Abstract

There appears to be an inverse correlation between dietary fat-mediated oxidative stress and antioxidant enzyme activities. The present data suggest that high levels of dietary unsaturated fat should be avoided if oxidative stress is a critical issue in nutrition-related diseases. In addition, these data support our hypothesis that diets rich in MF provide a lipid environment with low susceptibility to oxidative stress.
