BACKGROUND Plasma concentrations of vitamins A and E are positively correlated with those of concurrent lipids and, on the other hand, lipid levels are influenced by apolipoprotein E polymorphism. Therefore, the effect of this polymorphism on both vitamins was analysed in an adult population. MATERIALS AND METHODS Subjects were recruited from a working population. Their anthropometric, lifestyle and dietary intake variables and menopausal status were recorded. Their apolipoprotein E phenotype… CONTINUE READING
