Nutrition Bulletin has published (January 2018) a Virtual Issue on dietary fats in anticipation of the draft report on saturated fat and health by the UK Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) that was published for consultation in 2018. This collection of 13 papers by leading scientists explores the often complex relationships between different types of fat in the diet and health outcomes, such as cardiovascular disease, and overweight and obesity.
