A new global study has correlated high consumption of dietary fats with a reduced risk of death and stroke.

In direct opposition to those who insist we should avoid saturated fats like the plague, scientists confirmed that cutting sat fats so they made up less than 3% of our total calories, actually increased death rates by 13%.

So what’s the story here? Who’s right? And should we steadfastly avoid fat or use it as a valuable energy source?
