It is noteworthy that the lowest level of protein intake reflected in the Acceptable Macronutrient Distribution Range (AMDR) (10–35% of calories as protein)
 is higher than that of the RDA (0.8 g/kg).

Flavonoids show the potential to improve HDL function through their well-documented effects on cellular antioxidant status and inflammation. Strong experimental evidence confirms that HDL directly alleviates atherosclerosis. HDL particles display diverse atheroprotective functions in reverse cholesterol transport (RCT), antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antiapoptotic processes. In certain inflammatory disease states, however, HDL particles may become dysfunctional and proatherogenic.

A high fat diet during pregnancy or during 3 years after birth downregulates neurogenesis. The perinatal period is a window of heightened plasticity that lays the groundwork for future anatomic, physiologic, and behavioral outcomes. During this time, maternal diet plays a pivotal role in the maturation of vital organs and the establishment of neuronal connections. Diseases characterized by learning and memory impairments, such as autism, schizophrenia, and Alzheimer disease, are hypothesized to be attributed in part to environmental factors, and evidence suggests that the etiology of these conditions may date back to very early life.
