The Real Reason the AHA Still Fear Saturated Fat?

So the American Heart Association (AHA) recently announced they still believe that natural saturated fats are bad, bad, bad. That's quite surprising considering all the new reviews of all relevant science showing zero evidence for that old and failed theory.

So how come the AHA still somehow manages to stay a believer? Who knows, maybe they'd rather not bite the hand that feeds them. It turns out they recently received a cool $500,000 as a little gift from the competing vegetable oil industry:
