Saturated fats are not bad for your health or heart health, according to an heart expert
Heart Health: Food low in saturated fats do not reduce cholesterol, prevent heart disease or help people to live longer, heart scientific claim.
NHS guidelines recommend that reducing foods high in fat such as butter, cream and chocolate put public in danger and must be revised urgently, warned a heart scientist.
Low in saturated fat foods do not lower cholesterol or prevent heart disease and help people live longer, insists Dr. James Dinicolantonio.
He is so concerned about misinterpretation of "bad data", which he used for a new campaign to admit to public health, " we were mislabeled."
Experts and nutritionists British Health supported his comments say that for too long "inconvenient facts" were suffocated dietry of dogma.
Saturated fat is traditionally found in butter, cheese, fatty meats, cookies, pies and sausages.
But Dr. Dinicolantonio claimed that the sugar and carbohydrates are in fact responsible for the behavior of high cholesterol and obesity epidemic and suggested that the guidelines should be changed urgently.
A public health campaign is a strong desire on the dangers of a diet rich in carbohydrates and sugar to educate people about their risk.
There is no conclusive evidence that a low-fat diet has a positive effect on health. Indeed, the literature shows a general lack of any effect, good or bad, a reduction in fat intake.
A change in the recommendations is very necessary that public health could be at risk.
We need a public health campaign as hard as we in the 70s and 80s had demonize saturated fats that we were wrong.
Dinicolantonio notes that the "defamation" of saturated fats in the 1950s , as researchers have suggested a link between high consumption of saturated fats in the diet and heart disease deaths.
But study author drew his conclusions on data from six countries, the choice of the 16 other data that do not fit his hypothesis and ignore the subsequent analysis of data from 22 countries.
Yet the study since the 1970s, and most health organizations have advised people to reduce fat.
"It seems we drove through the road, diet is inadequate in the coming decades", said Dr. Dinicolantonio of Ithica College, New York , wrote in the journal BMJ Open Heart.
Experts also believe that the regime could lead to less obesity and diabetes - when the opposite is the case, he said.
In 2009 , the Food Standards Agency, a campaign that a TV commercial that showed a dull kitchen sink is clogged with grease are started, and suggested that it had a similar effect on the arteries.
The FSA shows that excess fat in the diet increases blood cholesterol levels, which is a risk factor for coronary heart disease , heart attack, angina and stroke.
NHS guidelines suggest that the average man should consume more than 30 grams of saturated fat per day and women no more than 20 g.
But Dr. Dinicolantonio believes that the move away from fat, carbohydrates damaged public health. Increasing - diet rich in carbohydrates is on the rise in diabetes and obesity epidemic in the United States suggests responsible.
The best diet for increasing and maintaining the health of the heart is low in refined carbohydrates, sugar and processed foods is recommended.
Brian Ratcliffe, a professor of nutrition at the Robert Gordon University Aberdeen, welcomed his comments.
"Over the past three decades, more evidence has strongly support the dietary recommendations provided to reduce the intake of fat and saturated fats", he said.
"Dinicolantonio not even touch the evidence that a diet low in fat (the truth under the current guidelines) were treated with a bad mood and even depression.
Victoria Taylor, senior dietitian of heart health at the British Heart Foundation advised the public to a holistic approach in order to take their diet.
"Fat is only part of our diet. Care of our hearts for the long term, we need to look to our diet as a whole. Eating a Mediterranean diet rich in fruits, vegetables, legumes and fish helps reduce cholesterol and the risk of coronary heart disease reduce."
Alison Tedstone, director of the Food and Health System in England, said: "The totality of evidence suggests that high intake of saturated fat is associated with cholesterol levels in the blood, it could lead to increased total and low density lipoprotein (LDL) lead to an increased risk of heart disease.
"It is therefore reasonable to conclude that a reduction in the intake of saturated fat lowers total and LDL cholesterol in the blood may reduce the risk of heart disease."
