A study has shown, Saturated fat does not increase the risk of stroke, heart disease, diabetes or early death.
Saturated fat found in butter, meat or cream is unlikely to kill you, but margarine might. Traditionally dieticians have advised people to cut down on animal fats, the biggest ever study has shown that it does not increase the risk of stroke, heart disease or diabetes.
Trans-fats, found in processed foods like margarine raises the risk of death by 34 per cent. Trans fats have no health benefits and pose a significant risk for heart disease.
New research which looked at 50 studies involving more than one million people found there was no evidence that saturated fat was bad for health.
It backs up recent research from the University of Cambridge that found saturated fat in dairy foods might protect against diabetes.
The “vilification” of saturated fats dates back to the 1950s when research suggested a link between high dietary saturated fat intake. However this study author drew his conclusions on data from six countries, choosing to ignore the data from a further 16, which did not fit with his hypothesis.
