Systematic Review Finds No Grounds for Current Warnings Against Saturated Fat

Saturated Fat

Story at-a-glance -

  • Despite low-fat diets having become the norm over the past six decades, American levels of heart disease, obesity, and high cholesterol have skyrocketed
  • Four years ago, a meta-analysis came to the conclusion that there’s “no significant evidence... that saturated fat is associated with an increased risk for coronary heart disease”
  • Another recent meta analysis also found that saturated fats, which have the longest history of being (wrongfully) demonized were found to have no effect on heart disease risk
  • The only fat found to really promote heart disease was trans fat (found in margarine, vegetable shortening, and partially hydrogenated vegetable oils)
  • To protect your heart health, you need to address your insulin and leptin resistance, which is the result of eating a diet too high in sugars and grains
