1 sources of fat were different, a greater portion coming
from dairy products in rural Kuopio and from meat in the
2 New York Metropolitan area".
3 Pausing there, if one turns over two pages to page 2,834,
I think, of this journal, one sees a table; do you see a
A. Yes, headed Kuopio and New York.
Q. If you look at the figures one sees that for the Finns the
6 total fat was 96.6 -- what are they?
A. Grammes per day.
Q. Grammes per day, and in New York it was 99.6. The Finns
8 had, I think -- it is a bad copy -- it might be 38.7 or
might it be 58.7?
9 A. It is difficult to make out.
10 Q. We will have to get the original copy; the New Yorkers had
47.7 saturated fats. But look down at the Finnish diet
11 and the American diet; if one looks at the Finnish diet
one sees a lot of cream, a lot of milk and a lot of
12 butter, does one not?
A. That is right.
Q. Whereas in the American diet there is beef, margarine,
14 which may not count, hamburger, boiled or roast beef for
dinner, potatoes (we do not know what cooked in), slices
15 of bread, dinner rolls, margarine and so on. As between,
let us say, meat in a hamburger (beef) on the one hand,
16 cream, butter and milk on the other, is there any
distinction to be drawn, from the nutritional point of
17 view, between the kinds of saturated fats that those
18 A. There would not be major differences because both are
coming mainly from cows, cattle.
Q. Is the answer this then? You can just as easily get a
20 high dosage of saturated fat from butter or cream, is that
what you mean?
21 A. They are both high in saturated fats.
22 MR. JUSTICE BELL: What is pulla, which they seem to have with
coffee during a snack? Is it something you eat or part of
23 a drink?
24 MR. RAMPTON: It is a braided yeast bread; one sees that from
the breakfast menu.
MR. JUSTICE BELL: I see, yes.
MR. RAMPTON: There is a thing called wheat velli, which is
27 similar to puuro cooked in milk. Puuro is a kind of
porridge made with oat meal, it looks like, does it not?
28 A. Yes.
29 Q. All, I suppose, sources of fibre as well as the rye bread,
which one sees the Finns ate at least three times a day,
30 by the look of it. Can I go back to the sources of
saturated fat? Would both the dairy products and meat
