Diet and Western Disease

Fat, Energy and Cancer
  • Norman J. Temple


It is difficult to believe that any reader can be unaware that a wide body of authoritative opinion holds that diet is a major cause of the diseases discussed in this book. The main focus of this chapter is the role of fat, particularly saturated fat, and energy intake in the causation of Western disease. Most attention is paid to cancer, but coronary heart disease and obesity are also examined.
