BACKGROUND A reduction in dietary saturated fat has generally been thought to improve cardiovascular health. OBJECTIVE The objective of this meta-analysis was to summarize the evidence related to the association of dietary saturated fat with risk of coronary heart disease (CHD), stroke, and cardiovascular disease (CVD; CHD inclusive of stroke) in prospective epidemiologic studies. DESIGN Twenty-one studies identified by searching MEDLINE and EMBASE databases and secondary referencing… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Dietary saturated fat intake and atherosclerotic vascular disease mortality in elderly women: a prospective cohort study.
TLDR
Although there was a strong positive association between SFA intake and LDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol was not associated with ASVD mortality in this cohort, and these data support dietary advice to reduce S FA intake.
Should We Stop Blaming Saturated Fats for Causing Coronary Heart Disease? A Systematic Review of Prospective Cohort Studies
TLDR
It is suggested that SFs intake was not associated with higher incidence or mortality of CHD.
Saturated fatty acids and coronary heart disease risk: the debate goes on
TLDR
The link between SFA intake, plasma cholesterol, and CHD risk is based on a broad range of evidence including mechanistic studies, RCTs of surrogate end points and clinical outcomes, as well as multinational population comparisons.
Dietary fat intakes and cardiovascular disease risk in adults with type 2 diabetes: a systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
Until more data are available to better comment on dietary fat intakes in cardiovascular disease risk of those with type 2 diabetes, it appears appropriate that saturated fats be replaced in the diet with other macronutrients, such as polyunsaturated fats.
Longitudinal association of dietary fat intake with cardiovascular events in a prospective cohort study in Eastern Mediterranean region
TLDR
Higher consumption of HVO was associated with increased risk of myocardial infarction and no association was found for other dietary fat sources with ischaemic heart disease, stroke, all-cause and CVD mortality after adjustment for all potential confounders.
Dietary intake of saturated fat is not associated with risk of coronary events or mortality in patients with established coronary artery disease.
TLDR
There was no association between dietary intake of SFAs and incident coronary events or mortality in patients with established CAD.
Dietary fat and cardiovascular disease
TLDR
A recent meta analysis showed that current evidence does not clearly support cardiovascular guidelines that encourage high consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and low consumption of total SF, and found weak positive associations between circulating palmitic and stearic acids and CVD, whereas circulating margaric acid significantly reduced the risk of CVD.
Intake of saturated and trans unsaturated fatty acids and risk of all cause mortality, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes: systematic review and meta-analysis of observational studies
TLDR
Saturated fats are not associated with all cause mortality, CVD, CHD, ischemic stroke, or type 2 diabetes, but the evidence is heterogeneous with methodological limitations, and Dietary guidelines must carefully consider the health effects of recommendations for alternative macronutrients to replace trans fats and saturated fats.

Inverse association of dietary fat with development of ischemic stroke in men.
TLDR
Intakes of fat, saturated fat, and monounsaturated fat were associated with reduced risk of ischemic stroke in men in the Framingham Heart Study.
Major types of dietary fat and risk of coronary heart disease: a pooled analysis of 11 cohort studies.
TLDR
The associations suggest that replacing SFAs with PUFAs rather than MUFAs or carbohydrates prevents CHD over a wide range of intakes.
Dietary fat intake and risk of coronary heart disease in women: 20 years of follow-up of the nurses' health study.
TLDR
Findings continue to support an inverse relation between polyunsaturated fat intake and CHD risk, particularly among younger or overweight women, and trans-fat intake was associated with increased risk of CHD, particularly for younger women.
Dietary fat intake and risk of coronary heart disease: the Strong Heart Study.
TLDR
Total fat, saturated fatty acid, and monounsaturated fatty acid intake were strong predictors of CHD mortality in American Indians aged 47-59 y, independent of other established CHD risk factors.
Dietary lipid predictors of coronary heart disease in men. The Framingham Study.
TLDR
Dietary intervention for the prevention of CHD in younger men is supported by these findings, suggesting that their effects are at least partially independent of other established risk factors.
Dietary fat and risk of coronary heart disease: possible effect modification by gender and age.
TLDR
The present study suggests that coronary heart disease risk relates to both the quantity and the quality of dietary fats.

TLDR
The results do not suggest any benefit from a limited total or saturated fat intake, nor from relatively high intake of unsaturated fat, and no trend towards higher cardiovascular event risk for women or men with higher total oraturated fat intakes, was observed.
Dietary saturated fats and their food sources in relation to the risk of coronary heart disease in women.
TLDR
A distinction between stearic acid and other saturated fats does not appear to be important in dietary advice to reduce CHD risk, in part because of the high correlation betweenStearic Acid and otheraturated fatty acids in typical diets.
Dietary fat and risk of coronary heart disease in men: cohort follow up study in the United States
TLDR
The data do not support the strong association between intake of saturated fat and risk of coronary heart disease suggested by international comparisons, but they are compatible with the hypotheses that saturatedfat and cholesterol intakes affect the risk of heart disease as predicted by their effects on blood cholesterol concentration.
