In brief: May help Arteries

Not sure about GI issues but saturated fats are not unhealthy, simple carbs ; sugar drive artery disease ; most heart problems.
The healthiest fats, from research: lard, coconut, palm ; better olive oils. Study: big fat lies, mcgovern's report, mary enig, stossel debunking food myths, dietdoctor.Com, gary taubes, peter attia, nusi.Org, robert lustig, the men who made us fat, nora gedgaudas, etc.
