Diet and prevention of ischemic heart disease:
A translational approach

DIPI in brief

Ischemic heart disease remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in Denmark and most other Western countries. Ischemic heart disease has major implications for the quality of life of those affected and has a large impact on societal costs to treatment and rehabilitation after diagnosis. Therefore, scientific advances in the prevention of ischemic heart disease are of crucial importance for society.

The DIPI-project aims to provide novel, comprehensive knowledge of how foods and macronutrients affect the development of ischemic heart disease.

The project will be of major scientific value in the development of improved, scientifically-founded, food-based dietary guidelines targeted at optimising health and preventing diet-related chronic diseases. Further, it will offer the Danish food industry new opportunities for innovation, production, and marketing of healthier food.
