The diseases that compose the metabolic syndrome are now a major public health concern in the developed world. The metabolic syndrome is a complex of risk factors linked to excessive body weight and obesity, that when present, increases one’s risk for both cardiovascular disease and type II diabetes mellitus (T2DM) as well
as other health complications.1  These risk factors include abdominalobesity, atherogenic dyslipidemia,
hypertension, insulin resistance, inflammation, and prothrombotic states. The populations of many developing countries are experiencing increasing incidence of the metabolic syndrome.2 This increased prevalence of the metabolic syndrome in developing countries has been attributed to increased urbanization, nutrition transition,
reduced physical activity, and aggressive community nutrition intervention programs for undernourished
children.2 The molecular events that underlie the pathogenesis associated with the metabolic syndrome are  now the subject of an extensive research effort aimed at developing therapeutic interventions to combat this growing public health concern. Some of this research effort is focused on establishing linkages between vitamin  and caro enoid nutrition and metabolism and the component diseases of the metabolic syndrome. This article will provide a brief overview of this research.
