Show Summary Details

Preview

Recently, the American Heart Association published a revision of its dietary guidelines. The recommendations are based on new scientific findings, and address the contribution of growing rates of obesity, hypertension, and diabetes to heart disease in the United States. The guidelines for the general public are similar to dietary recommendations made by other health-related groups and government agencies and, therefore, place a greater emphasis on the adoption of healthy eating patterns and behaviors rather than a singular focus on dietary fat intake.
