There is a lot to unpack here, but bottom line is
– keep eating your veggies and fruits (no change here), and
– opt for healthy fats over unhealthy fats whenever possible (as usual), but
– stop stressing so much about cutting fat intake – fats are critically important
News: it is getting clearer and clearer that saturated fat does NOT cause cardiovascular disease!
So, it turns out that there is more emerging evidence that “low fat” is not the final word on healthy diets. In fact, low fat diets INCREASE mortality. The rule remains, “Moderation in all things, including moderation”.
This large observational study supports the emerging conclusion that saturated fat does not cause cardiovascular disease!!!
The current working conclusion is that the true culprit is systemic inflammation. Furthermore,increases in dietary carbs had a more significantly negative impact on blood lipids than fats did.
