    Default Research Review: Should you balance your fats for better health?

    HELEN KOLLIAS
    May 10th, 2013

    For fifty years, scientists told us that too much saturated fat was bad for our hearts, and advised us to switch to polyunsaturated fats instead. Oops.

    It turns out that polyunsaturated fats are not all equal, and some of them actually increase the odds of cardiovascular disease and death.

    In this week’s Research Review, we’ll explore why mistaken conclusions in science can sometimes become accepted wisdom – and which fats you really should eat for better health.
    Introduction
    Ever notice how a particular food can become all the rage – only to drop out of fashion a few years later?

    And how the food or nutrient that our doctors told us to get more of in 1990 can morph into the one they are warning us against in 2013?
    It’s enough to harden a person’s arteries.

    This is an excellent overview of fats in the diet. I really like Ms. Kollias balanced approach emphasizing good fat in real food in proper balance.
