    Are you going to change your diet?

    March 17, 2014 the following news announcement was made:
    "No link found between saturated fat and heart disease. Cambridge University academic have looked over previous studies on saturated fat and discovered there is no link to heart disease."
    If you have chosen to cut back on butter and other saturated fats are you going back to using them? Do you wonder what other so called "bad for you" foods might be proven not to be bad?

    I don't remember any scientific study claiming saturated fats are unhealthy. Fried food is unhealthy thanks to acrylamide. And every fat is unhealthy if there is too much of it:)

      Yes there were studies that claimed saturated fats increased chances of clogged arteries and heart disease in the past. A new study states people with high cholesterol live longer! http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/choleste … ths?page=4

    The problem with these studies is that they tend to focus on one specific ingredient, rather than the whole food. And they also tend to be funded by whoever would benefit most from a food looking good at the end of the study. With heart disease such a large problem in the U.S. (and other affluent countries) we can't just look to one part as the silver bullet to the problem. Instead, we have to realize that our eating habits are horrible and we can't make it okay by removing one ingredient.

      That's a valid point. With that said one could argue that the previous studies that linked saturated fat to heart disease also had an agenda. Drug companies are also notorious for promoting pills for non threating health issues. Who do we trust?

      The best option is to look to other areas of the world where these diseases are low or non-existent. Then compare eating habits with age groups.
