When evaluating clinical studies to establish a `single truth' about saturated, monounsaturated, or polyunsaturated fat on the one hand, or dietary cholesterol on the other, how does one account for the relative importance of individual fatty acids or dietary cholesterol (Hayes, 1995; Khosla & Sundram, 1996). The statement that: `saturated fatty acids (SFA) raise cholesterol' ignores the fact that 12:0+14:0-rich fats are more potent than a 16:0-rich or 18:0-rich fat in this regard. Further, the… CONTINUE READING
