Unsaturated fats are the siren call of lower cholesterol to fight coronary heart disease (CHD). IMHO, it was the whole point of developing products, like canola, of which Soylent has plenty. So said the American College of Cardiology (ACC), and many others. For decades.
Now the president of the ACC is telling us that LDL may or may not correlate to cardiovascular outcomes. (read the link)
In the same link, I see this from the BMJ (British Medical Journal?);
Consumption of saturated fats is not associated with all-cause mortality, cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease (CHD), ischemic stroke, or diabetes2.’
There is probably lots of resistance to this idea, but the trend here is against unsaturated fats. Soylent has enough battles to fight, without taking on more. But my concern is that inclusion of unsaturated fats within Soylent will be a new battle very shortly. Please don’t respond with research stating otherwise, this post alone is enough evidence to suspect researchers of opportunistic collusion with a now failed premise. Instead, I am reaching out for evidence/research that unsaturated fats are the new enemy, in the hope of putting Soylent at the head of the class,
