Saturated fat has not been given the 'all clear' for heart disease - Part One

I wrote about this earlier in 2014 and the new study has not shown anything that would change my mind nor change the long-term myriad of research on this topic.

The ‘new science’ is an analysis from early 2014 of 72 studies that included more than 600,000 people and suggested that saturated fat had no negative effect on heart disease. Several nutrition scientists believe the new analysis may be flawed – and there will be more to follow on this over the next 6-12 months I suspect.

“At first glance you might think then that this latest review offers substantially new insights into the effects of dietary fats on [Coronary Heart Disease]. However this is not the case” says an article by Dr Lisa Te Morenga, Professor Jim Mann, Professor Murray Skeaff, Professor Rod Jackson (University of Auckland), Professor Tony Blakely, Associate Professor Nick Wilson, and Dr Rachael McLean recently.
