Rice-Based Diet and Cardiovascular Disease Mortality in Japan: From the Takayama Study | PubMed
“We aimed to evaluate the association between rice consumption as grain dishes and cardiovascular disease mortality in comparison with bread and noodle consumption … In Japan, choosing rice as a grain dish is likely to be accompanied by healthier foods as side dishes, which may have a potential role in the prevention of cardiovascular disease.”

ALOX15-launched PUFA-phospholipids Peroxidation Increases the Susceptibility of Ferroptosis in Ischemia-induced Myocardial Damage | PubMed
“Myocardial ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury is a classic type of cardiovascular disease characterized by injury to cardiomyocytes leading to various forms of cell death. It is believed that irreversible myocardial damage resulted from I/R occurs due to oxidative stress evoked during the reperfusion phase … Collectively, our results reveal that ALOX15 induction in the ischemia phase acts as a “burning point” to ignite phospholipid oxidization into ferroptotic signals.”

Spatial Multi-omic Map of Human Myocardial Infarction | PubMed
“Here we generate an integrative high-resolution map of human cardiac remodelling after myocardial infarction using single-cell gene expression, chromatin accessibility and spatial transcriptomic profiling of multiple physiological zones at distinct time points in myocardium from patients with myocardial infarction and controls … Our data elucidate the molecular principles of human myocardial tissue organization, recapitulating a gradual cardiomyocyte and myeloid continuum following ischaemic injury.”
