Shenzhen, Guangdong
People’s Republic of China  What is the background for this study?  What are the main findings?

Response: Increasing number of studies has explored the association of fried food consumption and risk of cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality. However, the association remains contradictory and dose–response association is unknown.

In this meta-analysis, we found that total fried food consumption was significantly associated with increased risk of major cardiovascular events, coronary heart disease, and heart failure. A linear association was observed for the relation of fried food consumption and major cardiovascular events, coronary heart disease, and heart failure. What should readers take away from your report?

Response: People should reduce the consumption of fried food to prevent cardiovascular disease. What recommendations do you have for future research as a result of this work?

Response: Future cohort studies should have a longer follow-up to investigate the association between fried food consumption and all-cause mortality.

Further research is needed to assess the effect of different types of fried foods on cardiovascular disease.
