Saturated fat and cardiovascular disease

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

“A meta-analysis of prospective epidemiologic studies showed that there is no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of CHD or CVD. More data are needed to elucidate whether CVD risks are likely to be influenced by the specific nutrients used to replace saturated fat.”

I eat a lot of fat, compared to what most people think you should eat. What I don’t eat is a lot of carbs. I just wanted to post this to show some more proof to the sugar-isn’t-bad, fat-is deniers that they’re wrong. Think about it, for 100 or 200 thousand years, as humans, we’ve been eating mainly meat and fat. Bone marrow, organs, muscles, brain, entire animals, and the occasional nut. Fruits and veggies were rare, especially where we come from (Africa). This current state of food availability is completely unnatural. Cereal and bread? Fruit salads and vegan diets? Are you crazy?

Yes I eat the occasional piece of bread and LOVE IT, holy shit that’s my weakness. I could eat an entire baguette smothered in butter and that’s a gourmet meal.
