Men and women consuming them most saturated fat vs least were 8% more likely to die over 26-32 yrs
Men and women in the top one-fifth for consuming the most saturated fat were 8% more likely to die over the next 26-32 years compared to the one-fifth of men and women consuming the least according to a study from researchers at Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.Read the entire article | Email this article
Every 5% increase in saturated fat associated with 8% greater risk of death over 26-32 years
When compared with the same number of calories from carbohydrate, every 5% increase in saturated fat intake was associated with an 8% greater risk of death over the next 26-32 years according to a study from researchers at Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.Read the entire article | Email this article

Higher saturated fat intake is associated with a 17% lower risk of heart disease, 2015 Dutch study
Total saturated fat intake was associated with a 17% lower risk of ischemic heart disease (both fatal and nonfatal) for every 5% of calories as saturated fat according to a Dutch study which followed 35,597 Dutch men and women from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition–Netherlands cohort for 12 years.
The study also found that:
- Substituting 5% of calories from saturated fat with carbohydrates was associated with a 23% higher risk.
- Substituting 5% of calories from saturated fat with monounsaturated fat was associated with a 30% higher risk.
- Substituting 5% of calories from saturated fat with polyunsaturated fat was associated with a 35% higher risk.
- Substituting 5% of calories from saturated fat with animal protein was associated with a 37% higher risk.
- Substituting 5% of calories from saturated fat with vegetable protein was associated with a 19% lower risk, but this was not statistically significant, meaning that this difference could have been due to random chance (a 17% chance that it was due to random chance).

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.Read the entire article | Email this article
Saturated fat is not associated with cardiovascular disease, 2010 study
A 2010 meta-analysis which looked at data from 21 studies with 5-23 years of follow-up on 347,747 people found that dietary saturated fat was not associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease (which includes heart attack and stroke).
“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 [coronary heart disease] or CVD [cardiovascular disease],” the authors concluded.Read the entire article | Email this article

POLYUNSATURATED FAT / BAD DIETARY ADVICE
Substituting dietary saturated fats with omega-6 linoleic acid INCREASED deaths by 62% over 5 years
The article was previously published on August 7, 2015.
Men who had experienced a recent coronary event and were told to replace dietary saturated fats (from animal fats, common margarines, and shortenings) with omega-6 polyunsaturated fat linoleic acid (from safflower oil and safflower oil polyunsaturated margarine) were 62% MORE likely to die—1.62 times more likely to die—over the next 5 years compared to men who were not given any dietary advice according to a recent analysis of an old study called The Sydney Diet Heart Study, a randomized controlled trial conducted from 1966 to 1973.
After five years, 17.6% of the men in the intervention group had died versus 11.8% in the control group.
The analysis was done by researchers at the US National Institutes of Health.Read the entire article | Email this article
