In the article by Zarraga and Schwarz, “Impact of Dietary Patterns and Interventions on Cardiovascular Health,” which appeared in the August 29, 2006, issue (Circulation. 2006;114:961–973), two entries in Table 3 need to be corrected. On the first line, the results of the Nurses’ Health Study should read, “GL correlated directly with risk of coronary events,” as was stated in the text. In the third to the last study, by Raitt et al, the results should read, “1.8 g/d fish oil…Among patients with VT as qualifying rhythm for entry into trial, intervention resulted in significant increase in VT/VF occurrence.”
On page 967, the references for the first sentence, “Although appealing to advocates of the GI or glycemic load, this result did not find consistent support from observational studies (Table 3),” should be references 25, 78, and 79. These errors have been corrected in the current online version of the article.
The authors regret the errors.
