Fat intake and heart risk

A 2014 meta–analysis of prospective observational studies found no association between intake of saturated fat and risk for coronary heart disease (CHD). The meta–analysis, published in Ann Intern Med. 2014 Mar 18;160(6):398–406, also found no relationship between monounsaturated fat intake and CHD, but suggested a reduction in CHD with higher intake of omega–3 polyunsaturated fats; a benefit with omega–6 polyunsaturated fats remains uncertain.
