Default Saturated fat - study

Can't post the full article, but this one is worth a read and can be found here ... will pluck out some highlights:

Quote:
Vegetable Fat not the Route to a Healthy Heart, Study Finds
by Mariëtte Le Roux

PARIS (AFP) - Replacing animal fat in the human diet with vegetable oil seems not to lower heart disease risk, and might even boost it, according to a study published Wednesday that challenges a cornerstone of dietary advice.

Switching from saturated to unsaturated Omega-6 fats did result in lower blood cholesterol in a trial with nearly 10,000 participants, it said, but not the expected reduction in heart disease deaths.

In fact, those with a greater reduction in cholesterol "had a higher rather than a lower risk of death," according to the research published by the medical journal BMJ.
Because of my constant refusal to take statins, my docs finally said there is no point doing lipid profiles since I won't follow any of their recommendations. I agreed! My lipids got much better with LC/HF, but still weren't great. Studies like this are so validating.

Quote:
The new study, led by Christopher Ramsden at the National Institutes of Health, re-analysed data from a randomised controlled trial conducted 45 years ago with 9,423 residents of state mental hospitals and nursing home in Minnesota.
Quote:
"As expected, the diet enriched with linoleic acid (a fatty acid found in plant oils) lowered cholesterol levels," said a statement by The BMJ.

But "this did not translate to improved survival. In fact, participants who had greater reduction in blood cholesterol had higher, rather than lower, risk of death."
Oh, I am so taking this to my GP.

Quote:
In January, updated US dietary guidelines reiterated that saturated fats should make up less than 10 percent of a day's food intake -- a recommendation that now "will be under increased scrutiny", according to Veerman.

"If blood cholesterol values are not a reliable indicator of risk of cardiovascular disease, then a careful review of the evidence that underpins dietary recommendations is warranted," he wrote in The BMJ.
Veerman is a lecturer at the University of Queensland School of Public Health in Australia.

A 'careful review' is surely long overdue. Wonder when the US will finally step up and do this as well?

I find it interesting that one or two poorly devised studies by Ancel Keys, et al, started the idea that saturated fats were bad and caused CVD - and several well devised studies that show the contrary time and time again are routinely dismissed.

it would appear that ancel keys opted to ignore the facts in order to bolster his own wonderful hypothesis.

And may have fudged data to fit his hypothesis as well. Fraud perhaps? And bullied the h*** out of anyone who questioned him.

Yeah, outright fudging via many means, including non-publishing of data.

The analysis of the unpublished data on which the article above was based, can be found here .
