FAT INTAKE

Higher fat intake associated with 23% lower risk of death over 7.4 years

The one-fifth of people consuming the most fat were 23% LESS likely to die during a 7.4 year follow-up compared to the one-fifth consuming the least according to the PURE study which followed 135,335 people, 35-70 years-old from 18 countries from 5 continents for a median follow-up of 7.4 years.

ALZHEIMER’S & DIET

People with the highest percent fat intake were 44% less likely to have dementia

The one-fourth of people with the highest percent intake of fat (37% of calories) were 44% less likely to have mild cognitive impairment or dementia compare to the one-fourth of people with the lowest percent fat intake (25% of calories) according to a study from researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, USA.

“A dietary pattern with relatively high caloric intake from carbohydrates and low caloric intake from fat and proteins may increase the risk of [mild cognitive impairment] or dementia in elderly persons,” the authors of the study concluded.

PROSTATE CANCER

Fat intake is not associated with prostate cancer

Fat intake is not associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer according to a 2015 review of the research.

Saturated fat intake was not.

Polyunsaturated fat was not.

Monounsaturated fat was not.

And total fat intake was not.

The same was true for advanced stage prostate cancer (with slightly different relative risks than those shown below).

“Current published cohort studies suggest no association between total fat, saturated fat, or unsaturated fat intake and the risk for [prostate cancer],” the authors of the paper concluded.

TRANS FATS, CANCER AND HEART DISEASE

The increase in trans fats paralleled the increase in cancer and heart disease notes Mary Enig, PhD

"Trans fatty acids are sufficiently similar to natural fats that the body readily incorporates them into the cell membrane; once there their altered chemical structure creates havoc with thousands of necessary chemical reactions—everything from energy provision to prostaglandin production," writes lipid biochemist, Mary Enig, PhD, and journalist, Sally Fallon Morell in a wonderful, eye-opening article about fats and heart disease titled The Oiling of America.
"But most of the trans isomers in modern hydrogenated fats are new to the human physiology and by the early 1970's a number of researchers had expressed concern about their presence in the American diet, noting that their increasing use had paralleled the increase in both heart disease and cancer," they note.

RED MEAT

One serving of unprocessed red meat per day associated with 18% greater risk of death from CVD

Every one serving increase of unprocessed red meat per day was associated with a 18% greater risk of death from cardiovascular disease (CVD) over 22 to 28 years according to two studies analyzed by researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

PRUDENT DIET

More people die on ‘Prudent Diet’ than control diet, 26 vs 6, Michael Eades, MD

In this video clip, Michael Eades, MD, author of Protein Power and other low carb books, tells about the Anti-Coronary Club Trial that was done in the In this trial which was launched in the late-1950’s men were assigned to eat a Prudent Diet group which reduced saturated fat and increased polyunsaturated fat and reduced overall fat intake and compared the number of heart attacks and deaths to a control group.

In this trial, men were assigned to eat a Prudent Diet which reduced saturated fat and increased polyunsaturated fat and reduced overall fat intake, and compared the number of heart attacks and deaths to a group of men in the control group who were not asked to change their diet.

After some period of time there were
26 total deaths in the Prudent Diet group
versus only
6 total deaths in the control group.

TRANS FATS AND THE AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION (AHA)

The American Heart Association convinced to remove information about trans fats notes Mary Enig, PhD

A 1968 statement from the American Heart Association (AHA) noted that Partial hydrogenated vegetable oils contained trans fats rather than natural cis fats, but the statement was never distributed, and a researcher from Proctor and Gamble convinced the AHA's medical director to remove this statement before their recommendations were released to the public.

Lipid biochemist, Mary Enig, PhD, and journalist, Sally Fallon Morell write about this in a wonderful, eye-opening article about fats and heart disease titled The Oiling of America. Read the entire article | Email this article

SATURATED FAT

‘The idea that saturated fats cause heart disease is completely wrong’ says biochemist Mary Enig

"The idea that saturated fats cause heart disease is completely wrong, but the statement has been “published” so many times over the last three or more decades that it is very difficult to convince people otherwise unless they are willing to take the time to read and learn what all the economic and political factors were that produced the anti-saturated fat agenda," lipid biochemist Mary Enig was quoted as saying in an interview when asked if saturated fat causes heart disease.

[This is part of an article written by Uffe Ravnskov, MD PhD, and is an excerpt from his book The Cholesterol Myths: Exposing the Fallacy That Saturated Fat and Cholesterol Cause Heart Disease.]

[Note: The book Fat and Cholesterol are Good for You is a shortened, simplified and updated version of Dr. Ravnskov's first book, "The Cholesterol Myths".] Read the entire article | Email this article

LOW CALORIE VS LOW FAT

Low-calorie diet causes twice as much weight loss as low-fat: 24.6 lbs vs 13.4 lbs in 6 months

People assigned to eat a low-calorie diet of 1000-1200 calories per day lost nearly twice as much weight loss as those assigned to limit their fat intake to 22-26 grams per day according to a 1999 study by Jean Harvey-Berino from the University of Vermont.

Those assigned to the low-caloried diet lost an average of 24.6 lbs after six months versus 13.4 lbs for those assigned to the fat-restricted diet. Read the entire article | Email this article
