Genes influence quantitative variations in plasma lipoprotein concentrations. For example, intake of dietary saturated fat and cholesterol raises the average serum cholesterol concentration, leading to a higher risk of coronary artery disease in populations. However, not all individuals within the population are susceptible: genetic factors appear to render individuals either "dietary responsive" or "dietary nonresponsive." In this review, we focus on current knowledge about the influence of… CONTINUE READING
