Sex disparity persists in the prevention of cardiovascular disease in women on statin therapy compared to that in men
Conclusions Women were less likely to be prescribed high-intensity statin to achieve total cholesterol and LDL-C target levels, and mean doses of statin were lower in women than in men. Dyslipidemia is less closely controlled in women than in men. (Source: Nutrition, Metabolism and Cardiovascular Diseases)

High Irisin Levels in Overweight/Obese Children and Its Positive Correlation with Metabolic Profile, Blood Pressure and Endothelial Progenitor Cells
This study aimed to investigate the association between irisin level and anthropometric data, metabolic parameters, blood pressure, and endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) level among children with overweight/obesity. This study included 24 children with overweight/obesity (9 girls and 15 boys) and 63 children with normal weight (25 girls and 38 boys). The anthropometric data, blood pressure, blood biochemistry, EPCs and irisin levels were evaluated. Children with overweight/obesity had significantly higher circulating irisin and EPCs levels than those with normal weight (P<0.001). Additionally, we found that irisin...

Eat healthy? Attitudes of the German population towards industrially produced cardioprotective food
Conclusions The rising number of industrially modified products with potential cardioprotective benefit is met by skepticism and a lack of knowledge by German costumers. If large scale studies show health benefits of these products, these will need to be better communicated to German customers in order to address possible doubts or concerns and to encourage healthy eating habits in consumer eating behavior.

Obesity, weight change, and mortality in older adults with metabolic abnormalities
Conclusions Overweight was associated with less mortality risk and obesity was not associated with mortality risk in older adults with metabolic abnormalities. Mortality risk increased with the increase of weight loss or weight gain, regardless of body weight levels at baseline. These findings suggest that maintaining a stable weight may be the best choice in older adults with metabolic abnormalities. (Source: Nutrition, Metabolism and Cardiovascular Diseases)

A short-term increase in dietary cholesterol and fat intake affects high-density lipoprotein composition in healthy subjects
Conclusion In healthy subjects, a short-term elevation in dietary cholesterol and fat intake increased HDL lipid hydroperoxide content (15-HETE, 5-HETE, 13-HODE) and SAA levels, which are key features of dysfunctional HDL. This is the first study showing that a physiologic manipulation of dietary cholesterol and fat intake affects HDL lipidome and proteome in healthy subjects independently of weight changes.
