Is saturated fat bad?

The main charge against saturated fat (the kind found in butter, cream, red meat, coconut and chocolate) is that diets high in saturated fat have been linked with increased risk of heart disease. But while eating more saturated fat may raise your LDL (aka “bad”) cholesterol numbers, it also tends to increase the size of those LDL cholesterol particles. Numerous studies have shown that saturated fat intake increases heart disease risk factors, including LDL (bad) cholesterol and apolipoprotein B (apoB).

LDL transports cholesterol in. We now know that not all saturated fats behave the same in the body. Full-fat dairy and dark chocolate are full of sat fats but don’t raise the risk for cardiovascular disease. It helps control.

Saturated Fats Are Not Bad For You In the past, saturated fats were a taboo as it helps in abetting the development of LDL Cholesterol. This misconception does not hold water anymore!! It is only the small LDL particles that are dangerous. What if I would tell you that maybe we got it all wrong when it comes to saturated fat and.

For decades, health experts have urged us to step away from the butter, cheese and meat.The saturated fat in these foods, they warned, would clog our arteries and raise our risk for heart disease and stroke.In fact, the American Heart Association now advises limiting saturated fat intake to no more than five to six percent of total calories, meaning if you top your sandwich with two slices of. Saturated means the fat is solid at room temperature. They are stable and “tougher” when exposed to high heat. Inaccurate and manipulated research more than a half-century ago created a stubborn dogma that has lasted for decades and which links saturated fat and cholesterol with heart disease.

March 20, 2014 Saturated fats have long been called ”bad fats” for their effect on the heart. But a new analysis calls into question whether they’re really that bad after all. The finding. The American Heart Association recommends limiting saturated fats – which are found in butter, cheese, red meat and other animal-based foods.

Decades of sound science has proven it can raise your “bad” cholesterol and put you at higher risk for heart disease. The more important thing to remember is the overall dietary picture. When putting together a Sports Nutrition plan for yourself, make sure you understand the dangers of Bad Fats.

A third potentially bad fat, known as dietary cholesterol, is technically not a fat, but it’s often grouped with the bad fats since it also elevates the artery-clogging cholesterol in your blood, though not as much as saturated fat or trans fat.

Saturated fat is a good source of energy for the body, but an excess in the diet will cause cholesterol to be carried in the blood in the more unhealthy form of low-density lipoprotein and triglycerides (LDL and TGs).

  • I have one doubt.Provided hydrogenation can also take place inside the body, then what if unsaturated fats get hydrogenated to saturated fats? Wouldnt it lead to more “bad fats getting stored ” in our tummy? Please explain

  • For me it’s very harmful because it raises Lp-PLA2 levels and increases calcium scores. Coconut oil in particular is one of the worst saturated fats.

  • I’m very troubled that our “science” on diet took such a hard turn in the wrong direction, Eat a Low Fat/High Carb Diet!!! Then when you get Type 2 Diabetes, just take this medicine that will never cure you, but will make you worse. Then 6 months ago I discovered Intermittent Fasting and the Low Carb/High Fat Diet, my health improved, and I lost a lot of excess weight (almost 60 pounds so far). All I can say is that I’m VERY thankful for all the Doctors that continue to expose the flaws in the High Carb/Low Fat Diet and how Processed Food is like eating poison. Their videos taught me the right way to eat.

  • Where I come from old people still say that they are walking and doing work in because they used to consume a lot of ghee ( clarified butter) so it’s vary evident that saturated fats are not dangerous..

  • Avoid seed oils like canola, corn and soy oils.
    Eat olive oil, coconut oil, ghee or butter in moderation and don’t be afraid of their saturated fat. (Their role in heart disease has been disproven)
    And try to get some omega 3’s in your diet from sources like Wild salmon, mackerel and sardines, as well as flax seeds and walnuts.

  • Scumbags at the beginning portraying lies and callously joke about an extremely threatening infliction to food. Thousands of times now, and never intending to eat a single percent of saturated fat again, my face, stomach, and brain all end up catastrophically effected after any intake amount. Saturated fat always caused severe psychiatric issues, unwanted excess weight gain, and an inability to follow through with any normalized productive activity. There is a very specific horrible effect from it, and I hope someday people, especially anyone struggling with mental or physical health, will realize what truly transpires after eating saturated fat. Cognitive functioning ends up destroyed, and will enter a realm of thinking entirely differentiated from what is existent if not eating it. You have to look good to feel good. Saturated fat makes you look like shit and feel as such( your brain is deliberately under attack after consumption)

  • On page 23 there is a fantastic nutrition trick that will tell your body that you’re not starving and keep your metabolic rate sky high. Now, this is going to shock you, yeah there’s a type of actual saturated fat, yeah you know the kind the media tells you is all bad no this saturated fat is healthy and even supports fat burning metabolism.

  • “We did not become the dominant species on this planet because saturated fat was bad for us”
    how arrogant this wiew is. human domination, really?

  • There is no evidence that high levels of total cholesterol or of “bad” cholesterol cause heart disease, according to a new paper by 17 international physicians based on a review of patient data of almost 1.3 million people. The authors also say their review shows the use of statins – cholesterol lowering drugs – is “of doubtful benefit” when used as primary prevention of cardiovascular disease. The authors include Galway-based Prof Sherif Sultan, professor of the International Society for Vascular Surgery; Scottish-based Dr Malcolm Kendrick, author of The Great Cholesterol Con; and Dr David M Diamond, a US-based neuroscientist and cardiovascular disease researcher. Prof Sultan said millions of people all over the world, including many with no history of heart disease, are taking statins “despite unproven benefits and serious side effects”. XXX The failure of a study on the cholesterol-lowering drug evacetrapib was reported in April 2016 by its manufacturer, Eli Lilly, after spending $90 million of research and development costs. “The drug, evacetrapib, was pulled after it FAILED TO PREVENT one single case of heart attack, stroke, by-pass surgery, or angina—even though it successfully doubled levels of ‘good’ cholesterol and lowered ‘bad’ cholesterol. These results were presented to the American College of Cardiology’s in April 2016, recounting that researchers found that drug did not demonstrate any clinically meaningful cardiovascular risk benefit, despite a 130% increase in “good” cholesterol, or HDL cholesterol, and a 37% reduction in “bad” cholesterol, which is called LDL cholesterol. In the meantime, Pfizer pharmaceutical famously spent $800 million on a large trial combining its blockbuster statin Lipitor with torcetrapib, a CETP inhibitor; the combination of the two drugs was ultimately found to RAISE THE RISK OF DEATH and heart problems in patients. In 2012, Roche also scrapped development of its CETP inhibitor, dalcetrapib, due to a “lack of clinically meaningful efficacy.” “This is a a blow to the cholesterol theorists.” Evacetrapib is the third CETP failure. The first, torcetrapib, actually increased the rate of CARDIOVASCULAR DEATHS and disease despite lowering bad cholesterol levels. Conclusion: the use of Lipitor and torcetrapib, dalcetrapib, and evacetrapib increased the good cholesterol while decreasing the bad cholesterol, however; it surely resulted in an increase of cardiovascular deaths. xxxxxxx Researchers at the Tulane University School of Medicine used electron beam tomography (EBT) to measure the progression of plaque buildup in heart-attack patients taking statin drugs. EBT is a very accurate way to measure occlusion from calcium in the arteries. Contrary to expectations, the researchers discovered that the progression of coronary artery calcium (CAC) was significantly greater in patients receiving statins compared with event-free subjects despite similar levels of LDL-lowering. Said the researchers: “Continued expansion of CAC may indicate failure of some patients to benefit from statin therapy and an increased risk of having cardiovascular events (Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol, April 1, 2004).

  • satfat= very building type of fat
    if u r fatass or have shitty arteries stay away from it
    or pretty much all fat for that matter
    go fast u glutton

  • Saturated fat is approx 24% of our body fatwhy would my body store 7 Kg of a “Toxin”. BTW Saturated fat is essential for our bodies energy regulation via mitochondrial reverse electron transportwhich is perturbed by PUFAsthe real culprit.

  • Let’s see if I’ve understood correctly. Please give me a feedback….
    In other words: the amount of saturated fats I get in a day doesn’t mean that much alone. We need to look at what else I eat. If my net carbs are for instance under 50gr (sometimes even under 20 gr) and my proteins around 90 gr (I’m 50kg for 166cm) they are not harmful…. (I really hope it’s like this ;-))
    If someone has less saturated fats BUT lots of carbs, especially from trash food and fructose, it’s worse.

  • For me this video really explained fats well and I would use this to help teaching foods students about fats because visuals are sometimes easier than lecture.

  • It’s important to emphasize the context of the situation that matters. Of course, saturated fat can be bad for you if you combine it with processed carbs and sugar ala the SAD diet. Saturated fat on a whole foods paleo-esque diet is probably safe. So, it’s never one macronutrient or food group that causes the issues it’s the metabolic context and the individual’s current condition. With that being said, I wouldn’t recommend people with diabetes or obesity to start eating a ton of saturated fat because they’re still insulin resistant.

  • now a days scientific reach is trash, saying one thing and after some timed changing or differ, utd unability to research rather then saying sm”new fatcs come in front of us”, its all non scence and ways yo get budget from ppl and government., image change ur statement in court like this every time, u will be in jail for 50 years.

  • “The oiling of america” by sally fallon morell will complement this video. The weston a price foundation has plenty of resources like articles about fats if you are a student looking for info

  • This is pure genius. we need well-rounded, fact-based research from several credible sources for the best understanding. THANK YOU!

  • Help us make more videos like this and get access to EXCLUSIVE videos plus other great rewards: https://www.patreon.com/AlilaMedicalMedia/posts

  • Very nice, thank you. Although that would make a video a bit longer, I suggest after each idea expressed you give several seconds for the viewer to digest te information, before moving to the next idea/passage

  • Where I come from old people still say that they are walking and doing work in because they used to consume a lot of ghee ( clarified butter) so it’s vary evident that saturated fats are not dangerous..

  • On page 23 there is a fantastic nutrition trick that will tell your body that you’re not starving and keep your metabolic rate sky high so you burn fat all the time most quote on quote diets end up leaving your body to believe that it’s starving and that’s why your body holds on to that stubborn fat it’s the last to go for a good reason it thinks you’re starving. There’s a way to trick it. Now this is going to shock you yeah there’s a type of actual saturated fat yeah you know the kind the media tells you is all bad no this saturated fat is healthy and even supports fat burning metabolism.

  • Very good explanation! However a few have a question of the saem type. Why does unsaturated fats decrease LDL levels adn increase HDL levels? Why does saturated fats increase both LDL and HDL? Why does transfer increase LDL levels and decreases HDL levels?

  • OMG! This video made everything so clear! I’m not really good at chemistry but I understood everything including the theories so perfectly!!! ������

    Thank you so much for making this video!!!

  • Everyone on here is only disagreeing because you want to eat what you like and not based on the truth. The numbers dont lie educate yourself and evolve, watch forks over knives and read everything you can find about a plant based diet and you will see why it reverses ALL diseases period. The healthiest people on earth do not eat animal products.

  • OMG! This video made everything so clear! I’m not really good at chemistry but I understood everything including the theories so perfectly!!! ������

    Thank you so much for making this video!!!

  • Do you believe that LDL cholesterol is bad for you? If you do then you should be aware of a study in the The Journal of the American Medical Association that shows that the more meat (saturated fat) that you feed test subjects, the more their blood LDL cholesterol rises.

  • Nice animation, although We have to get over the “good and bad cholesterol” and focus more on causes of inflation and small ldl particles

  • Thank you for this; people need to learn that fat is good for you. I used to think low-fat was the way to do it, and I ended up with severe brain fog and depression from lack of fat. BTW do you have an idea of how people with chronic pain can work through DOMS? I did some strength training yesterday and my pain is through the roof today.

  • im a teacher and i was looking for a good summary of the topic of fat to my high school class. this is hands down the best and clearest video on the topic. I am inspired as a teacher. Well Done

  • Thank God for some common sense about “FAT” I think the
    people who go on and on about saturated fats need to get their Fats right or is
    that their Facts right!!!!

  • I just bought a beautiful slab of blue cheese and then I found out it contains a lot of trans-fats,
    I guess eating once won’t do any harm:D

  • Scumbags at the beginning portraying lies and callously joke about an extremely threatening infliction to food.

  • Was expecting a simple explanation in layman’s term for scientifically challenged like myself. Didn’t like anything. I only saw stick figure in dance pose!

  • Nice visual explanation of the different fats. Easy to understand. My one complaint is the statement that saturated fat increases LDL, which is bad. Recent studies show that saturated fat increases larger LDL, which is not associated with heart disease or mortality. It does not raise the dense VLDL, which is associated with heart disease.

  • Replace natural fats with these oils that are grown by the same corporations that are paying us to conduct our studies on how natural fats are bad.

  • On page 23 there is a fantastic nutrition trick that will tell your body that you’re not starving and keep your metabolic rate sky high so you burn fat all the time most quote on quote diets end up leaving your body to believe that it’s starving and that’s why your body holds on to that stubborn fat it’s the last to go for a good reason it thinks you’re starving.

  • “This new study suggest saturated fats are safe to eat. That is so confusing, so let’s instead just not eat them”

    Very informative, thank you

  • Oluve oil, avocaso oil and nuts mainly contain omega 6 fatty acids, and not enough omega 3 acids. This creates an imbalance, which is why these oils shouldn’t be used in excess. Some essential omega 3 chains are only found in fish and other sea organisms. Natural saurated fats are good for your health.

  • So how do Eskimos live on whale blubber and have low incidence of heart disease? I think there’s something else in the common American diet that causes disease.

  • Its what our ancestors ate..they ate the entire animal kingdom…what they HUNTED…this deck of card thing is ridiculous…you think they stopped at that portion��? They want people sick and weak for big pharma

  • Carbs and sugar had my BP at 145/90….my entire adult life! As soon as I quit the sugar and cut my carbs down to less than a 100 grams per day….within 2 weeks I had a BP of 110/70…sometimes 98/65…….LEGIT! Try it….and follow it to the T and see the results for yourself. This while living on bacon, eggs, and steak. We were all lied to….time for change.

  • Go get the book “EAT BACON DON’T JOG”… It’s an easy read and really simplifies it all. Saturated fat is the best thing you can eat. Avoid sugar, grains, and heavy aerobic exercise, which is useless. Exercise doesn’t make you lose weightyour diet does.

  • “Fat causes heart disease. Sugar is good for you. Don’t eat butter-use margarine”….. said no one with any brains in 2019. Wake up Mayo clinic… 1976 called, they want their nutrition and food pyramid blueprints back.

  • weird that my body is 10% saturated fat, if its so dangerous. i have about 0,03% sugar in my body but you recommend i eat my weight in sugar every year.. super weird!

  • If you put a little planning into the diet it makes a big difference.  I believe you can make a balanced diet from meat, but you’ll need liver, spleen, and kidney, I think.  But, you don’t need much offal, just a bit.  It’s easy to get too many calories on a meat diet, and you should probably exercise like a hunter.  If you do that, it may be the healthiest diet, this isn’t a simple recipe, however.  I would still take a vitamin e supplement to match guidelines and you might need to do a few other things to meat dietary guideline.  I’ve been looking at dietary guidelines and you don’t really need bean as much as you need whole grains, which contain lots of protein, or you can also use bran or germ.  Research regarding the supposed unhealthiness of meat usually includes processed meat, in fact, I haven’t seen anything recently that does not.  Also, the avoidance of dairy for people who can handle the lactose seem contradicted by how easy it is to get dietary calcium with small amounts.  He wants people to eat six cups of leafy greens or something, that’s basically what it comes down to.  As it is, it’s pretty hard to avoid eating a cup of greens and having a balanced diet, and a cup is a huge bowl full when fluffed.  Besides, if you eat no meat, then it’s very hard to get your B12, so you can eat like 1/2 oz of liver or 3oz of clams or something similar to get at that.  Most people can do that.  And you can eat clams because they’re low in mercury, so you would only have to eat two bites of liver a couple days a week.  I mean, in order to get a natural diet going on, cause I know what you’re thinking, that maybe I’m talking vegetarians into eating meat, nope.  It just takes a lot more meat to get those vitamins than a few bits of liver, which is also very inexpensive.  You can likely special order them natural grass fed or whatever from you butcher and they’ll still be inexpensive.  You can get them from canned clam chowder too, lol.  I learned this by messing around with diet software.  You can get most stuff easily in 1500 calories and then hit the goal for K with bananas and potatoes that give lots of calories.  You need cereal grains to hit some and cheese is easy too, so that’s a lot of calories there too, but the baffling ones are D, E, K, and B12.  You can only supplement a little K, so you fill your calorie needs with bananas and potatoes to patch that up as possible.  D you get from the sun, but since there’s a contradiction there, use D3 from a bottle.  E from a bottle.  And then some meat for the B12 or get that from a bottle.  The simple one I came up with first was 1C oat groats, 1C spinach, 1large bell pepper,.3lb cheese, 3oz beef liver (skip occasionally), 1 egg, and then bananas for calories.  I just ate the oats like nuts because that’s 4Cs of oatmeal and I was not interested.  I couldn’t handle the liver. 

  • One of the best explanations of fat. I would had put a bit more time to explain Omegas fats but you might do that on a separate video

  • This is how it is to me they thought saturated fat was bad because they see LDL levels go up and it leads to bad things yet now using Lipid-electrophoresis they can separate the Low density lipo protein (LDL) into its separate constituents and see only certain ones oxidize and due to carbohydrates which are all converted into glucose, and in times of insulin resistance free flowing glucose binds to the lipo protein or specifically a protein (apo-b100) that attaches to the lipo protein and tells it where to go and now the molecule is to big or is unrecognized and cant be taken up by the liver so it travels back through our circulation and gets taken up by (macrophage) in a blood vessel so now oxidizes LDL is building up in the blood vessel lmao.

    Learned alot of this from one video and some from school
    Video
    Why eating saturated fat wont kill you, but vegetable oil might

    The amount of information i have learned in the past day from one video hahaha

    This is just the cholesterol aspect saturated is also better because its more stable do its structure like the truss of a bridge

    I will learn all this

  • Thanks so much for this video! I was trying to convince people that dietary fat is not bad.. but no one is believing me.. the problem is that even doctors here are still telling people to use low fat products:)

  • LOL. All these random people giving out health advice. Thanks, really sweet of you, but I’m going to trust the Mayo Clinic over random youtube comments.

  • This guy has no idea what he is talking about. If he believes this. I wonder how many meds he is on?
    Shame on you
    Mayo Clinic.��������������

  • By the way people, we would not have evolved such big brains were it not for all the energy in the carbohydrates we were eating. See, I can make stuff up too.

  • One of the best explanations of fat. I would had put a bit more time to explain Omegas fats but you might do that on a separate video

  • Coconut is whole food and plant based. It is also high in saturated fat. This is not addressed at all in this video on “saturated fat”. This is the second CNN video I watched on saturated fat and it is virtually useless.

  • I’m very troubled that our “science” on diet took such a hard turn in the wrong direction, Eat a Low Fat/High Carb Diet!!!

  • According to the Cochrane review of trials reducing saturated fats, cardiac events leading to mortality were reduced when saturated fats were reduced.

  • bad for my soul ):

    personally,
    I don’t mind other people but i’ve been trained to only like myself when I look thin…

    how do I break this insecurity?
    I don’t even go to the beach anymore.
    and just don’t like to show my body in general..

  • Thank you! I have just started Intermittent Fasting (16/8) and I’ve been attempting a loose keto based diet to go along with it in order to shed stubborn body fat. I’ve been looking online to try to figure out if I should be eating more healthy fats or more protein because some people who have had success will say “oh yeah eat fat! it’s won’t make you fat. I lost a ton of weight this way!” and then I’ll watch someone else who says “NO! Eat protein! Eating fat will cause your body to not take the stored body fat!” So I just got super confused! I’ve been avoiding eating fat for years so the idea of willingly eating fat is a hard pill to swallow, but the insulin principle makes sense.

  • People who wants to pack muscle eat food with saturated fats. The saturated fats is then turned into cholesterol and the cholesterol is turned into testosterone and the testosterone is a hormone that builds muscle, looses fat, and have more stamina

  • 2 pieces of bacon or a pat of butter isn’t going to kill you. Too much of ANYTHING is bad for you. Also, TOO LITTLE of something is also bad.

  • Check out nutritionfacts.org fat in the diet blocks the insulin receptors in your cell membranes so leaves you insulin resistance. Yes processed sugars in your diet are bad. But sugar from fruit and vegirs do not. Eggs have been shown to increase cholesterol levels unless you are already fat and have high cholesterol. Studies showing that eggs are ok were funded by the industry using subject with a BMI over 28 and with high cholesterol. Look it up! And the WHO classifies bacon as a type 1 carcinogen up there with cigarette smoke. Just interested in yoyr response to this. Not trying to be smart or rude but really just what to know your thoughts about my statements as there is a lot of conflicting info out there because I used to agree with what you are saying but after both my brother and sister having heart attacks in their 50s even though they are lean fit and eat “healthy” I started to question the whole keto diet approach

  • Christine can you mention about egg yolk in Fat vid? Will it cause harm to eat 6 or 7 whole eggs in a day? Sometimes eggs are my main source of protein in a day with the yolks being in a regular macros/protocol 1500 cal maintenance. People criticize about the cholesterol

  • 2 pieces of bacon or a pat of butter isn’t going to kill you. Too much of ANYTHING is bad for you. Also, TOO LITTLE of something is also bad.

  • Replace natural fats with these oils that are grown by the same corporations that are paying us to conduct our studies on how natural fats are bad.

  • Shame on you, Mayo Clinic, for your ignorance (or sellout to big food/pharmaceutical companies)! Every patient, friend, family I’ve seen has had dramatic physical and mental health, cognitive improvements by cutting out grains and sugar. When will you admit we’ve been wrong about diet since Ancel Keyes?

  • Oluve oil, avocaso oil and nuts mainly contain omega 6 fatty acids, and not enough omega 3 acids. This creates an imbalance, which is why these oils shouldn’t be used in excess. Some essential omega 3 chains are only found in fish and other sea organisms. Natural saurated fats are good for your health.

  • According to the Cochrane review of trials reducing saturated fats, cardiac events leading to mortality were reduced when saturated fats were reduced.

  • It’s important to emphasize the context of the situation that matters. Of course, saturated fat can be bad for you if you combine it with processed carbs and sugar ala the SAD diet. Saturated fat on a whole foods paleo-esque diet is probably safe. So, it’s never one macronutrient or food group that causes the issues it’s the metabolic context and the individual’s current condition. With that being said, I wouldn’t recommend people with diabetes or obesity to start eating a ton of saturated fat because they’re still insulin resistant.

  • For me it’s very harmful because it raises Lp-PLA2 levels and increases calcium scores. Coconut oil in particular is one of the worst saturated fats.

  • Everyone on here is only disagreeing because you want to eat what you like and not based on the truth. The numbers dont lie educate yourself and evolve, watch forks over knives and read everything you can find about a plant based diet and you will see why it reverses ALL diseases period. The healthiest people on earth do not eat animal products.

  • People who wants to pack muscle eat food with saturated fats. The saturated fats is then turned into cholesterol and the cholesterol is turned into testosterone and the testosterone is a hormone that builds muscle, looses fat, and have more stamina

  • Jesus is coming very soon for the Rapture of all of His true believers. Prepare yourself spiritually by repenting of all of your sins, turning away from every sin, pursuing holiness and surrendering yourself completely to God (God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit) and His will. God loves you as well as all people and doesn’t want anyone to perish, but He is holy and just and He must punish sin (wrongdoing/breaking God’s Law). This is where hell comes in and anyone who doesn’t repent sincerely of every sin, pursue holiness, and do God’s will will end up in there to be tormented for all eternity. If you are not raptured then you will face God’s wrath in the Great Tribulation or worse, in hell for eternity. Many people will die from the coming judgments of God (seven trumpets, seven bowls of God’s wrath, etc. from the Book of Revelation) after the Rapture and will go straight to hell to be punished forever. Many people will die in sudden destruction around the time of the Rapture and will end up in hell. This could be you. You may not get another chance from God to be saved if you are not raptured. Be wise and take heed. Lastly, please visit these links and share with others.

  • LOL. All these random people giving out health advice. Thanks, really sweet of you, but I’m going to trust the Mayo Clinic over random youtube comments.

  • “We did not become the dominant species on this planet because saturated fat was bad for us”
    how arrogant this wiew is. human domination, really?

  • There is no evidence that high levels of total cholesterol or of “bad” cholesterol cause heart disease, according to a new paper by 17 international physicians based on a review of patient data of almost 1.3 million people. The authors also say their review shows the use of statins – cholesterol lowering drugs – is “of doubtful benefit” when used as primary prevention of cardiovascular disease. The authors include Galway-based Prof Sherif Sultan, professor of the International Society for Vascular Surgery; Scottish-based Dr Malcolm Kendrick, author of The Great Cholesterol Con; and Dr David M Diamond, a US-based neuroscientist and cardiovascular disease researcher. Prof Sultan said millions of people all over the world, including many with no history of heart disease, are taking statins “despite unproven benefits and serious side effects”. XXX The failure of a study on the cholesterol-lowering drug evacetrapib was reported in April 2016 by its manufacturer, Eli Lilly, after spending $90 million of research and development costs. “The drug, evacetrapib, was pulled after it FAILED TO PREVENT one single case of heart attack, stroke, by-pass surgery, or angina—even though it successfully doubled levels of ‘good’ cholesterol and lowered ‘bad’ cholesterol. These results were presented to the American College of Cardiology’s in April 2016, recounting that researchers found that drug did not demonstrate any clinically meaningful cardiovascular risk benefit, despite a 130% increase in “good” cholesterol, or HDL cholesterol, and a 37% reduction in “bad” cholesterol, which is called LDL cholesterol. In the meantime, Pfizer pharmaceutical famously spent $800 million on a large trial combining its blockbuster statin Lipitor with torcetrapib, a CETP inhibitor; the combination of the two drugs was ultimately found to RAISE THE RISK OF DEATH and heart problems in patients. In 2012, Roche also scrapped development of its CETP inhibitor, dalcetrapib, due to a “lack of clinically meaningful efficacy.” “This is a a blow to the cholesterol theorists.” Evacetrapib is the third CETP failure. The first, torcetrapib, actually increased the rate of CARDIOVASCULAR DEATHS and disease despite lowering bad cholesterol levels. Conclusion: the use of Lipitor and torcetrapib, dalcetrapib, and evacetrapib increased the good cholesterol while decreasing the bad cholesterol, however; it surely resulted in an increase of cardiovascular deaths. xxxxxxx Researchers at the Tulane University School of Medicine used electron beam tomography (EBT) to measure the progression of plaque buildup in heart-attack patients taking statin drugs. EBT is a very accurate way to measure occlusion from calcium in the arteries. Contrary to expectations, the researchers discovered that the progression of coronary artery calcium (CAC) was significantly greater in patients receiving statins compared with event-free subjects despite similar levels of LDL-lowering. Said the researchers: “Continued expansion of CAC may indicate failure of some patients to benefit from statin therapy and an increased risk of having cardiovascular events (Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol, April 1, 2004).

  • satfat= very building type of fat
    if u r fatass or have shitty arteries stay away from it
    or pretty much all fat for that matter
    go fast u glutton

  • By the way people, we would not have evolved such big brains were it not for all the energy in the carbohydrates we were eating. See, I can make stuff up too.

  • I agree with Siim below, and believe that this is a really simplistic and dangerous question to ask on YouTube.

    If you are in a carb burning metabolism, like expected by the US Dietary Guidance, then the answer is probably “YES.” If you eat pizza and drink beer, and then decide to skip breakfast and have a Buletproof Coffee with 2T butter and 2T coconut oil thinking that is going to make you healthy, then you are in for a rude awakening.

  • now a days scientific reach is trash, saying one thing and after some timed changing or differ, utd unability to research rather then saying sm”new fatcs come in front of us”, its all non scence and ways yo get budget from ppl and government., image change ur statement in court like this every time, u will be in jail for 50 years.

  • They started out ok, reporting “some new study”, then failed to give the details or a reference, and then went on to try to undo its results. Fake news. These people don’t know what they’re talking about. High carb (Grain, Fruit, Cereals and other sugars) is the tried and tested road to CVD and diabetes.

  • Love this! Thanks Diet Doctor! I love the short clips of interviews with the experts on one topic at a time instead of long interviews.

  • This is pure genius. we need well-rounded, fact-based research from several credible sources for the best understanding. THANK YOU!

  • Kate shannon a lot of people trying to start eating healthy looks for advise from qualified people…it’s a very good question. You need a toothbrush

  • So basically what I learn.
    We have 3 types of fat: Saturated, Unsaturated(mono/poly) and trans-fat. The last one is dangerous cause the body can’t break it down.

  • Nice visual explanation of the different fats. Easy to understand. My one complaint is the statement that saturated fat increases LDL, which is bad. Recent studies show that saturated fat increases larger LDL, which is not associated with heart disease or mortality. It does not raise the dense VLDL, which is associated with heart disease.

  • Let’s see if I’ve understood correctly. Please give me a feedback….
    In other words: the amount of saturated fats I get in a day doesn’t mean that much alone. We need to look at what else I eat. If my net carbs are for instance under 50gr (sometimes even under 20 gr) and my proteins around 90 gr (I’m 50kg for 166cm) they are not harmful…. (I really hope it’s like this ;-))
    If someone has less saturated fats BUT lots of carbs, especially from trash food and fructose, it’s worse.

  • Very good explanation! However a few have a question of the saem type. Why does unsaturated fats decrease LDL levels adn increase HDL levels? Why does saturated fats increase both LDL and HDL? Why does transfer increase LDL levels and decreases HDL levels?

  • Nice informative video but I have a question. If saturated fat is dangerous anyhow, why does it increase both the good and bad Cholestrol? and if LDL is a bad cholestrol, why HDL, the good one is also increasing as a result of the consumption of the same saturated fats? Do you think LDL is the main culprit or the carbohydrates that cause inflammation in the body and LDL which gets oxidized while fighting the inflammation caused by carb intake?

  • Is there a recommendation or percentage of fat one should aim for? If someone’s gallbladder is removed does it effects the amount of fat they can digest?

  • Nice animation, although We have to get over the “good and bad cholesterol” and focus more on causes of inflation and small ldl particles

  • Very nice, thank you. Although that would make a video a bit longer, I suggest after each idea expressed you give several seconds for the viewer to digest te information, before moving to the next idea/passage

  • im a teacher and i was looking for a good summary of the topic of fat to my high school class. this is hands down the best and clearest video on the topic. I am inspired as a teacher. Well Done

  • So basically what I learn.
    We have 3 types of fat: Saturated, Unsaturated(mono/poly) and trans-fat. The last one is dangerous cause the body can’t break it down.

  • I just bought a beautiful slab of blue cheese and then I found out it contains a lot of trans-fats,
    I guess eating once won’t do any harm:D

  • Ok to eat, what nonsense. If you want to stay out of the industry, stay away from meat, dairy, oil, fish. Moderately dead is still dead. Go for the touchdown and eat a whole food plant based diet based on starchy staples, vegetables, some fruit. If you have any indication of possible heart disease of compromised blood flow then no nuts no seeds except flax or chia, no caffeine.

  • Love this! Thanks Diet Doctor! I love the short clips of interviews with the experts on one topic at a time instead of long interviews.

  • Cate’s comments… nature doesn’t make bad fats… factories do. Our bodies make saturated fat. It would be like asking… is blood bad for us?

  • 100%, my facial features and stomach are inflicted with more skin, particularly after any amount of saturated fat intake. I am disgusted to see so many “health professionals” claim saturated fat is good for you. It makes me look, feel, and think 200 times worse, ultimately causing excruciating agonizing psychiatric issues too ; I intend to never have a single percent of saturated fat again, otherwise won’t make it ; this has been a consistent threatening obstacle in my life thousands of times now, and won’t be victim of this terrible curse to food any longer

  • Avoid seed oils like canola, corn and soy oils.
    Eat olive oil, coconut oil, ghee or butter in moderation and don’t be afraid of their saturated fat. (Their role in heart disease has been disproven)
    And try to get some omega 3’s in your diet from sources like Wild salmon, mackerel and sardines, as well as flax seeds and walnuts.

  • Its what our ancestors ate..they ate the entire animal kingdom…what they HUNTED…this deck of card thing is ridiculous…you think they stopped at that portion��? They want people sick and weak for big pharma

  • “This new study suggest saturated fats are safe to eat. That is so confusing, so let’s instead just not eat them”

    Very informative, thank you

  • Coconut is whole food and plant based. It is also high in saturated fat. This is not addressed at all in this video on “saturated fat”. This is the second CNN video I watched on saturated fat and it is virtually useless.

  • “Fat causes heart disease. Sugar is good for you. Don’t eat butter-use margarine”….. said no one with any brains in 2019. Wake up Mayo clinic… 1976 called, they want their nutrition and food pyramid blueprints back.

  • So how do Eskimos live on whale blubber and have low incidence of heart disease? I think there’s something else in the common American diet that causes disease.

  • Study French who eats a lot of saturated fats and has the least incidence of obesity and heart desease. Their moderation is not less than 40% fats

  • On page 23 there is a fantastic nutrition trick that will tell your body that you’re not starving and keep your metabolic rate sky high. Now this is going to shock you yeah there’s a type of actual saturated fat yeah you know the kind the media tells you is all bad no this saturated fat is healthy and even supports fat burning metabolism.

  • This guy has no idea what he is talking about. If he believes this. I wonder how many meds he is on?
    Shame on you
    Mayo Clinic.��������������

  • Carbs and sugar had my BP at 145/90….my entire adult life! As soon as I quit the sugar and cut my carbs down to less than a 100 grams per day….within 2 weeks I had a BP of 110/70…sometimes 98/65…….LEGIT! Try it….and follow it to the T and see the results for yourself. This while living on bacon, eggs, and steak. We were all lied to….time for change.

  • Go get the book “EAT BACON DON’T JOG”… It’s an easy read and really simplifies it all. Saturated fat is the best thing you can eat. Avoid sugar, grains, and heavy aerobic exercise, which is useless. Exercise doesn’t make you lose weightyour diet does.

  • This is how it is to me they thought saturated fat was bad because they see LDL levels go up and it leads to bad things yet now using Lipid-electrophoresis they can separate the Low density lipo protein (LDL) into its separate constituents and see only certain ones oxidize and due to carbohydrates which are all converted into glucose, and in times of insulin resistance free flowing glucose binds to the lipo protein or specifically a protein (apo-b100) that attaches to the lipo protein and tells it where to go and now the molecule is to big or is unrecognized and cant be taken up by the liver so it travels back through our circulation and gets taken up by (macrophage) in a blood vessel so now oxidizes LDL is building up in the blood vessel lmao.

    Learned alot of this from one video and some from school
    Video
    Why eating saturated fat wont kill you, but vegetable oil might

    The amount of information i have learned in the past day from one video hahaha

    This is just the cholesterol aspect saturated is also better because its more stable do its structure like the truss of a bridge

    I will learn all this

  • Saturated fat is approx 24% of our body fatwhy would my body store 7 Kg of a “Toxin”. BTW Saturated fat is essential for our bodies energy regulation via mitochondrial reverse electron transportwhich is perturbed by PUFAsthe real culprit.

  • If you put a little planning into the diet it makes a big difference.  I believe you can make a balanced diet from meat, but you’ll need liver, spleen, and kidney, I think.  But, you don’t need much offal, just a bit.  It’s easy to get too many calories on a meat diet, and you should probably exercise like a hunter.  If you do that, it may be the healthiest diet, this isn’t a simple recipe, however.  I would still take a vitamin e supplement to match guidelines and you might need to do a few other things to meat dietary guideline.  I’ve been looking at dietary guidelines and you don’t really need bean as much as you need whole grains, which contain lots of protein, or you can also use bran or germ.  Research regarding the supposed unhealthiness of meat usually includes processed meat, in fact, I haven’t seen anything recently that does not.  Also, the avoidance of dairy for people who can handle the lactose seem contradicted by how easy it is to get dietary calcium with small amounts.  He wants people to eat six cups of leafy greens or something, that’s basically what it comes down to.  As it is, it’s pretty hard to avoid eating a cup of greens and having a balanced diet, and a cup is a huge bowl full when fluffed.  Besides, if you eat no meat, then it’s very hard to get your B12, so you can eat like 1/2 oz of liver or 3oz of clams or something similar to get at that.  Most people can do that.  And you can eat clams because they’re low in mercury, so you would only have to eat two bites of liver a couple days a week.  I mean, in order to get a natural diet going on, cause I know what you’re thinking, that maybe I’m talking vegetarians into eating meat, nope.  It just takes a lot more meat to get those vitamins than a few bits of liver, which is also very inexpensive.  You can likely special order them natural grass fed or whatever from you butcher and they’ll still be inexpensive.  You can get them from canned clam chowder too, lol.  I learned this by messing around with diet software.  You can get most stuff easily in 1500 calories and then hit the goal for K with bananas and potatoes that give lots of calories.  You need cereal grains to hit some and cheese is easy too, so that’s a lot of calories there too, but the baffling ones are D, E, K, and B12.  You can only supplement a little K, so you fill your calorie needs with bananas and potatoes to patch that up as possible.  D you get from the sun, but since there’s a contradiction there, use D3 from a bottle.  E from a bottle.  And then some meat for the B12 or get that from a bottle.  The simple one I came up with first was 1C oat groats, 1C spinach, 1large bell pepper,.3lb cheese, 3oz beef liver (skip occasionally), 1 egg, and then bananas for calories.  I just ate the oats like nuts because that’s 4Cs of oatmeal and I was not interested.  I couldn’t handle the liver. 

  • For me this video really explained fats well and I would use this to help teaching foods students about fats because visuals are sometimes easier than lecture.

  • Thank you! I have just started Intermittent Fasting (16/8) and I’ve been attempting a loose keto based diet to go along with it in order to shed stubborn body fat. I’ve been looking online to try to figure out if I should be eating more healthy fats or more protein because some people who have had success will say “oh yeah eat fat! it’s won’t make you fat. I lost a ton of weight this way!” and then I’ll watch someone else who says “NO! Eat protein! Eating fat will cause your body to not take the stored body fat!” So I just got super confused! I’ve been avoiding eating fat for years so the idea of willingly eating fat is a hard pill to swallow, but the insulin principle makes sense.

  • Thanks so much for this video! I was trying to convince people that dietary fat is not bad.. but no one is believing me.. the problem is that even doctors here are still telling people to use low fat products:)

  • Is there a recommendation or percentage of fat one should aim for? If someone’s gallbladder is removed does it effects the amount of fat they can digest?

  • Check out nutritionfacts.org fat in the diet blocks the insulin receptors in your cell membranes so leaves you insulin resistance. Yes processed sugars in your diet are bad. But sugar from fruit and vegirs do not. Eggs have been shown to increase cholesterol levels unless you are already fat and have high cholesterol. Studies showing that eggs are ok were funded by the industry using subject with a BMI over 28 and with high cholesterol. Look it up! And the WHO classifies bacon as a type 1 carcinogen up there with cigarette smoke. Just interested in yoyr response to this. Not trying to be smart or rude but really just what to know your thoughts about my statements as there is a lot of conflicting info out there because I used to agree with what you are saying but after both my brother and sister having heart attacks in their 50s even though they are lean fit and eat “healthy” I started to question the whole keto diet approach

  • Christine can you mention about egg yolk in Fat vid? Will it cause harm to eat 6 or 7 whole eggs in a day? Sometimes eggs are my main source of protein in a day with the yolks being in a regular macros/protocol 1500 cal maintenance. People criticize about the cholesterol

  • bad for my soul ):

    personally,
    I don’t mind other people but i’ve been trained to only like myself when I look thin…

    how do I break this insecurity?
    I don’t even go to the beach anymore.
    and just don’t like to show my body in general..

  • Thank you for this; people need to learn that fat is good for you. I used to think low-fat was the way to do it, and I ended up with severe brain fog and depression from lack of fat. BTW do you have an idea of how people with chronic pain can work through DOMS? I did some strength training yesterday and my pain is through the roof today.
