Top 5 Heart Healthy Fats
For a healthy heart we need saturated fats! … And cholesterol! This comes as a surpise? No wonder! The media has fed you wrong information on heart healthy fats for decades.
For many years, it has been a conventional wisdom that saturated fats and cholesterol are a threat to our cardiovascular health by clogging arteries that would cause atherosclerosis and heart attacks. Therefore, these fats should be held to a minimum if not completely avoided. Instead, high omega-6 vegetable oils and margarines such as canola, corn, olive, peanut, safflower, sesame, soybean, and sunflower are recommended to ensure a healthy heart. This no longer is supported in the scientific literature.
