The programme of IDF’s Nutrition Week 1999 focused on Dairy Foods and Cardiovascular Health. It was particularly significant as new information is emerging about the important role of dairy foods in a heart healthy diet, in addition to the general nutritional benefits of dairy products.
The papers and posters presented address such topics as "Epidemiology of Hypertension", "Dietary Calcium and Blood Pressure Control", and "Individual Fatty Acids and Esterification Effects on Blood Lipids". The scientific information provided can be used in educational efforts with policy makers, health professionals, and consumers who often do not fully appreciate the nutritional package provided by dairy foods.
