Nutrition professionals are often asked about headline-making studies regarding dietary saturated fat and cardiovascular disease. Often these headlines conflict with one another or with advice people hear from health professionals.
This session will guide professionals in how to evaluate studies examining the relationship between saturated fatty acids and CVD, summarize and translate the conclusions from the most valid studies to educate individuals on general cardioprotective eating habits, and apply the conclusions from valid studies to answer questions like "What about coconut oil?" and "Is butter back?"
