Presenting current research on epidemiological studies of cardiovascular diseases and the role of nutrition, this book highlights nutritional therapies including alpha-tocopherol, beta-carotene, fish oil, polyphenols, olive oil, retinol, and soy and discusses their relative benefit in diseases such as angina, atherosclerosis, heart attack, high blood pressure, and stroke.
