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.
