Reports suggesting a relationship between diet and blood cholesterol levels have caused people to become more concerned about the type of fat in their diets. However, there is little conclusive evidence that high blood cholesterol is indeed a major cause of heart attacks in this country. Previous work at this station has indicated that the diet has a great effect on the type of body fat in birds and that what already is highly unsaturated can be readily made still further unsaturated.
