Do Eggs Cause Heart Disease?

October 28, 2016

Read the original article from the UNC Chapel Hill Nutrition Research Institute. Several recent studies linked increased levels of a metabolic product of dietary choline with higher risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) (Wang et al., 2011; Tanget al., 2013) through a mechanism that involved gut microbiota-produced trimethylamine oxide (TMAO). These studies have sparked considerable scientific […]

Pinpointing Individual Susceptibility for Heart Disease

March 29, 2015

Summary: Brian Bennett, PhD, with the UNC Nutrition Research Institute at the NC Research Campus in Kannapolis is developing new scientific approaches to uncover individual susceptibility to heart disease. Eat a healthy and balanced diet. That is the first advice that people who need to reduce their risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) receive. But what […]
