Objectives: National dietary guidelines were introduced in 1977 and 1983, by the United States (US) and United Kingdom (UK) governments respectively, with the ambition of reducing deaths from coronary heart disease (CHD) by reducing or modifying fat intake. To date, no analysis of the evidence base for these recommendations has been undertaken.

Zoë Harcombe undertook her PhD in the examination of the epidemiological and randomized controlled trial (RCT) evidence available to the US and UK regulatory committees at their respective points of implementation. The thesis also examined the epidemiological and RCT evidence available currently, to assess if the extant guidelines are supported at the present day.
