Radd saidMost of the studies that were done on fat decades ago were grouped together with sugar consumption. Fat and sugar is a bad combination but saturated fat is actually important for the body.
I'm beginning to understand why you would think that getting a flu vaccination is a bad idea or that the Holocaust didn't happen.
You are a fucking liar and an asshole. Please quote where I EVER said the Holocaust didn't happen. Oh wait....you can't because I never said such a ridiculous thing.
What I stated about saturated fat is a fact. This is what started the bad press on saturated fat:
“Saturated fat has been demonized ever since Ancel Keys’s landmark ‘seven countries’ study in 1970,” writes Aseem Malhotra in a British Medical Journal review appropriately called “Saturated fat is not the major issue.”
As Malhotra and numerous other researchers point out, correlation is not causation, and Keys neglected to account for many factors that could also contribute to heart disease. Keys cherry-picked his data, conveniently excluding whatever didn’t fit his hypothesis. In fact, the countries he studied that had the highest rates of heart disease also were the countries with the highest intakes of sugar and refined carbohydrates. Was it the fat or the sugar? Turns out it was the sugar!
Even though critics pointed out these and other fallacies in Keys’s work, the public bought into the saturated-fat-is-harmful myth, avoiding it like the plague for decades and choosing instead inflammatory vegetable oils and trans fats in fake foods like margarine.
The truth becomes much more complicated. Some fats do raise cholesterol, whereas others lower cholesterol. Even when saturated fat does, the type of cholesterol becomes more important than cholesterol itself. Saturated fat does raise the LDL or bad cholesterol, but it also raises the good or HDL cholesterol. But sugar lowers HDL cholesterol. And it is the ratio of total to LDL cholesterol that is a far more important predictor of heart attacks than LDL cholesterol itself.
