Abstract

Patients with or at risk of coronary artery disease have traditionally been advised to restrict markedly their intake of all types of dietary fat. However, accumulating evidence indicates that the optimal diet for many patients (including many elderly patients) should contain judicious amounts of monounsaturated fats and some types of polyunsaturated fats.
