Dietary fats have gotten a bad rap for some time, but the truth of the matter is that we humans not only like the taste of fat, we also need it - to supply energy and aid in the absorption of fat soluble vitamins. The Problem with Fat: But as useful as fat may be to your body, many clinical studies have clearly demonstrated that diets high in cholesterol and saturated fats are associated with a higher risk of heart disease and some cancers. Good Guys vs. Bad Guys: Equally true, recent clinically studies have shown that some fats are bad for your health while others can actually be good for you. Dietary fat is essentially made of three kinds of triglycerides: saturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated. Research has demonstrated that limiting saturated fat and increasing monounsaturated fats can be beneficial - hence the description good fat. Omega-3 and omega-6 are two kinds of polyunsaturates that, if consumed in the right ratio, appear to be health promoting.
