BMJ kirjoitti:Saturated fats are not harmful, really?
Personally, I accepted the idea of harm from saturated fats through the following chain of reasoning: 1. saturated fat intake increases serum LDL cholesterol (proven repeatedly); 2. LDL cholesterol is a long-term risk factor for cardiovascular diseases (proven repeatedly); 3. lowering LDL cholesterol reduces cardiovascular events (also proven repeatedly). But like proponents of tobacco industry, some proponents of saturated fats are demanding more studies and direct proof in the same trial. This is practically impossible. Nowadays we cannot put people in control and diet groups for several years to directly prove that saturated fat intake increases cardiovascular events.
Once they could do it: in the 12-year, controlled Finnish mental hospital study (1) saturated fats were replaced with polyunsaturated fat and the results were compatible with the theory chain above: cholesterol was reduced with the experimental diet and cardiac events were reduced accordingly.
