High intake of animal-based diets may increase an individual’s susceptibility to inflammatory bowel disease.
Increased dietary exposure to choline, betaine, and trimethylamine-N-oxide (TMAO) predisposes cardiovascular disease patients to adverse cardiac events, such heart failure.
High serum concentrations of TMAO are associated with high incidence of renal disorders and mortality.
Diets rich in fats may impair endothelial function in both coronary artery disease (CAD) patients and healthy individuals.
Contrary to popular belief, red wine may not have any beneficial effect on endothelial function and cardiovascular health.
Increased risk of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is associated with high exposure to organophosphate pesticides.
The anti-oxidant and anti-inflammation activities of the phytochemicals in whole grains may confer significant protection against the development and progression of type 2 diabetes.
High consumption of low-fat, high complex carbohydrate diets is associated with healthy weight and lipid profile in overweight metabolic syndrome patients.
Low serum concentrations of ALT, GGT, and hs-CRP and high plasma levels of GGT and hs-CRP are associated with high consumption of whole-grain bread and red meat respectively.
Increased exposure to phthalate may elevate the risk of developing attention deficit disorder alone and both attention deficit disorder and learning disability in children.
