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. Examining recursive diseases such as diabetes, stress, and hypertension, it reveals how nutrigenomics can alleviate imprinted cardiac weaknesses through tailored diets. Additional areas of discussion include nanotechnology in treating ischemic heart disease, along with drug, gene, and stem cell therapies.
