Table 5 Univariate Relationships of Palm Oil Consumption and Other Sources of Dietary Saturated Fat and Per-capita GDP

From: Multi-Country analysis of palm oil consumption and cardiovascular disease mortality for countries at different stages of economic development: 1980-1997

  Palm oil consumption (kg per-capita) P-value 95% Confidence Interval
Per-capita coconut oil consumption (kg) -1.58 0.09 [-3.44 - 0.28]
Per-capita beef consumption (kg) -0.06 0.42 [-0.19 - 0.08]
Per-capita milk consumption (kg) 0.00 0.66 [-0.01 - 0.01]
Per-capita butter consumption (kg) 0.02 0.77 [-0.13 - 0.18]
Per-capita cheese consumption (kg) 0.14 0.44 [-0.22 - 0.50]
Per-capita pork consumption (kg) 0.08 0.002 [0.03 - 0.13]
Per-capita chicken consumption (kg) 0.03 0.70 [-0.13 - 0.19]
Per-capita GDP (2005 international $)* 8.61 0.01 [2.01 - 15.20]
  1. * Per-capita GDP is logged transformed so the coefficient can be interpreted as increases in per-capita consumption of palm oil for each percent increase in per-capita GDP.
