Clearly one of the biggest push-backs to eating more fat is that somehow it's going to cause a stroke or heart attack. This was actually recently looked at in the New England Journal of Medicine where they compared the standard low-fat diet to a diet that has a lot of extra added fat. It is incredible that this study was halted mid-way through because there was such a dramatic disparity. Those people eating the most fat had an incredibly improved outcome in terms of their risk for heart attack, stroke, or death.
