Coronary heart disease is a major cause of death in the Western World and increasingly elsewhere. Although it is a multifactorial disorder, the integrated role of diet attracts enormous attention since it is the one component which can be modified by all and is strongly correlated to population behaviour. The second edition of this highly successful treatise, is an invaluable reference source for all those working within the professions of health, medicine and food science and for all those concerned with matters relating to health and social policy.
