Saturated fat increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases
A high consumption of saturated fat increases the risk of a high cholesterol level and may cause hardening of the arteries. These are risk factors for developing cardiovascular diseases.
By replacing saturated fat with polyunsaturated fat, you can reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases. You should therefore limit your consumption of unhealthy fats and cook with olive oil and polyunsaturated fats, such as sunflower oil.
