The effect of diet on coronary heart disease has been the subject of much research and controversy in recent years. In 1970 a panel was set up by the Committee on Medical Aspects of Food Policy (Nutrition) to advise on the significance of any relationships and on any indications for future action and for the formulation of a United Kingdom food policy. The panel's report was published in June 1974. The panel's members studied and discussed an enormous volume of published work from all over the world, and had meetings with a number of experienced investigators. The report's bibliography contains almost 400 papers, both published and unpublished. The report is almost entirely confined to an interpretation of the evidence as it applies to man; although atherosclerotic thickening of arterial walls occurs in other species, thrombotic obstruction appears to be found only in man.
