A study from Ohio State University has found doubling saturated fat in their subjects’ diets had no effect on the levels of saturated fat in the blood. Conversely, increasing carbohydrates in the diet prompted a steady increase in harmful fatty acids in the blood. Senior author Jeff Volek is quoted as saying that this, “… challenges the conventional wisdom that has demonized saturated fat and extends our knowledge of why dietary saturated fat doesn’t correlate with disease.” Here’s the scoop: http://news.osu.edu/news/2014/11/21/study-doubling-saturated-fat-in-the-diet-does-not-increase-saturated-fat-in-blood/
