    Replacing 5% of calories from refined carbohydrates with plant-based monounsaturated fat was associated with a 14% lower risk of coronary heart disease according to a study by researchers at Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts, USA.

    Monounsaturated fat from animal sources did not have the same effect.

    Replacing 5% of calories from refined carbohydrates with animal-based monounsaturated fat was associated with a 11% greater risk of coronary heart disease (as opposed to a 14% lower risk when replacing with plant-based monounsaturated fat).

    Subjects: 63,442 women from the Nurses’ Health Study, and 29,942 men from the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study

    The study investigated the associations of monounsaturated fat intake from plant and animal sources with coronary heart disease risk separately among 63,442 women from the Nurses’ Health Study (1990–2012) and 29,942 men from the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study (1990–2012).
