on treatments for older people than on preventing primary causes of disease in young people. Two avoidable risks are prevented by simple dietary interventions: (1) Eat more omega‐3 and less omega‐6 fats, so tissues have less intense n‐6 eicosanoid action, and (2) eat less food per meal to lower… 
Preventing Diet Induced Disease: Bioavailable Nutrient-Rich, Low-Energy-Dense Diets
TLDR
Primary prevention of cardiovascular disease and mental ill health starts, crucially, with maternal nutrition before the inception of pregnancy and continues throughout life of the new born and includes consuming more DHA and EPA omega-3 fats and other bioavailable brain nutrients and less high-energy-dense foods.
The cardio-protective diet
TLDR
Modification in dietary habits by educating the society, proper food labelling and legal regulation, restricting calorie, sugar, saturated fat, trans-fat and salt intake has proved its benefits in the developed world.
Healthy dietary patterns, lipids and inflammation in human randomized controlled trials
TLDR
This thesis aimed to investigate the role of healthy dietary patterns on lipids and inflammation with special focus on fat quality in populations with cardiometabolic risk, and found that exchanging food products with improved fat quality reduced total and LDL cholesterol and increased the serum levels of bile acid, but did not detect an effect on circulating inflammatory markers.
Dietary and Policy Priorities for Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes, and Obesity: A Comprehensive Review
TLDR
This review considers the history, new evidence, controversies, and corresponding lessons for modern dietary and policy priorities for cardiovascular diseases, obesity, and diabetes mellitus, and identifies major identified themes.

TLDR
Health insurers could reduce costs and revolutionize preventive health care by monitoring omega-3 and omega-6 proportions in blood fatty acids and by using personalized interactive food choice software to adjust food intakes to fit individual preferences.
Mozaffarian Dietary and Policy Priorities
TLDR
This review considers the history, new evidence, controversies, and corresponding lessons for modern dietary and policy priorities for cardiovascular diseases, obesity, and diabetes mellitus, and major identified themes include the importance of evaluating the full diversity of diet-related risk pathways.

ω-6 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids and Cardiometabolic Health: Current Evidence, Controversies, and Research Gaps
TLDR
Findings from intervention studies on cardiometabolic risk factors suggest that ω-6 PUFAs reduce concentrations of LDL cholesterol and non-HDL cholesterol in a dose-dependent manner compared with dietary carbohydrate, and have a neutral effect on blood pressure.
Optimizing Dietary Fat to Reduce Breast Cancer Risk: Are we there Yet?
TLDR
The goal of this review is to assess epidemiological, animal and cellular studies with respect to the role of dietary long chain fatty acids in breast cancer risk and evaluate the current dietary fat recommendations with Respect to these findings.
The science of fatty acids and inflammation.
TLDR
The evidence suggests that saturated fatty acids induce inflammation in part by mimicking the actions of lipopolysaccharide, and the often-repeated claim that dietary linoleic acid promotes inflammation was not supported in a recent systematic review of the evidence.

FUNCTIONAL FOODS IN PRIMARY PREVENTION OR NUTRACEUTICALS IN SECONDARY PREVENTION
TLDR
The risk factor for this major worldwide killer is closely associated with observed mortality rates and is predicted from daily intakes of essential fatty acids and can be modified easily by individuals carefully choosing available foods.

Diets could prevent many diseases
TLDR
The 2002 ISSFAL Meeting arranged a special evening discussion with professional dietitians about diet-tissue-disease relationships involving essential fatty acids and eicosanoids, and an innovative, interactive diet planning software program with the empirical equation embedded in it was introduced.
Relations between n-3 fatty acid status and cardiovascular disease risk factors among Quebecers.
TLDR
The results indicate that concentrations of EPA and DHA in plasma phospholipids reflected Quebecer fish consumption and show that EPA and the ratio of EPA to arachidonic acid can positively influence HDL-cholesterol concentrations.

Fish consumption, fish oil, omega-3 fatty acids, and cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
Evidence from epidemiological studies and RCTs will be reviewed, and recommendations reflecting the current state of knowledge will be made with regard to both fish consumption and omega-3 fatty acid (plant- and marine-derived) supplementation.
n-3 Fatty acids and cardiovascular disease risk factors among the Inuit of Nunavik.
TLDR
The traditional Inuit diet, which is rich in n-3 fatty acids, is probably responsible for the low mortality rate from ischemic heart disease in this population, and appears to beneficially affect some cardiovascular disease risk factors.
Natural history and risk factors of atherosclerosis in children and youth: the PDAY study.
TLDR
The PDAY study confirmed the origin of Atherosclerosis in childhood, showed that progression toward clinically significant lesions may occur in young adulthood and demonstrated that the progression of atherosclerosis is strongly influenced by coronary heart disease (CHD) risk factors.
