New Study: People Eating MORE Saturated Fat Get LESS Heart Disease

This is fantastic. A new Dutch study followed 36,000 people and tried to find a connection between the amount of saturated fat they ate and the risk of heart disease.

This time there actually was a connection. People eating more saturated fat (like butter) got way less heart disease!

This should be impossible

Obviously this is only a statistical trial and does not prove cause and effect. It doesn't prove that butter protects against heart disease. But it's still another big nail in the coffin for the failed low-fat diet. Because it's almost impossible to get a result like this if saturated fat was really dangerous.

Imagine doing a study and finding that smokers get way less lung cancer, and the more they smoke the less lung cancer they got. That would be weird. It would also never happen. Because unlike natural saturated fat, smoking is actually bad for you.

Here's another fantastically awkward thing that would not happen if saturated fat was as bad as some people still think: Stunning: Saturated Fat and the European Paradox
