Conclusions. We propose that elevated lipid peroxidation is associated with several risk factors of CVD, such as a low PUFA/SFA ratio, whereas the FA precursors of lipid peroxidation, i.e. omega-3 and omega-6 PUFAs are associated with attenuated F-2-IsoP levels. These findings provide mechanistic support for earlier observations linking PUFA to improved cardiovascular health.
