    Fat is a large part of our diet; often we don't realise just how much of it we consume. Staple foodstuffs such as meat, butter and milk all have high fat contents. Additionally, many foods become high in fat when they are prepared in certain ways; low fat potatoes can become high fat chips, for example. This program looks at what fat is, how much of it we eat, what foods it is found in, what function it carries out in the body, what problems it causes, and how we can reduce our consumption of it. We also see the pressures put on us to eat more fat. Advertising tempts us with appealing pictures of healthy people eating fatty products and industry lobby groups are constantly campaigning for their product.

    For some years now, salt has been viewed as a major cause of high blood pressure. But the reality is a little more complex. For people with a genetic pre-disposition, salt may be a killer; for others it may not be such a problem. But until a satisfactory test is developed, it's wise for all of us to greatly reduce the amount of salt we consume.

    The more sugar we eat, the less complex carbohydrate and the more fat we eat. For that reason, sugar, with its empty kilojoules, is a food we should eat less of. But there's also the problem of dental caries: despite all the improvements in tooth-paste and fluoridation over large areas of Australasia, sugar which is hidden in an amazing variety of foods, is still public enemy number 1.
