  1. A J Silman,
  2. J W Marr


    The relation between total energy intake and the development of ischaemic heart disease was investigated from a review of all available data including the results of 26 years of follow up from a longitudinal study of diet and ischaemic heart disease.

It is concluded that there may be a minimum energy intake below which the risk of ischaemic heart disease is increased.
