Newly Published Research Confirms: Dietary Fat does NOT Cause Heart Disease

Further published research supports the fact that dietary fat consumption does NOT cause Heart Disease: A recently published meta-analysis (analysis of multiple published studies) supports this. The original research suggesting that dietary (saturated) fat contributed to heart disease fat which is described as the “Diet/Heart (Disease) Hypothesis” was flawed (the original researcher Ancel Keys, selectively chose data results which supported his hypothesis and excluded considerable data which showed it was not true!

Here is a summary on this recent analysis:

Present evidence suggests that saturated fat does not increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.
No causal relationship has been established between milk products and cardiovascular risk.
Factors associated with an increased risk of coronary heart disease include trans fatty acids and high glycemic-index foods.

Part of the confusion comes from the food and processed oils industry creating misinformation to confuse the general public.

Note the last point in the summary: high glycemic-index foods are carbohydrates/sugars which can be a major contributor to not only heart disease but also diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease etc.…/new-evidence-reveals-that-s…
