Not All Fats Dangerous, It's proof

Eating fat is not always bad for health, as long as we choose the right type.

There are different types of fat which actually positive benefit. Recent studies have shown that the standard advice to avoid the fat may not be appropriate.

In a recent study that looked at diet and followed 126,000 people for 23 years, the researchers recorded the type of fat consumed by a person at the beginning of the study and every two years, until the end of the study period.

Consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids and monounsaturated fats associated with a decreased risk of death. Instead, the fat that should be avoided are saturated fats and trans fats.

When compared with the consumption of carbohydrates, eat more saturated fat is associated with increased mortality.

Examples of foods that contain unsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats doubles eg olive oil, soybean oil, sunflower seed oil, or deep sea fish such as salmon, mackerel or herring. Other sources include legumes, tofu, and soy.

The benefits of unsaturated fats include lowering levels of bad cholesterol that can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke. This type of fat also contains nutrients that maintain cell function. Oils which contain unsaturated fats also contain vitamin E and antioxidants.

Meanwhile, the type of fat that needs to be limited, among others, trans fats that we can get from various kinds of processed foods, fried foods, red meat, butter, milk, and so on.

However, a recent study says that consumption of butter, which actually contains high saturated fat was not too dangerous, even for people who suffer from type 2 diabetes.
