Impaired clearance of triacylglycerol-rich lipoproteins contributes to atherogenesis. It
can be argued that exercise may decrease the risk of atherosclerotic diseases through its
potential to improve the metabolic capacity for triacylgycerol and hence, clearance of
triacylglycerol-rich lipoproteins. The investigations described in this thesis focused on
the influence of exercise on postprandial lipid and lipoprotein metabolism. [Continues.]
