Fat and Coronary Heart Disease

Updated: Jun 14, 2023

A study of the"Types of Dietary Fat and Risk of Coronary Heart Disease" published by the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, states:

  • High intakes of trans fat can contribute to increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

  • Increases LDL and triglycerides while lowering the HDL.

  • High intake of trans fat can promote insulin resistance in humans.

  • 1987 Study: Margarine was associated with a 50% increase in heart disease.

  • Butter, beef, pork, and lamb consumption did NOT increase risk.

  • Cookies and white bread DID INCREASE risk.

  • High consumption of hydrogenated vegetable oils raised serum cholesterol.

  • Sugar in terms of cookies, bread, candy, et. can increase your risk of heart disease as well as vegetable oils.

If you are eating nutrient dense, real food (butter, beef, veggies, fruit, honey), you will be better off.
