“Saturated fat does not cause heart disease and we need to get it back into our diets,” he stated. But it needs to be the right kinds for saturated fats, such as certified sustainable Malaysian palm oil.

“The most recent evidence indicates you can consume a reasonable level of saturated fats and it may not negatively impact your cholesterol levels,” said USC School of Pharmacy Research Professor Roger Clemens.
Please forget about following a fat-free or low-fat diet. The research is now very clear that those diets were a mistake from the beginning. Not only don’t they promote weight loss, they may also have serious unwanted health consequences.
