For decades, conventional wisdom has been that consuming saturated fat is a surefire way to sabotage cardiovascular health, clog arteries and advance the path to a heart attack. A new paper published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology looked at the relationship between consuming saturated fat and the development of cardiovascular disease by conducting a review of articles published between 2010 and 2021 on the subject. The researchers found there is no scientific ground to demonize saturated fat as a cause of cardiovascular disease, and saturated fat naturally occurring in nutrient-dense foods can be safely included in the diet.
