One of the major subjects of the Japan Society for Lipid Nutrition is to build up the national guideline of lipid nutrition, which is described in the regulations of the society. It is very important for the society and even for citizens to realize the evidences provided by epidemiology of lipid nutrition. However, there are some inconsistent evidences obtained by some trials of evidence-based nutrition, and the logic in some aspects of epidemiology seems difficult to reconcile some analytical and biological chemists to application of cell lipid metabolic evidences to human collectives. I will propose a chemometric approach for the evidence-based (lipid) nutritional research in combining the data of changes of lipid nutritional state for individuals and epidemiological evidences for the collective.
