Chinese populations have been protected from coronary heart disease by a low fat diet and low plasma lipids. Fat intake has increased in more affluent populations but coronary heart disease mortality has remained relatively low. Further increases in dietary fat in young people and rising rates of diabetes in the older population may increase the prevalence of hypelipidaemia and vascular disease.
