The Fatty Acids in Health Promotion and Disease Causation book has four main focuses and sections. First there is a significant focus on heart disease and the role of fatty acids in its prevention as well as causation. Information on special populations, Native Americans, stroke and cardiac injury are examples of areas where fatty acids play a key role. The second main focus is on body composition, diabetic disease and health promotion, and actions after transformation by oxidation. The third section is on fatty acids in health promotion per se. This includes cancer, intestinal microbes, and membrane functions. Finally the actions of omega-3 fatty acids, the presumed health-promoting ones are extensively investigated by experts from around the world.
