Abstract/Description: A decrease in dietary fat does not alter the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD), stroke, or cardiovascular disease (CVD) in postmenopausal women (SOR: B, based on a single RCT), nor does it significantly alter CHD in women aged 30 to 55. (SOR: B, based on a single cohort study.) However, CVD in women is epidemiologically linked to higher trans-fat consumption and lower polyunsaturated fat consumption.
