The possible relationship between dietary cholesterol and cardiac outcomes has been scrutinized for decades. However, recent reviews of the literature have suggested that dietary cholesterol is not a nutrient of concern. Thus, we conducted a meta-analysis of egg intake (a significant contributor to dietary cholesterol) and risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke. A comprehensive literature search was conducted through August 2015 to identify prospective cohort studies that reported risk estimates for egg consumption in association with CHD or stroke...

Yogurt is a semisolid fermented milk product that originated centuries ago and is viewed as an essential food and important source of nutrients in the diet of humans. Over the last 30 years, overweight and obesity have become characteristic of Western and developing countries, which has led to deleterious health outcomes, including cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and other chronic conditions. Recent epidemiological and clinical evidence suggests that yogurt is involved in the control of body weight and energy homeostasis and may play a role in reducing the risk for type 2 diabetes partly via the replacement of less healthy foods in the diet, its food matrix, the effect of specific nutrients such as calcium and protein on appetite control and glycemia, and alteration in gut microbiota...

PURPOSE: Obesity is known as a chronic inflammatory state whereby anti-inflammatory adipokines, such as omentin-1 levels, are decreased. The present study aims to determine omentin-1 levels in relation to dietary intake, inflammation, and immune response in healthy obese individuals. METHOD: A total of 170 obese participants (body mass index [BMI] ≥ 30) were recruited in this cross-sectional study. Body composition was evaluated by a body composition analyzer, and inflammatory markers (high-sensitivity C-reactive protein [hs-CRP], interleukin (IL)-4, IL-6, IL-1β, IL-17, IL-10, IL-13, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha [TNF-α]) were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kits...
