Link Between Fats and Heart Disease Continues to Be Debunked

Yet another study has vindicated fat in the fight against heart disease. As reported by Live Science, experts now agree that cholesterol and saturated fats are not the culprits they were once made out to be in this devastating disease. Instead of focusing on fats, we should be concentrating on reducing inflammation in the body, researchers say.

It’s criminal how good fats and healthy cholesterol have been demonized through decades of deceit brought on by a flawed 1950s study that ended up marketing sugar and trans fats to you in place of what you should have been eating all along. The author of this study is also suspected of suppressing a different study showing that his idea of a “good” heart-healthy diet actually increased mortality, rather than saving lives.

The shocking truth is that for every 30-point drop in total cholesterol there was a 22 percent increased chance of death! Added to the many other trials that also found that replacing saturated fats with vegetable oils increase mortality risk from all causes, including coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease, and you have a recipe for disaster. Today, we know that mitochondrial function is at the heart of your health, and that optimizing it can help prevent cardiovascular disease, depression, type 2 diabetes, stroke and neurological dysfunction.

Four key lifestyle strategies for heart and overall health are exercise (ideally including some high-intensity interval training once you're able), non-exercise movement throughout each day, Peak Fasting and a whole food-based ketogenic diet. I explain the details of how to implement this kind of diet in my new book, "Fat for Fuel."
