The fact that we have been eating large amounts of saturated fat for the past few million years, that lipids in breast milk is composed of 32-55% saturated fat, as well as some cholesterol, and that the liver actually produces cholesterol is pretty convincing evidence to me.Mkoll wrote:The fact is that there is a scientific controversy regarding the possibility of deleterious health effects of saturated fat and cholesterol consumption.
