Plasma lipid and lipoprotein responsiveness to dietary fat and cholesterol in premenopausal African American and white women



Plasma lipid and lipoprotein responsiveness to dietary fat and cholesterol in premenopausal African American and white women



American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 72(1): 56-63



Premenopausal African American women have a 2-3 times greater incidence of coronary heart disease (CHD) than do white women. The plasma lipid responsiveness to dietary fat, which may be associated with CHD, has not been adequately studied in premenopausal African American or white women. The objective of this study was to compare the effect of diet on fasting plasma lipids and lipoproteins and postprandial lipemia in premenopausal African American and white women.
