Abstract Changes in plasma catecholamines, lipoproteins and dietary intake were examined in 13 medical students during a 3-month period prior to their examinations, and in 12 controls. In the medical students mean +/- s.e.(mean) plasma cholesterol increased over the study period (3.98 +/- 0.16 v. 4.26 +/- 0.16 mmol/l, P less than 0.05) and this was reflected by a rise in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (2.53 +/- 0.15 v. 2.71 +/- 0.17 mmol/l, P less than 0.05). Both supine adrenaline (0.45 +/...

Abstract Older males are known to carry, more likely than younger people, one or more chronic diseases with an expected impact on mortality. This study was aimed at identifying the relationship of prevalent chronic diseases in elderly populations of different countries with all-cause mortality. Men aged 65–84 from defined areas were enrolled in Finland ( N =716), the Netherlands ( N =887) and Italy ( N =682). They were survivors of cohorts studied for 25 years within the Seven Countries Study. M...

For the last decade, the focus of nutritional advice for prevention of chronic disease has been to limit or reduce total fat intake and to consume large amounts of carbohydrate. However, this advice is inconsistent with many lines of evidence indicating that unsaturated fats have beneficial metabolic effects and reduce risk of coronary heart disease. More recent evidence has also shown that the large majority of carbohydrates in Western diets, consisting of refined starches and sugars, have adve...

The relationship between overweight and obesity and the risk of acute nonfatal myocardial infarction was analyzed, using data from a casecontrol study from Buenos Aires, Argentina. The study included 1000 patients with acute myocardial infarction and 1000 controls, who had been admitted to the same hospitals in which the cases had been identified, for acute conditions unrelated to known or potential risk factors for coronary heart disease. Only 32% of the cases and 41% of the controls had a Quet...

Abstract PURPOSE: The relationships between lipids/lipoproteins and atherosclerosis were determined in African Americans and whites to assess the consistency of the relationship between these two groups. Differences could suggest varying biological, environmental, or life-style cofactors influencing development of atherosclerosis. METHODS: In the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study, 2966 African Americans and 9399 whites had determinations of LDL, HDL, HDL2, and HDL3 cholesterol, triglycer...

Smoking has been associated with myocardial infarction, independently of its association with atherosclerotic lesions (1). Since coronary thrombosis is the proximate cause of acute myocardial infarction (2) as confirmed recently by the success of thrombolysis to reopen coronary arteries (3), smoking could act directly on the predisposition to thrombosis. Platelet reactivity seems to play a key role in the thrombotic tendency since, in a recent prospective study on 2500 subjects in Wales (5), asp...

Abstract Background Hypertension is related to significant morbidity and mortality rates from coronary heart disease (CHD). This report examines the relative and absolute impact on risk for CHD by controlling hypertension to high normal and optimal levels. Methods Among all subjects with untreated or inadequately treated hypertension in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) III who were 30 to 74 years of age and without prior CHD, the 10-year risk of CHD was calculated. W...

For answering the question, “Is taurine a preventive nutritional factor of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) or just a biological marker of nutrition?” our experimental and world-wide cooperative studies on nutrition and CVD are reviewed. The data so far obtained indicates taurine is not only a good biological marker of sea food intakes but also an important nutrient for preventing hypertension and atherosclerosis.
