The purpose of this paper is a review of updated evidence of a J-shaped association between alcohol consumption and the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) and all-cause mortality in relation to public health issues to create a basis for sensible individual health deliberations.,A review of the evidence from the first observation of a J-shaped association between a moderate alcohol intake and CHD in 1926 to recent studies of the effect of healthy lifestyles (including moderate alcohol intake) o...

Objectives: Identifying causal biomarkers of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) to improve treatment and monitor disease progression remains a critical but elusive goal. To search for putatively causal protein biomarkers of RA, we designed an integrative genomic strategy utilizing Mendelian randomization (MR), which allows for causal inference between an exposure and an outcome by incorporating genetic variants associated with an exposure (circulating protein level) and inferring its effect on the outcom...

: Dietary protein may help prevent age-related declines in strength and functional capacity. This study examines the independent relationship between dietary protein and longitudinal changes in physical functioning among adults participating in the Framingham Offspring Study from examination 5 (1991-1995) to examination 8 (2005-2008). Protein intakes were derived from 3-day diet records during examinations 3 and 5; functional status was determined over 12 years using 7 items selected from standa...

Summary Background & aims While a recent meta-analysis of prospective studies reported that coffee consumption is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease mortality, limited and inconsistent data are available on the relation of coffee intake with subclinical disease. Thus, the aim of the present study was to see the association of coffee consumption with the prevalence of atherosclerotic plaque in the coronary arteries in NHLBI Family Heart Study. Methods In a cross-sectional desi...

We evaluated weight loss among 623 over-weight (body mass index [calculated as weight in kilo-grams divided by the square of height in meters] 25)middle-aged(aged30-49years)and605overweightolder(aged 50-65 years) adults in Framingham, Mass. Sub-jects were classified first according to amount of weightlost over 4 years: (1) weight changed by less than 1.8 kg(stable weight), (2) lost 1.8 to less than 3.6 kg, (3) lost3.6 to less than 6.8 kg, and (4) lost 6.8 kg or more. Wealso classified weight los...

Objective—Studies have reported mixed findings on the association between physical activity and subclinical atherosclerosis. We sought to examine whether walking is associated with prevalent coronary artery calcification (CAC) and aortic calcification. Approach and Results—In a cross-sectional design, we studied 2971 participants of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Family Heart Study without a history of myocardial infarction, coronary artery bypass grafting, or percutaneous translu...

Objective Metabolic syndrome (MetS), characterized by abdominal obesity, atherogenic dyslipidaemia, elevated blood pressure and insulin resistance, is a major public health concern in the United States. The effects of apolipoprotein E (Apo E) polymorphism on MetS are not well established. Methods We conducted a cross-sectional study consisting of 1551 participants from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute Family Heart Study to assess the relation of Apo E polymorphism with the prevalence...
