The Saturated Fat In Butter

Published on 9/8/2017

Recent studies have indicated that vigorous aerobic exercise can improve memory and reasoning in people with mild cognitive impairment, which is often a precursor to dementia. A team of Australian researchers has been studying whether resistance training has a similar effect.

The team recruited 68 women and 32 men ages 55 through 86, all of whom had mild cognitive impairment, and randomly assigned them to two groups. One group did weight training twice a week for six months, ...lifting 80% of the maximum amount they could. The other did stretching exercises.

All participants were given cognitive tests at the beginning and end of the study and 12 months after they finished the study. The group that did the weight training scored significantly higher at the end of the study than at the beginning and retained that gain at 12 months. The gain in test scores was also greatest for those who had the greatest gains in strength. The scores of the group who performed stretching exercises declined somewhat.

The results were published online Oct. 24, 2016, by the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.


Don't buy into reports that "butter is back." The saturated fat in butter appears to increase the risk of coronary artery disease, and so do the fats found in other dairy foods, meat, lard, and palm oil, suggests a study published Nov. 23, 2016, in The BMJ. Harvard researchers analyzed more than two decades' worth of dietary and health information from more than 115,000 people. Researchers noted that higher intakes of the most common saturated fats—lauric acid, myristic acid,... palmitic acid, and stearic acid—were associated with a boost in the risk of coronary artery disease of up to 18%. But replacing just 1% of those fats with the same amount of calories from polyunsaturated fats, whole grains, or plant proteins was associated with a 6% to 8% lower risk. The study doesn't prove that individual saturated fats increase the risk of developing coronary artery disease. For example, stress may have played a part in the risk, but it wasn't measured.

However, the findings echo what current USDA Dietary Guidelines recommend: limit saturated fat intake to less than 10% of total calories, and eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, legumes, fish, low-fat dairy, and vegetable oils rich in polyunsaturated fats (sunflower or corn oil) and monounsaturated fats (olive or canola oils).
