Abstract

We examined the relation of fatty acid composition of plasma phospholipids and cholesterol esters with carotid artery intima-media thickness (a measure of atherosclerosis) in 2872 white men and women aged 45-64 y from the Minneapolis center of the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities Study. In both men and women, average carotid intima-media thickness was associated significantly (P
