Nutritional Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease presents studies on the important the role of nutrition in cardiovascular disease.
The book contains 37 chapters organized into four parts. Part I contains papers on experimental approaches to nutritional prevention of cardiovascular disease. These include studies on cellular mechanisms relating salt to hypertension; salt sensitivity in experimental animals and man; and the relationship between nutrition and cardiovascular disease in experimental animals. Part II presents epidemiological studies of regional differences in cardiovascular disease and dietary risk factors. These include coronary heart disease trends in Japan linked to dietary alterations; blood pressure and dietary factors among farmers in northern and southern China; and dietary factors of hypertension.
Part III focuses on clinical studies in nutritional prevention of cardiovascular disease. Topics covered include the role of dietary fat in regulating blood pressure and the effects of diet in mild hypertension. Part IV deals with dietary intervention for prevention of cardiovascular disease.
