Published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (#AJCN)... Association of Dietary Cholesterol and Egg Intakes with the Risk of Incident Dementia or Alzheimer Disease: the Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Risk Factor Study
There is little information about the associations cholesterol and egg intake, a major source of dietary cholesterol, with the risk of cognitive decline in general populations. The authors of this study investigated the associations of cholesterol and egg intakes with incident dementia, Alzheimer disease, and cognitive performance in middle-aged and older men from Eastern Finland.
They found that neither cholesterol nor egg intake is associated with an increased risk of incident dementia or Alzheimer's disease. Instead, moderate egg intake may have a beneficial association with certain areas of cognitive performance.
JUST PUBLISHED IN CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS IN NUTRITION (#CDN)... Association of Pasta Consumption with Diet Quality and Nutrients of Public Health Concern in Adults: National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2009-2012
Pasta is a commonly consumed food in the United States; however, little is known about pasta consumption and nutrient intake and diet quality. The authors of this study examined the association between pasta consumption and diet quality, using cross-sectional data analysis of 10,697 U.S. adults from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2009-2012, a nationally representative survey
The authors found that different dietary patterns exist with regard to pasta consumption. These pasta patterns contribute in different ways to diet quality and intakes of fiber, sodium, and potassium. Therefore, it is critical to separate types of pasta/pasta dishes before relating to dietary intakes.
