Lipids are a family of molecules differing greatly from each other. Among these are the triglycerides (energy source), the phospholipids that constitute cell membranes, and cholesterol. Cholesterol is an essential for the proper functioning of the organization; however fuel consumption too important fatty acid can lead to cholesterol too high and therefore become negative. Indeed, higher intakes of fatty acids observed in industrialized countries (about 40% of total energy intake, the French Agency for Food Sanitary Safety (FAFSS) recommended limiting intake to 30 -35%) has been shown to cause various conditions including cardiovascular disease. Cardiovascular diseases are the leading causes of death in France; ischemic heart disease (1) and cerebrovascular disease (2) being the two main leaders and households, respectively for 7 and 5% of all deaths.
