“Low fat, no fat”
This has been the mantra of the medical system for the last 30-40 years.
But a new mega study from Canada completely busts this myth.
In fact, one of the most “dangerous” fats out there has now been proven to prevent stroke and help you live longer.
Researchers took data from the Prospective Urban Rural Epidemiology (PURE) study.
It was a huge study that recorded diets and health events of 135,000 people from 18 countries for seven-and-a-half years.
Interestingly, those who ate the most fat were less likely to suffer or die from cardiovascular disease than those who ate the least fat. And those who ate the least amount of fat tended to die in larger numbers than their fat-eating peers.
This was true for all the different types of fats: saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated.
In fact, those who ate the most saturated fat had a 21% lower stroke risk than those who avoided it.
Saturated fat is the stuff you find in coconut oil, red meat, milk, cheese, eggs, and other animal sources. It’s been preached as the leading cause of cardiovascular diseases.
Why is this the case?
The researchers found that people who tried to cut down on their fat intake replaced those fats with carbohydrates. People who ate a lot of carbs were 28% more likely to die early than people who ate small amounts of them.
Those who ate the most protein had a 23% lower risk of dying early than those who ate more carbs.
So, increase your protein intake, decrease your carbohydrate intake, and leave your fats alone.
The main problem with carbs is probably that they are overly processed in the 21st century with lots of sugar and white flower. Instead, opt for whole-wheat and brown rice when eating carbs.
The most important part of this research is that it confirms what I’ve been preaching for years: fat (cholesterol) does not cause plaque buildup in your arteries!
In fact, there is one ingredient responsible for ALL plaque buildup – therefore all strokes and heart attack. And you didn’t even know you were consuming this ingredient. Learn all the details here…
