Saturated Fat Does NOT Promote Heart Disease


For the past 60 years, conventional medical authorities have warned that saturated animal fats cause heart disease and should be severely restricted in a heart-healthy diet.

As of 2010, recommendations from the US Department of Agriculture1 (USDA) call for reducing your saturated fat intake to a mere 10 percent of your total calories or less. This is astounding, considering the fact that many health experts now believe you likely need anywhere from 50 to 70 percent of healthful fats for optimal health!

It’s virtually impossible to estimate how many people have been prematurely killed by the persistent promulgation of this myth, grown from a flawed study published over half a century ago, that has since been soundly debunked by many decades of research subsequently published.

Most recently, an editorial in the British Medical Journal2 titled: From the Heart, Saturated Fat is Not the Major Issue, has garnered much media attention as it sends a contrary message by saying  it’s time to bust the myth that saturated fat consumption causes heart disease.
