Is Saturated Fat REALLY at the Heart of Heart Disease?

Is Saturated Fat REALLY at the Heart of Heart Disease?

Life is a dance, a rhythmic flow of movement that gracefully undulates with give and take. Unless you’ve seen me dance, then it’s more like a manic seizure set to music. But I digress. My point is that sometimes you have to take a step back to look forward, and that’s where our story begins. Let’s review saturated fats relationship with heart disease. Back in the 1950’s we were told to eat corn and sunflower oils as healthy alternatives to saturated fat. As our consumption of polyunsaturated fats rose so did the rate of heart disease. Food companies developed new “non-fat” versions replacing fat with carbohydrates and synthetic chemicals and thus heart disease flourished. The net result was a population scared of saturated fat yet driving themselves to diabetes and heart disease in record numbers by eating an abundance of high glycemic carbohydrates and processed food.

More Good, Less Bad
The term “saturated fat” became synonymous with red meat and eggs. Once again I will take one step back by saying I am about to discuss grass fed organic beef because that is the only red meat any health conscious carnivore would eat, right? Your standard grocery store beef is full of hormones and antibiotics and we’re just not going to go there. Break red meat down into its components and you will find that most of its fat is the healthy oleic acid, the same fat in olive oil that we have been encouraged to eat. Only 35% of the total fat is saturated and that is the very component that helps increase our beneficial HDL. Multiple studies have shown us that an elevated HDL is good for our heart and blood vessels. A low HDL level is the very factor that most reliably predicts those at risk for heart attacks. Saturated fats actually increase the beneficial HDL in our bodies, which in turn have a direct function in removing the harmful LDL. Oh, and by the way, lets not overlook the healthy omega 3 fats that come naturally when you feed cattle grass instead of grain.

Enough “Experts” – What Do Population Studies Tell Us?
Cultural studies of Polynesian tribes who consume a diet high in saturated fat show low occurrence of heart disease. The Swiss have higher cholesterol levels than Americans yet suffer fewer heart attacks. A Swedish study looking at obesity in children showed that a LOW fat intake was associated with a higher BMI (body fat) and blamed insulin resistance secondary to high carbohydrate diets. These diets lacked adequate omega 3 fats, vitamin D, and iron. A recent study of low fat diets showed that patients placed on a low (18%) fat diet experienced a 9% reduction in cardiovascular risk while those on a moderate fat (33%) enjoyed a 14% reduction in cardiovascular risk.
