Isn't saturated fat dangerous?

The truth is there is still no consensus in the medical community on whether saturated fat is unhealthy or not. There is some research suggesting consumption of saturated fat is NOT linked to coronary heart disease, type-2 diabetes and the most common type of stroke. But there are also studies showing that the risk of cardiovascular events (including coronary heart disease) was reduced when saturated fats were replaced with polyunsaturated fats.

Some saturated fats, likeghee and virgincoconut oil have documented health benefits. The processing, storage condition and quality of fats all have a part to play in the complex relationship between diet and disease. ย But, overall it has been shown that a healthy diet, rich in nutritious green vegetables, will reduce the risks of most lifestyle diseases. One thing is for sure, losing weight, taking exercise, lowering blood pressure and preventing diabetes with the keto diet will have a far greater impact on your long term health than whether or not you eat saturated fats as part of a well-balanced keto diet.
