Unknown: It was widely believed that the low carb, high fat, atkins diet would cause a marked increase in LDL cholesterol and heart disease but it didn't. If you're normal weight and exercising regularly, it may not matter what you're eating but this has not been conclusively proven. As a cardiologist, I do not recommend 50% of calories from sat.
