The tide is turning

Ronald M Krauss, former Senior Advisor to the National Cholesterol Education Program, actively involved with the American Heart Association, former Chairman of the Nutrition Committee, has in collaboration with Siri-Tarino Patty, Sun Qi and B. H. Frank conducted meta-analysis of prospective cohort studies evaluating the association of saturated fat with cardiovascular disease. Although I have yet to read the entire article the abstract is promising.
Twenty-one studies with 5–23 years of follow-up of 347,747 subjects gave this uplifting conclusion:
“A meta-analysis of prospective epidemiologic studies showed that there is no significant evidence for concluding that dietary saturated fat is associated with an increased risk of CHD or CVD. More data are needed to elucidate whether CVD risks are likely to be influenced by the specific nutrients used to replace saturated fat.”
I enthusiastically await the response of the nutrition community.

  1. The New England Journal of medicine kom i 2008 ut med en artikkel med samme konklusjon… så noen må snart kreve et skikkelig svar fra Grete Roede 😉
