Saturated Fat vs Trans Fat – June 2015

There has been a lot of reports, wrongly in my opinion, about how bad fat is for us and we should be eating a fat free diet.  I have never believed that but many people do.  In this study, which analysis the findings from a multitude of other studies, Dr. Richard de Souza and his collaborators evaluate the real effects of fat.  Is saturated fat bad for you? Are trans-fats bad for you?  What is a saturated fat? What is a trans-fat?  Should I be eating fat and what kind of fat?  Dr. de Souza answers all of these questions and more from his research.  Naturally, one should ask, who is Dr. Richard de Souza and should I be listening to him or not?

Dr. Richard de Souza is a registered dietitian and nutrition epidemiologist. His current research interests lie in advancing methodology for systematic reviews and meta-analysis and clinical trials in the field of nutrition, with an interest in the contribution of dietary patterns and macronutrients (specifically fructose, saturated and trans fats) to cardiovascular disease risk throughout the lifespan. He is a co-investigator on the INMD-funded Birth Cohort Alliance, which seeks to explore associations among maternal nutrition, infant feeding patterns, and epigenetic/epigenomic determinants of maternal and child health; and the Alliance for Health Hearts and Minds cohort examining neighborhood-level factors that contribute to cardiovascular risk. He is also interested in the reproducibility and validity of current methods of assessing nutrient intakes.
