Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The consumption of polyunsaturated fat of a group of patients with malignant melanoma was compared to that of various groups of control subjects to determine whether such dietary fats predispose to the development of malignant melanoma. The results are tabulated with reference to various associated factors, and a statistical assessment of their significance is presented. The writers were unable to agree on the interpretation of the results, and present two opposing views on whether the ingestion of polyunsaturated fat is associated with the incidence of malignant melanoma.
