Abstract

Excessive consumption of saturated fats has been considered as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease for more than half a century. However, recently published data and many meta-analyses have raised questions about the role of saturated fats as a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. This article aims to critically analyze the available data and draw a reasonable conclusion based on scientific evidence.
