I have been reading lots of things that say saturated fat is harmless and
doesn't affect chance of heart attacks. It may be in the design of the
studies where the problem lies; I am not sure. Now if I posted the whole
thing, you would see five studies that have determined that low saturated
fat versus high makes no difference and that the substitution of saturated
fat with unsaturated fat does make a difference and lowers risk of
cardiovascular events. does anyone have an idea about whether there is
any truth to these conclusions or is it simply propaganda?

5 Studies on Saturated Fat Time to Retire The Myth?

Since the 1950s, people have believed that saturated fat is bad for human

This was originally based on observational studies showing that countries
that consumed a lot of saturated fat had higher rates of deaths from heart

The diet-heart hypothesis states that saturated fat raises LDL cholesterol
in the blood, which then supposedly lodges in the arteries and causes
heart disease.

Even though this hypothesis has never been proven, most official dietary
guidelines are based on it (1).
