Sat fat bad - says book I'm reading.
I have started reading "The Ultimate Omega 3 diet" by Evelyn Tribole M.S., RD
And on page 230 I read "The saturated fats are the infamous artery clogging fats that raise blood cholesterol..... Our bodies have no need for saturated fat. Saturated fats interfere with the beneficial effects of omega 3's in the body"
I am now way past page 20, and so much of the information I find interesting, but this paragraph keeps making me question her other statements!
From the resume on the back cover the gist of the book is to massively reduce omega 6 intake and have sufficient omega 3 to balance out the ratios, but I fear that the anti sat fat theme will occur over and over.
Is there in fact any solid evidence that sat fats reduce the effectiveness of omega 3 fats?
