Formatted Abstract/Summary
Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in developed countries around the world, and has been the subject of much research. An accumulating body of evidence exists that supports diet and lifestyle modifications and its association with improvements in cardiovascular (CV) outcomes. Nut consumption has been a focus of study since the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet were established. Nuts, with their high content of monounsaturated fatty acids and polyunsaturated fatty acids as well as other bioactive compounds including several antioxidants, have been shown, in both epidemiologic and randomized clinical trials, to improve CV outcomes through their lipid lowering, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, vasoactive, and anti-arrhythmic effects.
