I have always said that if you live long enough you will eventually be proven out. Well as many of you know I, along with a small band of other health professionals, have been saying that saturated fats are actually good for you. This in spite of the entire health, medical, and dietary industries cry to the contrary. For over 30+ years we have been told that saturated fats cause heart disease, elevate cholesterol, and lead to premature death.
A recent observational study published in the British Medical Journal has shown that consumption of saturated fats has no significant increased risk of heart disease or mortality.
Saturated fats like animal fats, coconut, and palm oils are the fats our ancestors consumed because there were no fancy polyunsaturated oils and Trans fats in their day. The incidence of heart disease in those generations was a fraction of what it is today. In fact it is the over-consumption of polyunsaturated fats, Trans fats, and rancid oils that has caused the epidemic of heart disease we have presently.
If you have consumed the Standard American Diet for any length of time you will have ingested copious amounts of potentially health damaging fats. If you wish to protect yourself from these damaging oils and help your body to keep your arteries clean consider using a Targeted Cardiovascular support formula.
