brachial artery vasodilation tests' intra-vascular inflammation decreases as vegetable portions increase. The risk of CHD was decreased by 4% for each additional portion per day of fruit and vegetable intake and by 7% for fruit intake.

Those with highest blood levels of lutein had the healthiest blood vessels, with no atherosclerosis. (Lutein an indicator of green vegetable consumption.)

Beta blockers increase glucose intolerance and predispose to and worsen diabetes. Pseudo-anti-hypertensive effects; Systolic (higher number, goes up when heart pumps - we want this to be naturally low) and diastolic blood pressures (lower number, when heart relaxes; blood vessel should come in, making this number higher. but medication lower both systolic and diastolic, promoting irregular heart beat. Widened pulse pressure also predicts a higher risk of subsequent cardiovascular events, stroke, renal disease, heart failure, and mortality, particularly in the elderly.

Offspring study of Framingham heart study. "Urinary markers of oxidative stress found to correlate well with BMI diabetes, blood glucose and heart disease; low micronutrient eating promotes an inflammatory cascade underlying most disease that plague the modern world; excess calories, fat deposition and inadequate phytonutrients create a nation of cardiovascular-diseased individuals."

Hospitalizations for heart failure increased 23% for those with higher intake of eggs. 16% higher risk of hospitalization for higher intake of daily fat

Greens needed to activate NRF2 proteins (transcription factors), which prevents plaque adhesion--makes slippery. highest level of blood lutein have healthiest blood vessels with no atherosclerosis; (lutein level mostly a research tool.)

CASS Study follow-up: No better results 10 years after medicine+angioplasty than just medicine without angioplasty. The rate of survival was 86% 10 years after PTCA 9ANGIOPLASTY) compared with 85% after CABG (bypass) and 82% after medical treatment in patients from the CASS trial (p = NS). Survival free from myocardial infarction was 77% after coronary angioplasty, 70% after CABG, and 72% after medical treatment.

Angiotensin-receptor blockers (ARBs) treat high blood pressure. Meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials found that ARBs significantly increased (8%) risk of new diagnosis of any cancer, and 25% increased risk of lung cancer. Also, increased rates of sudden cardiac death, death from heart attack and death from stroke.

POISE (Perioperative Ischemic Evalatuion) trial conducted in 23 countries. 8351 patience randomized to meoprolol (beta-blocker) or placeba. After 30 days, mortality 3.1%, compared to 2.3. Also, double risk of stroke. Highly commented paper.
