'No link found between saturated fat and heart disease'
The following item is reproduced from the Daily Telegraph website:
'Scientists have discovered that saturated fat does not cause heart disease while so-called ‘healthy’ polyunsaturated fats do not prevent cardiovascular problems.'
'In contrast with decades old nutritional advice, researchers at Cambridge University have found that giving up fatty meat, cream or butter is unlikely to improve health.'
'They are calling for guidelines to be changed to reflect a growing body of evidence suggesting there is no overall association between saturated fat consumption and heart disease.'
'Lead researcher Dr Rajiv Chowdhury, from Cambridge University, said: "These are interesting results that potentially stimulate new lines of scientific inquiry and encourage careful reappraisal of our current nutritional guidelines.'
I'm not sure what to believe, but I won't be over-eating anything fatty or fully of saturated or polyunsaturated fats as I don't want another heart attack.
