Decreased coronary heart disease risk is associated with high consumption of whole grains.
Frequent consumption of nuts may significantly cut down cardiovascular disease and total mortality risk.
Increased dietary exposure to choline, betaine, and trimethylamine-N-oxide (TMAO) predisposes cardiovascular disease patients to adverse cardiac events, such heart failure.
Diets rich in fats may impair endothelial function in both coronary artery disease (CAD) patients and healthy individuals.
Postprandial angina pectoris is associated with severe coronary artery disease.
Trimethylamine-N-oxide (TMAO), a metabolite produced by intestinal microbes, is associated with elevated atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease risk.
Diets low on carbohydrates may increase total mortality risk.
Sodium consumption above 2g per day is one of the major causes of cardiovascular-related deaths worldwide. This study examined the effect of sodium consumption on global cardiovascular mortality. Researchers analyzed dietary and clinical data obtained from subjects in 66 countries. The blood pressure and cardiovascular mortality hazard ratios were assessed in all the subjects. Researchers...
High consumption of diets rich in monounsaturated fats may impair endothelial function in healthy individuals.
