Higher circulating and tissue levels of Linoleic Acid associated with lower risk of major cardiovascular events

A recent study found that higher levels of circulating Linoleic Acid (LA) were significantly associated with lower risks of total cardiovascular disease (CVD), cardiovascular mortality, and ischemic stroke. Arachidonic Acid (AA) levels were not associated with higher risk of cardiovascular outcomes. In fact, comparing extreme quintiles, higher levels were associated with lower risk of total CVD.
