The Role of Diet in the Prevention and Treatment of Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
When whole-food, evidence-based approaches are utilized, risk factor reduction includes both the well-characterized CVD risk factors and emerging and yet to be discovered risk pathways. Expand
The Mediterranean Diet Versus a Low-Fat Diet, Cardiovascular Risk Factors, and Obesity
TLDR
Comparisons between a low-fat diet and MedD regarding their effects in decreasing obesity and protecting against heart disease risk as supported by epidemiological data and clinical interventions are focused on. Expand
Fat and Bone
TLDR
The chapter focuses on the direct and indirect influence of fat on bone mass development and maintenance and the mechanisms of fat action on bone are discussed. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
The relation of saturated fatty acids with low-grade inflammation and cardiovascular disease.
TLDR
Research regarding this heterogenic group of fatty acids and the mechanisms relating them to (chronic) systemic low-grade inflammation, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and notably CVD are summarized. Expand
Dietary Fats in Relation to Total and Cause-Specific Mortality in a Prospective Cohort of 521 120 Individuals With 16 Years of Follow-Up
TLDR
Dietary intake of marine omega-3 PUFAs and replacing SFAs with plant MUFAs or linoleic acid were associated with lower total, CVD, and certain cause-specific mortality, whereas it was positively associated with SFA, trans-fatty acid, and arachidonic acid intake. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Dietary fats and cardiovascular disease: putting together the pieces of a complicated puzzle.
TLDR
The total matrix of a food is more important than just its fatty acid content in predicting the effect of aFood on CVD risk, and a healthy diet should be the cornerstone of CVD prevention. Expand

Four hundred fifty-eight men with coronary heart disease participated in a trial of secondary prevention for 2 to 7 years. Overall five year survival was 81%. For those with first heart attacks itExpand

TLDR
Evidence that the intake of trans-fatty acids formed by the hydrogenation of oils should be reduced as they are associated with CHD and Hypolipidaemic drugs may be useful for persons at very high risk of CHD but should generally be avoided for primary prevention. Expand
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. Expand
Dietary fat intake and risk of coronary heart disease in women: 20 years of follow-up of the nurses' health study.
TLDR
Findings continue to support an inverse relation between polyunsaturated fat intake and CHD risk, particularly among younger or overweight women, and trans-fat intake was associated with increased risk of CHD, particularly for younger women. Expand
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. Expand

TLDR
The associations suggest that replacing SFAs with PUFAs rather than MUFAs or carbohydrates prevents CHD over a wide range of intakes. Expand
