Dietary approaches for management of cardio-vascular health- a review

TLDR
Recent research indicates that foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidant vitamins and fibres may be beneficial for cardio-vascular health, which suggests that cardiac health needs protection.

Dietary fats and breast cancer risk

TLDR
Marine n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids are associated with reduced breast cancer risk and these fatty acids have been linked to a lower risk of certain types of breast cancer.

The relation of saturated fatty acids with low-grade inflammation and cardiovascular disease.

Association of dietary fatty acids and the incidence risk of cardiovascular disease in adults: the Tehran Lipid and Glucose Prospective Study

TLDR
The results suggest that the dietary fatty acid composition might affect the incidence risk of CVD within the Iranian population.

Mixed Nut Consumption May Improve Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factors in Overweight and Obese Adults

TLDR
It is suggested that supplementing the diet with mixed-nuts could improve CVD risk factors by improving BW and glucose regulation in comparison to a common carbohydrate-rich snack without promoting the negative effects on lipids detected with pretzels.

STANDING COMMITTEE ON THE SCIENTIFIC EVALUATION OF DIETARY REFERENCE INTAKES

TLDR
Biorhythms and possible central regulation of magnesium status, phototherapy, darkness therapy and chronopathological forms of magnesium depletion, and effects on glutathione peroxidase, clinical safety, and absorption of selenium are studied.

Optimal diets for prevention of coronary heart disease.

TLDR
Substantial evidence indicates that diets using nonhydrogenated unsaturated fats as the predominant form of dietary fat, whole grains as the main form of carbohydrates, an abundance of fruits and vegetables, and adequate omega-3 fatty acids can offer significant protection against CHD.

Fish consumption and cardiovascular disease in the physicians' health study: a prospective study.

TLDR
Data do not support the hypothesis that moderate fish consumption lowers the risk of cardiovascular disease, and the relative risks were similar for omega 3 fatty acid intake and for specific types of fish, and did not change after adjustment.

Major Dietary Protein Sources and Risk of Coronary Heart Disease in Women

TLDR
It is suggested that high red meat intake increases risk of CHD and that CHD risk may be reduced importantly by shifting sources of protein in the US diet.

Dietary fat intake and the risk of coronary heart disease in women.

TLDR
It is suggested that replacing saturated and trans unsaturated fats with unhydrogenated monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats is more effective in preventing coronary heart disease in women than reducing overall fat intake.
