The fat that a person consumes in his or her diet, the amount and type of which closely correlate with the incidence of coronary artery disease. Fats comprise 34% of the US diet (down from 42% in the mid-1960s); saturated fats comprise 12% (16% in mid-1960s); cholesterol levels average 205 mg/dL (213 mg/dL in 1978). Reduction in dietary fats is credited with the 40% decrease in coronary artery disease-related mortality since 1968.
