I won't rely too much on paleohacks as a source for information. I think this latest interview reveals his current views on saturated fats. He is one of the longest proponent of LCHF, not just for health but for longevity.

Sam – Bagels without butter? Ron Rosedale: Keep the butter; give up the bagel | Me and My Diabetes

Ron: Under the question, then, which fat to eat, if you had to eat one or the other, which was the second half of your question, the saturated fats are among the least problematic. They don’t oxidize as much. You hear about antioxidants, people take antioxidants. Oxidation is a player. It’s far less important than it’s given credit for as far as causing aging and age-related disease. And we need oxidation, breathing is oxidation, so it’s not whether you have oxidation or you don’t. Like everything it needs to be orchestrated. Where, when, and how it’s used will determine health and life and death.

Ron: The saturated fats don’t oxidize as much. That’s good and bad. It’s good in that is causes less lipid peroxidation, it causes less damage in some membranes. It’s not so good in that it’s a little bit harder to burn because it doesn’t oxidize as readily. However, you can change that by going into a physiology of burning fat more continuously, and then your body gets good at burning fat, and then it burns saturated fat, and then the type of fat you eat becomes less relevant because you’ll just burn it.

Ron: All that being said, if you’re not really good at burning fat, eating omega-6 fatty acids, which are high in widely used vegetable oils, such as corn oil and soy oil, will be more detrimental to your health by fat than eating saturated fats, as far as causing cardiovascular disease and other diseases of aging itself. The omega-6 fatty acids are far more detrimental. So the institutional public policy of banning full-fat butter and instead using high Omega-6, poly-unsaturated margarines, which is what we’ve been told to do since the 1950s, has very much adversely affected our health. Data recovered from decades ago are finally coming around to show that. In other words, almost every health recommendation given for long-term health—take calcium for strong bones, eat a low-fat diet, take statins to lower cholesterol, cholesterol is the prime cause of heart disease—all of these things couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, they’re opposite the truth. You would do far better just to run the other way.

Thanks kantim bookmarked to read next hour or two after i finish reading this zillion letter article he wrote

Dr. Rosedale: The High Carbohydrate Diet and Related Health Problems - presented by Dr. Bass

Edit: kantim i think even though he doesn't mind saturated fat i think from all the articles i have read he still prefers getting more of the fats coming from monosaturated fat vs saturated fat do you agree?

Like i said he definitely is not against saturated fats but just think he slightly prefer the other.
