  1. 1. Dietary Patterns Identification and Health Implications in the Swedish Population

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Erika Ax; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dietary Pattern; Dietary Recommendations; Dietary Survey; Environmental Contaminants; Healthy Diet Indicator; Heatlhy dietary pattern; Low-Carbohydrate; Mediterranean diet; Nutritional Biomarkers; Obesity; Overweight; Principal Component Analysis; Prostate Cancer; Sweden; Traditional dietary pattern; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science; Nutrition; Nutrition;

    Abstract : We eat foods not nutrients. What is more, we eat them in combinations. Consequently, capturing our complex food habits is likely an advantage in nutrition research. The overall aim of this doctoral thesis was therefore to investigate dietary patterns in the Swedish population –nutrient intakes, nutritional biomarkers and health aspects. READ MORE

  2. 2. Improved analytical methods for perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) and their precursors – a focus on human dietary exposure

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Author : Shahid Ullah; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Environmental Science; PFASs; PFAAs; PFOA; PFOS; Precursor; FOSA; PAPs; Method development; LC-MS; SPE; Dietary sample; Drinking water; Human exposure; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances are a large group of global environmental contaminants. They can be divided into two sub-groups, 1) perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) and 2) so called precursors, i.e. compounds that can potentially be transformed to form PFAAs. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the regulation of immune responses to dietary and self antigens

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Author : Susanne Lindgren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Tolerance; regulatory T cells; self antigens; oral tolerance; dietary antigens; intestinal epithelial cells; exosomes; Staphylococcus aureus enterotoxin A;

    Abstract : Regulatory mechanisms are necessary to avoid the misdirected aggressive immune responses responsible for the pathology seen in autoimmunity and allergy. Thymic-derived CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells are indispensible for this regulation. We investigated if CD4+CD25+ Treg prevents auto-reactive responses in adult peripheral blood and cord blood.

  4. 4. Dietary supplements : Trends, demographics and mortality among users

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Institute of Enviromental Medicine

    Author : Maria Messerer; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Dietary supplements have received growing attention in society and sales numbers indicate increased use. Still, time trends in prevalence of users have been unknown. In order to accurately explore associations between diet and diseases, valid assessment methods for micronutrient intake from foods and dietary supplements are needed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Diet and postmenopausal breast cancer - With a focus on low-grade inflammation

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Joana Alves Dias; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oxidative stress; low-grade inflammation; Biomarkers of inflammation; cytokines; ICC; variation; diet; dietary recommendations; diet quality index; food patterns; reduced rank regression; obesity; CVD; postmenopausal breast cancer; epidemiology; cross sectional; nested case-control;

    Abstract : Diet-breast cancer studies have shown that “healthy eating patterns” are associated with decreased risk whereas unhealthy patterns (especially those including alcohol) are associated with increased risk, particularly in postmenopausal women. The potential mechanisms behind the observed associations are still under investigation. READ MORE
