Eat Fat and Lower Overall Mortality Risk


Healthy Fats Total Health Performance Camden Campbelltown

Fats bad reputation is slowly getting replaced by some of the benefits associated with eating healthy fats. This is good news and a new study demonstrated that fat intake was associated with a lower mortality.

Michael Jurgelewicz, DC, DACBN, DCBCN, CNS wrote a great article on this which you can read here.

"As a result, higher carbohydrate intake was associated with an increased risk of total mortality but not with the risk of cardiovascular disease or cardiovascular disease mortality. In addition, the total fat intake as well as each type of fat was associated with a lower risk of total mortality. Furthermore, higher saturated fat intake was associated with a reduced risk of stroke. This large study demonstrates that fats are not significantly associated with an increased risk of a heart attack or cardiovascular disease mortality."

"Fats make up the structure of our cell membranes, and fatty acid deficiencies contribute not only to cardiovascular disease but many other problems such as eczema, poor concentration, immune dysfunction, and chronic inflammatory disorders."

"People who eat a lot of saturated fat generally eat less carbohydrates and unsaturated fat, and those who eat less saturated fat generally eat more carbohydrates or unsaturated fats. You cannot eat a lot of all the macronutrients and be healthy. The ideal amount of each macronutrient will be specific to each individual, their current state of health, existing conditions, goals, metabolic demands, and activity level."
