Today, Professor Tom Sanders, Emeritus Professor of Nutrition & Dietetics of King's College London, will present a science update on 'Consumption of saturated fatty acids and the risk on coronary heart disease (CHD)' at the 11th Nordic Nutrition Conference (20- 22 June 2016) in Gothenburg, Sweden.

His poster presentation (you can click on the image to download the poster in PDF) reflects the expert panel discussion at the SAFA Expert meeting, which was held 5 and 6 November 2015 in Leiden, The Netherlands.

At the SAFA Expert meeting, 20 leading experts on dietary fat and health convened in Leiden, The Netherlands, to assess the scientific state of the art on the effect of saturated fatty acid (SAFA) consumption on the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke. The goal was to confirm the key points of agreement where convincing evidence exists, identify areas where the evidence is inconclusive, and describe the knowledge gaps and the best ways to fill them.
