    Kousa A, Havulinna AS, Moltchanova E, Taskinen O, Nikkarinen M, Eriksson J, Karvonen M.
    Environ Health Perspect. 2006 May;114(5):730-4.

    PMID: 16675428

    Results of this study with specific Bayesian statistical analysis support earlier findings of a protective role of Mg and low Ca:Mg ratio against coronary heart disease but do not support the earlier hypothesis of a protective role of Ca

    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

    High dietary methionine intake increases the risk of acute coronary events in middle-aged men.
    Virtanen JK, Voutilainen S, Rissanen TH, Happonen P, Mursu J, Laukkanen JA, Poulsen H, Lakka TA, Salonen JT.
    Nutr Metab Cardiovasc Dis. 2006 Mar;16(2):113-20. Epub 2005 Nov 2.
    PMID: 16487911
    doi:10.1016/j.numecd.2005.05.005

    Conclusions
    The main finding of this study is that long-term, moderately high dietary methionine intake may increase the risk of acute coronary events in middle-aged Finnish men free of prior CHD. More prospective research is needed to confirm the role of dietary methionine in the development of CVD, and whether its effects are independent of homocysteine.

    Effect of soy protein varying in isoflavone content on serum lipids in healthy young men.
    McVeigh BL, Dillingham BL, Lampe JW, Duncan AM.
    Am J Clin Nutr. 2006 Feb;83(2):244-51.
    PMID: 16469981

    Conclusion: Soy protein, regardless of isoflavone content, modulates serum lipid ratios in a direction beneficial for cardiovascular disease risk in healthy young men.

NEJM -- Low-Carbohydrate-Diet Score and the Risk of Coronary Heart Disease in Women - 0 views

  •  
    Low-carbohydrate-diet score and the risk of coronary heart disease in women.
    Halton TL, Willett WC, Liu S, Manson JE, Albert CM, Rexrode K, Hu FB.
    N Engl J Med. 2006 Nov 9;355(19):1991-2002.
    PMID: 17093250

    Conclusions Our findings suggest that diets lower in carbohydrate and higher in protein and fat are not associated with increased risk of coronary heart disease in women. When vegetable sources of fat and protein are chosen, these diets may moderately reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

    Conjugated linoleic acid impairs endothelial function.
    Taylor JS, Williams SR, Rhys R, James P, Frenneaux MP.
    Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 2006 Feb;26(2):307-12. Epub 2005 Dec 8.
    PMID: 16339498

    CONCLUSIONS: A CLA isomeric mixture had at most modest effects on adiposity and worsened endothelial function. On the basis of these results, the use of the isomeric mixture of CLA as an aid to weight loss cannot be recommended

    Effects of dairy products naturally enriched with cis-9,trans-11 conjugated linoleic acid on the blood lipid profile in healthy middle-aged men.

    Am J Clin Nutr. 2006 Apr;83(4):744-53.
    PMID: 16600923

    CONCLUSION: Dairy products naturally enriched with cis-9,trans-11 CLA and trans-11 18:1 do not appear to have a significant effect on the blood lipid profile

    Ahuja KD, Ball MJ.
    Br J Nutr. 2006 Aug;96(2):239-42.
    PMID: 16923216

    In conclusion, regular consumption of chilli for 4 weeks increases the resistance of serum lipoproteins to oxidation.

    Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 concentrations and carotid artery intima-media thickness among type 2 diabetic patients.
    Targher G, Bertolini L, Padovani R, Zenari L, Scala L, Cigolini M, Arcaro G.
    Clin Endocrinol (Oxf). 2006 Nov;65(5):593-7.
    PMID: 17054459
    DOI: 10.1111/j.1365-2265.2006.02633.x

    CONCLUSIONS: Hypovitaminosis D is highly prevalent in type 2 diabetic adults and is strongly and independently associated with increased carotid IMT. Further investigation into whether vitamin D may play a role in the prevention of atherosclerosis appears to be warranted.

    In conclusion, our results show that type 2 diabetic adults have significant reductions in serum 25(OH)D concentrations (vs matched controls) that predict preclinical atherosclerosis, independent of classical risk factors, renal function tests, inflammatory markers, use of medications and presence of the metabolic syndrome. These findings suggest the need for ongoing evaluation of the possible protective role of vitamin D3 supplementation in the development of atherosclerosis.

    Separate effects of reduced carbohydrate intake and weight loss on atherogenic dyslipidemia -- Krauss et al. 83 (5): 1025 -- American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
    Changes in peak LDL diameter (Table 2) and mass concentrations of LDL subfractions (Table 3) induced by each of the diets were reflected by changes in the proportions of subjects exhibiting LDL subclass pattern B (Figure 2). There were linear reductions in the prevalence of pattern B as a function of reduced carbohydrate intake after both the stable-weight and weight-loss periods. However, the slopes of these relations differed (P = 0.04) such that the magnitude of the reduction in expression of pattern B induced by weight loss increased in association with the percentage of carbohydrate intake.

    Conclusions: Moderate carbohydrate restriction and weight loss provide equivalent but nonadditive approaches to improving atherogenic dyslipidemia. Moreover, beneficial lipid changes resulting from a reduced carbohydrate intake were not significant after weight loss.

    Separate effects of reduced carbohydrate intake and weight loss on atherogenic dyslipidemia.
    Krauss RM, Blanche PJ, Rawlings RS, Fernstrom HS, Williams PT.
    Am J Clin Nutr. 2006 May;83(5):1025-31; quiz 1205. Erratum in: Am J Clin Nutr. 2006 Sep;84(3):668.
