Via het initiatief de Duurzame Zuivelketen streven zuivelondernemingen en melkveehouders gezamenlijk naar een toekomstbestendige en verantwoorde zuivelsector. De Duurzame Zuivelketen heeft doelen geformuleerd op het gebied van vier duurzaamheidsthema’s. Deze sectorrapportage doet verslag van de voortgang op deze doelen in 2017. De Duurzame Zuivelketen levert op alle thema’s waarop zij actief is flinke inspanningen om de gestelde doelen te realiseren. Op veel thema’s is in 2017 vooruitgang geboekt ten opzichte van 2016. Doelrealisatie vindt plaats op de thema’s verantwoord antibioticagebruik, energie-efficiëntie en verantwoorde soja. Alleen bij levensduur is het resultaat verslechterd. Het fosfaatreductieplan en de daarmee gepaard gaande daling van het aantal dieren heeft grote invloed gehad op de resultaten van 2017. Het fosfaatplafond voor de veehouderij als geheel werd niet meer overschreden in 2017, het sectorplafond voor de melkveehouderij nog wel. Een positieve ontwikkeling is dat er in 2017 voor het eerst sprake was van een dalende lijn in de broeikasgasemissies van de zuivelketen. Op basis van voorlopige cijfers geldt dit ook voor de ammoniakemissie. Voor beide thema’s geldt echter ook dat de afstand tot het doel nog groot is. Ook op het thema duurzame energie productie is de afstand tot het doel nog groot. Bij weidegang is er een stijgende trend en is het nagestreefde niveau van 81,2% bedrijven met weidegang binnen handbereik. Voor dierenwelzijn en biodiversiteit zijn nog geen doelen op sectorniveau vastgesteld in 2017, maar er is wel voortgang geboekt in het ontwikkelen van de monitoringssystematiek.---Through the Sustainable Dairy Chain (Duurzame Zuivelketen) initiative, dairy companies and dairy farmers strive for a future-proof and sustainable dairy sector together. The Sustainable Dairy Chain has formulated targets in the area of four sustainability themes. This sector report provides an overview of the progress on those objectives in 2017. The Sustainable Dairy Chain actively pursues these goals for all of the themes in which it is involved. There has been progress in many of themes when comparing 2017 to 2016. The targets are achieved in the themes of responsible use of antibiotics, energy efficiency, and sustainable soy. The results have only declined for lifespan. The phosphate reduction plan, and the associated decrease in the number of animals, had a significant impact on the 2017 results. The phosphate ceiling for livestock farming as a whole was no longer exceeded in 2017, however, the sector ceiling for dairy farming was. A positive development in 2017 is that a downward trend was visible in the greenhouse gas emissions by the dairy chain for the first time. Preliminary figures show that this is also true for ammonia emissions. However, both themes are also still a long way from their target. Sustainable energy production is also still far from the theme’s target. There is an upward trend for grazing, and the targeted level of 81.2% of farms with grazing is within reach. Animal welfare and biodiversity had no targets set at the sector level in 2017, but progress was made in the development of the monitoring system.

Cardiovascular disease - Kidney function - Obesity - Risk factors

Background: Obesity increases risk of hypertension and diabetes, the leading causes of end-stage renal disease. The effect of obesity on kidney function decline in stable post-myocardial infarction patients is poorly documented. This relation was investigated in a large cohort of older post-myocardial infarction patients. Design: Data were analysed from 2410 post-myocardial infarction patients in the Alpha Omega Trial, aged 60–80 years receiving optimal pharmacotherapy treatment (79% men, 18% diabetes). Methods: Cystatin C based estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFRcysC) was calculated at baseline and after 41 months, using the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) equation. Obesity was defined as body mass index ≥ 30 kg/m2 and high waist circumference as ≥102 and ≥88 cm for men and women. The relation between body mass index, waist circumference and annual eGFRcysC decline was evaluated by linear regression. Results: At baseline, mean (standard deviation) eGFRcysC was 81.5 (19.6) ml/min/1.73 m2, 23% of all patients were obese. After multivariable adjustment, the annual mean (95% confidence interval) eGFRcysC decline in men and women was –1.45 (–1.59 to –1.31) and –0.92 (–1.20 to –0.63) ml/min/1.73 m2, respectively (p = 0.001). Obese versus non-obese patients and patients with high versus normal waist circumference experienced greater annual eGFRcysC decline. Men and women showed an additional annual eGFRcysC decline of –0.35 (–0.56 to –0.14) and –0.21 (–0.55 to 0.14) ml/min/1.73 m2 per 5 kg/m2 body mass index increment (p for interaction 0.3). Conclusions: High compared to normal body mass index or waist circumference were associated with more rapid kidney function decline in older stable post-myocardial infarction patients receiving optimal drug therapy.

cardiovascular risk factors - kidney function decline - lifestyle

Introduction: Impaired kidney function is a robust risk factor for cardiovascular mortality. Age-related annual kidney function decline of 1.0 ml/min per 1.73 m2 after age 40 years is doubled in post−myocardial infarction (MI) patients. Methods: We investigated the impact of the number of cardiovascular risk factors (including unhealthy lifestyle) on annual kidney function decline, in 2426 post-MI patients (60−80 years) of the prospective Alpha Omega Cohort study. Glomerular filtration rate was estimated by serum cystatin C (eGFRcysC) and combined creatinine−cystatin C (eGFRcr-cysC), using the Chronic Kidney Disease Epidemiology Collaboration (CKD-EPI) equations from 2012. Data were analyzed by multivariable linear and logistic regression. Results: At baseline, mean (SD) eGFRcysC and eGFRcr-cysC were 81.5 (19.6) and 78.5 (18.7) ml/min per 1.73 m2, respectively. Of all patients, 79% were men, 19% had diabetes, 56% had high blood pressure (≥140/90 mm Hg), 16% were current smokers, 56% had high serum low-density lipoprotein (LDL of ≥2.5 mmol/l), and 23% were obese (body mass index of ≥30.0 kg/m2). After multivariable adjustment, the additional annual eGFRcysC decline (95% confidence interval) was as follows: in patients with versus without diabetes, −0.90 (−1.23 to −0.57) ml/min per 1.73 m2; in patients with high versus normal blood pressure, −0.50 (−0.76 to −0.24) ml/min per 1.73 m2; in obese versus nonobese patients, −0.31 (−0.61 to 0.01) ml/min per 1.73 m2; and in current smokers versus nonsmokers, −0.19 (−0.54 to 0.16) ml/min per 1.73 m2. High LDL was not associated with accelerated eGFRcysC decline. Similar results were obtained with eGFRcr-cysC. Conclusion: In older, stable post-MI patients without cardiovascular risk factors, the annual kidney function decline was −0.90 (−1.16 to −0.65) ml/min per 1.73 m2. In contrast, in post-MI patients with ≥3 cardiovascular risk factors, the annual kidney function decline was 2.5-fold faster, at −2.37 (−2.85 to −1.89) ml/min per 1.73 m2.

Kidney function and specific mortality in 60-80 years old post-myocardial infarction patients: a 10-year follow-up study

n-3 fatty acids - cardiovascular diseases - post-myocardial infarction patients - kidney function
This research project studies the relation between kidney function and all-cause and specific mortality among older post-MI patients, without severe heart failure, who are treated with state-of-the-art pharmacotherapy. From 2002-2006, 4,561 Dutch post-MI patients were enrolled and followed until death or January 2012. We estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) with cystatin C (cysC) and creatinine (cr) using the CKD-EPI equations and analyzed the relation with any and major causes of death using Cox models and restricted cubic splines. Mean (SD) for age was 69y (5.6), 79% were men, 17% smoked, 21% had diabetes, 90% used antihypertensive drugs, 98% used antithrombotic drugs and 85% used statins. Patients were divided into four categories of baseline eGFRcysC: ≥90 (33%; reference), 60-89 (47%), 30-59 (18%), and <30 (2%) ml/min/1.73m2. Median follow-up was 6.4 y. During follow-up, 873 (19%) patients died: 370 (42%) from cardiovascular causes, 309 (35%) from cancer, and 194 (22%) from other causes. After adjustment for age, sex and classic cardiovascular risk factor, hazard ratios (95%-confidence intervals) for any death according to eGFRcysC category were: 1 (reference), 1.4 (1.1-1.7), 2.9 (2.3-3.6) and 4.4 (3.0-6.4). The hazard ratios of all-cause and cause-specific mortality increased linearly below kidney functions of 80 ml/min/1.73 m2. Weaker results were obtained for eGFRcr. To conclude, we found in optimal cardiovascular drug-treated post-MI patients an inverse graded relation between kidney function and mortality for both cardiovascular as well as non-cardiovascular causes. Risk of mortality increased linearly below kidney function of about 80 ml/min/1.73 m2.
Kidney function and specific mortality in 60-80 years old post-myocardial infarction patients : A 10-year follow-up study

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is highly prevalent among older post-myocardial infarction (MI) patients. It is not known whether CKD is an independent risk factor for mortality in older post-MI patients with optimal cardiovascular drug-treatment. Therefore, we studied the relation between kidney function and all-cause and specific mortality among older post-MI patients, without severe heart failure, who are treated with state-of-the-art pharmacotherapy. From 2002-2006, 4,561 Dutch post-MI patients were enrolled and followed until death or January 2012. We estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate (EGFR) with cystatin C (cysC) and creatinine (cr) using the CKD-EPI equations and analyzed the relation with any and major causes of death using Cox models and restricted cubic splines. Mean (SD) for age was 69 years (5.6), 79% were men, 17% smoked, 21% had diabetes, 90% used antihypertensive drugs, 98% used antithrombotic drugs and 85% used statins. Patients were divided into four categories of baseline EGFRcysC: ≥90 (33%; reference), 60-89 (47%), 30-59 (18%), and <30 (2%) ml/min/1.73m2. Median follow-up was 6.4 years. During follow-up, 873 (19%) patients died: 370 (42%) from cardiovascular causes, 309 (35%) from cancer, and 194 (22%) from other causes. After adjustment for age, sex and classic cardiovascular risk factor, hazard ratios (95%-confidence intervals) for any death according to the four EGFRcysC categories were: 1 (reference), 1.4 (1.1-1.7), 2.9 (2.3-3.6) and 4.4 (3.0-6.4). The hazard ratios of all-cause and cause-specific mortality increased linearly below kidney functions of 80 ml/min/1.73 m2. Weaker results were obtained for EGFRcr. To conclude, we found in optimal cardiovascular drug-treated post-MI patients an inverse graded relation between kidney function and mortality for both cardiovascular as well as non-cardiovascular causes. Risk of mortality increased linearly below kidney function of about 80 ml/min/1.73 m2.

Cardiovascular - Chronic kidney disease - Fibroblast growth factor 23 - Myocardial infarction - N-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids
Fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular mortality in chronic kidney disease. Omega-3 (n-3) fatty acid consumption has been inversely associated with FGF23 levels and with cardiovascular risk. We examined the effect of marine n-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and plant-derived alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) on plasma FGF23 levels in post-myocardial infarction patients with chronic kidney disease. In the randomized double-blind Alpha Omega Trial, 4837 patients with a history of myocardial infarction aged 60–80 years (81% men) were randomized to one of four trial margarines supplemented with a targeted additional intake of 400 mg/day EPA and DHA, 2 g/day ALA, EPA-DHA plus ALA, or placebo for 41 months. In a subcohort of 336 patients with an eGFR < 60 mL/min/1.73 m2 (creatinine-cystatin C-based CKD-EPI formula), plasma C-terminal FGF23 was measured by ELISA at baseline and end of follow-up. We used analysis of covariance to examine treatment effects on FGF23 levels adjusted for baseline FGF23. Patients consumed 19.8 g margarine/day on average, providing an additional amount of 236 mg/day EPA with 158 mg/day DHA, 1.99 g/day ALA or both, in the active intervention groups. Over 79% of patients were treated with antihypertensive and antithrombotic medication and statins. At baseline, plasma FGF23 was 150 (128 to 172) RU/mL (mean (95% CI)). After 41 months, overall FGF23 levels had increased significantly (p < 0.0001) to 212 (183 to 241) RU/mL. Relative to the placebo, the treatment effect of EPA-DHA was indifferent, with a mean change in FGF23 (95% CI) of −17 (−97, 62) RU/mL (p = 0.7). Results were similar for ALA (36 (−42, 115) RU/mL) and combined EPA-DHA and ALA (34 (−44, 113) RU/mL). Multivariable adjustment, pooled analyses, and subgroup analyses yielded similar non-significant results. Long-term supplementation with modest quantities of EPA-DHA or ALA does not reduce plasma FGF23 levels when added to cardiovascular medication in post-myocardial patients with chronic kidney disease.
Integrale aanpak scoort! Verbinding Zorg, Sport en Bewegen
Leenaars, Karlijn - \ 2017

Vier jaar geleden startten de Wageningen Universiteit en het Radboudumc – in samenwerking met Kenniscentrum Sport, VSG, ROS en KNGF – het onderzoeksproject Verbinding Zorg, Sport en Bewegen. Karlijn Leenaars, promovenda aan de WUR, en Eva Smit – PhD-student aan het Radboudumc – volgden dertien buurtsportcoaches uit negen verschillende gemeenten (Den Haag, Den Bosch, Heusden, Nijmegen, Zwolle, Hoogeveen, Emmen, Utrecht en Franeker). De opdracht die de buurtsportcoaches kregen was eerstelijnszorg met de sport- en beweegsector te verbinden en zo volwassenen te stimuleren meer te gaan bewegen. Het onderzoek is inmiddels afgerond. Karlijn Leenaars verdedigt in september haar proefschrift over buurtsportcoaches die werkzaam zijn op het snijvlak van sport en zorg.

Background The aim was to investigate whether mild kidney dysfunction and low-grade inflammation in post-myocardial infarction patients are independently associated with markers of mental well-being (i.e. depressive and apathy symptoms, and dispositional optimism). Methods In post-myocardial infarction patients, kidney function was assessed by estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) calculated from the combined CKD-EPI formula based on serum levels of both creatinine and cystatine C. Systemic inflammation was assessed using high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) levels. The 15-item Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS-15), the 3-item apathy subscale and the 4-item optimism questionnaire (4Q) were used to measure mental well-being and were analyzed using linear multivariable regression analysis. Results Of the 2355 patients, mean age was 72.3 (range 63–84) years and 80.1% were men. After multivariable adjustment, a poorer kidney function was associated with more depressive symptoms (β = -0.084, p < 0.001), more apathy symptoms (β = -0.101, p < 0.001), and less dispositional optimism (β = 0.072, p = 0.002). Moreover, higher levels of hs-CRP were associated with more depressive symptoms (β = 0.051, p = 0.013), more apathy symptoms (β = 0.083, p < 0.001) and less dispositional optimism (β = -0.047 p = 0.024). Apathy showed the strongest independent relation with both low eGFR and high hs-CRP. Conclusions In post-myocardial infarction patients, impaired kidney function and systemic inflammation showed a stronger association with apathy than with depressive symptoms and dispositional optimism.

Food allergens - Partial budgeting analysis - Willingness to pay

This study aimed to quantify costs and benefits of allergen free food (food not containing ingredients that fall under the European labelling regime) production at a catering business under two scenarios. In scenario 1 the caterer provides information to the consumer regarding the presence of allergens in the meals served, uses allergen free ingredients in preparation of allergen free meals, but does not avoid cross contamination during food preparation. Scenario 2 expands upon scenario 1 as to also include the prevention of cross contamination during preparation of allergen free foods. A stochastic partial budgeting analysis was performed to simulate the costs and benefits in both scenarios, relative to the current situation of providing neither information regarding the presence of allergens nor serving allergen free meals. Costs values were based upon the adaptations necessary to comply with the two scenarios for an on premise catering location. Fixed and variable cost items were identified via literature review, critical inspection of the catering establishment, and expert opinion. Benefit items were identified and quantified via a questionnaire about willingness to pay and willingness to buy at a catering location, according to each scenario. Given the price increase of meals in accordance to the estimated willingness to pay, and using mean values of the distributions of the costs and benefit items, an investment payback time of 8.1 and 7.7 months was estimated for scenarios 1 and 2, respectively. However, with median values of the distributions, both scenarios were not profitable, since monthly net profits were estimated at € -413 and € -636 for scenarios 1 and 2, respectively. If additional costs are not passed on to the consumer, no scenario is profitable. Catering companies can use the methodology and results in their decision making process on serving allergen free foods.

brain natriuretic peptide - chronic heart-failure - glomerular-filtration-rate - serum creatinine - cystatin c - stability - risk - omega-3-fatty-acids - metaanalysis - mortality
BACKGROUND: heart failure is a major risk factor for cardiovascular mortality, for which n-3 fatty acids may have beneficial effects. We examined the effect of marine eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and plant-derived alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) on N-Terminal-pro Brain Natriuretic Peptide (NT-proBNP), a biomarker of heart failure. METHODS: we randomly assigned 4837 post-myocardial infarction patients, aged 60-80 years (82% men), to margarines supplemented with a targeted additional intake of 400¿mg/day EPA and DHA, 2¿g/day ALA, EPA-DHA plus ALA, or placebo for 40 months. In a random selection of 639 patients, NT-proBNP was determined both at baseline and at the end of follow-up. NT-proBNP was loge-transformed and analysed by type of treatment using analysis of covariance adjusting for baseline NT-proNBP. RESULTS: patients consumed on average 19.8¿g margarine/day, providing an additional amount of 238¿mg/day EPA with 158¿mg/day DHA, 1.98¿g/day ALA, or both, in the active-treatment groups. In the placebo group, the geometric mean level NT-proBNP increased from 245¿ng/l (95%-confidence interval [CI]: 207-290) to 294¿ng/l (95%-CI: 244-352) after 40 months (p¿=¿0.001). NT-proBNP levels were not affected by ALA (+8% versus placebo; 95%-CI: -8% to +25%; p¿=¿0.34), EPA-DHA (+2% versus placebo; 95%-CI: -14% to +18%; p¿=¿0.78), nor EPA-DHA plus ALA (+9% versus placebo; 95%-CI: -8% to +25%; p¿=¿0.31) treatment. CONCLUSIONS: supplementation with modest amounts of EPA-DHA, with or without ALA, did not have a significant effect on NT-proBNP levels in patients with a history of myocardial infarction.
