Abstract

The current epidemiological data does not support that notion that large consumption of fried food should be avoided in primary prevention of IHD. Indeed, a major issue that emerged from this systematic literature review is that the quality rather than the quantity of fried food may have a larger impact on the cardiovascular risk. Moreover, the biological effects of fried food may be strongly dependent upon the combination with other types of foods (e.g., those enriched in antioxidants may partially neutralize the unhealthy effects trans fats originating from frying). Accordingly, the overall impact of fried foods may be different between subjects consuming a Western diet and those regularly following a Mediterranean diet.
