first_img Insights on cholesterol drive discussion at Harvard Chan School Related People who replace saturated fat (mainly found in meats and dairy foods) in their diets with refined carbohydrates do not lower their risk of heart disease, according to a new study led by researchers at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. On the other hand, those who replace saturated fats with unsaturated fats (found in vegetable oils and nuts) or whole grains lower their heart disease risk.Many people fall back on carbs, especially refined carbs like white bread, when they reduce saturated fat in their diets, said senior author Frank Hu, professor of nutrition and epidemiology. This may in part explain findings from a controversial 2014 paper that called into question recommendations for limiting saturated fat for heart health, and led to headlines promoting the return of butter.“Our research does not exonerate saturated fat,” said Hu. “In terms of heart disease risk, saturated fat and refined carbohydrates appear to be similarly unhealthful.”The study appears online Sept. 28 in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology. This is the first prospective analysis to directly compare saturated fat with other types of fats and different types of carbohydrates in relation to heart disease risk.Hu and colleagues looked at diet and health information from participants in two long-running trials, the Nurses’ Health Study (84,628 women) and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study (42,908 men), who were free of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and cancer at baseline. Diet was assessed by food frequency questionnaires every four years. During follow-up, the researchers documented 7,667 cases of coronary heart disease (CHD).They estimated that replacing 5 percent of energy intake from saturated fats with equivalent energy intake from either polyunsaturated fats, monounsaturated fats, or carbohydrates from whole grains was associated with 25 percent, 15 percent, and 9 percent lower risk of CHD, respectively. On the other hand, swapping 5 percent of saturated fat calories for the same amount of refined carbohydrates and sugars was not associated with CHD risk. These analyses took into account cardiovascular risk factors such as age, body mass index, smoking, and physical activity.“Our findings suggest that the low-fat, high-carb trends of the 1980s and 1990s are not effective in reducing risk of CHD,” said Yanping Li, co-first author with Adela Hruby, both researchers in the Department of Nutrition. “It means that individuals should not replace saturated fat with refined carbs or vice versa. Dietary recommendations to reduce saturated fats should specify their replacement with unsaturated fats or with healthy carbohydrates, such as whole grains,” said Li.Other Harvard Chan School authors of the study included Sylvia Ley, Dong Wang, Stephanie Chiuve, Laura Sampson, Eric Rimm, and Walter Willett.

first_img The situation was markedly different in the summer when – in the light of a £40,000,001 bid from Arsenal – the Uruguay international claimed the club had reneged on a deal which would allow him to join a side playing in Europe’s elite. However, a promising start to the season sees the Reds in third, behind Chelsea only on goal difference, with a number of positive performances. “He sees a genuine chance for us to make that (top four). He is happy here. “From a club perspective, we made a stance last summer, not only for Luis but for every player. “If we think it is time to sell a player, we will. If not we won’t.” While the impact of Suarez and Daniel Sturridge has not been in doubt this season, Liverpool’s midfield were criticised for being too pedestrian in the defeat at Arsenal last weekend. Critics were quick to point out the 33-year-old Gerrard appeared to have little influence on the game from a passing or running point of view while speed has never been an attribute Lucas has been blessed with. While Rodgers did not exactly dismiss suggestions his midfield lacked the necessary speed, he did counter the argument. “We have got very good players and in that game Arsenal had outstanding ability,” he added. “In fairness to Steven and Lucas, they worked very hard. Steven picked up an injury (to his hip) and struggled in that part of the game because of that. “There’s no doubt in the modern game you have to have that mobility in midfield but you also need the balance. “You also need players who are technically good, can play and can participate in the game tactically and of course the modern game gets quicker every year. “That is an area you need mobility in and for us, going forward, it is something, as with every area, we will try to improve.” Press Association Suarez has contributed significantly already after returning from suspension, scoring six times in five league matches. Earlier in the week, captain Steven Gerrard said he thought the 26-year-old would reconsider his position at the end of the campaign depending on whether the club had qualified for the Champions League. But Rodgers has always insisted he has had nothing but commitment from the striker. “I haven’t been given anything to the contrary,” he said. “Looking and speaking to him Luis is as happy as he has ever been. “He recognises we have a real genuine chance this year of breaking in there (the top four). “Last year was about transition and the second season was about improvement and he has seen that. “He had a difficult summer but he has come back and he is more mature and his performance level has been really high. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insists striker Luis Suarez is “as happy as he’s ever been” as he can see the club has a genuine chance of qualifying for the Champions League.last_img read more
