This volume, a companion to the 2008 Wild-type food in health promotion and disease prevention; the Columbus concept, continues the propositions of the earlier volume, presenting scientific studies supporting ideas that non-natural and excessive fat sources in the diet are unhealthy, and proposing alternatives. The 29 chapters are grouped into sections on the behavioral aspects of eating, dietary fats, the relation of fats and cardiovascular disease, contaminants in fats and oils and their role in illness, and approaches to modifying fat-induced disease. Individual chapters examine such topics as the role of dietary fat in insulin resistance and Type 2 diabetes, questions about the ill effects of saturated fat, strategies to modify school-based food to reduce obesity and health risk, the role of selenium in diet and health, questions concerning cholesterol-lowering drugs, and the relationship of fat-modified dairy products and blood lipids. De Meester (DMF Ltd Co, Marchel/Famenne, Belgium) co-edited the work with Sherma Zibadi (U. of Arizona College of Medicine, Tucson) and Ronald Ross Watson (U. of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, Tucson).
