Saturated Fat Not Linked to Heart Disease: Study

A meta-analysis of 21 studies on 347,747 healthy adults suggests that dietary saturated fat is not linked to cardiovascular disease or stroke.

Those who consumed the most saturated fat were not more likely to develop heart disease than their peers.

The study’s authors say that further studies are needed to determine if heart disease risks are possibly influenced by nutrients used to replace saturated fat
