Fasting Whole Blood as a Biomarker of Essential Fatty Acid Intake in Epidemiologic Studies: Comparison with Adipose Tissue and Plasma
Biomarkers could provide a more accurate measure of long-term intake than questionnaires. Adipose tissue is considered the best indicator of long-term essential fatty acid intake, but other tissues may prove equally valid. ...
Decreased Consumption of Dried Mature Beans Is Positively Associated with Urbanization and Nonfatal Acute Myocardial Infarction
Legumes may protect against myocardial infarction (MI). The objective of this study was to determine whether consumption of dried mature beans (referred to as beans), the main legume in Latin America, is associated with ...
Individual saturated fatty acids and nonfatal acute myocardial infarction in Costa Rica
Background: Epidemiological studies on the effect of individual saturated fatty acids (SFAs) on cardiovascular disease, especially in developing countries with different dietary patterns, are scarce. Objective: To determine ...
Adipose tissue biomarkers of fatty acid intake
The use of biomarkers to assess dietary intake has increased dramatically in the past few years (1-7). Biomarkers may provide a more accurate and objective measure of long-term intake than dietary questionnaires provide ...
Transient exposure to coffee as a trigger of a first nonfatal myocardial infarction
Background: The effects of coffee on myocardial infarction are uncertain. We hypothesize that coffee in the presence of predisposing factors can induce a cascade of events that, through sympathetic nervous activation, ...
