Abstract

Saturated fat reduction is a primary goal for decreasing the risk of cardiovascular disease. In a recent epidemiologic study, a low-fat diet high in saturated fat (10.6%-16.0% energy) was associated with less progression of coronary atherosclerosis, whereas carbohydrate intake (67% energy) was associated with a greater degree of progression in postmenopausal women.
