Background The associations between dietary saturated fats and the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) remain controversial, but few studies have compared saturated with unsaturated fats and sources of carbohydrates in relation to CHD risk.

Background Several epidemiological studies have investigated the association between dietary fat intake and cardiovascular disease. However, dietary recommendations based on systematic review and meta-analysis might be more credible.

The effect of dietary fats on cardiometabolic diseases, including cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes mellitus, has generated tremendous interest. Many earlier investigations focused on total fat and conventional fat classes (such as saturated and unsaturated fats) and their influence on a limited number of risk factors. However, dietary fats comprise heterogeneous molecules with diverse structures, and growing research in the past two decades supports correspondingly complex health effe...

Abstract High consumption of trans and saturated fats has been related to the development of cardiovascular diseases, justifying the application of organogels as possible substitutes for industrial fats. The aim of this study was to evaluate the physicochemical and rheological characteristics of soybean organogels that were prepared with 6% (w:w) of structuring components by a simplex centroid design, individually added, in binary and ternary associations with candelilla wax (CW), sorbitan monos...

Abstract Plant fats are low in saturated fats but high in unsaturated fats compared to animal fats, and are supposedly less obesogenic. This study compared the obesogenic effects of plant and animal derived fatty diets in Wistar rats. Rats of each gender were divided into three dietary (standard chow (SC), high fat diet rich in animal fat (HFDaf) and a high fat diet rich in plant fat (HFDpf)) groups of ten each and fed for 17 weeks. Anthropometric, Adiposity and nutritive variables were assessed...

OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between intakes of n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and type 2 diabetes risk in three prospective cohort studies of U.S. men and women. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We followed 83,648 women from the Nurses’ Health Study (NHS; 1980–2012), 88,610 women from NHSII (1991–2013, and 41,771 men from the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study (1986–2012). Dietary data was collected every 2–4 years by using validated food-frequency questionnaires. Self-reporte...
