The "french paradox" demonstrates this too. Why should a country that averages 3 times the saturated fat intake recommended by the AHA have such a low instance of heart disease? Well, we could espouse any number of silly and desperate rationalizations.....or it could be that saturated fat doesn't cause heart disease.
I also find it silly that no matter the evidence supporting the healthfulness of saturated fat, the simple fact that it raises "cholesterol" (as if cholesterol level was in itself a bad thing) will keep it demonized for at least another decade or more.
