How to live longer: Replacing red meat with plant foods could extend your life expectancy

LONG life expectancy could be achieved by following a plant-based diet, according to a recent study. The researchers found replacing red meat with beans, nuts or soy may be associated with a modestly reduced risk of coronary heart disease .

Herz. 2021 Sep 23. doi: 10.1007/s00059-021-05067-6. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe "fat hypothesis of coronary heart disease", according to which saturated fatty acids (SFA) increase the concentration of low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) and consequently increase the risk for cardiovascular diseases, influenced the nutritional recommendations over the last 60 years, initially in the USA and later also in Europe. Over the years there accumulated a growing body of evidence from epidemiology and controlled clinical studies that the consumption of SFA per se was not associated with an increased cardiovas...

AbstractTheAPOEε2/ε3/ε4 polymorphism is associated with multiple non-Mendelian traits, including high- (HDL-C) and low- (LDL-C) density lipoprotein cholesterol, triglycerides, body mass index (BMI), coronary heart disease (CHD), and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Lipids and BMI are risk factors for AD and CHD. Cau sal connections between the ε2 and ε4 alleles and these traits remain, however, poorly understood. We leverage comprehensive analyses of longitudinal data from four studies to examine potentially causal heterogeneous connections between these alleles, lipids, BMI, and dise...

CONCLUSION: A modest increase of CHD risk in individuals with higher serum anti-Pg and anti-Aa IgG antibody responses may support their use as potential biomarkers to detect and monitor at-risk populations. However, observed inconsistencies with the design and interpretation of immunoassays warrants standardisation of the immunoassays assessing antibody responses against periodontal bacteria.PMID:34545592 | DOI:10.1111/jcpe.13550

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAtherosclerotic heart disease remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The past few decades have seen the emergence of chronic inflammation as a mediator of atherosclerosis. Although the heart and vascular system remain the organ systems most affected in the atherosclerotic process, chronic inflammation and ischemia trigger a systemic multi-organ response. The liver is a critical organ for systemic hemostasis and recent developments have established an important role of the liver in response t...
