So what about the idea that saturated fat causes heart disease?  It’s just not true.
 
In fact, a growing body of research shows that saturated fats have been wrongly accused of causing cardiovascular disease.??A review in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition evaluated data from 21 different studies. These studies involved more than 350,000 people. And the results? The researchers found "no significant evidence" that eating more saturated fat increased the risk of heart disease or stroke.??Another study published in the same journal found that saturated fat actually prevents the progression of coronary artery disease in women with metabolic syndrome. The researchers coined this phenomenon “The American Paradox”.
