Specifics relating to the development of heart disease and disease mechanisms
Clinical, hemodynamic and metabolic parameters were investigated for 42 patients with coronary heart disease, after myocardial infarct, recieved selective beta-adrenoblockers. Patients were divided in two groups. The first group (24 patients) were given methoprolol (50 mg/daily) and antiatherogenic lacto vegetarian diet, the second (18 patients)--methoprolol (50 mg/daily) and standard mixed antiatherogenic diet. After the treatment, positive changes clinical and gemodynamic parameters were observed in both groups of patients.
OBJECTIVE:This study aims to ascertain the relationships between mineral consumption, hair mineral content, and blood pressure. METHODS:The study involved 26 postmenopausal women from enclosed religious communities, 14 were semi-vegetarians and 12 were omnivores. Mineral dietary assessment was performed using a 14-d precise weight method and Food tables. Hair mineral levels were measured by means Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (ICP-MS) and Inductively Coupled Plasma Atomic Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES).
Dyslipidemia is a primary risk factor for cardiovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease, and stroke. Current guidelines recommend diet as first-line therapy for patients with elevated plasma cholesterol concentrations. However, what constitutes an optimal dietary regimen remains a matter of controversy. Large prospective trials have demonstrated that populations following plant-based diets, particularly vegetarian and vegan diets, are at lower risk for ischemic heart disease mortality.
The articles included in this library are original, peer-reviewed research papers, also known as "primary sources". Peer-reviewed papers are those published in journals who use a committee of other scientists to carefully review the author's study methods, analysis, and conclusions, and to provide feedback for improvements before publication. The result are papers whose authors who are rigorously held accountable for their statements. Click here for a list of inclusion criteria.

Pursuing professional training or graduate work is a challenging path - and it can be even more challenging if you're interested in pursuing something as unusual as plant-based nutrition!
