Do you think Cordain is aware of the fact that scientists have shown that the fatty acids found within atheromas are predominantly of the 'heart-healthy' unsaturated kind? Over 50 % of the fatty acids found in advanced atheromas are polyunsaturated, 30 % are monounsaturated and only 20 % are saturated. Cordain's recommendation must be on political correctness, you would think. Carpenter KL, et al. Lipids and oxidised lipids in human atheroma and normal aorta. Biochemica et Biophysica Acta , Apr 7, 1993 ; 1167 (2): 121-130.

Perhaps Cordain himself is unfamiliar with the 18 clinical dietary intervention trials to date examining the saturated fat /CAD issue. None of these 18 show any reudtcion at all in CAD mortality, CAD incidence or total mortality from saturated fat restriction or dietary cholesterol lowering. The National Diet Heart Study 1968 , The Minnesota Coronary Survey 1989 are two of the 18 that are also double blinded. The most recent of all of these is The Women's Health Initative 2006, another which shows no support at all to the farcical idea that "saturated fat causes CAD" pushed by the fraud of Ancel Keys. When put to the test of a randomized double blinded clinical trial, the idea that saturated fat causes CAD does not hold up at all.

Chris from "fitness fail" What about groups like the Maasai, Dinkas, Samburu, French , and Inuits who eat a diet very rich in saturate dfat and have very low rates of CAD? How does Cordain explain away them? Cordain knows little of the Mammoths, Hippos and Rhinos all hunted enthusiastically during the Paleolithic. They were evry rich in saturated fat. In fact an adult hippo carries around 90 kg of adipose tissue . As for the claim that fat from wild game is proportionately lower in saturated fat than domesticated animals, a quick check on the USDA database shows otherwise. The fat from wild bison , for example, has a similar percentage osf saturated fatty acid content to beef fat. Animals like anteloupe, buffalo, caribou, wild boar , elk, and so on contain 30 -38 % saturated fat. The fat from domesticated pork, by comparison, contains 37 % saturated fat. Cordain is 100 % wrong. Are you sure you did your research?

I apologize for all of my trolling, Richard. I promise not to do it anymore. I agree on the saturated fat/CAD thing. I was only repeating word for word what persons have countered me with. Very good article. Dirk

Lyle McDonald could easily tear you or Gary Taubes apart in your farcical insulin makes you fat arguments. CALORIES make you fat.

And a high saturated fat diet will clog your arteries........ You think 98% of the world's cardiologista are wrong? Your saturated fat rich diet is the reason you are fat !
