Melting points of different fats
Hi guys, i have done some searching on this site and cant seem to find an exact answer to my question. In my biochemistry lecture yesterday we were talking about fats. Apparently the reason saturated fat is bad for us is because it has high melting point (69 degrees c) and this is why it sticks to arteries because our body is only about 37 degrees. Can anyone explain this to me. I am in the 'Saturated fat is prob not as bad as they say' camp but this lecture must made me question this.
