Abstract

fatty acids raise plasma low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels in volunteers when exchanged for unsaturated fatty acids in the diet. In addition, fatty acids may lower high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels and raise triglyceride and lipoprotein(a) levels in plasma. and unsaturated fatty acids are thus not equivalent, and diets aimed at reducing the risk of coronary heart disease should be low in both and saturated fatty acids.
