Background: A work environment that is exposed to heavy metals, such as a coal mining environment, can change fat metabolism in the body. Changes in fat metabolism will lead to cardiovascular disease. Consumption of dairy products, e.g. whey protein, can reduce the risk of metabolic disorders and cardiovascular disease. Objectives: To test and analyze the differences in triglyceride levels before and after whey protein intervention to field workers with different working conditions. Materials…

The collective view of current scientific literature indicates that the consumption of whey protein may have beneficial effects on some symptoms of the metabolic syndrome as well as a reduction in cardiovascular risk factors.

Effect of administration of fermented milk containing whey protein concentrate to rats and healthy men on serum lipids and blood pressure.

The effect of fermented milk supplemented with whey protein concentrate on the serum lipid level of rats was investigated. The serum total cholesterol level for the group fed fermented milk with both

Physical Activity and Lipid Profile in the ELSA-Brasil Study

The findings reinforce the benefits of both PA parameters studied on HDL and TG levels, with a slight advantage for vigorous PA as compared to the recommendation based only on PA duration.

Exposure to moderate arsenic concentrations increases atherosclerosis in ApoE-/- mouse model.

It is observed that chronic moderate arsenic exposure may be a greater cardiovascular health risk than previously anticipated, and the lower exposure concentration was more atherogenic than the higher concentration.

Chemical toxins: a hypothesis to explain the global obesity epidemic.

It is posited here that the earth's environment has changed significantly during the last few decades because of the exponential production and usage of synthetic organic and inorganic chemicals and these effects, together with a wide range of additional, possibly synergistic, factors may play a significant role in the worldwide obesity epidemic.

Diet and Lifestyle Recommendations Revision 2006: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association Nutrition Committee

Adhering to these diet and lifestyle recommendations, Americans can substantially reduce their risk of developing cardiovascular disease, which remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the United States.

Beneficial role of dietary phytoestrogens in obesity and diabetes.

Evidence is emerging that dietary phytoestrogens play a beneficial role in obesity and diabetes. Nutritional intervention studies performed in animals and humans suggest that the ingestion of soy
