Dietary fat, body weight control and links between obesity and cardiovascular disease

Cardiovascular disease is a major health problem in Europe, causing 50% or more of all deaths at considerable cost to health services. Obesity is a growing problem in Europe, and as the population becomes more obese so an increase in obesity-related diseases, especially cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus, is to be expected. Therefore a better understanding of the origins and treatment of these common conditions must be important both in public health terms and in terms of advice to, or treatment of, the individual.
