Evidence found link between fatty acids and heart disease

A recent research has led to serious questions about the existing guidelines that initiate to restrict the consumption of saturated fats and on the other hand encourage consumption of polyunsaturated fats that will be helpful in preventing heart disease. The research is published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine. Further during the study it was found that there can be linkage between the fatty acids and prevalent heart disease. The lead author Dr Rajiv Chowdhury from the University of Cambridge, explains, “These are interesting results that potentially stimulate new lines of scientific inquiry and encourage careful reappraisal of our current nutritional guidelines. Cardiovascular disease, in which the principal manifestation is coronary heart disease, remains the single leading cause of death and disability worldwide.”
