I teach physical education at a local college, and I had a conversation with a student a few weeks back, that I have also had with others following a Paleo/High Saturated Fat diet.  They argue that a diet high in saturated fat is healthy, and that it has not been linked to cardiovascular disease, and that there is no proof otherwise.  I have asked for actual scientific proof that a diet high in saturated fat is actually "healthy", and no one can provide it; not that I will be easily swayed anyway.  Can anyone on here direct me to such an article, book, or study?  Or how you might argue the assertion?  Thanks.

Good Calories, Bad Calories: Fats, Carbs and the Controversial Science of Diet and Health

by Gary Taubes


I found this book to be very eye opening and well researched. It's a large read so I recommend getting the audio book.  I haven't  read anything else that addresses high fat vs high carb in such great detail.
