In a cross-sectional study of white adults with upper-level socioeconomic status (in Columbia, Maryland), intakes of total, saturated, and polyunsaturated fat and of cholesterol were assessed. The intakes were compared with dietary recommendations made by the Inter-Society Commission for Heart Disease Resources, the American Heart Association, and the Senate Select Committee. Only moderate dietary changes were needed for a menu modification that conforms to the dietary recommendations for men. If the group studied reflects the impact of public health nutrition education, areas in need of attention seem to be a reduction in the amount and a change in the quality of dietary fat.
