DIETS RICH IN SATURATED FAT MAY ACTUALLY HELP PREVENT DIABETES AND HEART DISEASE

Natural fats improved the health of those participating in the study


Current dietary advice says foods containing high levels of saturated fats such as cream, butter, red meat, eggs and cheese should be avoided because they increase the risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and cancer.
But a study published in a leading medical journal has found the opposite is true, with a diet full of natural fats improving the health of people taking part.
Professor Sherif Sultan, a heart specialist from the University of Ireland, said: “We urgently need to overturn current dietary guidelines.”
