In The News
A new epidemiological study from Tufts University has confirmed what other studies have been finding since the 1950s. Unfortunately, these early studies didn’t receive media attention once the American Medical Association began supporting the results of the Seven Countries Study released in the early 1950s.
Today researchers have discovered statistical abnormalities in the Seven Countries Study which make the results inaccurate. But, while past and current studies continue to demonstrate information supporting a diet rich in saturated fats, this information is not covered as frequently in the mainstream media, nor are they used in recommendations you get from your medical doctor.
It’s important you do your own research into how and why healthy saturated fats are important to your brain and overall health before you embrace a lifestyle of eating that may leave you more satisfied, leaner and healthier.
Daily Health Tip
Your body requires healthy saturated fats from grass fed, organic sources for both strong brain health and to build strong cell membranes.
Your first change must be to do your research in order that you are both comfortable and confident in the decisions you make about your health and nutrition.
Your next change is to understand what constitutes a healthy fat. Transfatty acids, found in baked goods and processed foods, are the fats responsible for plaque formation and rising cholesterol levels.
Healthy fats are found in fruits, like avocado, pasture-fed meats, pastured dairy products and virgin coconut oils.
