Neither nutritional supplements nor moderately intense physical activity helped significantly.

Long-term Mediterranean and heart-healthy diets are associated with improved cognitive function, and some clinical trials of physical activity promotion also have resulted in improved function. Investigators now report the results of two randomized trials in which they examined the effects of diet supplementation and exercise interventions on cognition in older adults.

In the first study, researchers evaluated data from a trial of ω-3 fatty acids or lutein/zeaxanthin for preventing age-related macular degeneration; 3741 older adults (mean age, 73) were randomized to daily docosahexaenoic acid (350 mg) plus eicosapentaenoic acid (650 mg), daily lutein/zeaxanthin (10 mg/2 mg), both supplements, or double placebo. At a mean follow-up of 5 years, researchers found no differences among the groups in a detailed assessment of cognitive function, with similar annual declines in cognition for all groups.

In a multicenter trial, researchers randomized 635 sedentary older adults (mean age, 79) with no cognitive impairment to a structured class and home exercise program of walking and strength training or to weekly health-education sessions. The exercise group increased their self-reported weekly exercise by a mean 130 minutes, compared with a mean increase of 30 minutes for the health-education group. At 2 years, scores on a detailed cognitive assessment panel were not different between groups.

Paul S. Mueller, MD, MPH, FACPThe FDA is requiring all trans fat to be eliminated from foods by 2018.

For decades, clinicians have encouraged patients to consume diets low in saturated fat. However, emerging evidence suggests that saturated fat intake is not associated as clearly with health risks as we previously thought. In contrast, trans fat intake is associated unambiguously with elevated cardiovascular (CV) risk, which has prompted the FDA to declare that trans fat is “not generally recognized as safe” for use in human food and to set a 2018 deadline for food companies to eliminate trans fat from their products. In this meta-analysis of dozens of prospective observational studies, researchers assessed associations between saturated or trans fat intake and several health outcomes.

After adjustment for multiple variables, high intake of saturated fat (found in meat, eggs, milk products, salmon, chocolate, and palm oil) was not associated with excess risks for all-cause death, coronary heart disease (CHD)–related mortality, CV-related mortality, total CHD, ischemic stroke, or type 2 diabetes.

After adjustment for confounders, high total trans fat intake was associated with significant excess risks for all-cause death (relative risk, 1.3), CHD-related mortality (RR, 1.3), and total CHD (RR, 1.2).

Intake of industrial trans fat (found in processed foods) was associated with excess risks for CHD-related mortality (RR, 1.2) and total CHD (RR, 1.4), whereas intake of ruminant trans fat (produced in the gut of some grazing animals and comprising a small proportion of fat in dairy products, beef, and lamb) was associated with lower risk for type 2 diabetes (RR, 0.6).


Bruce Soloway, MD reviewing Kivimäki M et al. Lancet 2015 Aug 19.

Encouraging or requiring people to work longer hours could have substantial public health implications.

Two meta-analyses of published cohort studies have suggested that long working hours lead to excess risk for coronary heart disease (CHD). To explore this hypothesis further, researchers combined data from 25 prospective cohort studies from Europe, the U.S., and Australia that included data on working hours and incident CHD or stroke. The resulting data sets included more than 600,000 people who were followed for a mean 8.5 years for CHD and more than 500,000 people who were followed for a mean 7.2 years for stroke.

Compared with standard working hours (35–40 hours weekly), and after adjustment for age, sex, and socioeconomic status, long working hours (>55 hours weekly) were associated significantly with higher risk for incident CHD (relative risk, 1.13) and stroke (RR, 1.33). Risk for incident stroke increased linearly as working hours increased; no such dose-response relation was seen for CHD. Excess risk for CHD with longer working hours was more pronounced in patients with low than with high socioeconomic status; no other significant subgroup differences were found.
