Twenty-four growing male rats of Wistar strain, weighing initially 120±3.5 g were randomly divided into four groups of six animals each and fed four different diets for 14 days: I - control diet (AIN-93G with soybean oil as a source of fat: 7 g/100 g), II - high-cholesterol diet (AIN-93G with soybean oil as a source of fat: 7 g/100 g + 1 g/100 g cholesterol), III - high-cholesterol diet (AIN-93G with lard a source of fat: 7 g/100 g + 1 g/100 g cholesterol), and IV - high-cholesterol diet (AIN-93G with lard as a source of fat: 7 g/100 g lard + 1 g/100 g cholesterol + 0.5 g/100 g cholic acid). On the day 14, the rats were anaesthetized and killed by withdrawing blood from the heart to obtain serum samples. The most striking increases (P
