Abstract: Basic research suggests that oxidative stress may play an important role in many chronic diseases and provides plausible mechanisms by which natural antioxidants such as vitamin E may delay or prevent steps in atherogenesis. Dietary research has shown that those who consume higher amounts of fruits and vegetables have lower rates of heart disease and stroke, raising the possibility that antioxidants are protective. Results from large‐scale human observational studies suggest that… Expand
The Role of Antioxidant Vitamins in Cardiovascular Disease
TLDR
Data from randomized clinical trials do not support the use of antioxidant vitamins in cardiovascular disease, and antioxidant vitamins should not be recommended to patients for prevention or treatment of cardiovascular disease. Expand
Antioxidants, oxidative stress, and cardiovascular diseases : cross-cultural comparisons and prospective cohort studies
TLDR
The findings on beta-carotene support previous observational studies suggesting that this carotenoid relates to a lower CVD risk, and may partly contribute to the low observed CHD mortality. Expand
Application of pharmacogenomics in the prevention of diabetic cardiovascular disease: mechanistic basis and clinical evidence for utilization of the haptoglobin genotype in determining benefit from antioxidant therapy.

TLDR
Supporting clinical evidence and a mechanistic basis for utilizing a genetic marker, the haptoglobin (Hp) genotype, in determining whether antioxidant vitamin therapy may or may not be beneficial for a given patient with diabetes are provided. Expand
Micronutrient Vitamin Deficiencies and Cardiovascular Disease Risk: Advancing Current Understanding
TLDR
Although MVD is a significant risk factor for CVDs, supplementation with single or paired micronutrients for primary prevention of CVDS in healthy adults with no special nutritional needs is discouraged; there is insufficient evidence to determine the benefit/harm of such supplementation. Expand
Nutrition and Stroke Prevention Cholesterol and Animal Fat Emerging Therapies
—Nutrition is much more important in prevention of stroke than is appreciated by most physicians. The powerful effects of statin drugs in lowering the levels of fasting cholesterol, combined with anExpand
Health benefits of nuts in prevention and management of diabetes.
TLDR
There are good reasons to justify the use of nuts in the prevention of diabetes and its micro- and macrovascular complications and the role of nuts on glycemic control in patients with prediabetes and diabetes. Expand
Mitochondria as possible pharmaceutical targets for the effects of vitamin E and its homologues in oxidative stress-related diseases.
TLDR
It is concluded in this large pooled prospective study, in which long-term vitamin E supplementation was associated with lower ALS rates, and therefore, a possible protective effect of vitamin E deserves further consideration. Expand
Dietary Approaches that Delay Age-Related Diseases
TLDR
The best diet to delay age-related disease onset is one low in calories and saturated fat and high in wholegrain cereals, legumes, fruits and vegetables, and which maintains a lean body weight. Expand
Essential Trace Element and Mineral Deficiencies and Cardiovascular Diseases: Facts and Controversies
TLDR
Evidence is explored in favor or against the role of minerals and trace elements in the pathogenesis, progression, management and endpoints of CVDs, and the discussion on some discrepant research findings is extended. Expand
Nutrition and Stroke Prevention
TLDR
A Cretan Mediterranean diet, which is high in beneficial oils, whole grains, fruits, and vegetables and low in cholesterol and animal fat, has been shown to reduce stroke and myocardial infarction by 60% in 4 years compared with the American Heart Association diet. Expand

Vitamin E consumption and the risk of coronary heart disease in men.
TLDR
Evidence is provided of an association between a high intake of vitamin E and a lower risk of coronary heart disease in men, and public policy recommendations with regard to the use ofitamin E supplements should await the results of additional studies. Expand
Antioxidant vitamin intake and coronary mortality in a longitudinal population study.
TLDR
The hypothesis that antioxidant vitamins protect against coronary heart disease is supported, but it cannot be excluded that foods rich in these micronutrients also contain other constituents that provide the protection. Expand
Vitamin E supplementation and cardiovascular events in high-risk patients.
TLDR
In patients at high risk for cardiovascular events, treatment with vitamin E for a mean of 4.5 years had no apparent effect on cardiovascular outcomes and there were no significant differences in the incidence of secondary cardiovascular outcomes or in death from any cause. Expand
Vitamin E consumption and the risk of coronary disease in women.
TLDR
It is suggested that among middle-aged women the use of vitamin E supplements is associated with a reduced risk of coronary heart disease. Expand
Dietary antioxidants and risk of myocardial infarction in the elderly: the Rotterdam Study.
TLDR
The hypothesis that high dietary beta-carotene intakes may protect against cardiovascular disease is supported by the results of this observational study in the elderly population of the Rotterdam Study. Expand
Alpha-Tocopherol Supplementation in Healthy Individuals Reduces Low-Density Lipoprotein Oxidation but Not Atherosclerosis: The Vitamin E Atherosclerosis Prevention Study (VEAPS)
TLDR
The results are consistent with previous randomized controlled trials and extend the null results of vitamin E supplementation to the progression of IMT in healthy men and women at low risk for CVD. Expand

TLDR
The present article describes the rationale, design, and methods of the Women's Antioxidant and Cardiovascular Study, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled secondary prevention trial of the balance of benefits and risks of antioxidant vitamins among 8000 women with preexisting CVD. Expand
Low Plasma Vitamins E and C Increased Risk of Angina in Scottish Men a
TLDR
Low plasma vitamin E or adipose linoleate predisposes to angina, and smoking may increase the risk of angina by lowering plasma vitamin C levels in Scottish men. Expand

TLDR
Data on baseline characteristics of the participants suggest that the present sample is close to the national population in terms of geographic density, socioeconomic status, and the distribution of various major risk factors for the diseases under study. Expand
Low-dose aspirin and vitamin E in people at cardiovascular risk: a randomised trial in general Practice
TLDR
In women and men at risk of having a cardiovascular event because of the presence of at least one major risk factor, low-dose aspirin given in addition to treatment of specific risk factors contributes an additional preventive effect, with an acceptable safety profile. Expand
