  •  
    Intake of fish and n3 fatty acids and risk of coronary heart disease among Japanese: the Japan Public Health Center-Based (JPHC) Study Cohort I.
    Iso H, Kobayashi M, Ishihara J, Sasaki S, Okada K, Kita Y, Kokubo Y, Tsugane S; JPHC Study Group.
    Circulation. 2006 Jan 17;113(2):195-202. Epub 2006 Jan 9.
    PMID: 16401768
    doi: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.105.581355

    Conclusions- Compared with a modest fish intake of once a week or &20 g/d, a higher intake was associated with substantially reduced risk of coronary heart disease, primarily nonfatal cardiac events, among middle-aged persons

    Fish oil-derived fatty acids, docosahexaenoic acid and docosapentaenoic acid, and the risk of acute coronary events: the Kuopio ischaemic heart disease risk factor study.
    Rissanen T, Voutilainen S, Nyyssönen K, Lakka TA, Salonen JT.
    Circulation. 2000 Nov 28;102(22):2677-9.
    PMID: 11094031

    Methods and Results-We studied this association in the Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Risk Factor Study, a prospective population study in Eastern Finland. Subjects were randomly selected and included 1871 men aged 42 to 60 years who had no clinical coronary heart disease at baseline examination. A total of 194 men had a fatal or nonfatal acute coronary event during follow-up. In a Cox proportional hazards' model adjusting for other risk factors, men in the highest fifth of the proportion of serum DHA+DPA in all fatty acids had a 44% reduced risk (P=0.014) of acute coronary events compared with men in the lowest fifth. Men in the highest fifth of DHA+DPA who had a low hair content of mercury (<=2.0 µg />2.0 µg/g). There was no association between proportion of eicosapentaenoic acid and the risk of acute coronary events.

    Conclusions-Our data provide further confirmation for the concept that fish oil-derived fatty acids reduce the risk of acute coronary events. However, a high mercury content in fish could attenuate this protective effect.

Clinical Prevention of Sudden Cardiac Death by n-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids and Mech... - 0 views

  •  
    Clinical prevention of sudden cardiac death by n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and mechanism of prevention of arrhythmias by n-3 fish oils.
    Leaf A, Kang JX, Xiao YF, Billman GE.
    Circulation. 2003 Jun 3;107(21):2646-52. Review.
    PMID: 12782616
    doi: 10.1161/01.CIR.0000069566.78305.33

    This review will be limited specifically to the beneficial prevention by the n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) of arrhythmic deaths, including sudden cardiac death, which annually causes some 300 000 deaths in the United States and millions more worldwide. We will also show that the growing body of positive clinical studies is supported by what has been learned in animal and laboratory studies regarding the mechanism by which n-3 PUFAs prevent cardiac arrhythmias.

  •  
    Fish intake and risk of incident atrial fibrillation.
    Mozaffarian D, Psaty BM, Rimm EB, Lemaitre RN, Burke GL, Lyles MF, Lefkowitz D, Siscovick DS.
    Circulation. 2004 Jul 27;110(4):368-73. Epub 2004 Jul 19.
    PMID: 15262826
    doi: 10.1161/01.CIR.0000138154.00779.A5

    Conclusions- Among elderly adults, consumption of tuna or other broiled or baked fish, but not fried fish or fish sandwiches, is associated with lower incidence of AF. Fish intake may influence risk of this common cardiac arrhythmia.

    Cardiac benefits of fish consumption may depend on the type of fish meal consumed: the Cardiovascular Health Study.
    Mozaffarian D, Lemaitre RN, Kuller LH, Burke GL, Tracy RP, Siscovick DS; Cardiovascular Health Study.
    Circulation. 2003 Mar 18;107(10):1372-7.
    PMID: 12642356
    doi: 10.1161/01.CIR.0000055315.79177.16

    Conclusions- Among adults aged >=65 years, modest consumption of tuna or other broiled or baked fish, but not fried fish or fish sandwiches, is associated with lower risk of IHD death, especially arrhythmic IHD death. Cardiac benefits of fish consumption may vary depending on the type of fish meal consumed.

  •  
    Effect of fish oil on heart rate in humans: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.
    Mozaffarian D, Geelen A, Brouwer IA, Geleijnse JM, Zock PL, Katan MB.
    Circulation. 2005 Sep 27;112(13):1945-52. Epub 2005 Sep 19.
    PMID: 16172267
    doi: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.105.556886

    Conclusions- In randomized controlled trials in humans, fish oil reduces HR, particularly in those with higher baseline HR or longer treatment duration. These findings provide firm evidence that fish oil consumption directly or indirectly affects cardiac electrophysiology in humans. Potential mechanisms such as effects on the sinus node, ventricular efficiency, or autonomic function deserve further investigation.

    PMID: 12600905
    doi: 10.1161/01.CIR.0000050626.25057.51

    Conclusions- These data replicate our 3-year findings confirming that the supplementation with combination of vitamin E and slow-release vitamin C slows down atherosclerotic progression in hypercholesterolemic persons.

    Circulation. 2009 Dec 8;120(23):2315-21. Epub 2009 Nov 23.
    PMID: 19933935
    doi: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.109.852657

    Conclusions- An increased concentration of long-chain n-3 PUFAs in serum, a marker of fish or fish oil consumption, may protect against AF. Serum docosahexaenoic acid concentration had the greatest impact

CLA-rich cheese may boost heart health: Study - 0 views

  •  
    Consuming cheese from ewe's milk, rich in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), may reduce markers linked to heart disease, suggest results from a small Italian study.
    Researchers from the University of Florence report that ewe's milk rich in cis-9, trans-11 CLA produced favourable changes in inflammatory cytokines and platelet aggregation, both of which are associated with atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries due to the build-up of fatty deposits on artery walls.

    Egg consumption and risk of heart failure in the Physicians' Health Study.
    Djoussé L, Gaziano JM.
    Circulation. 2008 Jan 29;117(4):512-6. Epub 2008 Jan 14.
    PMID: 18195171
    doi: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.107.734210

    CONCLUSIONS: Our data suggest that infrequent egg consumption is not associated with the risk of HF. However, egg consumption of > or = 1 per day is related to an increased risk of HF among US male physicians.

    Scientists have long known that a lack of vitamin D can weaken our bones. A new study shows that low levels of this nutrient may also be linked to a higher chance of dying early from heart and circulation problems, as well as other causes.
