Cholesterol now affects one in two Australian adults and the current percentage of Australians affected by cholesterol is higher than that in the United States and many other countries. Whats more, cholesterol awareness is extremely low with only 1 in 5 Australians thinking that they are affected by cholesterol. Were currently working with the Woodies to educate Australians on the potential consequences of inaction on national heart health and how to lower their cholesterol levels through diet.

Fats as part of the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating Leading Australian nutritionist, Bill Shrapnel, has urged the Federal Government to include margarines and vegetable oils in the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating. At present, the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating positions margarines, vegetable oils and butter as not essential to provide nutrients the body needs. However, this means that diets based on the Guide do not meet recommended intakes of omega 3, omega 6, vitamin D and vitamin E. Bill Shrapnel and Dr Katrine Baghurst have written a paper about this issue which has been published in the journal of Nutrition & Dietetics.
