Weston Price observed that fat-soluble vitamins were richest in dairy fat during periods when pasture was the most lush and grew the most rapidly, and that heart disease mortality was lowest during these periods. Our understanding of heart disease has made incredible advances since Price's time, which has made the role of fat-soluble vitamins in preventing heart disease much clearer than Price could have imagined. "Heart disease" is really a group of related but different diseases. The fat-soluble vitamins cooperate to prevent this array of diseases and support a robust state of health in our cardiovascular tissues in many ways that will be discussed in this presentation.
