- Saturated Fat and Heart Disease Risk – Dariush Mozaffarian
Dariush Mozaffarian codirects Harvard’s cardiovascular epidemiology program. Mozaffairan says that saturated fat is not much of a risk factor in heart disease, and neither is naturally prepared red meat. But trans fats are a risk, and so are refined carbs.
Dr. Mozaffarian goes on to say that another risk factor for heart disease . . . and for diabetes . . . is processed meat — ie, meat with lots of salt and preservatives in it. Think about a no-fat French baguette sandwich with a low-fat dairy spread loaded with low-fat, processed lunch meats, for instance, and you may have there the makings of a heart attack on a plate. Here’s more from his talk at the International Symposium on Saturated Fat.
