Polyunsaturated Fat Intake Estimated by Circulating Biomarkers and Risk of Cardiovascular Disease and All-Cause Mortality in a Population-Based Cohort of 60-Year-Old Men and Women

High intake of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and mortality. Large prospective studies including both sexes and circulating PUFA as dietary biomarkers are needed. We investigated sex-specific associations of major dietary PUFA; eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docohexaenoic acid (DHA), linoleic acid (LA), and α-linolenic acid (ALA), with incident CVD and all-cause mortality in a population-based cohort.
