Dietary intake and cardiometabolic risk factors among Venezuelan adults: A nationally representative analysis
Describe the relationship between dietary intake and obesity, hypertension, and T2D, using a nationally representative dataset from EVESCAM (Estudio Venezolano de Salud Cardio-Metabólica).

Men, younger individuals, and those with higher socioeconomic status were more likely to consume red meat and soft drinks once or more weekly.
