    Mercury, fish oils, and risk of acute coronary events and cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease, and all-cause mortality in men in eastern Finland.
    Virtanen JK, Voutilainen S, Rissanen TH, Mursu J, Tuomainen TP, Korhonen MJ, Valkonen VP, Seppänen K, Laukkanen JA, Salonen JT.
    Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 2005 Jan;25(1):228-33. Epub 2004 Nov 11.
    PMID: 15539625
    doi: 10.1161/01.ATV.0000150040.20950.61

    Conclusions- High content of mercury in hair may be a risk factor for acute coronary events and CVD, CHD, and all-cause mortality in middle-aged eastern Finnish men. Mercury may also attenuate the protective effects of fish on cardiovascular health.

    Mercury may increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases. In this study, high mercury content in hair increased the risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in middle-aged Finnish men and attenuated the beneficial effects of fish oils on cardiovascular health. Regular consumption of fish with high mercury content should be avoided.

    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.

Fish consumption and risk of subclinical brain abnormalities on MRI in older adults - 0 views

    Fish consumption and risk of subclinical brain abnormalities on MRI in older adults.
    Virtanen JK, Siscovick DS, Longstreth WT Jr, Kuller LH, Mozaffarian D.
    Neurology. 2008 Aug 5;71(6):439-46.
    PMID: 18678827
    doi: 10.1212/01.wnl.0000324414.12665.b0

    Conclusions:
    Among older adults, modest consumption of tuna/other fish, but not fried fish, was associated with lower prevalence of subclinical infarcts and white matter abnormalities on MRI examinations. Our results add to prior evidence that suggest that dietary intake of fish with higher eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid content, and not fried fish intake, may have clinically important health benefits

Fish consumption and risk of major chronic disease in men -- Virtanen et al. 88 (6): 16... - 0 views

  •  
    Fish consumption and risk of major chronic disease in men.
    Virtanen JK, Mozaffarian D, Chiuve SE, Rimm EB.
    Am J Clin Nutr. 2008 Dec;88(6):1618-25.
    PMID: 19064523
    doi:10.3945/ajcn.2007.25816

    Conclusions: Modest fish consumption was associated with a lower risk of total cardiovascular disease, consistent with cardiac mortality benefits but not with total cancer or overall major chronic disease; n-6 fatty acid consumption did not influence these relations.

    Glycemic index, glycemic load, and the risk of acute myocardial infarction in Finnish men: The Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Risk Factor Study.
    Mursu J, Virtanen JK, Rissanen TH, Tuomainen TP, Nykänen I, Laukkanen JA, Kortelainen R, Voutilainen S.
    Nutr Metab Cardiovasc Dis. 2009 Oct 14. [Epub ahead of print]
    PMID: 19836217
    doi:10.1016/j.numecd.2009.08.001

    Conclusions
    Our results suggest that both high dietary GI and GL are associated with increased risk of AMI among overweight and GL possibly among less physically active men.

    Serum Long-Chain n-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids and Risk of Hospital Diagnosis of Atrial Fibrillation in Men.
    Virtanen JK, Mursu J, Voutilainen S, Tuomainen TP.
    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
