    Default Does Saturated Fat increase risk for heart disease?

    I know this has been mantra for some time to limit saturated fat intake, but I've seen recent studies indicating there's no link between saturated fat and heart disease.

    Do we need to revisit our views on this?

    Here were some recent articles from Time magazine on the subject:

    And a meta analysis from NCBI:

    Just like what lesathomas mentioned, eat everything in moderation. There are certain studies that proved that too much consumption of saturated fat will increase your risk for heart disease and cancer. It also depends on the source of the saturated fat. Just like in paleo diet, fats still contribute on the wholeness of a balanced nutrition so watch out for that.

    from a study:

    A different 2017 systematic review of controlled randomized controlled trials concluded that replacing saturated fats with mostly n-6 polyunsaturated fats is unlikely to reduce coronary heart disease (CHD) events, CHD mortality or total mortality. The 2017 review showed that inadequately controlled trials (e.g., failing to control for other lifestyle factors) that were included in earlier meta-analyses explain the prior results
