Serial estimations of serum cholesterol over a period of from 6 to 34, mean 13, weeks in 30 men aged from 25 to 59 years showed distinct fluctuations in individual values about the level characteristic of the individual. The levels after several weeks on a daily supplement of unsaturated fat, usually 50 g. sunflower seed oil, were studied in 10 of the men and later the effects of 50 g. maize oil were studied in 5 of them.
