Abstract

Dietary intake of cholesterol, saturated and polyunsaturated fats, and (perhaps) carbohydrates and total calories may relate to lipid and lipoprotein levels and to the ultimate development of coronary heart disease (CHD) (InterSociety Commision, 1970; National Diet Heart Study 1968; Connor and Connor 1972). However, the strength, consistency, and predictability of nutrient-CHD risk associations remains controversial (Mann 1977; Glueck et al. 1978).
