Lipids typically represent over one third of our dietary intake on the basis of energy content and yet are typically perceived by the general public as having a rather negative effect on our nutritional health and well-being.
This conference will seek to explore the scientific basis behind the many beliefs, myths and paradigms that have come about in the last half century relating to lipid consumption and their effect on health. It will explore the key beneficial contributions that some minor fatty acids, present at relatively low levels in the typical European diet, make to human development and health maintenance.
