Long-term dietary study suggests lower risk for unsaturated fats

(CBC) Replacing trans fat and saturated fats from foods such as red meat and butter with some plant-based foods offers health benefits, say researchers who tracked diet patterns and deaths among more than 100,000 health professionals for up to three decades…
Different types of fat had different associations with risk of death overall. For example, those who replaced saturated fats with unsaturated fats, especially polyunsaturated fats, had a significantly lower risk of death overall during the study period.
Their risk of death from cardiovascular disease, cancer, neurodegenerative disease and respiratory disease was lower than for those who continued to consume high amounts of saturated fats.
